My son and I enjoyed a wonderful lunch whilst being entertained by a base and accordion. Felt like I could be in France or Italy. If we'd taken the time to share a bottle of wine from their great selection I was there. But wait instead we were enjoying beautiful Bellingham, Wa.

Always fresh ingredients, beautifully prepared and presented. Great place to shop for wines and gourmet items also. Your questions up there about one of best meals in a restaurant? No; but in a deli, yes. That question is not relevant. This deli tops all in its category.

I was looking for a place to get a fast meal downtown and Old World Deli was recommended. I got a sandwich and my wife got a salad both of which we shared. They were both quite good, but not exceptional, sort of what you would expect from a good deli.

I've been to many delis over the years. Good corned beef here. The inlaws liked the food, but the value wasn't there.

I had the sandwich and soup. Good and fresh. It was the best bowl of split pea and ham I have ever had. I was entertained by a base and accordion.

Old World Deli is a little gem in Bellingham where one can find really nice imported wines, lovely sandwiches, and a warm atmosphere. It is a perfect spot to duck in on a rainy day, uncork a nice bottle of wine with friends, and enjoy one of their pannini. The owners and staff of the deli are helpful and friendly.

Great sandwich shop. My husband and I have been making quite a few day trips to Bellingham from Vancouver and we love this town. We just discovered this deli yesterday and it was great. I got the Veggie Muffuletta and my husband a panini. Very welcoming, great service, with lots of options for lunch and also drink options. It looks... More

Great sandwiches made with real italian meats. The real deal. Very pleasant lunch with a good glass of house wine. Took some salami and cheeses from their deli to take home. Highly recommend.

Nice spot for sandwiches and soups. A large selection of wines and beers. Sort of a gourmet picnic basket shop and restaurant combined. I really liked the casual atmosphere in this older building. High ceilings and exposed brick, wood floors. I had potato soup with rosemary that was very good. Sandwiches are also very good. Lots of specialty meats and... More
