About Us

Novel is a family-owned sandwich shop and bookstore coming soon to Downtown Rochester.


As a husband-wife team, we have brought together our two loves (food and books) to share with the community we are proud to call home. The menu will feature delicious and filling sandwiches and salads. You’ll also find a curated selection of books for all ages, from new releases to classic favorites, with frequent restocks so you’ll always find something new.


We're currently in the design phase and working towards the construction phase. Sign up for our newsletter to be updated as we get closer to opening.
