Unless you know it’s there, you could easily drive right past the Jackson Market and Deli as it’s smack in the middle of a residential street in Los Angeles. Although there are a couple of tables with umbrellas in front, the real secret is in the back. Walk through an unobtrusive door and you’re in a secret garden, complete with fountains, couches, and a large gazebo. And all secret gardens should have a pizza oven as well!
The sandwiches are generous and tasty. They make fresh crepes. And, remember the pizza oven!
Be aware, the service isn’t speedy. You fill out a form, turn it in, and wait for your food. You can, however, order online, which should make things go faster. Also, if you want, say, bacon on your turkey sandwich, you get charged for two meats, which considerably doubled the cost of my first sandwich there. On the other hand, that was one AMAZING sandwich.
Jackson Market has a deli and a wide selection of canned/bottled drinks like coffee, tea, and kombucha, in addition to the usual sodas.
It’s a delightful place to wile away a warm afternoon or evening. I think if I lived in that neighborhood, I might stop cooking entirely!
