It can be a bit crowded, but the sheer amount of choices is worth it. Sandwiches are delicious. Best place to purchase food and go to beach! Love the egg salad sandwich. Many desserts too and all kinds of beverage choices. A bit pricey, but worth treating yourself.

They have a beautiful selection of sandwiches, quiches, ready made food, wine, treats, bakery goods. This is your spot to grab a picnic lunch or just a quick lunch.

This small deli has a great selection of salads and sandwiches, and is a wonderful place to find lovely food for a beach excursion. The staff is helpful and friendly and the selection is great.

5th Ave Deli is a delicious stop for packaged snacks, hot soups, salads, made to order sandwiches, AMAZING quiche, muffins, cookies, candy bars, and any drinks that you could ever want. Seriously, this store is truly glorious and my daughter and I picked up snacks for the PCH drive as well as a beach picnic. They also offer catering. For... More

This very small deli was packed with wonderful food for breakfast, lunch and even dinner. They had box lunches you could take down to the beach (sandwiches were excellent). Along with that everyone that worked there were friendly, even on our first (of many) visits during our trip, they felt familiar!

On our walk-about through Carmel, we heard about this reasonably priced deli with great food. After some searching, we found 5th Ave Deli & Catering and they exceeded our expectations! They have a strong selection of the deli favorites with lots of choices for extras and sides. I got the turkey sandwich and the meat was thick-sliced (see pic) and... More

We stopped by here on our way to a nearby park, to get some sandwiches for a picnic lunch. The deli is clean and has a good selection, ranging from soups to sandwiches, pre-prepared salads and pastas. We had one of the salads, which was fresh and tasty. The sandwiches had a good balance of flavor (i.e., not overpowered by... More

In looking for lunch at the beach or park in a break from our tasting we checked out 5th Avenue Deli for supplies. Here we found more than enough: custom made-to-order sandwiches, a taco bar, salads and the usual necessities like candy, chips...and wine. We were given directions to a local park where we quietly picnicked, the scene complete when... More

We tried this deli on a recent vacation, and went back multiple times during our trip. The food is delicious and they have a huge selection. Gluten free bread is available for all sandwiches, and I don't believe they charged extra for it. The staff is amazingly helpful and friendly. I had the salmon sandwich on g-free bread, and it...

So happy I discovered this little local gem which seemed to be a family business. It was my take out breakfast/lunch spot while I stayed in Carmel. They make delicious burritos (and many other things) on the spot fresh so you can customize your order how you like. I took it to go and ate on the beach. They make... More
