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 modern specialty sandwiches also on the menu for those who want something less old-style. Will return for future lunches.

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 a Reuben snob). Very reasonably priced for the portion you receive. A huge bonus is the location--historic 19th street in the Heights which is filled with quirky shops and other small businesses!

Great sandwich spot located in the heart of the Heights! Order at the counter and be hungry! Generous portions, fun environment and perfect stop when you're tired of shopping!

While on an outing with wife and mother in law, stopped in for lunch This is a usual stop for wife and mother in law. It is awesome . The chicken salad was great but the clam chowder was outstanding. Well worth a detour from I10.

This is a local favorite. Everything is fresh and good quality. I love the soups especially. They honor the history and architecture of the neighborhood and they participate in the community. I love that you can get half a sandwich if you can't eat a whole one.
