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.
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.
"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
SIte - Typical deli cafe located in a business plaza/EY building.
Mediterranean sandwich - $5, blissful, basic, and hot. Delicious artichoke hearts, eggplant, swiss cheese, and pesto mayo were smashed neatly between two hot flattened focaccia breads. It was warming and not bloating to the stomach.
A decent little sandwich shop that serves paini/toasted sandwiches and some soups. Its not bad but not stellar either and will run you for about $9 for their meal deals.
They have everything you need in a sandwich shop and also serve breakfast stuff like burritos/breakfast bowls. My friend said that they liked my sandwich better though.
I'm giving this a 1 because I can't give it a 0. This place has good reviews but they must all be fake because we ordered 3 different things to try and they all had a wierd after taste. And tasted bad and gave us a horrible stomach ache. It was expensive, not at all worth the money!
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!
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!
My co-workers and I came here for lunch based on yelp reviews and limited optionsoptions. The grilled chicken sandwich I had was Very good! I'm not a sandwich fan but this one was quite tasty. Service was fast and furious...i meant Courteous.
Will be back again while we are working in San Jose!
This is a great place for lunch and dinner. The food is cheap and very tasty. For 10 dollars You can get a good size sandwich and soup. I got a Rueben and the chilli soup. It tasted great.
Exactly what I wanted! Small, fresh and inexpensive café with good sandwhich and salad options. $6.99 for a turkey wrap, $8.99 if you add chips and drink. Perfect! Will be back to try the breakfast options.
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.
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.
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.
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!!
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.
This Deli used to be owned by the nicest woman. It's since changed ownership and the new owner is not the friendliest. He also messes up orders, forgets what you pay for and is just a little on the ruder side. The staff behind the counter are really great and friendly and always incredibly helpful. However, when it's a busy day the owner stands at the counter watching his staff rather than helping them or taking orders. I think it's safe to say that I will not be returning to this once loved lunch spot of mine.
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!
Nice little cafe around the corner from our new building. They have friendly customer service and their efficient cashier/checkout area is amazing. Unfortunately the sandwich fell short of greatness... I ordered the Avocado BLT and there was barely any avocado and the bacon was pretty close to the pre-cooked bacon they give out at McD's. Based on their accessibility I will keep going and hope that my next sandwich is somewhat better.
Don't expect high-end flavors, but this little cafe does just the trick if you're attending an event at the convention center and just can't take the catered food.
I had the chicken caesar salad, a bag of chips, and an iced coffee, all of which did the trick. The flavors are pretty basic, so there's really not much to write about. They have a decent selection of both hot and cold sandwiches, plus different combination choices. Soup or salad and half a sandwich, soup and salad, chips/sandwich/drink, etc.
The man taking my order was very kind and patient as I had to dig through my purse to find my wallet. He even brought my food to me. There was a good number of people there which made me feel better about my choice.
If anything, come here for the expansive outdoor seating area. There's plenty of tables, a few couch-style seats with tables, and benches. It was a gorgeous day so I took my food outside.
There are certainly other options in the area, many of which are probably better quality and better tasting, but if you're looking for a no-frills just give me food and get outta here, come to Grace Deli!
Wow! I cane here impromptu, and I found a very good place. I ate a salad that was of. Good size and high quality. Very clean too!! Highly recommend it
