They have such a huge selection of choices. From ramen, pizza, sandwiches and quinoa bowls. This is my favorite place to get quinoa. They have a huge snack selection that has items from outside of the US.

We picked up lunch one day. This place is great to pick up sandwich or hot meal. They have everything in this deli. It's a great place to pick up quick breakfast if you are staying near.
