Foodstuffs has the very best deli and bakery in Evanston. They, of course, also do catering. I love their homemade dips, particularly their artichoke dip. They also sell gourmet pre-packaged food that is hard to find at your typical grocery store. All of their salads are simply wonderful. They have fresh breads too.

PROS: Food is fresh and tasty
CONS: expensive

Foodstuffs has wonderful pre-made items that I have happily transferred into serving dishes and claimed as my own ;) For a tailgate, a family dinner, or a romantic dinner for two they have something for you. Plus, they let you taste before you buy!

This small market features well made food ready to eat. Go for the sanwhiches and macaroni and cheese. A selection of hard to find drinks and snacks make this a perfect place for picnic fare or a good dining option when you just don't feel like cooking.

PROS: great homemade dishes to go
CONS: selection on the small side

I went to Foodstuffs on a Saturday afternoon and the store was bustling with people from all over the neighborhood. I was first struck with how small the store was, but felt welcomed by the attentive, but never overbearing staff. Throughout the store were wonderful samples of their dips, cakes, cookies, and sauces. You could almost make a meal out of trying everything (the sample tables are unmanned, so you don't feel guilty about going back for seconds). My first purchase was a Teryaki-marinated Chilean Sea Bass. I was dissappointed when I got home, not knowing that the fish was already cooked. However, after heating it up in the oven, my wife and I were surprised by its quality and flavor. So whether you are going for a good dip, an appetizer, pre-cooked foods, or quality meats and sandwiches, Foodstuffs is a sure thing.

Pros: Quality, Variety, Helpful Staff

Cons: , Limited Hours

Although the $9 per pound tuna salad is good, it is $9 per pound. I thought the atmosphere was dated, but they do have a lot of great stuff. The cheeses & pates are interesting.

You can find more interesting & more resonable at Whole Foods, Trader Joes or Sunset.

In Short
The fresh smells and homemade goodies at this fancy deli and caterer are hard to resist. Locals pop in for imported goods from chips and salsa to fancy olive oils and vinegars, or grab a pastry or a gourmet sandwich likeā€¦
