Stumbled, fortuitously, on Yellow Deli in search of something other than fast food to eat late at night. I was so pleasantly surprised by the ambience when I was greeted at the front patio of this restaurant. Even at 11 o'clock at night I had a small wait for a table because they were THAT busy...this (rightfully) was a good... More

The place has adequate and reasonably priced food. Decor is Awesome. Help is from their local farm and a little frazzled, but are ok and easy to deal with. Worth a Try!

Not much to pick from on the menu. Can't see other than a nice setting what makes this place so special.

Service was OK. Food was not bad, but you must ask yourself if you choose to support a cult. Check them out (the Cult), and then ask yourself if you want to support their beliefs.

I have been faithful friends of many members of our local Tribe in Rutland Vermont for 2 years. I have enjoyed this loyal supportive relationship as well as my many trips to the deli. I enjoy the company of the staff and have a favorite seat by the Juice Bar where I enjoy the Mate Lattes and Chai Nog. There... More

Reminds me of a cozy and warm cabin....just "feels good" to be there! The food is good and healthy choices are available. Delightful teas and beverages. Servers are always pleasant and attentive. The artisan breads and deserts are yummy. I love to bring family and friends here for the first time. They love it!!! Celebrated my birthday there last night.

Very eclectic choices plus a delicious pumpkin pound cake dessert. The building is also very special because every thing has been hand crafted just like the food.
