Easy “Friends” like atmosphere, tons of salads, soups, and insanely delicious dessert bars, their sandwiches are the star here - utterly divine!

We stopped in for a bite to eat while strolling Third Street in Geneva. Greeted warmly by the same sweet lady that ended up serving our meal. She was very helpful, explaining all the options (our faces said “never been here” I guess!). My husband...More

This place was recommended as a good place for a light lunch. I chose the special-of -the-day grilled cheese sandwich. The presentation lacked everything. A grilled cheese cut in half on a large white plate with a beige napkin taking up the other space on...More

This is a cool little place in the heart of Geneva. It's a deli-type order-at-the-counter restaurant. My husband and I both ordered the Roast Beef sandwich (one on french bread, the other on multi-grain). The sandwiches were generous and delicious. Sandwiches are around $8 which...More

Really enjoyed the roast beef sandwich. The market is very cool. Very trendy. Food was fresh and scratch made. Loved the sandwich and beet salad but the beer and cheddar soup was a little bland. Looking forward to coming back with my wife.

Fresh ingredients, delicious bread, and a homey atmosphere make Dean's a great place to eat. I had their creamy chicken soup. It was the best I've ever eaten! Their sandwiches can't be beat! A great place to eat in downtown Geneva.

Terrific sandwiches, freshly made, as well as soups, with specials changing daily. The pastrami is made once a week, and is delicious. I loved the laid back atmosphere with oversized comfy armchairs - it felt a little like that coffee shop in "Friends"!

This is a must/stop deli if you're in the area. They have a chef built menu and some really creative and artisan sandwiches. They have a spin on several sandwiches, such as the wedge BLT sandwich. it's like a wedge salad, but between two pieces...More
