Great beer selection for such a small shop, and very reasonably priced. Wines are higher priced (hence 4 stars instead of 5) but they do have several inexpensive ones, and they're selective.
Best thing about the Oaks: The Lobster BLT. Also amazing is the Pulled Short Rib Onion Dip sandwich -- melt in your mouth. And the cheese selection is impressive; they carry Purple Haze goat cheese, which is out of this world, as well as some super-sharp aged cheddars that I haven't found elsewhere in the area. YUM!
I'd come here a lot more frequently if the parking situation was a little easier. They have some great baked goods (ie Cake Monkey) and some really tasty sandwiches. The "store" section is fully loaded with wine, cheeses and other gourmet goodies. A good stop for anyone hosting a dinner party
