Fantastic service, beautiful setting, gorgeous view. And the food = amazing. Best coffee we had our entire trip. We split a breakfast burrito and couldn't stop raving how great it tasted. We will definitely be back.

We are so happy DC Deli has been open for breakfast/lunch items since November.. Stopped twice during the last week of December. The Eggs Benedict (with freshly made Hollandaise Sauce) is my new favorite. Love the great cheery atmosphere provided by Candace and Boyd is a master in the kitchen! And, now they plan on open hours through January....we will... More

First, it's great to have a restaurant open on the lake side in off season. I had breakfast there yesterday and today. Yesterday was baked oatmeal with real maple syrup, nuts and fruit. Outstanding. Today was a ham and cheese omelet, with potatoes, and a fresh baked muffin. It was whipped which I really prefer. So two great breakfasts, and... More

The BBQ rib dinner has always been a favorite, but stopped yesterday and enjoyed a new addition that just started this week "BREAKFAST". Our party of 4 each enjoyed something different from the menu. Everyone was pleased. Excellent - homemade - good ingredients. Breakfast is a favorite anytime of day. You will not be disappointed. Love this spot!!!!

With so many eateries closed for the season, DC Deli has Fall hours. We were cheerfully welcomed by Candice, lovely owner with her chef-husband. She made a fresh pot of rich dark roast coffee for us in spite of our being the last guests of the day. The menu has many tempting "home smoked" meats. We enjoyed two hot-to-the-table choices....

This is really a great place to eat. My husband and I split the rib dinner. I think they charged a couple of bucks so we both got all the sides. Everything was excellent. Food, cleanliness, friendly staff, all excellent

Stopped for lunch on a cool fall day, the shrimp and pork belly porboy was great. My wife had the perch sandwich declaring it among the best ever had. Being jealous, and growing up on the Wisconsin Friday night fish fry, when asked what I wanted for dessert I ordered three pieces of perch. My wife also indulged declaring"damn that's... More

Had a terrific lunch including home made soup, great sandwiches, and fabulous pie. they also have local craft bear on tap and can make great recommendations. It's very small so you might have to wait a few minutes, but it's worth it!

Now I know why so many people rated this cafe 5 stars. The perfect lunch place. Tasty fresh food, sunny room, nice service. It's a cafe, not a deli.
