“Not only a grocery store but bakery,. and supply place”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

You might think you are in Macy's when you see all the cooking equipment that is in the store., It is a grocery store which has anything that you might need to do a special recipe,. and a bakery that has loads of yummy stuff,. but be aware that there is a cost for this kind of store and you will be paying more that a normal grocery store., It is worth a visit just to look around.,

“The ultimate gourmet grocery store”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

Although very expensive, this store is not to be missed if you like to cook (and eat). A veritable fairyland of baked goods, cheeses, meats, and produce. I go there when I need exotic mushrooms or cheese, or when nothing but prime meat will do. The number of kinds of olive oil will make you dizzy.

“everything and more”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

try the chocolate cake in the bakery, they sell individual slices that are huge enough for two, and with a fork!!, you will be so happy you did. Upstairs is a well stocked cookbook, kitchen and home store with stuff you never thought you needed, the meat and fish departments are extensive, huge varieties of everything you can imagine.....think mustard and there are too many to count.....

“Unique spices and condiments”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

If you can't find a particular brand of chili powder or cooking oil, try Draegers. They carry non-regional brands and a wide variety of specialty foods. I don't usually do my full grocery shopping there however their deli, bakery, fish market and gift shop upstairs are always a welcome shopping experience. I especially like the underground parking (great during the rainy season)

“Great grocery, bakery, and sandwiches”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

I love Draeger's. As a grocery they have a lot of specialty items that you wouldn't find at safeway. I love walking around and looking at everything. Also, the bakery has some really tasty treats! Stay away if you are on a diet because you won't be able to resist!

The sandwiches from the deli are also really good here. I love the hot pastrami. They throw the pastrami and the bread on the flat-top grill. Everything was super flavorful and delicious - better than I was craving even! Draeger's is a great store. Also check out the upstairs section for kitchen/house gadgets and gifts!
