Located in a residential neighborhood about a 10-minute walk from downtown, this historical market and deli has been in operation since 1927, and is where the entire town congregates every afternoon. Expect big, well-made sandwiches (The Dutch Punch and Cal Turkey with hot sauce are our favorites), a great front and side patio, and a well-stocked beer fridge to keep that day-drinking going strong.
