“Liquor for your needs....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

I promised these guys i would wear bikini bottoms and heels next time I was in the store. They have hard liquor. Booze is quite fun for paddle boarding, kayaking, swimming with your dog, and in general most moments, not limited too and possibly also including hot tubbing, dinner, after dinner, on decks, during beautiful hikes at eagle rock, or just sitting with your dog.

Remember this... these clerks are the friendliest, most affable chaps. It's a good place to be. Ahh.. to carry the west shore in my pocket.

“Amazing Sandwiches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

I keep on going back and forth which is my favorite. The JPO - a roast beef rueben style on a ciabatta roll or Edna's BLAT - brown sugar glazed bacon, lettuce, tomato and avocado.

“Goumet Mustards Abound”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

We stopped here while on a trip around Lake Tahoe. There was road construction in the area, making our decision to stop a 'no-brainer'. Inside, we purchased some pasta salad and a jar of gourmet mustard to complement the sandwich fixings we had brought on the trip for a picnic. Somewhat pricey, the pasta salad was quite delicious. The Brown Sugar Balsamic Mustard was simply fantastic. Sample tastes of two or more mustards are free for the asking at the deli, depending on what they have open at the time.
