I think the restaurant may have fallen on hard times. They no longer had dinner salads available, although they were listed on the menu. They did give my wife her tuna salad on lettuce instead of bread, however. The 17-1/2 (corned beef, Swiss, Cole slaw,...More

There are other great delis in the Ann arbor area, but Bread Basket remains a favorite. Fair prices for a thick, delicious, fresh sandwich. Great variety.

The Ypsilanti Bread Basket Deli used to be a favorite of ours for years. From the big, meaty, sandwiches on grilled Rye and their house dressing, they were perfect. Plus they weren't too fatty. Now there's a new owner, and new changes. He's a very...More

Not impressed. Over priced. Food was not good. No flavor. Corned beef on Reuben was fatty. Place was dirty and smelled like a grease pit. I will not be going back.

We've eaten here often but our last visit was not good. Lobster bisque (and how many delis have that?) was sludgy, lobster-less and obviously scraped from bottom of barrel though it was still lunchtime. Corned beef sandwich was reliable but egg salad had no seasoning...More

Always have to stop when we're in town. In town for football and college visits. Had the usual matzo ball soup and corn beef in pastrami on a onion roll. SO SO GOOD. Cant wait to go back.

Been a loyal customer for years. Noticed changes in recent months. Prices increased. Soups not as tasty and/or creamy. Corned beef (always request lean) still good. Hope the new owners keep it that way.

I travel to Ann Arbor monthly and the Bread Basket deli is always on my list of "must visit" for lunch. Although known for their corned beef, their pastrami sandwich is also outstanding. Very friendly people and consistently outstanding.

Ridiculous policy... If you're going to make me print a coupon to buy an overpriced sandwich ($12.44 for an ala crate regular size tuna--on an onion roll, which I ordered but didn't get!), I'm not going to do it because I care about the environment....More
