You might be confused that a place called the Linden Store in Wellesley is actually a deli and the best place for sandwiches in metro west Boston area. You would be forgiven for that. Evidently this place’s reputation is so strong the name doesn’t matter....More

Linden Store is one of those places you feel good going to. Friendly staff, buzzing environment and excellent quality sandwiches and breakfast, there is a reason it’s almost always busy.

There is a great reason the parking lot is always full at The Linden Store. The food is fresh and delicious. Don't be daunted by long lines as the set up is highly efficient and moves people through quickly.

The Linden Store was founded in 1933. Operated by the entire family, the Store was an immediate success. It has been in business continuously and is well known for consistent quality and service. Son Greg began working under his parents' supervision at the age of ten, while son Mark joined in his high school years. Today Mark and Greg are the owners of The Linden Store Deli. While the Deli continues to offer traditionally awesome favorites, the menu has evolved to meet our clientele's tastes and needs. We use only the best suppliers and receive shipments daily to ensure fresh products. Committed to embracing our strong local roots, The Linden Store has been providing delicious deli food to generations in the greater Wellesley community. We enthusiastically support youth efforts by donating to school and sports programs in Wellesley and surrounding communities and take pride in being part of the neighborhood fabric. Babson College, Wellesley College, Dana Hall School and Fessendon School are just a few of the numerous educational institutions that plan their catered events through TLS. Many companies such as Morgan Stanley and Merrill Lynch also choose to regularly cater through The Store. The atmosphere here is authentic and upbeat; nostalgic yet current. We have a sincere and friendly staff who have been part of the Deli team for decades. Together with you, let's keep the Linden Store deli going for a lifetime.
