Great deli, many choices and varieties of delicacies to enjoy. Service is quick and friendly, prices are high as it's a deli but the taste is great

Brents delicatessen is, in my opinion, the best delicatessen in Los Angeles. Excellent pastrami and very tasty turkey. Can’t go wrong with a good deli.

Because I don't have small kids anymore, I have never noticed but I am sure they do. It's a great restaurant and child friendly.
