The Savory Gourmet Deli & Cafe serves foods made with organic eggs, chicken & turkey, grass-fed pasture-raised beef and lamb, and wild-caught sushi-grade seafood. Most of the deli meats, flours, and cheeses are imported from Italy with much of it being organic or DOP certified, without coatings, sprays, or injections. Everything is non-GMO and aside from the bread and bagels, most of the dishes are made from scratch. Even the roast beef, ham, and turkey breasts are made in house with the use of very low sodium. Vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options are offered while 98% of the take-home meals are gluten-free. However, fresh bakery foods are not made with organic ingredients.
The cafe menu offers breakfast all day, hot & cold sandwiches, pizza, soups, salads, and small bites such as an olive sampler and a charcuterie board. The deli offers an amazing selection of deli meats, as well as grass-fed meats such as lamb, large sheet pans of house lasagna, and Italian specialties such as rice balls and veal cutlets. The Grab & Go section is packed with freshly made take-home dinners such as Short Rib Manicotti, Chicken Scallopini, and Chicken Piccata to name a few. You’ll also find fresh bakery foods such as cookies, brownies, and cake.
What I Ordered
I ordered a Breakfast Sandwich with sausage, egg, and cheese on an everything bagel. Melted grass-fed provolone and cheddar draped over light and fluffy organic scrambled eggs, atop tender sausage that was not drowned in sodium…all on a warm soft bagel made for a sammy that was simply superb. I also chose an Italian Wedding Soup from the grab & go and a Rice Ball from the deli. Again, the freshly made soup was outstanding as was the rice ball, stuffed with beef, peas, and rice, which is a made from a 200 year old family recipe.
With smells of an Italian grandmother’s kitchen, friendly chatter, and a local neighborhood feel, The Savory Gourmet Cafe & Deli is a bustling place with dining tables available inside as well as outdoors on the front sidewalk. With a comfortable urban chic decor, a dash of NY, and great looking food in every nook and cranny, one could spend a good while just studying all the amazing food selections.
The Savory Gourmet Deli & Cafe is a combination deli/restaurant/market offering exceptional scratch-made chef-prepared meals-to-go. The cafe menu is chock full of made-to-order breakfast and lunch sandwiches, amazing soups, pizza and so much more. The clean meat selection is exceptional, and one can order in peace, knowing GMO’s are just not welcomed here. The food is top-notch, as are the ingredients and recipes. The selection of unique and hard to find specialty foods is like no other in the area. Be sure to stop by when in the N Atlanta area and tell Chef Adam that the Clean Foodie sent you.
