Calef's crackers - different flavors of Effie's and Sonoma

Picnics are a fun way to slow down and enjoy simple moments because sometimes the simplest things are the most fun. What makes a great picnic is the company and the food! Use this picnic inspiration next time you have a long weekend or a want to create a stay-cation. Or for the upcoming holiday weekend. But be sure to take time this Memorial Day to remember and honor those who gave their life for our country.

The Breakfast Picnic

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, might as well make it special. Grab some coffees, old fashioned cinnamon sugar donuts, and maybe a small hunk of cheese to balance out the sweet. Calef’s also has the best jams and jellies around to create healthy pre-made parfaits. Or check out the Calef’s recipes section for some inspirational recipes featuring jam like Apple Butter Mini Cinnamon Rolls and Old World Bars.

The Savory Picnic

The easiest and arguably most delicious picnic. Stop by the cheese counter for a selection of cheese, bruschetta, pepperoni, olives, and of course Calef’s pickles! Then pick the crackers. From thick Effie’s biscuits to thin pizza crips. We even have Gluten Free crackers. Or grab the supplies for Snappy Old Snap Sandwiches. This one of a kind treat, may sound odd, but are a favorite around here. Take a slice of Snappy Old Cheese and sandwich it between 2 ginger snaps. Just the right balance of sweet and savory. Add a dollop of our hot pepper jelly for a real treat! Ginger snaps, cheddar, and hot pepper jelly can be ordered online and enjoyed anywhere!

The Deli To Go

With easy online ordering you can plan a delicious, low-key picnic. Take a couple minutes to order your favorite Calef’s deli items and grab a seat outside the store or your favorite outdoor spot. It’s easy and convenient and always tastes great. And, if you can’t decide what to get, 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.

No matter what kind of picnic you choose, remember to finish it with something sweet from Candyland, fudge, or gourmet chocolates.
