South Bay Market seamlessly blends freshly made sandwiches, salads, and prepared foods with the ambiance and ingredients of an upscale eatery. The counter houses prepared entrees such as pasta salads, Dr Pepper–coated ribs, and panko-crusted chicken cutlets. Behind the counter, a chef prepares custom salads by peppering greens with walnuts, mushrooms, avocado, or bacon and nestles turkey, roast beef, and grilled eggplant into sandwiches or wraps. While their food is being prepared, customers can browse a selection of drinks including juice or soda and snacks such as premier pretzels, north fork chips, or Tate's chocolate chip cookies before heading over to café tables to eat and play travel Twister.
Bageltown Cafe, opened in February 2013, serves up coffee, tea, and classic deli cuisine. Patrons can order bagels smeared with scallion- or strawberry-infused cream cheeses, or opt for bialys and made-from-scratch baked sweets that are baked fresh each day. Cooks also grill panini sandwiches, prepare whitefish and lox salads, and sell Boar's Head meats and cheeses by the pound.
With years of experience behind them, the chefs at Mizuno Japanese Cuisine craft traditional dishes with signature accents.

On the warmer side of the menu, diners will find noodle bowls, tempura plates, and vegetable teriyaki.
Meats, cheeses, fruits, and veggies line the counters and display cases at DaVinci Gourmet Market, where chefs draw upon a palette of fresh ingredients to compose take-home entrees and catered meals each day. To-go containers nearly overflow with wild-rice salad or crab cakes, and entrees of grilled salmon or roasted chicken make for ephemeral table centerpieces. The sun rises over omelets and traditional two-egg breakfasts, and the lunch menu’s specialty paninis invoke the Leaning Tower of Pisa with their stacked toppings and unstable groundwork of toasted ciabatta bread.
