This is a good place to look for gourmet or hard to find items. It's too expensive for regular shopping trips. The cafe and bakery isn't bad; good to go to on a weekday morning.

Fantastic grocery store, with restaurant. Quite expensive but lots of fine foods and unusual goods that you don't find in your "regular" grocery store. Great International selection. Beautiful flower shop. Easy parking in downtown location.

We often go to Dreager's because, as a retired M.D. who is just learning to cook, I am able to find EVERYTHING I need for international recipes. Their produce is excellent, but over-priced. They even have an excellent selection of living, and cut, flowers. I...More

I shop there almost every day since it is walking distance from my house. The butcher is friendly, helpful and most importantly, knowledgeable. The fresh fruits and vegetables are beautiful and very fresh. Their prices are high and if that is important to you, you...More

I have been shopping at Draeger's for years and years now, and its strengths rest in providing the best and most amazing decorations, food, and linens for a party. I do not throw a party all that often, but as I am in the neighborhood,...More
