“Convenient for a quick snack or basic grocery items.”
Reviewed 22 February 2013 via mobile

Basic snack items, mini deli and some take out items, additional grocery and misc downstairs. A few sit down tables. Nothing fancy, a little pricey, but very convenient when at Avila Beach.

“Meh”
Reviewed 20 February 2013

Not a great selection of groceries or deli items. Take out food looked good. Convenient location across from the beach.

“Off season gem”
Reviewed 5 February 2013

Our group of 4 ate at the little deli in the back of the business and it was amazing. This is the quiet winter season with few tourists so we almost had the deli to ourselves. The 2 ladies working were very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent. Two of us got the special for the night which was beef stroganoff. There was so much, it left enough for lunch today. In the summer, this place is very busy with tourists and much of the charm is lost but this is not the case in the winter. We eat here often and suggest you try it. Avila Deli is reasonably priced especially compared to other local places to eat. Many of the "locals" eat here.

“A Gem”
Reviewed 23 January 2013

Whether you're a local, or just visiting, Avila Grocery and Deli is a definately a gem. The ocean-front location is handy for beach-goers, or hotel visitors who forgot a needed item, or want to buy a souvinier. There's a great selection of food offered in the deli - from sandwiches and salads to fish dinners, and we haven't been disappointed with any of our selections.

“A little heavy on the carbs, but wondrfully friendly.”
Reviewed 3 January 2013

This family owned place is fun... especially the sign at the front saying that unattended children will be given an expresso and puppy!
