What You'll Get
To subvert grumpy monarchs, angry medieval youths scrawled condiment graffiti like "Fran Tanner has plague" or "the king is a jerk" inside their sandwiches. Dig beneath lettuce to bring history to light with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of homemade deli sandwiches, soups, and more at Loaf N Ladle, located on S. Calhoun.
Loaf N Ladle’s menu offers soups, wraps, salads, and deli sandwiches prepared from time-honored family recipes that emphasize attention to detail and hearty ingredients. Sandwich architects with a vision to build a model of the Kremlin out of turkey and pickles can move halfway there with Loaf N Ladle's build-your-own option ($6 for full-size), which allows diners to choose their bread, meat, cheese ($0.25), and toppings such as banana peppers and black olives. The veggie sandwich, filled with sliced cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes, and alfalfa sprouts and garnished with cream cheese ($3.50 for half-size), satisfies any appetite for meatless sustenance, while the hot ham-and-cheese sandwich ($3.75 for half-size) cures cravings for gooey, melted goodness. Sip and slurp Loaf N Ladle's homemade ham and bean with cornbread, cream-of-broccoli, or chicken-noodle soup ($4.50 for a pint, the selection changes frequently). Muffins ($1.25) and cookies ($1.50) are baked daily.
Loaf N Ladle is a family establishment; the current owner's mother and grandmother opened it in 1984, and it has continued to use the family’s time-tested recipes to craft the flavorful lunchtime bites that have made the sandwichery a Fort Wayne mainstay. The chalkboard on which the menu is written and the picnic-y cloths covering the tables make it a friendly, homey spot for a home-cooked meal with friends.
