always crowded, parking is hard during rush hours. but compared to the lucky's or safeway's of the world, andronico's is still heads and shoulders above the rest.

The sandwiches used to be 6.50 at the deli, now they are 7.00. What a rip off. The whole store is one giant rip off. If you want to pay more for groceries, I would recommend Berkeley Bowl!

Holiday gourmet treats. Shop early for the best selections... the best varieties of Tea, including Peet's.
hard to find "double cream" and some imported butter like "Plugra".
My personal favorite and the best anywhere, you have to try the "Buffalo Wings" from the Deli Hot case!!!
They even take American Express!

Pros: outstanding variety

Cons: pricey, but worth it

I still wouldn't shop there. Anyone operating on a budget should know better than to even poke around at Andronico's. Maybe once every 3 or 4 blue moons they have something on supersale, but your best bet is a place like Safeway/PakNSave.

If you into great bargains try Trader Joes- but if you want quality foods, and a very nice supermarket shopping experience try Andronicos. I love the bakery sections- you can get an awesome muffin and coffee for about 2.50. the cheese selection is great as well

The University Ave. Andronicos Market is a nice little market, and it has an interesting history. It also used to be the Coop Grocery store, back in the 70's. At some point in time the economics of cooperative prosperity collapsed, and Andronicos moved in. Actually those of us in the neighborhood were grateful in a way, because the lines in the store went away. This might have something to due with advances in cash register bar-code technology which the coop never quite grasped.

Still, its a working, functioning neighborhood market. The "Wild Oats" market across the street has come and gone since then. Still Andronicos lives on.

The food is good quality, and the store is small enough that you can shop for one meal and get in and out in half an hour. It is not Safeway, or the Berkeley Bowl. (thank goodnes).

The meat market and fish market are above average, and they have a great deli. In terms of selection, they have an amazing number of cheeses, vegetables, wines and beers.

The only real downfall is they are above average in expense. If you are thinking of doing your once a month grocery shopping, you might want to consider going to Pay-And-Pack in Emeryville-- and save about 20% off the top.

IF you have less than an hour to shop and are entertaining guests, this is the place. Oh yeah, they have parking (limited) off of Addison St in the back. (stop by the Unicef store outside the back entrance to buy yourself a UN Flag! ) Did I mention the friendly checkers?

PROS: Quality Vegetables, Deli, Meat Market, Fish Market
CONS: Expensive
