Sonia's Near East Market & Deli is located on Park Avenue in Cranston.
Since its 2011 opening, this place has become a beloved local treasure.
Sonia's is owned and operated by the Janigian family, who are of Armenian descent.
The family has a strong work ethic and morals, and they play an active role in the community as well as ensuring their customers always have a good experience.
Browse the shelves of the international market for a wide variety of imported delicacies from around the world.
You'll find food and spices from Armenia, Syria, Lebanon, Greece, Russia, Jordan, Iran, and Turkey as long as plenty of domestic items. There's even an olive bar with imported olives and feta (and it's amazing).
But as lovely as the market is, it's the made to order lunches and dinners that makes this place stand out.
The all-day menu includes a list of signature sandwiches that will blow your mind. The Hill is topped with Italian prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, roasted peppers, and basil, while the Smokey is stuffed with Mesquite smoked turkey and gouda. With over a dozen sandwiches to choose from, you're sure to find what you're craving.
You can build your own bowl, salad, or wrap, utilizing all kinds of fresh ingredients...
... or keep it healthy and traditional by enjoying some falafel.
The all-day menu here is quite extensive. And if you're a local, you can have it all delivered through several third-party apps.
Eventually, we'll be able to gather safely in large groups again... and when that happens, Sonia's can cater your next big event.
Order a Pita Party Platter or a Mediterranean Charcuterie Board for your next milestone party.
All we have to say about the homemade baklava here -- which comes in both pistachio and walnut -- is that you should order it.
Baklava is one of life's greatest pleasures, and this family makes it flawlessly.
