Local Inspiration, Global Tastes.
Marcona is a gourmet sandwich and fine foods purveyor offering Melrose locals and destination diners an adventurous and affordable, yet upscale, option for lunch, a snack, or a quick bite. We combine the concept of a simple, East Coast sandwich shop with European culinary influences, and sweeten the deal with a variety of homemade bakery goods. We also offer a full catering menu well-suited for private and corporate gatherings of any size, or everyday office lunch orders.
We use only the finest ingredients, both locally-sourced and imported from around the world, in line with our menu’s mash-up of local and global flavors. Our space includes a small retail section, selling dry goods and fine foods, and the shop's walls serve as a showcase for local artists, with regularly-changing exhibits.
Expect seasonal changes and experimental ingredients. Expect rich flavors and healthy innovation. Expect a personal, neighborhood touch and attentiveness. But above all, expect to come back.
