Good deli sandwiches

Good deli sandwiches. Large enough to fill you up, I couldn't finish mine. Located just a couple of blocks off Ocean Ave, it's centrally located and convenient for a quick snack, sandwich, ice cream, etc.

Nelson's is a "local" store which has the typical offerings plus very nice wines, deli, and can cater. Outstanding customer service.

Absolutely love Nielsen Market. Very high quality wine and deli. Lots of shelf items only available at gourmet locations throughout the west coast. Really spot on location for a quick bite or fancy lunch.

There aren’t many stores near the centre of carmel, it’s on San Carlos St and 7th. Everything you would need and sandwiches made to order. Really good quality reasonably priced we bought our lunch including wine and sat in the sun overlooking the sea in our room.

The food, variety, healthy choices~ so impressive. Breakfast sandwiches, yes! Delicious!

Great place to grab a snack, soda, sandwich or stock up for lunch or dinner provisions before you take a walk on the beach. Good local wine and liquor selection.

Several Trip Advisor reviewers are unhappy with Neilsons, writing that the clerks are rude and not helpful. My experience is very different. I have shopped there 3 times this trip and found the clerks to be friendly and helpful.

Small grocery store, but has some great items. Can find basic staples for your trip. Sells alcohol, deli items, general food items, toiletries, and they grill outside daily for quick lunches.

It was so disappointing to return to this "mom and pop" institution in beautiful Carmel to find the service to be below standard. There was an extensive line, this pre-concourse weekend, and instead of assisting the customers and adding a checker, the woman in charge ignored her customers and proceeded to prepare for the closing of the store. I think... More
