The sandwich was discovered serendipitously when early hunters tracked a mastodon to its most ineffectual hiding place—between two pieces of bread. Feast on the fruits of Stone Age ingenuity with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of sandwiches, wraps, baked goods, and drinks at Weighlock Cafe in East Syracuse.
Fresh, bread-bookended fillings, including home-cooked, hand-carved turkey and roast beef, enrich the edible enticements served up at Weighlock Cafe. Specializing in sandwiches ($6.02), the eatery prepares a streamlined menu of bread-bound favorites, including ham, vegetables, and a savory combo of roast beef, turkey, and ham. Diners craving a more tidily ensconced nosh can opt for a wrap ($4.06) stuffed with victuals such as tuna, turkey almond, turkey apple salad, or roast beef with horseradish. Like supervillains and handlebar mustaches, a sandwich and soup make a timeless duo, which diners can bring together by adding a cup of the soup du jour ($2.78). Flavors can include tomato tortellini, southwest chicken corn chowder, or gumbo. A sugary coda of brownies ($1.34) or muffins ($1.85) mollifies sweet teeth, and a warm quaff of cappuccino or hot chocolate ($2.55 each for large) warms bellies and rouses the senses. Alfresco munchers can unwind on Weighlock Cafe’s sun-splashed patio, enjoying a cool summer breeze or challenging passing clouds to staring contests.
