We have visited for years especially when camping at San Elijo beach. Pricy, but they stock quality goods and have an excellent deli. Decent vegan offerings are available also.

The tri tip sandwich is called Cardiff crack for a very good reason - I can’t stop thinking about it! If you’re anywhere near this place, do not miss it

The items that are pre-made are average at best. if you orders menu items that are from the grill or freshly made, are excellent

A group of us dropped in for fresh made sandwiches for a picnic. The Cardiff Crack Tri Tip is awesome. We ordered a variety of sandwiches, all of which were very fresh and good.

If you're looking for a veggie bowl with brown rice, then look no further. Seaside Market has the best bowls on the planet, plus you can add (or not) meat of your choice. Fast. Friendly. Delicious!

Good quality and selection all around. Takes patience at busy times but so do all stores. Owners are outstanding community supporters.
