Help please with my monster craving. Looking for the best Caprese sandwich in the Triangle--tomato, basil and fresh mozzarella, anyone?

Looking for something fresh, yummy and fantastic bread--thoughts?

Thanks in advance!

    I think the best caprese sandwiches are actually made at home. Simple to make and so good with really fresh ingredients (tomatoes and basil from the garden or farmer's market).

    I did have a decent one at Carmine's in Chapel Hill awhile back. Unlikely to be the 'best in the Triangle' by any means, but it hit the spot. They serve theirs on ciabatta.

      The only caprese sandwich I've tried was at Cinelli's, and I'd call it mediocre at best. Skip it and make one at home.

        I had a nice one at Nofo recently, but it was a special that day (not on the regular menu).
