The best vegetable soup! I had it the day my daughter was born 23 years ago and I had it last week. The same recipe and wonderful taste, served with a French roll.

Chelsea's Deli is a great local spot with some really awesome food that's decently priced. Their Chicken salad is out of this world. This place is not a New York style deli so don't go expecting thick cuts of tongue or corned beef.

Probably the best deli Kingwood. Yes, the decor is not the most modern but who cares?!? The food more than makes up for it. The sandwiches are soups are always good here Our favorite is the Chicken Salad. Like a previous reviewer posted, they do need to clean the place more. It's not dirty by any means but they could...

Chelsea is noted for their chicken salad which is very good. I love their garden salad which is loaded with lots of goodies and you can get deli breads with it. I gave it four stars because this place has not been updated since the 60's. We will continue every Thursday to go and get food..our late arrival day...but I... More

Stopped in for lunch. They were out of the chicken salad which was most disappointing. The menu from there is a smidge limited. I got a turkey sandwich which was uninspired (they were out of avocado too) and a bowl of vegetable soup that was outstanding. Kind of small not overwhelmingly clean place but not a bad place for lunch.

I never drive by this lunch spot without stopping I love their chicken salad sandwich on a baguette or their egg salad sandwich. Heck, you can't go wrong on anything you order!!

Small cafe with really great food. Famous in the area for thei chicken salad. Always get it for parties. Love their red potato salad. Carrot raisin salad is wonderful. Large selection of meats and breads for sandwiches.

Good sandwiches made quick with fresh meats and cheeses. Enjoy the roast beef and chicken salad which is what they are known for.

Very disappointed. I overall like this place but you would think that having been in businees since 1984 they would A) Expand. Way to crowded... More

I usually love Chelsea's! Love their chicken salad and french bread/croissants. Went in last month to pick up 4 sandwiches to go...the guy that made my sandwiches was so slow that the next 6-7 people after me were done before I finally got mine!!!!
