If your out for a quick lunch or an afternoon snack this is the place for you. Try the homemade soup, it's a must. Family owned and small but fresh and quick for sure and very good prices.

If you are in Downtown Chatham, do yourself a favour a stop by Downtown Deli. Paul the owner is very friendly and makes you feel at home. He has a great selection of sandwiches etc., my favourite being the toasted western.
