“Only place for candied fruit!”
Review of Draeger's

Draeger's
Ranked #1 of 10 Bakeries in San Mateo
Cuisines: Deli
Restaurant details
Reviewed 15 July 2017

Draeger's is a great store...nice staff, quality products, and an excellent gift shop upstairs. One holiday season I was looking everywhere for what I guess is an old-fashioned type of baking ingredient - candied fruit. My daughter and I wanted to bake some panettone and other treats that required candied fruit. Lunardi's carried one flavor, I believe it was citron, while Draeger's had every kind you could wish for. I don't do my major shopping here, but I do appreciate having it in our town for special items and gifts.

And then some. All very best quality everything, lavish pastries and full cheese and deli sections. Their wine selections both in depth and quality put most if not almost all wine shops as pretenders. They have multi thousand dollar French and Italian wines behind locked glass which is about as close as most people will get to them. And the prices match - but everything there is top drawer.

The employees are nice, and have been here forever. Too many of the customers are Nouveau Rude. Shop during the week to avoid as many as you can of them.

Roberts of Woodside is simply better, especially if you're buying a pre-prepared holiday meal.

While you're here, pick up some McConnell's ice cream. The Mint Chip and Chocolate Coated Strawberry are especially good.

I always stop in here when I'm having a dinner party and need those special ingredients or touches for my table. Their bakery and desserts are always a party-pleaser. The butcher is friendly and open to making recommendations. You can find good pre-made foods too. The soups are wonderful if you need a quick lunch. Wonderful selection of chesses and other imported and gourmet faire. The wine selection is awesome. Many of the wines they have in the store are also served upstairs at Viognier

This is the first time I have reviewed a grocery store, but that is because this is really so much more. It is a foodie paradise. They have a terrific bakery, wonderful cheese selections, an outstanding wine selection.....you get the idea. It is a grocery store for gourmands, priced as such, but they deliver the real thing.
