I love this place! I should mention that I only get the vegetarian cheese sandwich and a beer. It is always consistently delicious, well made and the staff are all friendly. I really enjoy chasing the sandwhich with a beer at the bar on a hot summer day inside this cool nicely designed deli. It really feels like a quintessential... More

I would have to say that Three Pickles is consistently the best. It just nudges out the others for the top spot in my... More

Good value, huge sandwiches and subs for lunch. Look out for their specials, and take a bag of their pickles and chilli peppers. Eat in and have a beer, or take away.

Very clean bistro style place for casual lunch. We had a very good tuna salad, with fresh crumbled tuna, and what they call a club sandwich. The sandwich is not a traditional club, but I enjoyed their version more.

By far the best sandwich I've had in many years (and I've had a few). The staff is so friendly. I just finished my Canon Capicola Club, and I'm so sad because I want another one and I'm full. Wife had the Angus Roast Beef. She was making some very strange noises. I'm guessing it was really good. We will... More
