This is a great choice for everything from a lunch sandwich to fine dining for dinner. Exceptionally good salads and entrees to go. They have a mind boggling selection of wines and champagnes. The workers were knowledgeable about the wines so just ask when in doubt. The deli is open until 10:00 each night and i think they feed half... More

Great prepared foods for lunch or dinner and terrific baked goods. Pricey, but this ain't a chain and the quality is high. Friendly staff, too. Locals love it as do tourists.

Tucked away at the back of the store is a little deli with fresh offerings of salads and made to order sandwiches. Grab a Kombucha and enjoy your meal! The Californian Veggie Sandwich is a delight. It's not a date night place but I can't complain when my husband drags me here when it is his night to cook! Everyone... More

Found this by accident while staying in a nearby hotel. Delicious everything! A bit pricey but worth it. Very nice shop, nice people. They will heat up entrees for you if you tell them you are in the hotel nearby. Desserts are fab!

Food is pretty good, but very expensive! Some of the food is better than others. Makes the best pasta salad I've ever tasted and I usually hate pasta salad. Deli items are OK. I eat there about once every 3 or 4 months due mainly to the expense.

We loved the deli sandwiches. It's a small gourmet market with some grocery items, wine, spirits, yummy desserts (get the carrot cake), and a decent sized deli. We loved the sandwiches, but I did not like the eggrolls or the tortellini from the deli case.

Thank ashlandmatt
