From killer breakfast sandwiches to fresh produce coming soon. Giacomo’s Italian Deli and Springdale Market-Stamford, CT

22 May

Bacon, egg, and cheese on Terra Nova Italian bread. #Eyegasam

Update:  Giacomo’s Springdale Market is now open!

When you come into Giacomo’s Italian Deli, you’re probably greeted by the smiley, always happy and chipper owner, Jack (Giacomo in Italian) Delli Carpini.  We admit it…it’s kind of overwhelming when you enter Giacomo’s because there are so many great options available.  So far we’ve only had breakfast, but can’t wait to try their panini’s and sandwiches next! As for breakfast, you can order a fresh made full diner-like breakfast or just a breakfast sandwich for on the go. Our fave so far has been the breakfast sandwiches.  They must be ordered on the Terra Nova Italian bread that he gets in from Arthur Ave.  He also has loaves on sale at the store so you can feed your addiction even when you can’t come right back to Giacomo’s.  In fact, there are lots of other things for sale that you’d expect at any good Italian deli, like pasta salads and espresso.

Okay, onto our go-to breakfast dish when we have a lazy Sunday:  bacon, egg, and cheese on Terra Nova Italian bread.  The bread is buttered and is toasted on the grill and comes out crispy, toasty, but also still with that great chewy consistency that you get with Italian bread.  They aren’t cheap or skimpy with the bacon, like some places can be.  The bacon is thick, crispy, and full of flavor and adds a great smokiness to the sandwich.  They cook it on the dark side, but that’s the way we love it. The eggs are fresh and cooked in thin layers that are folded on top of each other.  They do it right here.  You go somewhere else nearby and you get frozen eggs or you go to a bagel shop and you get a microwaved version of an egg.  A disgrace, if you ask us.  Finish it up with some American cheese that melts down all gooey, adding more depth and a good variety in texture.  This is a killer breakfast sandwich and is worth it, and the sausage, egg, and cheese is also really good, too.  The sausage patties they use are full of great spice and flavor.  

They do great justice to complete breakfasts too.  You always see a steady stream of people ordering food to go, or sitting down to enjoy a nice bite, whether it’s breakfast or lunch.  So, it’s no wonder why Jack is opening up Giacomo’s Springdale Market right next door.  We asked him about his plans for his market, and he told us, “If you can find it at a supermarket, you’ll probably be able to find it there.”  They’ll have fresh produce and products, especially nice Italian staples like the Terra Nova bread.  What we’re really excited about is that they’ll have prepared, ready to eat meals available to buy.  It doesn’t get better or easier than that, does it?

We live pretty close by to this great Hope Street location that’s between Sherwin Williams and First County Bank, so we’re planning on riding our bikes down a lot to get some fresh food for our meal that night.  Sometime in June October November we should see the doors open and get a taste of what’s in store for Stamford.  It’s open! Until then, we’re going to hold off on giving Giacomo’s a nom rating, but, we’ve already had a taste, and we declare:  it is good.

    Hi there! Wish I had thought to ask your name when we met you today at Sierra Grille, if you get this. Nice to meet an admirer. That means a lot to us. Tell us what you think when you try the Giacamo’s breakfast sandwich with bacon. :)

    OK, you guys are amazing! I had no idea this place existed. You are teaching me so much about Stamford and I really appreciate it. The fact that they are open Sundays is really awesome because my favorite Stamford egg-sausage-cheese sandwich place (Vigilante’s) isn’t. Can’t wait to try this place!

      Thanks. :) You know, it’s easy for us to find Giacomo’s because it is literally walking distance from our house. We still have to try their other food, but we’re smitten with their bacon, egg, and cheese! :) Glad we could help expand your breakfast sandwich arsenal. :P How is Vigilante’s? We’ve always wanted to try it.
