2803 Rosewood Drive (across from Publix's)
Columbia, SC 29205
Both a vegetarian deli with tables inside and outside on the patio and the best vegetarian grocery store and market around. For over 25 years, this has been a consistently high quality and locally owned and operated vegetarian grocery store and deli. The market sells all the makings for vegetarian, vegan and macrobiotic dishes. The deli serves macrobiotic and vegetarian meals to eat in or take out. Tofu was never so good as it is here. For many people, this is the only place at which they eat out. Excellent for those on special diets.
Basil Garzia, through years of conscientious and hard work -- and listening to his customers, has built an excellent reputation here for having the best ingredients, including nearly any spice or grain you can think of and organic produce. Good selection of vegetarian and earth-friendly books and magazines as well as a full selection of herbs and vitamins. Open 9 AM until 9 PM, Monday through Saturday. Open Sunday 10 AM to 6 PM. Saturday and Sunday breakfast. Plenty of parking in the Rosewood Baptist Church parking lot next door when the store's main lot is full -- as it often is.
Located across from Publix grocery store. Call 256-6410 to order a meal for pickup. The deli closes at 7:30, and you may be disappointed if you get there at 7:25. Choices may not be available and the clean-up crew may have already pulled the food off the steam table. If you can't get there until 7:30, call by 7:00 at least and order your meals to go.
