So my coworker and I were stuck trying to figure out a healthy lunch one day and after wandering all around College Park (we checked out Sobey's and the new Loblaws at the Maple Leaf Garden), we figured we try Metro and if we couldn't find anything we wanted to eat - we'd just eat at the College Park Food Court.
Luckily (or unluckily for our "healthy lunch"), we saw the weekday specials at Metro and decided to check out the Panzerotti station. It turned out there was a huge line-up for Panzerottis and after eating there on Thursday, it really is no wonder. This was a GREAT Deal! A Panzerotti with your choice of 3 toppings made fresh for you and a drink for $5.65 (incl. tax)? It doesn't get any better than that!
This is HALF of the Panzerotti of Doom:
They have some decent toppings including cubed chicken, roasted red peppers, onions, olives, pepperoni, ham, bacon, cheese, green peppers, mushrooms and a whole bunch more.
The tomato sauce was quite good and the cheese melted evenly throughout my panzerotti.
It was so filling that I couldn't move for like 10 minutes after finishing the half because I was so stuffed I was afraid I would have to slowly waddle back to work (and humiliate myself in the process).
Unfortunately, it got worse later when I had the most severe case of itis after eating ONLY half of this panzerotti. So my conclusion is: you can definitely get a LOT of Value for Money here, but try to bring a friend and split the lunch? I don't think normal people are meant to be able to eat so much in one sitting.

Metro stopped their weekly lunch promotion, but they have some other deals going on:
3 topping Panzerotti with pop for $5.49
We stumbled on this one by chance at another Metro: the promotion was advertised to run until Feb 14th, but for some reason the system still showed the panzerotti deal for $5.49.
It's a great deal! The panzerotti is huge and the crust is pretty good.
They also have mid-week dinner specials
$7.99 for a 16 inch X-Large Pepperoni and Cheese
They make the pizzas right to order and it's a lot of food: try to make sure you invite company over to share or else you'll be eating pizza all week.
