We did not have lunch here but only stopped to shop. There are lots of great cooking themed and local gifts. Very convenient walk to Brightleaf as well.

Visiting son for Thanksgiving and he brought us here. We had fun scanning the store for interesting items. Had lunch while there and everyone enjoyed. Indoor or outdoor seating available. Great story and highly recommend.

Great deli with interesting food offerings. Eclectic selection of items for the browser, home entertainer, creative, gourmet. You could spend hours in this shop. Try the 3 salad plate. I wish they had desserts.
