This place is an institution in Anacortes. It is really popular with the locals. You have to wait in line to order and then find a table and they bring it to you. The rotating soups are popular. Prices are reasonable and portions are good. Lots of specials and salads plus extensive list of sandwiches. My fav is the "Some... More

I've been here a couple times, once at breakfast and once at lunch. Both were excellent. Lunchtime is busy, full of locals so you know it is good. Breakfast was awesome, two of us split a breakfast sandwich on ciabatta bread, that plus coffee made our morning. This is a really good, unpretentious, friendly deli in a cool old building.... More

Gere-a-deli has been a local favorite for over thirty years. At lunch, around 1130am, no matter what day it is, there is a line to the door. So arrive before or after the lunch rush. They have a great selection of sandwiches, salads, soups and baked goods, and old-timey sodas. I really like the Fidalgo Island salad with walnuts, raisins,... More

Every time we go to Gere-a-Deli we're impresses with the food. They make every sandwich to order and they are loaded with meat and so much flavor. They are always busy but you can always find a table. The desserts...the fidalgo cookie is loaded with everything and is the perfect way to end the meal (my husband likes the brownie).... More

Delicious options await you here. My favorite is the quiche with a salad, but there are many choices of sandwiches, homemade soup daily and a kids menu. And if you have a sweet tooth there are many options ....brownies, cookies, cheesecake...just to name a few. Lunch can be busy but the line moves fast. You order at the counter then... More

This is the perfect place to lunch in Anacortes. They turn out some generously portioned salads and sandwiches. Quality ingredients and breads. Good prompt service.

Looking for a lunch restaurant, we found this very busy place on the main street in a lofty, refurbished bank building. Line-up for ordering, efficient counter service, great specials. Luckily there was one empty table, among the three dozen or so. Unfortunately, our cappuccino order was at first mishandled, but was made-up for by an offer for free desert, which... More
