We’re typically nervous to try restaurants with names from Billy Joel lyrics, but Mama Leone’s is a lot more enjoyable than the bad barbecue place we just made up called We Didn’t Start The Fire. The small Italian bakery is great for breakfast or lunch. They serve a pretty wide selection of savory and sweet baked things, but we really like their paninis, which come on baguettes that always taste like they just came out of the oven. The squares of stuffed focaccia are also delicious and the size of an iPad.
