DELI HOT CASE
Choose from a mouthwatering selection of chef-prepared meats (including rotisserie) and sides from our hot case and build the perfect meal to satisfy your hunger. Our award-winning Amish Rotisserie Chicken is a customer favorite. It is 100% natural, vegetarian-fed and naturally raised with no growth promotants or antibiotics ever. Our bird is naturally larger and is the largest in the Twin Cities.
SANDWICH AND SALAD CASE
We offer a great sandwich selection with fresh-made-daily artisan sandwiches, paninis, wraps, croissants and subs. Our Deli Case features products from many small, local vendors, including Gramps & Sammy’s Pesto, Deena's Gourmet Hummus and more.
Our seasonally rotated salads are made fresh daily at our state-of-the-art, USDA-regulated Production Kitchen. All kitchen staff is Food Service Manager licensed. We use local vendors whenever possible to supply the ingredients for our recipes, including 80% local produce in the summertime. We also do our best to use “clean” ingredients wherever possible, with no artificial ingredients or preservatives. We pride ourselves on our broad selection of healthy salads which meet our Good Foods for Good Health criteria, as well as Gluten Free choices.
HOT SOUP BAR
Kowalski’s Signature Soups are made by a local company that hand-makes our favorite recipes. Each soup has a sign that contains the ingredient and nutrition facts to help with customer questions.
DELI MEATS AND CHEESE
Kowalski’s All Natural Oven Browned Deli Meats are free of antibiotics, contain no MSG or gluten, and are 99% fat free. Boar’s Head brand premium meats and cheeses are proudly featured in our markets. For over 100 years, Boar’s Head has been making the finest, purest, freshest and most highly regarded deli products. All products have no fillers, no by-products, no artificial colors or flavors, and no trans fat. Boar’s Head only uses the finest ingredients in their products.
We have a unique array of specialty olives on our Olive Bar. We partner with purveyors that source the olives from the Mediterranean, where the climate and soil conditions produce superior varieties. They buy direct from the same small family farms each year and compensate the growers for the extra measures they take in hand-picking and storing the olives to produce an exceptional product. Our supplier does his own sorting, curing and packing, shipping the olives in brine rather than simply tossing them in oil. This allows them to continue to cure, prevents decay and keeps them from drying out and wrinkling.
SHELF-STABLE PRODUCTS AND ACCOMPANIMENTS
We make our Kowalski's Tortilla Chips and Seasoned Potato Chips fresh daily. Our trusted vendors also provide us with Republic of Tea; gourmet condiments from Boar's Head, Stonewall Kitchen and Rothschild; pita chips and flatbreads; artisan crackers; cheese spreads; salami and sausages; hummus; gourmet snacks from Funky Chunky; specialty local chocolates by B.T. McElrath.
Chef-prepared holiday meals are available for all of the major holidays and are ready to heat and eat.
We also feature our own Signature Products line. These are items we have tested ourselves, and we are proud to put our name on them.
