"Good Food"

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

Fresh ingredients are key here. Great place to pick up a sandwich & chips and head to Rio Del Mar Beach for a picnic. Love their tuna sandwich. Yummy gelato , too!

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).

This deli has a variety of sandwiches with unique fillings. Like the Thanksgiving turkey sandwich with cranberry sauce. Tastes like Thanksgiving in a sandwich. Good service, also have daily specials. We plan to go back for the specials. You can eat inside or outside.

This well rounded eatery provides generous portions and will prepare your meal to your specifications as well as off the menu. It is an enterprise of love by a member of a local family. The location is easily found just off the freeway and service is fast and friendly. There is something for everyone with a vast selection of sandwiches... More
