Dino's Cafe

A neighborhood gem tucked on the corner of Salem and Prince Street, Dino's Cafe is a small, unassuming establishment offering quick, reliable service at casual eat in tables or for take out. The owners are some of the friendliest around. 
They have an extensive menu, all of it that I've tried (think - baked pastas, chewy gnocchi in house made sauce) is excellent, but I generally craved their specialty sandwiches, which come with any number of hot or cold ingredients on a fresh baked 16 inch baguette. It's a great deal at $9 a sandwich, which in my case, always turns out to be two meals! 
The one pictured is the Vegetarian, containing roasted red peppers, roasted plum tomatoes, caramelized red onions and balsamic glazed portabella mushrooms with mozzarella cheese. SIMPLY PREPARED AND IN THAT SOFT, FLUFFY AND JUST A TINY BIT CRISPY BAGUETTE, it's ONE large yet ELEGANT SANDWICH. From chicken pesto or a  cheese steak Italiano, to a caprese with fresh basil and mozarella or an Italian with quality imported meats, I've hardly paused a moment to photograph them all and definitely never took the time to give them their due praise. For a quick and affordable meal, Dino's is hard to beat. Luckily, still don't live too far away!
