What a Fun Place. International speciality foods lining self after shelf throughout the store. Luscious chocolates candies & amazing jelly beans! Beautiful gifts items too. Deli items & hard-to-find cheeses. Southern Seasons is a culinary delight!

Visited and it appears some renovations are in progress. Lots of the gadgets to make your kitchen great. Retake time to stroll the aisles and see what is hiding. Lots of wine to select and the confectionery counter is awesome.

We had lunch at Southern Season yesterday--and it was disappointing. Some the lunches were good, but the service was very, very slow. Several people had french fries which were under cooked and actually cold. The server offered to replace them--at the end of the meal....More
