For months the sign for Annie’s Vintage Gourmet marked its unopened location along Indiantown Road. Finally, in September, the prepared foods market made its debut to enthusiastic - and expectant - customers. It seems the wait was worth it.
Lots of details attended to at Annie’s from the easy-to-walk-around design and quaint décor to the choice of foods available. Besides a deli counter (with perfectly rare roast beef on display), there’s an expansive choice of prepared poultry, beef and fish dishes, salads, pizza, subs and sandwiches and on and on. There’s also a wide choice of eats for calorie watchers such as zucchini roll ups, fruit plates, and yogurt dishes. Most of the business is takeout but a few tables are available for morning coffee and sweets (they’re delicious) or for a light, inexpensive lunch.
Prices are competitive. A turkey wrap, big enough to share, comes with a bag of chips and a small side of macaroni or potato salad for $5.95, beating out Publix’s sandwiches that sell for the same price without the chips or side. Takeout dinners for two average $15 – a bargain. It’s nearly impossible to prepare a gourmet meal for two for that price at home. And, they’re offering a takeout Thanksgiving dinner for about $60 that serves two to four. Holiday meals for larger groups are also available.
Annie’s also offers an array of boxed pastas, olive oils, cheeses and other grocery items as well as a small collection of wines. If something you're looking for isn't here, Annie would probably get it for you. “We don’t want to turn anyone away,” she said. They also provide catering services and free local delivery.
