Enjoyed not only the meal but the atmosphere and staff. The chili is terrific and the carrot cake is outstanding. What a pleasure to find this place. Worth the drive.

First, the inside of this restaurant is amazing. Hand-carved wood abounds. It's like eating in a Swiss Family Robinson treehouse. Someone told us that it was worth going to look at the restaurant alone, and she was right. The care and attention that went into the decor also goes into the food. I was with a large group for lunch... More

My cousin and I stumbled on this wonderful restaurant for lunch while researching our roots in the area of Durham, New York. The sandwiches were great and it is so unique and welcoming on the inside. Once an old opera house they have done an amazing job of restoring the inside and making it a fun and comfortable place.

We love stopping in for a delicious meal at the Yellow Deli in Oak Hill. Their food really fresh and always beautifully and lovingly prepared. They have great sandwiches, soups, salads, granola sundaes and the always-refreshing hibiscus iced tea. The very best, though, is the incredible hand-crafted decor which is a mix between a treehouse and a fantasy hobbit house... More

Delicious food and kind service. I felt like I was eating in a Hobbit hole. Try the spinwich! I am still thinking about their hibiscus iced tea :)

The food at the Yellow Deli is delicious. I love all their sandwiches, but the Waffles are the best!

The first time i went there i thought i was in the shire in the lord of the rings movies due to the hand crafted decor and paintings. They are extremely friendly and polite and they serve everything fresh and organic and im not sure it breakfast gets any better. The fruits, warm apple cider, coffee, yogurts and much much... More
