Madison’s best grocery store hands down. Stop for Lunch, browse for a wine and get nice steak/sea food to grill later. All plus plus until you check out. There are less expensive places to but none better. More...

I am really impressed with this I went there for the 1st time over the weekend and was really happily surprised at how wonderful the staff was. We went there to sell girl scout cookies. They let the girls stay inside and warm with a table and they were wonderful tonight. After that we went grocery shopping and I was surprised how much selection of everything there was in the store and how clean it was . We certainly will go back More...

Today they had many local vendors sampling and selling there products. This is a huge plus that they promote local buisneses. Thank you Metcalfe's.

I go to METCALF'S for their meats, and Especially their Produce is gorgeous like an artist has painted it. I do not shop their for can goods, or frozen foods, because, I feel they are outrageous in prices☹ Let me be Clear! I don't mind paying their prices for their MEATS, and PRODUCE departments. I have wasted money over the years on produce that didn't last a day from other grocery stores. So it is worth the price A very clean and neat store . More...

I thought I was lucky . When I left it was drizzling but at end of shopping, the rain was torrential like. The manager and workers were so helpful. I like how they brought me to a product on request.   when I asked at the service desk, I was inform of the Hugh floods near the beltline. It was not such an issue by the store then.   When leaving, the rain was so heavy, like a waterfall. Thankfully the clerks were standing by the door, ready to walk with me to the car., holding an umbrella. They got so wet just loading the groceries in the car. Now that's service ! More...

We spend only about 4 months a year in Madison, but am I ever glad to have found Metcalfe's.  I ride my bike almost daily to the Mineral Point store and I am never ever disappointed.  The staff is simply superior; today my husband and I got to try 3 different breads to find the right one, and the attendant behind the meat counter packed my brats and clam strips in ice so they wouldn't get spoiled on the 8 minute bike ride back to our condo.  Yes, I love this store!  I'm a bargain shopper, but Metcalfe's has so many weekly and monthly specials that the prices are VERY competitive if you shop smart. I have now bought a whole tenderloin twice; $7.99/lb sounds like a price from the 80s!!!  My daughter and son in law couldn't believe how delicious it was; I think that I have finally lured them away from shopping at Costco so much.  The quality of Metcalfe's offerings, whether seafood, meat, produce baked goods, sushi... is so consistently excellent that there will never be another store for me.  Well, except for the Jarlsberg cheese at Trader Joe's.  It's only $6.99/lb v $12.99/lb at Metcalfe's.  So, I bike there occasionally, but I sure miss the classical music every time.

In an age of FedEx'ed groceries in a box, Metcalf's is here to remind us that grocery shopping offers inspiration to make something and new ingredients. I prefer this location over the Hilldale one only because the people here seem exceptionally happy to be working there and they're proactive in asking if customers need help finding something. Came across the Spotted Cow beer brats in the butcher section by accident and it changed my life. You'll never buy a 6-pack of pre-cooked, packaged brats again. Produce is always fresh and never goes bad prematurely like produce from Whole Foods or Costco often do. Liquor section is a little small but forgivable. More...

This is probably one of the nicest markets I have gone to! Its so clean and nicely setup. The interior does remind me of the Whole Foods market and I absolutely fell in love with this market.Comparing this market to Safeway, I will definitely choose this store anyday! Safeway is pretty known for expensive groceries. Yes, it is clean and near but after visiting Metcalfe's, I have to say this market deserves more recognition from me.I loved their produce section! Their produce is so fresh and priced just right. They do have a small organic section just like any other markets nowadays. Their meat department is super clean and the guys working there seemed very kind as well.They have a lot to offer and have many departments to look over. I can see myself coming here everyday if I lived here in Madison, even if I had nothing to purchase just because I love going to grocery stores just to browse around.Plenty of parking available and cashiers are friendly!

The 2 great spots to eat in or grab to go is located at the coffee cafe and the salad and soup bar. Having worked at lululemon for 3 and a half years, I would go here often to get my meals. They have a pretty fresh salad selection to choose from and their soups have never let me down! The people are the coffee bar are very nice as well and they have a punch card system where on Sundays, you get doubles punches! So make sure to go there on Sundays to get extra punches on your card. In the summertime, their mocha frappuccino is excellent!! It has just the right amount of sweetness. More...

I have only been here once so far and that was because a little birdie told me they have sushi for $4.99 on Wednesdays.  For that price, it was worth a shot!Let's just say I now regret knowing this tidbit of information because now I will have to adjust my weekly budget since I live so close.  I thought the sushi was very good for "supermarket sushi" and well worth my $5.  I would even pay the full price for it.  Many of the rolls come with 10 pieces.  I found the Tokyo Fantasy roll to be my favorite.Just beware that the $4.99 sushi is only the ones that have the big red sticker with "Sushi Wednesday" on it (this was unclear to me the first time around), though this doesn't necessarily mean the options are super limited.  There seemed to be something for everyone that fell under the Sushi Wednesday special.I also have to say that the gentlemen at the sushi counter were very friendly and welcoming.I shall return for more sushi in the future!!!!

