 BLT From Carmella's

When you're thinking Carmella's Cafe, you're probably not thinking about sandwiches. But maybe you should. They have the "Ultimate BLT" and it really is ultimate. What's the most important part of the BLT? Of course it's the bacon! Most places offer a BLT and you'll get three, four, maybe five pieces of bacon. Carmella's Cafe doesn't skimp out on the bacon on this bad-boy, it's stacked high to fulfill its statement as "ultimate."
