Great homemade soups and sandwiches. Not just your middle of the road ham and cheese deli. Counter and outside tables in case you don't want to take it to go. The "Kaitlyn", "Isabella" and "Abby Rose" are my favorite sandwiches. Always fresh ingredients and delicious! There may be a line but plenty of staff to get you in and out... More

I really enjoy their chicken salad sandwiches with dill pickles on a baquette. Their chicken noodle soup is amazing.

Whether it is an old fashion deli breakfast or lunch, you will never go wrong at The Linden Store. Not only do they take orders over the phone for a quick takeout, but their recent renovation makes it easy to grab breakfast or lunch or eat in at the counter or outside. Family run, the restaurant is not short of... More

I've been going to Linden Store for more than 30 years to back when we called it "Nino's." The family-oriented service is great and the subs are the best! I highly recommend the Linden Special, Hot Italian, and the Isabella but you can't really go wrong. Yum!!

You cannot go wrong with any sandwiches from the Linden Store but the Isabella is our favorite: Lots of prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, tomato and loads of basil on a baguette. The deli is roomy and very inviting for eat in, there are tables outside as well. Call in your order for speedy pick up.

Hands down, there isn't a better deli in all of the Greater Boston area. I attended Babson College and ate here at least 3 times a month. It never gets old, the flavours never get dull, and the staff truly make you feel welcome and at home. I still make the trek out to Wellesley just to go eat here... More

I've been getting sandwiches here since I was a little kid - seriously the best ever. I bring friends from all over the US and UK here and everyone always wants to go back when they visit again. They are not stingy with their meats, everything is fresh and delicious. Note: they now have gluten free bread and they use... More

The Linden Store was founded in 1933. Operated by the entire family, the Store was an immediate success. It has been in business continuously and is well known for consistent quality and service. Son Greg began working under his parents' supervision at the age of ten, while son Mark joined in his high school years. Today Mark and Greg are the owners of The Linden Store Deli. While the Deli continues to offer traditionally awesome favorites, the menu has evolved to meet our clientele's tastes and needs. We use only the best suppliers and receive shipments daily to ensure fresh products. Committed to embracing our strong local roots, The Linden Store has been providing delicious deli food to generations in the greater Wellesley community. We enthusiastically support youth efforts by donating to school and sports programs in Wellesley and surrounding communities and take pride in being part of the neighborhood fabric. Babson College, Wellesley College, Dana Hall School and Fessendon School are just a few of the numerous educational institutions that plan their catered events through TLS. Many companies such as Morgan Stanley and Merrill Lynch also choose to regularly cater through The Store. The atmosphere here is authentic and upbeat; nostalgic yet current. We have a sincere and friendly staff who have been part of the Deli team for decades. Together with you, let's keep the Linden Store deli going for a lifetime.