Normally I don't think about reviewing grocery stores, but I feel like the meat market at this Metcalfe's deserves a shout out!Shopped there for the first time yesterday (I'm new to the area);  I was looking for rib-eye steaks to grill for friends.  Not only were they on sale, but the butchers took the time to explain the differences in the various cuts on display (choice to prime to Wisconsin grass-fed).  And when I couldn't find the exact oz. size I wanted per steak (Yes, I was being awfully picky!), the butcher offered to hand cut steaks to my exact specifications!  He even brought out the side of beef so that I could choose from the less to more marbled end (I chose the more marbled side).The steaks were absolutely delicious, they cooked beautifully.  My guests said they were "Ruth's Chris" quality!  I couldn't be more appreciative for such personalized service.

It's nice a neat here. Just currently under construction near the registers so that kind of sucks. Looks like they are redoing their self-checkout area.

They have a nice deli and produce area as well. Also, I really like their floral section!! More...

Definitely a "higher end" grocery store, and its prices reflect that. Everything is of high quality and they have a great meat and deli department, as well as very fresh produce. However, for just the general groceries, I'll usually end up at Woodman's down the road, where you can get the same products for often up to 25% less.Bonus tip: Their hot deli makes some great food-to-go, buffet style. They run weekly specials where each little section (Chinese, Sushi, Fish Fry, etc) will be less on a certain day of the week. More...

I really love Metcalfe's produce, fresh seafood and ready-to-eat meals.While I love Willy St. Co-op, the selection of fresh seafood there is scarce, in my opinion. The bigger chain grocery stores around Madison are not better when it comes to fresh seafood. Metcalfe's fish counter is wonderful -- all the fish I've tried has been great quality, reasonably priced (considering that it's fresh/wild-caught) and tasty!Other than the fish counter, here are my opinions of the rest of the store:- Great deli selection and ready-to-eat meals: I've had the creamy coleslaw and some other salads from the deli counter, and they've all been great. (I like to LOOK AT the ready-to-eat desserts available at Metcalfe's, but I've done a good job avoiding the temptation to buy them, so I can't comment.)- Good and reasonably priced salad bar: I filled up a whole salad container that totaled $5 at the register. ($2.50/person = nice!) The items on the salad bar are fresh.- The aisles are okay: I actually feel that the organic/natural aisles at Woodman's provide better selection than the aisles at Metcalfe's. - The classical music over the speakers is lovely!I definitely recommend Metcalfe's to anyone looking for a great selection of produce, fresh seafood and deli/ready-to-eat foods!

I have an obsession with this particular location's triple chocolate brownies. Dense and fudgy, studded with chocolate chunks and topped with ganache, this is one of my favorites. It doesn't really remind me of a brownie so much as a slab of chocolate. Metcalfe's other location sells an item with the same name, but in the couple of times I've bought it it's been an entirely different product - a cakey brownie with thick, sweet, chocolate frosting. Yes, Metcalfe's is on the pricey side, but for a few select items it's worth the extra scratch to get something a cut above the competition. More...

There are challenges in Madison finding a coffee shop with really good coffee, clean atmosphere, and attentive staff. The cafe at Metcalfe's suffers none of these.  The staff is great, the coffee (True coffee roasters), is better brewed than that of True coffee locations (especially the one in Fitchburg). They also have tea and a tons of other specialty beverages I don't drink but maybe I'll expand my palate some day. Pete does a great job leading things and it's obvious he has a personal commitment to his work. More...

Hands down my favorite place to grocery shop. They have all of the high end produce and organic foods that you would expect from a place like Whole Foods, but at a more reasonable price. On top of that, they still carry all of the normal items you would expect to see at a grocery store. If you live within 15 mins of this store, you need to grocery shop here. Do It! More...

Lacks the charm of the Hilldale location but also less crowded.  Metcalfe's is well known for their high food standards, customer service, and, as a result, somewhat elevated prices.  The Mineral Point location makes no exception.  Good selection of cheeses, fresh meats, produce, flowers, and imported "ethnic" foods.As a former Cub Foods, this store can feel a little cavernous (high warehouse ceilings) compared to the flagship Hilldale location.  However, the wider aisles make shopping more pleasant during special events-: ne of the events  at this location would have been extremely hard to navigate at Hilldale, but I encountered no problems here.As always, the prices at Metcalfe's are higher, so stay away from the common durable goods and stick to the perimeter and you'll be good!

This is a very, very nice grocery store; it reminds me of the HEB chain in Texas. The store is spotless and the staff are beyond friendly/helpful. They have a large selection of everything, including brands that oftentimes will not be stocked by other stores because of the price. They also have a nice deli/fresh food section that has lunch specials throughout the week. In the back of the store is a gluten-free, organic, etc. area that also has a good amount of choices. Do be wary, Metcalfe's is definitely on the pricier side of most grocery stores, but I am happy to pay for quality and a nice shopping experience. More...

