The food was all very good. However, it was extremely overpriced! We paid $16 dollars for a chicken breast (no accompanying food - only the chicken) I was not expecting this. Everything was delicious, but I would not return due to the exorbitant pricing for some items.

Dependent on our busy schedules, my wife and I use Carried Away about 2x per week. For the most part they offer very good prepared meals and assorted other dishes.

great place for a quick lunch or to take home something for dinner that tastes home made, quality ingredients, interesting selection, uses local seasonal produce. A little pricey but not as bad as Gayle's!

This place premakes all their food and is like a deli. The curried quinoa salad with mangoes and almonds is always available and worth trying. Very good ceasar salad. Their cookies are beyond outstanding BUT very small for the price. I typically go there and buy food for a couple of days. Food changes daily.
