Not too long ago, the quick and convenient option of a grab-and-go destination was preferred for a no-fuss breakfast on the way to the office or lunch on-the-run. But in this new world, where dining out has turned into dining in, many places have gotten creative with a large variety of grab-and-go offerings that can be enjoyed anywhere.

Whether it’s the particular way a café prepares a sandwich, the warmth and comfort of a decadent baked good from a beloved bakery, or locally sourced items which can be hard to find in big chain grocery stores, few things compare to finding your favorite eats in a fast and reliable way. These restaurants and markets are making it so that almost anything and everything is available to grab-and-go… wherever it is you might be going.
