The deli and café serves some of the most authentic Italian food in the area. It’s not fine dining, but nor does it want to be. It’s surrounded by licensed, flashy venues that do what they do very well, and Mercato must be praised for doing something different. For breakfast, coffee, pastries or a lunch, it’s a great option. And being able to take some of the goods home is a nice touch. Buy pizza by the slice, like you do in Italy, or try some of the daily-baked bread. You won’t be disappointed.
