Ate a sandwich here. Don't usually eat sandwiches anymore, but I had to try the kielbasa. What a treat! The meat was fresh and delicious and the seasonings added just enough zest.

and the service is stellar. The ladies in there are funny and charming. The kielbasa is absolutely delicious and I would drive down there again just to get some. The pierogis are yummy and very filling.

Right in the middle of town, on Essex St., is this odd little deli with an impressive menu that serves food you can't get anywhere else in town....because there is no other deli in the center of town. Its small inside and can get crowded.
