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

Dave's is always hopping with customers dropping in for the best sandwiches around, gourmet cheeses, pastas and sauces and a reasonably priced selection of wines! The other night I stopped by and got their sherry roasted chicken entre to go and a delicious bottle of...More

While I love both Dave's incredible sandwiches and delicious pasta, one must try their winetasting evenings. Not only is a selection of wine delicious and affordable, the food which accompanies each wine is so well-prepared and really compliments the wine. Dave's is a local treasure...More

Dave's can be crazy busy at lunchtime, but once you've had a sandwich there, you'll agree that it's worth it. Pick up your grilled shrimp, eggplant parm or sauce for your fresh pasta/fresh-made ravioli. Add some wine, cheese and olives while you wait for the...More

Delicious sandwich lunch. Had the artichoke arugula sandwich and sicilian. The bread was incredible, especially the focaccia! Got our food to-go and sat outside, also a specialty shop with great selection. Everything was fresh.

Come here often for take out. Best item is the large caesar salad which has the perfect amount of parmesan cheese, homemade croutons and their excellent caesar dressing. They never disappoint for great takeout
