Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop Cultivates a Loyal Following
There’s nothing like a Bobbie from Cap’s, no matter who tries to duplicate it. Even vegetarians swear by this Dover landmark for its vegetable-based cold cuts and garden-fresh sandwiches.
Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop
It’s been almost 37 years since Lois Margolet opened the first Capriotti’s and offered its now-legendary signature sandwich, The Bobbie, a pile of real roasted turkey—not cold cuts—heaped with stuffing and cranberry sauce on a sub roll. One innovation led to another—Capriotti’s was one of the first places to offer subs made with vegetable-based cold cuts—and that led from one shop to another to another to, now, more than 30 across the country. The Dover store was among the first few. Fans flock to Gateway for great meatball sandwiches and other signature items like The Capistrami—mounds of pastrami, cole slaw and Russian dressing on a crusty torpedo roll. 130 Gateway South Blvd., Dover, 698-3090, capriottis.com
