All locals will tell you that Creekside is a classic favorite for sandwiches and sloshies. Touches like the bread, baked fresh in house, and freshly squeezed juices in the drinks make all the difference. But the real secret is how much more Creekside offers. In addition to a full deli counter and grocery, liquor store and supplies, Creekside offers a selection of homemade items for breakfast, lunch and takeout. Think homemade meatballs for sub sandwiches, breakfast croissant sandwiches and even a selection of fresh doughnuts. Fans flock to the deli on Fridays, where the enormous fish sandwich is a huge hit, and there are also lunch specials every day of the week. Early risers headed for an adventure love the early morning hours, making it convenient to grab an egg sandwich or satisfying breakfast burrito. Fans of a classic sandwich will be thrilled with the size, value and extensive options of ingredients.
