“A must stop for healthy foods!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

Downstairs is a natural foods market downstairs with a salad bar, deli, smoothie bar upstairs. Jonathan at the deli counter was exceptionally helpful in helping me find the right ingredients for a sandwich to accommodate my dietary allergies so that I could have a delicious fresh sandwich! All the other sales staff were helpful and friendly, which made for a pleasant experience in the store.

The large windows on the front of the two-story store make eating there a bright, airy, pleasant environment if you have the time. Or they will wrap your selections to take with you.

“Healthy Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

Marlene's is just across the street from the Marriott. It is a regular stop for me as the deli has good, healthy food (this is a natural food sort of a market). Salad bar, sandwiches, deli case ... it's worth trying.

“The best healthy option out there!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2011

Their Tacoma location is so quaint and homey feeling. You can get a homemade healthy meal and eat in a pleasent cafe setting. They have everything from fresh squeesed juice and smoothies to homemade soups and sandwiches along with a beautiful salad bar. And the fresh made dessert are fantastic! They even have things pre-wrapped so if you don't have time to dine in you can just pick out some goodies and go. And the employees are so friendly. The Federal Way location is bigger with Deli located upstairs about the market. It has huge windows letting in the sunlight, when there is sun, and a fantastic mural of Mount Ranier covering the entire wall in the cafe seating area. They have more optionns in Federal Way, including an espresso bar with non-dairy options. I would recommend this deli to anyone wanting fresh, healthy delicious options in a relaxed setting.

“Very good deli”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2010

If you are looking for a good low key deli with lots of organic and vegetarian options with a great salad bar then this is your place. The food is always good and the staff friendly. It's upstairs from their grocery store which is like Whole Foods but on a smaller scale.
