Year-round sandwiches, pizza and paninis that won't break the bank
By Maggie Kulbokas
Woe is the hungry Cape Codder looking for something to eat in the off-season--especially on the Outer Cape when many of your favorite spots seal up their kitchens until spring.
If you find yourself a bit peckish on your way to or from Provincetown, pull into Savory Pizza Grill on Route 6 in Truro for a truly tasty bite.
Savory is a casual and cool eatery serving up stone-fired pizzas, burgers, wraps and some of the best paninis you'll sink your choppers into.
The self-described "flame kissed" pizzas are delicious. Hand tossed dough, a secret sauce and fresh toppings make these pies almost impossible to resist. I recently sampled a plain pizza that heartily withstood a 40 minute ride and a dip in the home oven. Still, the crust was thin and crisp, the cheese was gooey and the chunks of tomato in the sauce gave the pizza a freshness one usually doesn't find in local pizza shops. I am told that a slice while eaten at one of Savory's tables or only a short drive away is sheer heaven.
While pizza is a big draw, the hot paninis also deserve their due. The rolls are fresh (your choice of classic, garlic & herb or rosemary) and the ingredients compliment each other nicely. Savory takes your standard luncheon meats and transforms them into something special like roast beef, cheddar, roasted red peppers and horseradish sauce better known as "The Pistol". Tasty and zingy!
The Angus bacon cheddar burger was grilled to perfection and their hand-cut French fries were out of this world. Hold off on grabbing the salt shaker--the fries were perfectly seasoned.
Vegetarians will also leave happy and full. Savory's menu includes six different salads, veggie panini choices and create your own and signature pizzas such as the Mista (red sauce, cheese, roasted eggplant, roasted red peppers, carmelized onions and roasted garlic).
If it's a little too early for pizza, check out their breakfast sandwiches and pastries, muffins and bagels baked daily in house.
Prefer a cup of Joe or something sinfully sweet? You're still in the right place! Savory's alter ego, Sweet Escape, is a full coffee bar and ice cream shop serving locally roasted coffees and espressos and homemade ice cream. One of a kind flavors like Ryder Beach Rubble, Wicked Mud Flats and Cranberry Bog are made on premises so selections may differ from visit to visit.
Sandwiches range from $6.75 to $8.95, salads run around $7.50 and pizzas come in small (12") starting at $9.95 or large (16") starting at $13.95.
