Poor selection of prepped foods. Portapotty for a bathroom! EXPENSIVE GAS. Staff was kind, but if you're looking for fresh food, keep going!

Everyone was so helpful with information about where to go, etc. The deli has a very interesting assortment of food choices, potstickers, samoses, potato salad, seaweed salad with sesame seeds, quino salad, and much more. Great choices of wines and drinks.

Small local store to pickup that one item you forgot or grab a sandwich for a picnic lunch. There are a couple of tables in the back of the store if you want to eat on site and enjoy a view of the ocean. We stopped by to pick up a deli sandwich for our picnic lunch. Ordered the bacon... More

It's not just because it's the only game in town that I would give five stars, but because the deli is making an effort to have a wide range of interesting salads as well as both pre-made sandwiches and custom sandwiches. It is much appreciated.

The Little River Market & Deli has a very nice and varied menu, both hot and cold, that can be enjoyed there or taken to the nearby Van Damme beach. The fish tacos are an interesting take on the traditional version, and the seaweed salad is excellent. There are a couple of tables and counter seating in the back of... More

If you don't have time to get a full meal across the road at the Little River Inn, and want a quick bite, then make the stop. BIG sandwiches, salads, drinks, chips, all quickly available and from friendly people. You can save money, run back to the nearby beach or head back into Van Dame State Park for your camping...

Friendly, clean, fresh, great products/ selection. Post Office next door, went in to buy something small to justify using the air and bought loads!

My husband and I stumbled upon this deli on one of our motorcycle trips. We were hungry but the usual delis typically serve sandwiches and maybe a salad or two. My husband can't do gluten, and I'm a vegetarian, so that cuts down on menu choices. We were pleasantly surprised to find a variety of unique salads to choose from.... More

The prices has definitely increased and the selections seem to have changed a bit. While this is a good place to stop for something if you forgot to get it in town, it is a bit pricey.
