We’ve come a long way since 1972, when the Co-op was just a hatchling in someone’s garage. Yes, we’ve still got concrete floors. But forty years on, we’ve got a delicious Deli that’s consistently voted the Best Vegetarian eatery in Yolo County, with the added benefit of house-roasted chickens, fresh-rolled sushi, hand-sliced meats from local ranches, and an Executive Chef who'll make your catering dreams come true! We're also the happy-hour location that’s the best-kept secret in Davis. We’re speaking of the patio, of course. Serving until 9 pm, with a mammoth selection of “bar snacks” just a stroll away.
The Deli's Coffee Bar is ready at 7am, with cold-brew, fair-trade, and a variety of organic milks and sweeteners to make your morning go. Try our “spicy” mocha or hot cocoa when it’s co-old outside, and grab a breakfast burrito from our hot bar, featuring Vega eggs or Sacramento Tofu Company’s soy wonder.
The DFC Deli squeezes its own organic orange juice, crafts its own incredible beet-and-kale salad, conjures its famously addictive tofu spread, and crams as many organic ingredients as possible into everything.* From our fresh-baked croissant rolls to our stunning dessert case, we use the best stuff we can get our hands on. That means Spectrum Shortening in our pies, which translates to no trans fats. That also means local meats from Niman Ranch, 5 Dot, Diestel, and Petaluma Chicken, which translates to nom nom nom. We exclusively use the tofu from our friends at Sacramento Tofu Company in all of our Hot Bar items—Sacramento Tofu Co. also delivers their tasty-when-plain tofu to our Bulk Department so you can take home exactly the quarter-cup of soy that you need. *You asked so nicely for so many years. So yes! The DFC Deli puts organic first.
Whether you’re picking up a quick meal to take away, collecting scrumptious & healthy just-made DFC Deli salads for your week, or stocking up on sliced meats and cheeses, the DFC Deli is sure to impress. And yes, we also do catering platters! Veggie crudite with vegan dip for a graduation party? No problem. Ask any Deli staffer for help.
