What's Cooking?

I used to come to this cafe all the time. The sit down service got pretty bad over the years though so it was just easier to do the self serve section and eat it in the cafe. But it's good to hear that they still have great soups and sandwich specials. I still think it's a beautiful market so I'll have to re visit to see what they have this season.


Our habit of having a meal before shopping has led to some wonderful finds, Faye. We try to avoid the busier/crowded times to shop and eat (not many people go to the Grocer on the day after Thanksgiving), so that probably is a factor with service. Bristol Farms has a different inventory and quality of foods available than other grocers; I really like shopping here.


I've been wondering what the cafe was like inside Bristol Farms. It's not too far of a drive for work now so I've been thinking about going over there for a visit. The sourdough grilled cheese looks yummy. I've always loved the croutons they make here and it's one of the only places I can actually find a block of mizithra cheese.


It is such a nice market, Mary. The quality, variety and uniqueness make shopping here an adventure. The Cafe is a must stop and the specials make it interesting.
