I love this deli - it has great food, both to eat in or to purchase to take home. The prepared foods are excellent, the breads are excellent and the wine selection is small but very high quality and reasonably priced.

I have never seen a place like this before. So many different stations to order food to eat there or to go. Traditional deli plus wine, beer, gifts, burgers, pastas, sandwiches and desserts. A must visit if in Portland!

I too saw plenty of vegan options, plus there are clerks at the deli counters to steer you towards vegan options for takeaway items.
