Great breakfast sandwiches and coffee and juice. Next door is a small but well stocked Italian market so if your a boater looking to hook up s light meal with fresh olive oil, parmesan cheese and some speciality sauces it shares a front door with this deli. We picked up a turkey sub to go for lunch on the canal... More

This is a great NYC style deli with amazing sandwiches. Well worth the try. The pastrami is my favorite.

This retro-looking deli is easy walking distance from the It's A Wonderful Life Museum. They mainly serve sandwiches, many named after characters from the movie. Our timing, right after lunch, must have been a bad time for the staff. Nobody told us how to order (stand at the far end of the counter and make your selection), they gave us... More

We stood around for awhile before someone even glanced our way-and then let us know that we needed to order at the counter and not at a table. Then it took awhile before someone seemed inclined to take our order. My husband ordered a Chef's Salad....which was nothing more than greens with some tomato in it....no cheese, cold cuts, or...

We stumbled across this place as we needed a quick lunch and absolutely loved the selection of creative sandwiches. I could come here everyday for a week and try a different sandwich that sounds tempting.

So the experience here unfortunately was not to good , the staff at the time was not very pleasant. Then I found out from a friend that they were rude to her also ! I found out this is not associated with the deli in Auburn which I always have felt that our business mattered !!

Great sandwiches in just about any configuration you can imagine. Both our daughters have left Seneca Falls, but when they are in town, Downtown Deli is a must visit. Also good for catering. 50's deli/diner look is fun.

I ordered a half sandwich and the soup of the day to go. The counter person was surly, apparently because I tried to order from the wrong spot. I ordered a bowl of soup. Server combined two already-filled styrofoam cups and then wiped the soup off the daily special board. It was inedible, as if it had boiled in the... More

I used Tripadvisor to find this well-rated deli and was excited about taking my husband and daughter for lunch. The menu and roll selection had great variety and the prices are fair. Our troubles began at checkout. Their "system" is rather chaotic and unclear to first-timers. I pointed to my daughter and myself and said "we have half sandwiches and... More

Many creative specialty sandwiches, or order one made to your specifications. Cold cuts are fresh and delicious. Many toppings to choose from as well as an assortment of breads. They always have a soup I can enjoy with my half sandwich. Warning...their whole sandwiches are quite large.
