“Great spot to shop and lunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

Love the selection of specialty items in the store. One stop shopping for wine and cheese! Good for a light lunch too.

“Good food, fun place to shop”

We ate lunch here and the food was good. Very fresh. The restaurant is part of a shop that has all sorts of unique food and other interesting items. Good place to wander.

“The Gourmet Shop.........tempt your palate!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

Once you get through the line waiting for tables at the Cafe, move onto the Gourmet Shop - it features great wines, gourmet coffees, rabbit and pheasant sausage, fantastic cheeses and sinful desserts. The staff is super friendly and knowledgeable. It's a busy, upbeat, fun place to buy all kinds of yummy goodies!

“Good lunch spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Always a good place for lunch. Crowded. Good menu. We shared the cheese plate-good. I had the chicken salad sandwich on croissant with deviled eggs. It was very good. The five of us had different things and all enjoyed. Good place for lunch and also a glass of wine. I will be back!

“Great little find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Great little cafe inside a gourmet shop. Delicious, fresh food and wine with a selection that is sure to please everyone. The epicurean shop it is attached to makes it that much more fun! The only place I have ever seen dark chocolate covered espresso beans dispensed from a gumball machine:)
