This is one of those gourmet store/deli/restaurant combinations and a good one. For lunch we were looking for a different sandwich and found it here. I had a beef brisket with pickled onion and pimento cheese. Very good. My wife had an excellent ham and Bree with Apple. There are also local beers on tap and a gelato station. Different... More

We love stopping in for lunch. The prices of sandwiches are a little steep so we usually end up splitting a sandwich and having some soup which is very reasonable, and very delicious. The food is always very fresh, and freshly prepared.

We always return there whenever we stay in VB. Good place for lunch or for take out. Vast variety of sandwiches and salad is available. Could seem to be a bit pricy but it’s totally worth it.

Great Sandwiches in a clean atmosphere. Service was quick and the food very fresh. Nice little market where you can buy artisan cheeses, flavored peanuts drinks to go and my favorite - smartmouth IPA mustard.

This place has very unique and tasteful sandwiches and salads. Wide variety of foods and very healthy selections. Also a wide variety of wines, beers and sodas and deli selections for take out. One block off the beach so very easy to walk to. Great lunch place to eat in or take out.

This was my first visit -- chose based on Trip Advisor recommendations -- The HillTop sandwich is amazing and one of the popular choices ... I had the lunchbox which includes chips and a dessert (the 7 layer dessert bar was recommended by the staff) Loved all of it. There are many deli and salad options, cookies, gelato, wine selection...
