A big barbeque is going on right outside the market's front door. The smoke filled aroma has a summoning effect to come forth. Enter into this delightful market filled with gourmet goodies for your Summerland picnic excursion. While browsing the beverage section I was tantalized by interesting finds like an all natural orange, jasmine, and nutmeg soda. I also found... More

Locals know it for the deli window of goodies you can order. The sandwiches are awesome too but the best bet is their tri tip which they cook on premise usually on the lawn area every weekend. They have picnic tables set up so you can eat it there or a short drive to Summerland beach for a picnic. The... More

Good spot to get some groceries if you are living in the area. They also have a good deli where you can pack a meal to go.

Located just off the 101, you'll find this fully stocked deli market. They have ready made choices and will cook to order from their chalk board menu. There's plenty of seating indoors or outside.

Walking in it appears to be an average market with a deli counter but the deli choices are ample and delicious. You cannot see custom made or choose from a freshly made, wrapped up, ready to go breakfast burrito. I chose he latter and very much enjoyed my chorizo and egg burrito. They have a great selection of juices and... More

Excellent sandwiches made to order, fantastic deli area with fresh home made sides, terrific salads complete with wine, beer in a cozy market carrying all the essentials. Service is always pleasant even if there is sometimes a wait. Even better, a lovely park area next door with picnic benches makes this a great stop along the coast. If you happen... More

Have been going to both Cantwell's for years and years. It's like a neighborhood market/deli, it has all the grocery staples that can be found in a larger market ( a little on the pricey side) but it's Deli is one of a kind. Made to order sandwiches, tri tips BBQ on premises weekends. Salads and veggies galore. Lasagna, tamales,... More

I live close to Cantwell's. To my delight, I recently discovered they have the best hamburgers! They are not over salted and are made with quality meat. The lettuce and tomato they use is consistantly fresh. My husband and I usually split one since they are huge, about the size of a dessert plate. My other favorite is the bar-b-qued... More

My wife and I stopped in about 4pm on Sunday, Oct. 12 on our way home from Santa Barbara to Santa Clarita. Pretty much no one in the store. Maybe...2 customers? MAYBE. Might have been only 1 besides my wife and I. No one at the registers, not even an employee manning a register. It seemed like ALL the employees... More
