The Perfect Picnics Start at Calef’s


Calef's picnic bench

We love a good picnic. Whether its a simple meal outside or a more extravagant experience. Calef’s can help you pack the perfect picnic. And this August, to celebrate Picnic month, we are sharing some of our favorite picnic ideas.

A simple deli picnic

Order ahead and grab everything you need before heading out to your favorite outdoor spot. Even if that is enjoying one of our lovely picnic benches.

We offer easy online ordering so you can get everything you need for an easy meal from sandwiches to drinks to chips and dessert. The hardest part will be deciding what to order!

It’s also super simple to create a meal from sides and deli favorites right on our deli site. We offer small containers of Deli Favorites like a sharp cheddar chunk or pepperoni chunk, Effie’s corn biscuits, whole sour or dill pickles available in individual portions or a pail, ideal for sharing. Pair these delicious snacks with your favorite crackers, chips, or bread. And maybe consider adding a small container of our homemade salads from our deli case. Choose from potato and egg salad, coleslaw, macaroni salad, plain chicken salad, or cranberry walnut chicken salad.

Adding something sweet!

At Calef’s there is no shortage of sweet treats. Make a quick stop at Candyland to create a mixed bag of crowd favorites. Or select something from our finer, gourmet candy and fudge counter. A sweet treat is not only a great way to end a meal, its the nice treat for younger picnic friends.

Other Picnic Essentials!

To properly enjoy a picnic, its best to be prepared. Make sure to have some bug spray and sunblock depending on where you are heading! But most of all have fun and enjoy the company.
