Hogan Brothers’ Acoustic Café was opened in Northfield in October 1991 by Greg Heymans. After seven years at 405 Division in Northfield, Hogan Brothers’ moved down the street to 415 Division. This doubled the space, making room for their in-house bakery and increasing the capacity to serve as many as 1000 customers a day.
And that obviously need that space, since they were voted Best Sub/Sandwich in this year’s poll.
Hogan Brothers’ specializes in hot hoagie sandwiches, featuring their honey-cracked wheat bread, baked from scratch daily, and their signature special sauce. Ingredient choices include Swiss cheese, provolone cheese, mayo, lettuce special sauce (an olive oil vinaigrette), tomato, onions, and mild yellow peppers. Flatbreads include provolone cheese, guacamole, mayo, lettuce, onion, tomato, shredded carrot, and mild yellow peppers. We offer soup and sandwich specials (chili is served every day!), and coffee and espresso from Anodyne Roasters. For dessert we offer twelve flavors of ice cream and homemade cookies and rice krispie bars.
Pro tip: the restaurant’s favorite hoagie is the Combo: ham, salami, corned beef, and all of the toppings.
If it’s your birthday, come on in (with identification, of course!) and get a free half hoagie and a medium fountain drink. If you have the good fortune to travel abroad, bring in a photo of you wearing a Hogan Brothers’ t-shirt, and receive a free half hoagie.
Enjoy your lunch, or your supper, or simply time with friends, at Hogan Brothers’ Acoustic Café.
Hogan Brothers’ is located at 415 S. Division St., Northfield.
