Yummy Grocery Delivery?

Passed this place in SM on Pico the other day (website says they have a West Hollywood Location too)....they apparantly deliver groceries and food for 4 bucks...in 30 minutes or less?
Anyone ever try them?
They used to be Homegrocer.com; recent name change and delivery policy changes - now they are Yummy.com. $4 fee, $15 minimum. I believe they now require a $100 order for free delivery. They do send nice coupons out to registered users (current coupon is a pint of Ben & Jerry's ice cream for $.25 with an order of $50 or more).
I am at the extreme of their delivery area, but every time I use their service, they make it to my house in the allotted time.
They carry a standard grocery store selection of item types, although a smaller selection of each type. Nothing extraordinary or even too local, other than maybe the La Brea breads and baked goods. I have never ordered fresh produce from them though - buying produce sight unseen just seemed too risky (unless it is in a CSA context - and even then sometimes).
Generally pretty good. I think their produce is fine but their meats aren't. A lot of the deli sandwiches and salads are good and they are always on time. You can order online at yummy.com which makes it even easier.
Vons and Albertsons have around a $10 delivery fee, and while Albertsons runs your card immediately online, Vons doesn't until right before they deliver. Also, if they don't have something in stock, they won't call you like Yummy.com does, they will usually substitute it (think Diet, instead of regular), unless you specifically ask them not to. However, both stores (Vons + Albertsons) have a much bigger selection of products. I use Yummy because they deliver FAST, and only charge a $3.99 delivery fee.
Since I live in Venice and have no parking, Yummy saves me not only the time and energy of going to the store, but the insanity of not being able to find a parking spot and lugging groceries all over the neighborhood. They definitely get my vote!
