I'm not sure how I first learned about this place, but it was on my mind, and then on our way to SP's appointment, we drove right past and and at the same time we both said, 'oh, hey, so here's where that place is!' So we decided to check out Merante Brothers Market.
They also sell sandwiches at the deli counter.
To the right is a restaurant, Cucina di Domenica. There are two large communal dining tables and a counter where you can order soup, salad, pizza, panini, pasta. To the left of the market is a cafe, Caffe di Antonio, that sells treats like scones & croissants as well as coffees & teas and breakfast sandwiches/panini. The photo above is the order counter in the cafe. Also in the cafe and outside are these tables:
The servers in the caffe were very friendly and helpful. They offered to heat my sandwich for me. Usually, your order is available for pick up on the right side of the counter area, but they brought my latte and sandwich over to me at the table, which was very nice. It's always tricky wheeling around with a hot beverage and plate of food!
I'm looking forward to going back and trying some gelato and buying some tiramisu.
