Naples•ism: All Things Naples Florida

It’s true … I write about food a lot. I can’t help it. There are so many places here in Naples that I swear we could eat at a different restaurant every night for a year and still not get to them all.

I do get excited when I see something from home and beings that I am a Jersey girl, I am fond of New York eats. Which is why I must tell you about Straight From New York, if you haven’t already discovered it yourself.

Tucked away in a small plaza just off Immokalee Road in front of the Quail Creek community, Straight From New York in Naples does it right … from bagels to muffins to cookies to chicken salad.

I have to admit, I’m not a huge bagel fan, but I understand from fellow Northeasterners that Straight From New York does them like they do in the great city it is named after. Personally, I go for the chicken salad and the bologna – yum! And I love looking at the cookie display. It reminds me of those big family gatherings where someone would inevitably bring a huge tray of Italian cookies covered in a rainbow of sprinkles.

So, if you’ve been desperately searching for the baked goods and the other delicious treats you know and love from the Northeast, stop in Straight From New York.
