I go here almost every year for my birthday or if I am making a quick stop. This place is my favorite to go for breakfast or lunch. Great prices and amazing staff. I always leave full and with some great memories.

I visit this Deli about 4 times a year and I have never had a bad sandwich, meal or experience here, very friendly folks all around working here and quick service too. Very tasty, well made, sandwiches as well.
I visited some friends at Cornell and they took me to this place for a hungover breakfast! As a pretty active person I eat a lot of fry ups in the morning to get me ready for the day, and here I didn't expect much...More
