Royal Crown has two sides of their operation. The first is a bakery that sells giant tiramisu, tri-color cookies, and other Italian sweets of which you’ll want several pounds. The other half serves savory lunch stuff, including fresh-baked hero rolls with provolone, prosciutto, sweet soppressata, black olives, and roasted peppers. Both takeout counters have a shared outdoor area full of umbrellas, tables, and potted plants.
