As you can see the quality of food can overcome a myriad of issues. This is the case for the Yellow Deli. Clean savory. Gourmet sums it up. Good food order ahead.

Pleasant enough place. The food is of adequate quality, but with some excellent unusual items on the menu for a sandwich shop. The lamb sandwich is quite outstanding. Sadly, the ambience is struggling to preserve something that should have been allowed to die a peaceful...More

I would not recommend it. I don't think they have the space and also the food selection for a large family group
