If you’ve ever wondered what makes Philly cheesesteaks so good, a lot of it is due to the Sarcone’s rolls that the best ones are made with. The Italian Market bakery makes over 25 types of bread every day, and you can order it ahead of time and pick it up in the store if you’re worried they might sell out. They also make square pizzas that are worth the trip alone, and you should always finish with a cannoli - they use the same recipe that they did when they opened in 1918.
