One day after President Obama made a lunchtime pit stop on Park Avenue, we checked in with the owner of Magnolia’s Deli & Café to see how business was today.

Owner Sue Palermo Friday tells News10NBC she has seen business pick up a little bit and a lot of customers are ordering the new special – the Mr. President. That special is a half of a grilled cheese sandwich on sourdough bread with tomato artichoke soup.

Palermo says the reality of everything that happened Thursday is just starting to sink in. “It's just hitting us all that he truly was here. I mean we know he was here but we're all still in awe of the fact that he came to Rochester and that he picked us. We're very honored."

Palermo said she did bring in some extra workers today to help them accommodate for any extra business.
