Oh my god...this place is really great! I actually look forward to it every time I visit south haven. Great for lunch during beach time! The sandwiches are so good and they offer sides that are equally good! Healthy eating done well in my opinion.

We read about this deli on Trip Advisor. We had passed by it more times than we can count, knowing nothing about this small, corner deli. We ended up getting carry-out there three times! And each meal was really great! We first tried "The Biltmore"...More

I found it very convenient, as it was a short walk from the beach. Good for sandwiches, chips, other snacks and beverages (lite and hard). My Reuben wasn't quite what I was used to. Although it was large, I would have been satisfied with half...More

The innkeepers at Yelton Manor recommended we get bag lunches from this little store and the sandwiches were fresh and delicious. Ice cream parlor too!

We stopped in to pick up picnic items for lunch. Nice place for just that. Fresh meats, cheese, wine and salads.

We enjoyed staying at the Last Resort Bed and Breakfast and it was almost right across the street from the South Beach. We enjoyed the location and had a nice time at the beach.

This is a wonderful little store--open all year--serving marvelous soup and sandwiches, made to order. Groceries and supplies here too, but it's the sandwiches and Chicago dogs that keep me coming back. It's the only commercial establishment like it on the whole North Side of South Haven.
