Price Range: $6-9

*PIGS ‘N’ FIGS
This sandwich was inspired by Italian heritage and American artisan cheese.  It quickly became one of our biggest sellers. You can’t go wrong with a pairing of black mission figs, speck, local goat cheese & a drizzle of reduced balsamic vinegar on sourdough bread.

THE FARMERS MELT
Firsthand Foods Local NC Bratwurst, arugula pesto (local when in season), provolone on sourdough bread.

THE ORCHARD
Guglhupf Bakery’s rustic house bread, cheddar, sliced apples, rosemary and ham.  (Also available without ham.)

THE MATADOR
Sourdough bread, Manchego cheese and Romesco Sauce (red peppers, garlic and almonds).

*PATTY MELT
A rendition of Alycia’s grandfather’s favorite burger at RI’s Newport Creamery. Our version of the diner classic that we think is one of the best burgers around: a grilled burger with sauteed onions and cheddar on sourdough bread.

*DE-LISH
We hope this is the sandwich that induces nostalgia. Delicious, melty, cheddar on buttered Guglhupf Bakery’s rustic house bread crisped to perfection.

KUBLA KHAN
A new favorite! We smoke a pork shoulder for 8-10 hours after a dry rub is applied.  That home smoked pulled pork is added to sourdough bread with an Asian cole slaw, Dijon mustard and provolone.

BEER AND BACON
A popular choice at concerts and brewery events.  Welsh rarebit, made with local beer, cheddar, bacon & arugula – one mighty sandwich …  maybe even two depending on your vision. Served on sourdough bread.

FRENCH MONSTER
French Onion Soup on a sandwich!  We cook onions in butter wine and herbs until they are soft.  Then we spread them on Guglhupf Bakery’s rustic house bread, add Muenster cheese and grill to perfection!

BUFFALO BLITZ
Sometimes there’s nothing better than a good buffalo sauce.  We toss grilled chicken in ours, add the local pepper jack cheese for an extra kick & serve it on Guglhupf Bakery’s rustic house bread.

FORDHAM
Named after the University Alycia and Paul both attended in the Arthur Avenue neighborhood of the Bronx.  Naturally, coming from a largely Italian neighborhood, the colors of the Italian flag are tucked into this sandwich: Basil pesto, mozzarella, & sun-dried tomato on Guglhupf Bakery’s rustic house bread.

SCARBOROUGH FARE
It’s a running joke that Alycia can’t even make a grilled cheese without Paul adding in his own unexpected twist.  A simple grilled cheese, inspired by the Simon & Garfunkel song: pureed herbs, spread onto sourdough bread & topped with aged gouda.  Unexpected indeed.

  1. Isn’t cheddar from England? Can’t wait to try the Pig n’ Fig. Are there going to be specials or rotating melts?

    • Cheddar IS from England. The original “American Cheese” was a mix or blend of Colby and Cheddar. For now we will just be using the cheddar, but we will probably add a slice of Colby down the road as well. There will be rotating melts!

  2. Holy [expletive deleted]. Insane doesn’t begin to describe this stuff. “The Hangover” will make you want to drink, so you need “The Hangover” to nurse your hangover. 7/7 on the different sandwiches my crew just had for lunch in Raleigh. The big orange machine needs to get back here quick!

  4. I had the Fordham cheese sandwich last night, and it was outstanding. It was so good I told my husband he went and brought the exact sandwich. The only problem was once we got home I wanted another and all day this sandwich has been on my mind. Don’t leave without one to go.

  6. Mmmmmmm…had the Buffalo Blitz and fried brussel sprouts at the Bulls playoffs …super yummy. I got the brussel sprouts to try ( I never get to eat a lot of veggies as my husband HATES them) and was super surprised by the yumminess!! The dip for the sprouts is awesome! I will seek them out again for this fantastic sandwich.

  8. Are there any gluten-free bread options available? If not, can these be ordered without the bread?
