This is a good place to look for gourmet or hard to find items. It's too expensive for regular shopping trips. The cafe and bakery isn't bad; good to go to on a weekday morning.

Fantastic grocery store, with restaurant. Quite expensive but lots of fine foods and unusual goods that you don't find in your "regular" grocery store. Great International selection. Beautiful flower shop. Easy parking in downtown location.

Although very expensive, this store is not to be missed if you like to cook (and eat). A veritable fairyland of baked goods, cheeses, meats, and produce. I go there when I need exotic mushrooms or cheese, or when nothing but prime meat will do....More
