Absolutely wonderful corned beef and pastrami....excellent salads (I love the California salad and poppyseed dressing!) and yummy desserts. You can't go wrong when you are in the mood for a super sandwich. Almost forgot to say that their soups are wonderful!

This place makes the best Rueben sandwich. I also like their other sandwiches and salad combined with their homemade soup. Their Cobb Salad is a nice portion and always fresh ingredients. For dessert you have to try the bakery next door called Periwinkle Bakery. I like their pecan bars and lemon bars. I have ordered their tortes as well and... More

Wow, where do I begin… This deli restaurant has consistently outstanding food. They have a wonderful selection of sweet treats baked fresh at their sister location right across the alley between them and they have a great selection of fresh made sandwiches, homemade soups and sides as well. I have likely been here 15+ times in '16 since our company... More

Had a great corned beef sandwich. Plenty of tender meat on it. With the included side of your choice, half a sandwich would be enough for lunch.
