This was my go-to for lunch orders at my last corporate job. Great healthy salads, sandwiches, and soups, and all delivered. Bonus, they bring a free lunch for the person ordering.

The City Delicatessen was reasonably priced and it had quick, tasty food. It was good and filling after a walk through the Windmill Island Gardens.

They literally have every type of sandwich you could want! So many options that you'll need a while to check out the menu. And at a decent price.

Before visiting the Windmill Gardens, we had worked up an appetite, so we decided to stop in and have a bite. Very, very good food and courteous! I had the San Diego, which was fresh turkey, lettuce, tomato, bacon and guacamole on toasted home made wheat bread. It was truly good to the last bite!! Definitely coming back!!!

A very laid back restaurant, friendly atmosphere, delicious food, this is a great place for lunch downtown. They have many options for sandwiches which are all delicious, along with a few salads, which are always a great gluten-free option! :)

Trying to find a place with outdoor seating to eat breakfast was close to impossible, but we didn't have much choice since our dog was with us after camping the night before.

I had lunch at The City Delicatessen and was kind of under-whelmed. I had a Reuben that was cold in the middle, I sat at a dirty table, and paid ten bucks for the experience. It was lunch-time in Holland and I thought I'd try someplace new (to me). There are so many great choices in Holland's downtown, so I... More
