Without sandwiches, cafés would have to swaddle deli meats and cheeses in tiny blankets, leaving the nation's babies completely naked. Save coverings for miniature kin with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of lunch fare at Clayton Bakery & Cafe.
Clayton Bakery & Cafe sandwiches a bevy of meats cooked on site and ingredients sourced locally whenever possible between slices of freshly baked bread. Zesty pork mingles with sliced ham and pickles on the cubano, a hot-pressed handheld fused together with melty swiss cheese and the molten dreams of children waiting in school-lunch lines ($7.50). The turkey-hummus sandwich hosts a colorful circus of roasted peppers, cucumbers, and tomatoes ($6.95), and a classic ham and cheese ($5.45) or homemade roast beef ($5.95) comprise part of the café's arsenal of cold cuts nestled inside 9-inch sub rolls with your choice of cheese.
All sandwiches and paninis are as perfectly matched as a chameleon's socks with crispy bagel chips and a freshly ovened treat. Clayton Bakery & Cafe also offers sweet punctuation for savory meals with an assortment of cakes, donuts, and pastries.
Clayton Bakery and Cafe
A glass display case of colorful cakes, cookies, and pastries greets guests as they enter Clayton Bakery and Cafe, along with the enticing aroma of freshly baking bread. The family-owned establishment staffs a team of local artisanal bakers and decorators, who use local and natural ingredients when whipping up baked goods and a lunch menu of hearty sandwiches, paninis, and daily soups. Chefs roast all of their beef and pork fresh each day, and distribute their signature rolls to local venues such as Ray's pizza and Clayton Steakhouse. Upon request, the bakery can inscribe customized cakes with birthday greetings, personal messages, or a favorite chapter from James Joyce’s A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.
