For old-school Italian sandwiches, Napoli bakery is the best in class.
The Napoli bakery on Metropolitan Avenue opened in 1981, but had been a bakery before that as well. For three decades the bakery was a great place to go for Italian breads of various sizes. Then they started selling sandwiches.
The bakery started serving sandwiches in October of 2020 in the middle of the pandemic. Another neighborhood favorite sandwich shop, Jerry’s Italian Market, had closed at the start of the pandemic and never reopened. Napoli Bakery’s sandwiches have quickly filled the void left behind.
The bakery’s instagram is now filled with pictures of the colorful, overstuffed sandwiches. Warning: you will immediately want to eat a Italian hero if look at the feed.
More recently, the bakery has added hot pressed panini to the mix as well.
The full selection of bakery breads are still available, also, including large rounds, semolina loaves, pizza rounds, and sausage rolls.
In addition to sandwiches, the bakery is now also stocking a large selection of Italian and Italian-American goods. That includes imported cookies, pastas and pantry items, as well as fresh-made cookies from other parts of Brooklyn. And there is a full selection of Christmas treats from terrone and panettone.
