On site of the hotel we were in, it was very handy for essential's and great deli sandwiches! Prices for sundry's were pretty high but deli food was reasonable! Would recommend the food here!

They have a decent espresso machine, and make acceptable espresso - that is better than people who don't know what they are doing/don't care but not an expert cup. Food is pretty good, probably preferable to many other places in the area you could go, but I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here. I'd return.

In town with my brother for a visit to Stanford. Have stayed at the Creekside inn 3 times and always have to go to the driftwood for sandwiches. Been here three days and are 9 sandwiches in. My wife came this time and got hers wrapped in lettuce. Great people great food a must do. Thanks Driftwood.

If you are at the Creekside (or even if you are not) this is great for sandwiches, beer to go, and ice cream. (And they have a small selection of liquor. Heh, heh). I've been coming inthere for several years and the faces are constant. That is a good thing as they can get very busy at lunch. But they... More

I enjoyed very nice sandwiches in this shop for a few nights while staying in the Creekside Inn adjacent to it. Good food, fine service, plenty of variety. One night there was even entertainment provided by a local movie crew making a video inside. The owner enjoys chatting with customers.

The owners of the deli are extremely friendly and quite helpful. The breakfast sandwiches are very good. The ice cream bar hit the spot in the evening.

We bought a few items in this market and loved the old time/authentic feel of the meat/deli counter and coffee counter. Wish we had discovered the first day of our stay~

Great choice of sandwiches, freshly made salads, soups all made in house. Accompanied by well sorted mini market, large selection of bottled beers and wines to go.

I have been going to this place for almost 1.5 years now on a weekly or biweekly basis. I'm a regular and they know me by name. It is inside a Deli with subway style counter. Really friendly crew and even better service. Chicken pesto on sourdough role is out of the world! This place gets crowded during lunch time(... More
