Love this place for great deli sandwiches, homemade soups, and great take away dinners. While I was at a party, the platters of delicious food were so good that I asked the hostess who had catered. Lakeview Deli was her answer. Who knew? This is not a super cheap and quick stop, but a fresh, homemade and delicious. Not to... More

Lakeview always has great dinner specials worth exploring and awesome beer options for pairing. Usually some good desserts to choose from too!

This excellent deli is right on Flower Ave and across from Lake Flower. Get your sandwich and cross the street to enjoy Lake Flower views in good weather. Not much atmosphere and very little seating, but food quality and service more than make up for that. They can prepare all products for take out to include soups. A big hit... More

Tasty sandwiches. Helpful staff. Outdoor seating. Wide selection of beverages-craft beers and sodas in addition to the standard soda offerings. Coffee in a couple favors. Only complaint would be the small number of parking spots and no indoor seating as I recall.

My co-worker and I each had a sandwich was really good! I ordered the Italian with mayo and a hot spread. It was so good! He ordered a BLT and said it was delicious! I also ordered a cup of chili.......yummy. Ambiance isn't the greatest but the food and service (staff) is awesome!

We visit Lakeview Deli a lot! The sandwich specials change daily, and the food and staff are top notch. All at fair prices. Side salads come with specials.

After a rousing ride on the Adirondack Railexplorers pedal-yourself railcars we were ready for lunch. Actually a deli rather than a 7-11 that calls itself a deli. Good sandwiches.
