Sertinos Cafe


Delicious food is at the heart of everything we do. Customers can enjoy indulging themselves a little every day, without spending a lot.  Our menu includes custom-made sandwiches, fresh soups and salads, specialty coffees and teas, even premium ice cream. Whether it’s an early morning bite, a satisfying lunch, an afternoon treat or a casual dinner, Sertinos Cafes always satisfies. 

A Difference You Can Taste  

In a world of pre-made, over-processed food, Sertinos Cafes insists on starting with the freshest, finest ingredients.  From our large variety of sandwiches to our artisan coffees, hand roasted in small batches from the various coffee growing regions of the world – we put taste first every day.  As our regulars will tell you, our premium brewed coffee and espresso drinks are superb – many say the best in town. We offer a variety of coffee blends and premium single-origin coffees, as well as loose leaf teas, imported hot chocolates, blended iced drinks and Italian sodas all day long. A wide variety of fine pastries, muffins and baked treats are delivered fresh to Sertinos Cafes every day.  

Sertinos makes wonderful sandwiches all day long – from delicious breakfast sandwiches to hot toasted subs, mile-high deli sandwiches, and our signature grilled Panini.  We use only premium cheeses and whole-roasted meats for better flavor. The portions are generous, with no corners cut or ingredients skimped. Each sandwich is made fresh to order – the way a really good sandwich should be. (We even have our own exclusive toasting process to ensure perfect results!)  Many Sertinos Cafes also offer premium, high butterfat ice cream and all natural  frozen yogurt treats for an irresistible after meal indulgence or snack.
