Casual Gourmet

A friendly oasis for foodies in Glenwood, Casual Gourmet offers fine food shopping, breakfast and lunch items, and gourmet gifts all in one spot.

You can fill your hankering for exotic sauces, dressings, dry goods, cheeses and more, as well as pick up some great ideas for snacks and dinner. Many of the items have recipes or tips right alongside, or you can ask one of the helpful and informative staff for their suggestions.

If you want something great right away, choose a freshly made sandwich, crepe, or pastry (via Bonaparte Bakery) from their counter. Sandwiches of top-quality ingredients are made to order. Sweet and savory crepes are available Friday - Sunday, or anytime with an order of two or more. Casual Gourmet also has a full range of hot and iced drinks, including coffee, lattes and chai with lots of different flavorings.

While you're there, browse the aisles for all manner of cool goodies for your favorite chef or wannabe. Casual Gourmet features items from All Clad, Nordicware, Norpro and Mario Battali in a wide range of prices. You never know when that exotic cake mold or martini mixer will come in handy.

Located just south of the Glenwood Library and Community Center on Route 97, Casual Gourmet is a convenient stop in western Howard County for the food conscious.
