So Good! – This place is great! They have a wide selection of delicious options! I recommend the soups or the mexican bar. I do have to agree with the last review that the workers are not the nicest, however the food is good enough that it doesn't matter.
Employees need nice pills – stopped in today, a rainy Saturday afternoon with some friends, potential new customers. Had been there before and enjoyed a small salad, but on this visit, because I purchased a few things that were all put in a plastic bag, by the time I arrived at my destination, the dressing had dripped out of the container through the plastic bag and onto my jeans. I now smelled of vinegar dressing. Great. Also, the employees have a very unpleasant attitude, not very helpful, sort of like they are being bothered and don't really want to wait on you. The salad wasn't as flavorful as it had been the first time. Too many onions and not enough seasoning in the dressing, was a little flat. Oh well. At lease if the employees had been nicer, this place has the potential to be a great asset in a changing neighborhood, but it needs work.
finally a place that doesn't have the exact same take out food as every other take out place. – A great place for sandwichs, soups and salads with a refreshing twist. Most of the food items are winners but some of the fares seem a little pricey. My last trip there i was met with somewhat rude staff that acted as if I ruined their saturday night . It isn't that hard to smile or say thanks once in a while. Also, i would avoid certain foods at the end of the day because they are all prepped ahead of time. Some of the meats and vegetables gets a bit on the dry side when sitting too long. I think that when business dies down they should make fresh sandwichs for people.
yummy salad bar at the market – the market, on the corner of 13th and chestnut, has a fabulous salad bar. everything on it is gourmet, delicious. it's a bit pricey at $8/lb but it's worth every penny. seriously, they should get an award for making food this delicious so easily accessible -on a salad bar! but, mind you, the staff could use a little help. they're pretty to look at but seem deficient in knowing that communicating is an important part of their job. like "hello", "how are you", "your total is . . . ", "thanks and have a great day" -nope, these are all missing when you plunk down your money for their product. if you can look past that, you're set. but, it's so terribly "philly" to have poor customer service. i do expect more from a place with such yummy food.
Nice place – The food is pretty tasty and the selections are pretty wide. The little market that is at the corner is very nice also, with tons of little goodies! I was not overly impressed by the price at the cafe and the space is a little cold, with very little room to eat. I loved the food- the flatbread was AMAZING! You should check it out!
Sleek and stylish, this fresh fooderie does double time as a cafe and gourmet market. – In Short
In the old days the onetime wig shop reflected the colorful yet creepy vibe of a faded downtown quarter. These days, reconstruction is the order of the day. Enter Grocery: a bright, modern, gourmet shop and cafe where patrons refill bottles of haute olive oil and prepared foods come in the way of gourmet rotisserie chickens. Even bacon-infused brussel sprouts appeal. Chef/owner Marcie Turney owns the popular Lolita around the block with partner Valerie Safran.
