Fantastic little deli in Courtenay. Huge selection of cheeses, then a huge selection of all the other things you'd expect in a quality deli: preserves, candies and as it's got a German bent, a lot of German themed candies and delicacies. Staff are really helpful and knowledgeable as well. Really highly recommended.

Whether you must have fresh eggs, or European cheeses and sausages, or Dutch, Indonesian, German specialty food, this deli offers a great selection in a tiny space. Lots of variety, and always something yummy to try.

Make sure you take the time to visit Runges when you are in downtown Courtenay. They have so much amazing European food it takes a while to get around the store. If you are looking for something, the staff are very helpful and will give you some good tips. Check out their very lovely window decorations, they are a piece... More

There's so much to see here that it would take several visits to really appreciate it all. Wonderful imported European treats, great deli and take-out. Friendly staff. It's something else at Christmas, you can get lots of great gifts and stocking stuffers there but any time of the year it's worth a visit.

If you like licorice and/or Salmiak this is a great place to check out their good variety of bulk treats. Reasonably priced as well.

Came in hoping to build my own meat and cheese board and the staff member was extremely helpful in suggesting types of meat and cheeses. Product was fresh and yummy. Would definitely go back for all my deli needs.

Superb selection of cheeses and other deli items. They make absolutely amazing sandwich as well. It's a small shop that's well stocked with what you should find in a good deli - a focussed array of speciality products - for example 10 kinds of chutney or hot sauce. Between this place and the Butchers Block a few doors down I... More

Best place in the Comox Valley for licorice lovers! And marzipan, and deli meats and cheeses straight from Europe. Awesome, memory-evoking food selection!

The movement inside the Deli is very restricting if there are several people in there but it is worth the time to browse over everything they have in the store. It's not just fine foods and deli, they have so much more. I love Jim Shore and they carry a good selection along with items that are almost impossible to... More
