I had the sandwich and soup. Good and fresh. It was the best bowl of split pea and ham I have ever had. I was entertained by a base and accordion. I enjoyed a bottle of wine from their great selection. With that beautiful music I felt like I could be in France or Italy but instead I was having... More

Old World Deli is a little gem in Bellingham where one can find really nice imported wines, lovely sandwiches, and a warm atmosphere. It is a perfect spot to duck in on a rainy day, uncork a nice bottle of wine with friends, and enjoy one of their pannini. The owners and staff of the deli are helpful and friendly.

Great sandwich shop. My husband and I have been making quite a few day trips to Bellingham from Vancouver and we love this town. We just discovered this deli yesterday and it was great. I got the Veggie Muffuletta and my husband a panini. Very welcoming, great service, with lots of options for lunch and also drink options. It looks... More

Great sandwiches made with real italian meats. The real deal. Very pleasant lunch with a good glass of house wine. Took some salami and cheeses from their deli to take home. Highly recommend.

Nice spot for sandwiches and soups. A large selection of wines and beers. Sort of a gourmet picnic basket shop and restaurant combined. I really liked the casual atmosphere in this older building. High ceilings and exposed brick, wood floors. I had potato soup with rosemary that was very good. Sandwiches are also very good. Lots of specialty meats and... More

I have frequented this artisanal deli for ten years, and have never had a disappointment. The quality of the ingredients are exceptional, the sandwiches, soups and specials alway creatively constructed and delicious. The gourmet groceries are also amazing. Try the tuna in olive oil, the spanish peppers, Italian pasta, olive oil and vinegar. Their homemade duck confit and smoked duck... More

Again, upon the suggestion of a friend, we decided to check out Old World Deli. What a great, funky spot! They have all sorts of goodies you can buy, including bottles of wine, besides being able to have something to eat in the cafe. The interior is all wood and old brick walls...hip and cool space! I ordered the special,... More

We eat here and buy what ever is fresh cured just about every time we come to Bellingham. This place is amazing, it's a mix of a very relaxed atmosphere and curated cuisine. These guys put they're all into they're ingredients. They are a deli, with cured bacon, linguica, duck confit and all sorts of lovely gourmet items. And then... More

Both of us had it- just a sample for me but main course for spouse. Seemed as if it were more thickener than anything. Mostly bacon and potatos with just a trace of clams, and no clam chowder flavor. My Reuben, on the other hand, was really good. Artisan (an over used word) bread, welled prepared. If we hadn't tested... More
