“Wasabi Mustard”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

I was in Richmond for a graduation at VCU and our niece wanted to eat here. The menu has such a variety of items to choose from. Great sandwiches, many foreign and craft beers, and salad options.
All of the sandwiches are made with fresh bread and fresh meats and cheeses. Very friendly staff and orders were quick for a party of 7. Would love to go back and try some of the other items on the menu. The turkey pepper sandwich was fantastic, and the wasabi mustard was the special ingredient for me.

“Walked by ”
Reviewed 7 December 2013 via mobile

Walking by we smelled this amazing deli. As far as sandwiches go i thought it was pricey at first, until I tried it. The crab salad sandwich had just enough filler to hold things together. The small draft selection consisted of seasonal local craft brews. It could be improved on by adding fresh brewed sweet tea.

“Arc de triumph!”
Reviewed 20 July 2013

I usually come here at least once a week to get my favorite sandwich, the Arc de triumph. It consists of house roasted turkey, French brie, applewood smoked bacon on French baguette with garlic aioli spread. It is amazing... they also have a ton of other delicious options but this is my favorite. Also, it's a good place to get some craft beers or Dr. Brown sodas!

“Variety and plenty of space for large groups.”
Reviewed 14 January 2013

I stopped in at the Main St. location with about five of my friends on a Monday afternoon. They has a deli case with many different salads, a menu with several sandwiches, and a soup of the day. There is also an extensive beer and wine selection, as well as artisan juices and soft drinks. Ordering is done at the counter, you pay right away, then you seat yourself. The food is delivered to your table. The ordering and paying process, the variety of menu options, and the abundance of space makes this a great place for larger groups.

It's a european-style deli, so interpret that as you will. The food was light and fresh. I got 1/2 a cucumber sandwich with hummus and a cup of soup, and probably paid too much for it, but I suppose one pays also for the experience and atmosphere, and the place sure is accommodating and convenient.
