For many years, 1909 has been our preferred caterer for lunches at my workplace, the historical Coral Gables Congregational Church. The quality of the ingredients is terrific and the delivery service reliable and polite. 1909 moved fairly recently to a new location on Red Road (SW 57th Avenue) a bit north of Coral Way (SW 24th Street). I expect their... More

I eat from here a few times a week for lunch. I love it. Good sandwiches and delicious cookies. They have an awesome carrot soup as well!

Small little place with amazing sandwiches!! My top 3 choices are: The Godfather, New York Pastrami and Turkey Francais. Want to satisfy your sweet tooth? Have an iced chai or chocolate chip cookies. Staff are friendly and always greet you with a smile, will come back again and again and again!

1909 is a sorry excuse for a deli. Their sandwitches aren't bad but the side salads are absolutely awful, don't bother getting one. The service is a joke, i was told 5 minutes over the phone, i arrived 15 mins later, and nothing was ready. The woman was completely incompetant. She didnt make the salad because they were out of...

This one worker is so dumb that every time I go i find myself getting the wrong order and having to deal with her stupidity in conversation. The food is really great and that's why I have gone Back so many times but this is the last straw with this woman. I don't know why she hasn't been fired yet.

Their daily specials are always great! Soups and sandwiches are fresh and very tasty. Staff could be a little friendlier.

They have great soups and sandwiches. My favorite is the Turkey Francais sandwich. The place is small, but they have tables outside. The staff has always been super nice, and the service is quick. I love to eat there!

This is basically a sandwich shop, which is just what my partner and I wanted. We found the place on Trip Advisor and the ratings were good. But we were really dissappointed with the food more than anything. I ordered the Pesto Chicken Sandwich and he ordered the Medeterranean Turkey (which he liked ok, although it had globs of alfalfa...
