Amazing artisanal bread, the best international ingredients, creative combos and passionate staff. While you wait for the panini press, you can shop browse and buy things like specialty anchovies, organic peanut butter with honey and delicious bevs you don't see just anywhere. Still glowing! NOM.

Dave's is an awesome, cosy neighborhood market with 5 star take out. Opt to eat your gargantuan grilled-to-order panini inside at the few window tables (squeezed among their extensive array of foreign foods and wines) or sit outdoors during good weather. With fabulous cheeses, gourmet...More
