We never miss the chance to enjoy lunch at the International Deli when we are in Monterey. The owners are knowledgeable, helpful and offer so many delicious menu options and groceries. Don't be afraid to ask for suggestions or advice, as they welcome questions.

This little place is a gem! Really nice folks, very reasonable prices, some of the best gyros, shawarma and baklava we've had (and we've had PLENTY!), and their private roast Turkish coffee is excellent. I live in Seattle, so finding good coffee is not all that challenging, but their roast was so good, I bought a pound of beans, and... More

This really is a cute little market. I got a falafel wrap and it was just wonderful. I would have liked to have gone back and tried some of the other tasty fare. There were two or three? tables but they were kind of in the entrance, so it would be more comfortable to take the food away and eat... More

Walking along Lighthouse Avenue looking for something good to eat, we came upon the Inrernational Market & Deli. They have a nice, varied middle eastern menu and a rather extensive selection of difficult to find spices and groceries. The falafel was very good and the hummus, some of the best I've ever had. The food seemed very fresh and healthy.... More

New owners since September and they were quite hospitable of our large group. International travelers in our group all agreed the food was amazing and authentic. I got the Gyro and it was great!

Ate lunch and was not disappointed. The lentil soup was delicious and the gyro was very tasty. I'm know I'll be back over and over. Highly recommend.

This isn’t a place we would ordinarily pick for lunch. The restaurant we’d planned on was closed, and the BBQ place was out of chicken, so we ate here and were pleased. We both had the vegetarian plate, and although well outside of our comfort zone, the food was quite good. It’s a funky and fun little delicatessen with myriads... More
