We haven't been there in years and it certainly has changed. The deli was fine but nothing to brag about. The downstairs grocery didn't have what we were looking for but had plenty of beach goodies --sun screen, hats, snacks.

This is a very cute "grocery/deli" but do not expect it to be like Vons or Ralph's. Lots of snacks and adult beverages and even some fun stuff like puzzles and beach balls.

We stopped by the market in the morning to pick up some snacks and beach toys, then went back at lunch. We got sandwiches to go to enjoy on the beach. The food was tasty and I look forward to their wine bar being completed.
