This is take out food, there is no dining available. The food is great, but you will pay the price of a fine dining experience. Sandwiches are good, but $11 or more a piece without anything extra. Their take home family meals are expensive too....More

I enjoy the Yellow Carrot, I personally think their food is too rich and overdone with seasonings. They have tasty treats and sandwiches. Not sure if they have gluten free, haven't been back since I have been GF.

They have divine GF cupcakes (although quite pricey) that are great for a special event. More a 'deli' than a 'restaurant'. Their chips are fantastic! They also have great take and bake selection (again, expensive) but if you need something quick and delicious, this is...More

Try YC's beet chips with one or more of their great jams and spreads like Cherry Habanero. While there pick up the decadent carrot cake or chocolate cupcake.

I am surprised to read some of the reviews on TripAdvisor. I am a trained chef and former restaurateur. The chef/owner has a great reputation and is well known for their catering. Receiving a gift or dessert from this place is a compliment. Not a...More
