I ordered several sandwiches for an event. The staff was very friendly and we were very happy with the overall service. The manager was very helpful to give us options for our event, so it made it very easy to prepay our bill and come and pick it up. I would come back for our next event.

I had a quick macaroni salad snack on my way to a nearby appointment. They had a variety of macaroni salads to offer and they guided me to what they felt was the best one. And it was positively addictive! I even considered purchasing another one since it was that good. Unfortunately, there wasn't enough time to try another or... More

I stopped here with a friend for a sandwich and it was really good. They had a lot of gluten free items including bread if you so desire. We sat outside and they delivered the food to our table. They open early if you want to get a sandwich to go or coffee. Enjoy!

If it's your first time, allow yourself extra time to browse the refrigerated case for ready-to-go take out foods and then just to read the menu! Wow -- what do you want to eat, because they have it on the menu! Sandwich choices are great. Order your food, pay and they deliver to your table, even when you are sitting... More

This is a casual deli, order at the counter then get your own beverage etc out of the cooler or soda machine. The food is very good with many different types of sandwiches, hot & cold, wraps, salads, daily specials etc. Healthy food, fresh ingredients, gluten free desserts. This place has it all. It is my favorite place to have... More

Our family stopped here for lunch on our way to Monterey. We weren't disappointed! The salad was fantastic, the sandwich (made gluten free by making it a lettuce wrap) really hit the spot, and the kids' choices were equally tasty. It was a little spendy (hence the 4 stars), but the people were friendly with great customer service, and the... More

Unusual sandwiches that are very good, especially for a deli in this area. Order at the counter and they bring out your food pretty fast, even if there are alot of customers. Really like this hard to find deli (if you're not from around here).

Good selection of wines and pairings. It was a small fun group of people that we met. Their food/deli was excellent!!! Great for breakfast/lunch!
