Funaro’s serves up student-friendly meals


by Amanda Hintgen

Roasted peanuts, nougat, caramel and milk chocolate mixed to the perfection of a commonly known candy bar, Snickers. Now imagine this gooey goodness hidden in a plump peanut butter cookie. It is the real deal and can be found at Funaro’s Deli and Bakery.

With the weather getting colder day by day, be sure to check out the Soups of the Day. I recommend getting a bread bowl for two reasons:

1. Buttery toasted to perfection bread, in the shape of a bowl

2. Save the environment!

At my recent visit to Funaro’s I got Italian Noodle and Meatball Soup, a delicious mixture of noodles, Italian spices and meatballs in a warm soothing broth.

If soup isn’t your cup of tea, order a sandwich made to your precise desire. Choose your bread-wheat, white, croissant, wrap, it’s your choice. Next, choose between a variety of sandwich meats or sandwich fillings like egg salad, chicken salad, tuna salad, etc. Once you have made up your mind, you can add your favorite toppings.

I ordered a soft and flaky croissant encasing delightful chicken salad with lettuce, cucumbers and pickles. Yum.

Funaro’s is located on the corner of The Square at 201 North Buxton Street Indianola, Iowa 50125, perfect walking distance from campus. The service is remarkable. The staff welcomes you and thanks you for coming in, your food even gets brought to you. With a college budget, Funaro’s is a great place to go grab something quick and delicious to eat.

Go give it a try yourself!
