We love the yellow deli. Not a deli in that it isn't a place to get a sandwich to go. But the food is great. The staff is friendly and great prices.

This place may look a little funky from the outside, and once you are inside you will know it is for sure. I cannot believe they can make such flavorful sandwiches! That is not all they make but that is what I had. Try them!

Upon several recommendations, we had tried a few times to go to this restaurant but found it closed, so we were really happy to finally be able to have lunch at this funky deli. The menu is limited, but less is more. I had the volkswich which had the most delicious melt in your mouth pastrami I have ever had.... More

Very unique atmosphere. Fits perfectly in an upbeat college town. Small menu but everything we had was fantastic! We would definitely return.

This deli was recommended by friends that have visited the area in the past. The decor is unbelievably aesthetic, warm and friendly. The staff is very kind. The menu is small and offers unique quality sandwiches. I was told I had to try the soup, no matter what the selection. It was lentil and it was good although it contained... More

Not sure what the deal is but there is some religious affiliation here. Absolutely stunning inside. Great re-purposed classic building. Super packed (hot spot). Super nice staff. Weird eggs. Good waffle. Nice vibes. Would def go back. Be prepared to wait for a table, and for the wait to be worth it.

I've been to this restaurant a number of times with my son and friends. It is a unique setting with unique service staff. One example is the response when I asked if they had any desserts with chocolate. The waiter explained the merits of carob and the atrocity that is chocolate. He was very impassioned in his opinion and happy... More
