It's a safe option in the area, they make solid sandwiches, their salads are comprised of vegetables. The dressing is boring and nothing really stands out but if you're here and want a place that has a menu that won't offend anyone this place will do.
"I think I'm just gonna go downstairs for lunch."
Since I work upstairs, the convenience factor is a plus, since the food does get prepped rather quickly. However...
Come here if you want overpriced sandwiches at $6+ that look like something you could make in the kitchen if you had the cooking expertise of Wikipedia. Soups here have salt as the main ingredient. Their salads don't offend in any way.
In a dystopian post-capitalism world, this would be the final beacon of American food.
Until then, hard pass.
Decent to Strong 2
I love this place right across the convention center. With a really nice outdoor seating. Prices are quite reasonable I got a no-carb breakfast burrito bowl and a fruit cup for under 10 bucks.
Service is always fast for breakfast.
I've worked across the street from Grace Deli & Cafe for over two years now and I FINALLY tried this place out recently. Better late than never!
My coworker went on a one-month streak consuming the same sandwich from here every day for lunch. I wanted to see what all the hype was about and oh my god, they make a life changing veggie sandwich. Veggie Patch on marbled rye, you're welcome. I know what you're thinking, how can a veggie sandwich be so good? I don't know either. It just is.
It's a small place inside the EY building with tables for dining in, but also perfect for a quick meal to take back to the office. I've witnessed a lot of colleagues eating soups, salads, sandwiches, wraps, breakfast burritos etc. from here with no complaints.
If I'm ever craving carbs in the form of bread, then it must be a Veggie Patch!
Great place with an awesome breakfast burrito and good coffee. Right across the street from the Hilton downtown which makes it an easy choice if the weather is bad and you don't want to eat at the lackluster hotel restaurant.
To be clear I don't give 5 stars lightly. I was at a conference in the area for 3 days and I ate lunch here everyday. Day 1: "Classic Turkey" simple but executed very well great Great ingredients and great bread. Day 2: "Grilled Chicken Pepperoni" I think this was my favorite. I was surprised to find think cut chicken breast rather than deli cut. The flavors were great I love banana peppers especially with pepperoni. Day 3: "chicken Caesar wrap" probably my least favorite of the 3 but still really good. It is exactly what it says it is and very fresh. If I had one criticism it would be that the ingredients in the wrap could have been more evenly distributed. The first half I ate had virtually no chicken, but man that second half was like a chicken Caesar burrito tm. Now if you'll excuse me I have a burrito idea to trademark ;)
Fantastic! Had a business meeting and arrived a half-hour early. Just enough time to find a place for a quick bite. The lobby security guard recommended this place. We walked in and quickly ordered. Service was fast and efficient. They advertise that their food is fresh so I took a chance and tried a tuna sandwich. OMG! It was thick and it was tasty! My friend loved his breakfast burrito as well. I will return!
Grace Deli is awesome!
The owners are very courteous, friendly and polite.
The Asian chicken salad is very very good and I substitute the chicken with tuna as they are always happy to make the change.
The catering for over 10ppl has been very well accepted in our building and I use them to host some of our smaller events.
Keep up the good work!!
I ordered a ham and spinach breakfast burrito and a medium coffee for $6. The burrito was scrambled egg, a slice of ham and some spinach. Nothing special, but it was good nonetheless. I felt it was a bit overpriced, but the service was good and the restaurant itself was very nice.
Just plain yummy! Its a cute little deli across the street from the Hilton. Paninis are just sooo good. The crowd starts @ 11:30 for lunch but the service is friendly and quick. Worth a try if you're in the area =)
I was so grateful to find Grace. I was staying at the Hilton across the street for a work event that did not provide lunch or enough time to go far. Grace was right across the street, extremely fast service, and reasonably tasty food. The sandwiches and cookies are where it's at. My coworkers and I came back the next day and easily labeled it the best option in the area.
Food was good n the place was nice n clean. Very busy right at noon time. Say ur order n hav them repeat it coz the guy gav me the wrong soup but changed it when I said so. The bathroom close by is nice n clean. I like how there is water to help yourself to.
Went there with my friend because of his recommendation. Had a grilled chicken sandwich which was bomb. Cheap and tasty 10/10 would go there again.
very nice place to have lunch, I have been going there for lunch for a long time and no change on taste or service so far, always nice and tasty. For a full meal, try the combos, the tomato and pepper soup is a little bit sweet, if you are not on to it, just ask one of the other 2 options.
Grilled Chicken Sandwich w/o bacon is delicious, try non-sauced to get real feast. Great service; fast, friendly & clean!
Great little eatery near the convention center (close enough to walk). Even though they were slammed with the convention center lunch crowd, the fresh food arrived promptly. I enjoyed my salad, and my colleagues enjoyed their wraps and sandwiches. Their promptness was definitely impressive, considering the amount of people there. The food was great, and the service was great!
We were in San Jose for the weekend and wanted quick breakfast on the last day of our stay. We stayed across the street at the Hilton. This is a cute little cafe with a few seating inside. It was quiet and relaxing.
I had a burrito breakfast bowl and my fiance had a breakfast burrito. I also ordered some fruit, hot ea, and he had coffee. The food was ok. It didn't wow me at all. The fruit was cutely cut and decorated in a transparent cup. You were given hot water in a cup and you had to choose which flavor tea bag.
The person behind the counter was extremely friendly and helpful. The place had really good reviews. I wasn't expecting more. I was a tad bit disappointed the food we had was just ok.
I came by because it was close to school and I wanted a chai latte, pleasant atmosphere, good Cesar wrap and chai latte. I would come again.
Stopped by for breakfast while I was in town for a conference. This place was awesome! Bright, cheerful, and a huge selection of both vegetarian and meat options. Very friendly staff, and super quick service. Oh, and the best breakfast burrito I've had in a very long time. I'll be back tomorrow!
I stopped by here somewhat early on this past Friday morning with my coworker for breakfast. We were looking for somewhere with a hot breakfast and Grace Deli happened to be right across the street from where we're staying. It's a smallish shop on W San Carlos Street right across the street from the Hilton and convention center. The inside of Grace has a place to order you food, some coolers and plenty of seating. The walls are covered in some old school looking posters and mirrors.
For breakfast on this day I decided to go with the super burrito. The menu said it consisted of All-natural scrambled eggs, mild cheddar cheese melted, ham, bacon, avocado, potato and it also came with a side of salsa. Whenever it came to the table I noticed it was a somewhat small burrito but whenever I picked it was heavy which was I found to be a good thing. The burrito itself ended up being quite tasty and I loved how crispy the bacon was and that the avocado provided a nice texture contrast in addition to its flavor. Actually everything about it was pretty good and the salsa on the side even provided some needed acidity to the dish. Whenever I had finished my burrito I was full and satisfied. The best part about it? You can get the super burrito for $4.99. My coworker and I were actually debating how they could even make money selling it for that price.
The bottom line for me is that I would head back here again in the future. Grace Deli is a great place where not only do you get good food but a good bang for your buck too.
I was staying in a hotel a few blocks away and found this on Yelp. The reviews were good so I took a chance. It was amazing!! I had the Super Burrito bowl and side of watermelon for under $10. The owner was very pleasant. I would definitely recommend this deli if you're in the area.
