Walked to the Darling Deli from Dundas. It’s a beautiful up hill walk and coffee and lunch at the Deli is well worth it. The salad plates are delicious and it is hard to select, good coffee and friendly staff. Can’t wait to come back.

We only stopped in for a cuppa and cake, but we left with a few different salads to eat later. The cakes are delicious, and the salas were wonderful as well. This is a great place to stop in after a walk in the country....More

Really love the take away salads: tuna, beetroot, coalslaw etc etc. Good value BUT not very easy to park

Great, simple and consistent food quality! Really poor counter service! Just such miserable staff! Not expecting singing and dancing but a little bit of interaction doesn't go amiss. Unfortunately no longer happy to spend my money in my local Deli- shame!

This is my second visit to Darling Deli and despite finding their customer service poor the first time round I though it's fair to give the establishment a second chance. After all; people are too quick to write a poor review. In fact, I think...More
