Downtown Santa Cruz

Our Downtown Santa Cruz store opened in 1996 in the historic Bank of America building. It’s the perfect spot to grab a nutritious + delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner, some home cooking staples or a yummy snack to brighten your day.


We are adjusting our meat & seafood assortment at this store to best serve customer demand and eliminate food waste. We will no longer be offering housemade burger patties and sausage, fresh ground beef and seafood, and a few other items. If you are looking for something specific, visit our full service meat and seafood counters at our Aptos, Capitola, or Westside Santa Cruz stores.