I'm a die hard Metcalfe's fan, and I recently became even a bigger fan of this location. They have so many gluten free options - even a bigger selection than the location at Hilldale, I think. It's also all in one place, which makes it easier to shop instead of searching and searching around the store. More...

I love, love, love this store and wish I had found it sooner! I prefer this location to the Hilldale one since parking is easier and the store is less hectic.  At the Hilldale location, I have literally had to wait 15-20 minutes at times for the deli counter.  I don't know about you, but I don't need lunch meat that badly.  They carry Boar's Head lunch meat and will ask you how you like it sliced.  Their produce is amazing, and to be honest, doesn't cost much more than the local store that is known for including free fruit flies with their produce.  You don't have to worry about needing to throw it away after 3 days, so your money is saved right there.  They have an amazing bakery section and also an amazing cheese selection.  You can find quality butcher meats on sale for very reasonable prices as well if you watch their ads.  I haven't tried their various salad bars, but everything looks really fresh.  I would say that this is the best grocery store in Madison.

My wife and I really did not like the old Cub Foods but Metcalfes Market is totally remodeled and the quality has increased across all departments in the store. It's our first choice for grocery shopping because of the fresh produce and meat. The selection is excellent for a store of it's size. The staff is helpful and friendly as well. It's well worth your time to check this place out! More...

I wondered for a year if this place would ever get up to speed. It seemed like the conversion from Cub Foods to Metcalfe's took forever - and every time I went, I left disappointed (because it wasn't even close to the fabulousness that is their Hilldale store).Well, glory hallelujah - it's finally finished! It's much larger than the Hilldale store - in fact, it feels almost cavernous by comparison. But that's not a dig - there's nothing I hate more than an overcrowded grocery store. The lighting is interesting - spotlit in the fresh food areas and deli, with standard overhead lighting in the supermarket aisles.Now, I have to say, I haven't done a "full shop" at Metcalfe's - and probably won't. Their prices on standard grocery items are MUCH higher than those at other stores in the area (Woodman's, most notably). But frankly, I don't think that's why one shops at Metcalfe's. It's for the lovely produce, great bakery and top-notch specialty items, as well as the terrific deli and ready-to-eat foods (soups, salad bar, etc). One of my very favorite things is that they always have chopped or shredded rotisserie chicken on their salad bar. Sometimes I by-pass the salad and just get a container of chicken - a welcome short-cut to a homemade frittata, risotto, or gumbo. (Of course, I probably shouldn't have mentioned that - because now everybody will do as I do, leaving me SOL when I need chicken.)In fact, I've developed a little Sunday ritual - grabbing a latte at a nearby coffee shop, then stopping into Metcalfe's for a little "coffee and" from their wonderful selection of local, artisanal pastries. It's a lovely moment of tranquility before I dive back into the work week. More...

I have heard a number of good things about Metcalfes but have never shopped there until today.  Overall it was sort of a mixed bag.   Let me list the reasons why.First the positives:   There is an emphasis on cleanliness right when you enter the store with hand sanitizers and also a clean floor and clean doors.  There is a lot of room which is in contrast to other grocery stores that do not leave enough room for you to shop.  They carry some unique selections on cheese, sausage and other items that you will not find at other stores.   They have a nice bakery, meat counter and deli counter with adequate and knowledgeable staff.  I bought a T-bone steak and it was truly delicious.  Nice bags to carry my groceries home with.The negatives:  Pricey.  I found a number of items that were more than I usually pay for them at my regular grocery.   Disorienting.  One department blends into the next without a clear defining line.  This is only in the outer areas of the store.  Maybe this is something you can get used to if you shop there a lot.  I got some filled doughnuts and they were way too sweet for me.  Too much frosting and too much filling.  One doughnut was difficult to finish.  The bags are so nice but I wonder about their environmental impact and cost.Overall you can tell that people are really working hard here to make this a good store and I am personally glad to have them here in Madison.  But, I get a strange vibe here and don't know for sure what it is.   I love grocery stores, how they tantalize my taste buds and get me to consider buying new items.  I didn't get this here.  Instead I felt led toward high priced items and turned around this way and that.   I almost never shop the middle of the store except for a few items so the outside is what needs to draw me in and keep me coming back for more.  The one thing that did do this was the meat counter.   Their cuts of steak were not only beautiful and thick but the ones I purchased were terrific.   So I will stop back again if only for some steak.Update:They have cleaned up the front area so it is easier to navigate.  This is a really nice store.   I find myself shopping here more for some very good selection and great steaks.

I like this place.  It is more expensive and has less selection than some other grocery stores (ahem, Woodman's), but it has it's own thing going on and I dig it.They have this Food Miles program that tells you how many miles away much of their local items have traveled.  If you like buying local (from produce to New Glarus beers) Metcalfe's makes it super easy.This particular location is almost finished with a nice remodel, and since it is the closest grocery store to me, I swing by often to grab that pesky item I'm all out of when cooking up a meal.Also of note, there is a Redbox at this store which I frequent.
