We stopped by here in early April for breakfast. Nothing fancy, but friendly service, good coffee and good eggs. We ate outside on the sidewalk and had a nice view of the beach and some good people-watching.

There is a nice deli counter in the back with a fairly wide selection even several taco plates besides wraps and standard deli type of sandwiches. The other main restaurants (all two of them) have very expensive meals ($40 lunches at Custom house for example) so don't forget about this place when you are looking for a more reasonably priced...

Basic things for beach goers and last minute hotel snacks and needs. friendly staff and convenient! I think they are dependent on the few hotels and mostly the beach goers who need drinks and snacks.

Not sure why they call this a grocery store. It has a deli counter and chips and pop etc but the actual grocery part is small. There is a lot of cheese sticks and you can get some milk and half and half.

We ordered one roast beef sandwhich which was enough for both of us. It was very good. The place is clean and has a variety of items.

Getting a sandwhich on a busy day. When the beach is busy so is the Avila Grocery and Deli. They make pretty good sandwiches for about $9.95 each. They are fresh but probably not worth the $10.00. They do have a variety of drinks and snacks also available.
