We came for lunch and some take-home treats, but were disappointed that much of the food was the same we can get at a better food market, but at higher prices. First the lunch, a muffuletta sandwich that was not overly stuffed, but made with good quality ingredients and excellent bread. So far, so good. But when we went downstairs to look for some special olives, the selection was underwhelming. We love cheese, and I know there are lots of outstanding ones here if you're willing to pay $25 or more a pound. But a lot of others were the same thing we can get at Wegmans, but at $3 a pound more. There's a lot of luscious looking prepared food, too, but at these prices I'd rather buy good ingredients and make my own.

Wonderful market. We went in to grab a light lunch/snack. The choices were plenty. We ended up getting a fresh baguette and a delicious pre-made cheese plate. The cheese plate included a great variety of cheeses, dried and fresh fruit and nuts. I would definitely go back!

Having relocated briefly to Philadelphia for granddaughter's extensive medical needs, this place served us well! Nourishing, close to homemade items, easy to pick up and prepare delicious items. A little expensive but worth it.

if you love cheese you have to check this out. the selection is awesome and the staff really know their cheeses. the place is dangerous and you can leave with way too many wonderful items if you aren't careful
