We love the sandwiches, salads, deli, and wine section (huge) here. Fresh, tasty, and healthy selections abound. You will love it, too.

Nice variety of foods that were very international and good. Wanted a California wine and they mostly carry International wines which is great but could add a few domestic wines. Really long line of people waiting for this store to open on a Saturday!!

I wish I would have discovered this cafe/store earlier in my trip as I would have probably eaten lunch there each day. The layout of the cafe is a bit hard to figure out at first, but for the most part the staff is helpful in getting you turned around. While eating I found out you could just sit and... More
