After inventing his eponymous meal, Lord Sandwich tried to capitalize on his fame with unpopular songs such as "Mr. Sandwich," "Sandwich Around the Clock," and "I Wanna Hold Your Sandwich." Bite into a delicious hit with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of fresh bread and deli fare at Columbus Baking Company and Columbus Meats and Cheeses, located downtown on Pearl Street.
In business for more than 115 years, Columbus Baking Company has slaked the area's deafening hunger for fresh bread and deli meats beyond the roomy confines of a century. The unassuming façade brings to mind a simpler age of family recipes, handmade Italian bread, and dogs in hats. Sandwich aficionados can stop by next door to wed bread and sliced meat in marital bliss at Columbus Meats and Cheeses. Choose a delectable delicacy from the deli's federation of sandwich fillers, such as mortadella, prosciutto, provolone, or black forest ham. The sandwich special⎯three deli sandwiches of one meat and cheese, lettuce, tomato, dressing, and three bags of chips⎯is enough to feed a reasonably peckish family of four, or one insatiable, disembodied mouth ($20).
Columbus Baking Company was featured on CNYcentral.com, Syracuse.com, and Frommer's. The blog Pulled into Syracuse named it the top place for eats in the near northeast neighborhood. Insider Pagers give it a five-star average, and 93% of Urbanspooners like it.
- Using the same brick oven that's been in use for generations, a loaf of freshly baked Italian style bread really doesn't get any better than it does here. – Josef Lorenz, Pulled into Syracuse
- Fresh Italian bread at it's finest. I dare you to not rip into this bread on your way home. If it were any fresher, it would be dough. – Becauseican79, Urbanspoon
