This market is excellent for sandwiches and prepared food in their deli section. They have a good selection of locally sourced produce and their wines and cheeses cannot be beat!

Note: It's easy to get confused between Delfina and Pizzeria Delphina which is right next door. Delphina is a high end restaurant. If you are here on an expense account, make a reservation and go here - otherwise go to their very reasonably priced Pizzeria right next door to this.

Very popular for their bread and pastries. If you want to avoid the line, go there right before they open at 7:30 a.m. If you get there about 4:15 p.m. in the afternoon, they start selling the bread made fresh that day at 4:30 pm. In any case, the line moves fairly fast (good stuff, but we hate to stand in their line).

It's the Ice cream place around the corner from us that always has lines when the weather is good (and even when it's bad). To avoid the line for made to order cones, go to the soft serve window (they also sell cake, pie and cookies there), or you can bypass the line if you want to buy pints or ice cream sandwiches from their freezer...just walk in to the right of the line.

Perfect date night option! This gorgeously remodeled old movie palace is fun and we go here at least once a month. Get the iphone app., choose your movie (5 screens), choose your seats and pay online. You want to get there about 30 minutes before the show, or earlier if you'd like stop into their beautiful bar for a cocktail first. You go early to watch the pre-show videos and vintage clips and to order your dinner and drinks before the show starts...you are served at your seats! $15 pizza's are awesome, beers at $4 are the best deal and they have kimchi flavored popcorn. Highly recommended!
