I grew up coming to this deli, but I realize it can be completely overwhelming to a first-timer. Grab your number immediately if you need help at the deli-stand (always the most busy) and then steer clear of the counter until your number is called....More

We recently ordered the famous Kaufman deli trays and were quite pleased. Everything was delicious. The breads, rolls, pastries, and cookies were absolutely wonderful. Do order the eggplant and lentil salads -- they are fabulous.

Their bagels are fresh and warm. The frozen soups are delicious and worth a try. They have many sandwiches too that are quite good.

It had been awhile since we were last at Kaufman's Bagel & Delicatessen, so we came back for another try. Again, our only disappointment was that there was absolutely no room for dessert. Each of our sandwiches came with a pickle spear. I also ordered...More

Felt like herring for dinner. Stopped in and had a wide choice of matjes fillets, regular herring fillets, cream herring, wine sauce herring. The matjes fillets were delicious. Bagels were delicious. Took home some lox and cream cheese for the next morning. We enjoyed everything...More
