Just a random stop after seeing the deli while doing morning shopping chores. Went back for lunch and am glad I did. Ham and Brie is a great sandwich and could easily serve two. A classic old-style deli in many ways, with the list of...More

This place is the real deal. Classic delicatessen with old school charm! The employees were so friendly and made suggestions on what to order; I went with the ham and Brie which was excellent! My boyfriend got the Reuben and he really enjoyed it (he's...More
