Branch Street Deli is a great place for a good sandwich. They also have bands from time to time that play out on the patio.

We went here based on the reviews but we were sadly disappointed. It's a burger joint with subpar burgers that plays extremely loud music while you try to dine.

This deli has a wonderful menu with lots of choices for different foods. Great selections and all very tasty, too. Delicious hamburgers, too, as well as nice salad selections. Wonderful large patio area, with lots of table choices, some in shade, some in sun.

This is a fun little deli in the middle of the Village. They have quite a selection, and all of the food we tried was good. Great sandwich choices and tasty wraps. The nice outdoor patio makes for a great lunch on a comfortable day,

We stopped by for drinks before going for dinner. They had a live band which was very good on the patio. The patio had nice gas burning heaters and live music. It was very good. Will be going again to try the food next time.

We have found that this is a good place to meet friends for good food and a quiet conversation every night except Friday when they usually have a band playing.
