I couldn't believe what I waked into! Quality and passion are so evident in this prime location. We came back over and over. As out-of-town visitors, we got to choose picnic items, fresh fruit and to taste the best prepared foods. Cheeses and meats, desserts and condiments. No comparison in Philadelphia

This was a very nice little market offering a wide variety of cheeses, meats, and assorted other gourmet groceries. Knowledgeable and friendly staff made this a pleasant stop.

Breakfast time in the city. You want good coffee, something sensible (maybe) and delicious (definitely) to start the day. Maybe some fresh fruit, or yogurt parfait or croissant or fancy muffin. And you don't want a big, expensive production. This is the place. Lunchtime in the city. You want a good sandwich made with the best ingredients and outlandishly delicious... More

Yes it's expensive. You get what you pay for. This is the real deal and it cost money. Expensive isn't expensive if you get value. Great option for lunch if you go upstairs. Best cheese and cured meat selection anywhere.

This was the real deal Italian deli! Downstairs grocery and cheese cave were spectacular! The fruits, vegetables and salads were a rainbow of freshness! I went upstairs for a prosciutto and fig pizza!! Excellent! I would get that every time but I want to try a sandwich too!!

if you're in the neighborhood:fine, otherwise, don't make a special trip.They tout the cheese and speciality food items, but Whole Foods does a better job with variety and price. Never thought i'd see the day when Whole Foods was a bargain.

One of my favorite places to visit while in Philadelphia! Actually, moved to Florida and have food shipped every holiday....I must admit their online shipping and delivery service has suffered in the past few years, but I keep coming back for more because their meats and cheeses are so ridiculously delicious!!! Highly recommend a visit!!
