Of the many old town Louisville dining options, I’m partial to the Porch Deli & Market, where the husband-and-wife team of Pete and Anne Pflum have created a friendly neighborhood environment—the coolest touch is tables made from old doors with glass on top. All of the delicious sandwiches are based on freshness and quality ingredients. I rarely depart from the Jersey Joe—two meats (make it turkey and roast beef), Swiss cheese, coleslaw and Thousand Island dressing on light rye. Anne is forever experimenting with a delicious homemade Italian wedding soup or white bean chicken chili. But the Porch’s coup is the pork roll breakfast sandwich. In Jersey and Philly, pork roll is a traditional morning treat, but not many folks out West know about this salty upgrade from the other breakfast meats. With an egg and cheese on a kaiser roll…well, whaddya know, breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
