On many days, Reamy sells out her entire inventory of muffins, scones, éclairs, cookies, danishes, brownies, cupcakes and other sweet temptations in an ever-rotating array of flavors.

I get the same thing every time I go, so I was excited to order off of more of the menu for this month’s restaurant review.

Joe Sigler has a lot of history with the building at 216 Fourth Street NW in downtown Canton. At age 20, he started working there at his uncle Sylvester Premier’s Italian restaurant called Premier’s.

Setting out on his own in 2008, Sigler ran the AMVETS eatery nearby (in the space now occupied by Fronimo’s Downtown), then in 2012 returned to 216 Fourth Street, bought the building and opened Triple Nickel/Amvets 555 there.
