At Levart’s Food, Pizza and Sandwich Shop in Armenia, one can find more than 15 kinds of pizzas – not to mention an unimaginable array of sandwiches and hamburgers. Its shelves are overflowing with spinach, cabbage, potatoes, meats, cheeses and freshly-baked fruit pies. And their ready-to-eat breakfasts, lunches and dinners are available to dine-in, take out or have delivered to your front door.
