“Great Concept but Average Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

Love the decor, the musicians that play on Wednesday night, and the menu's concept. The only problem is that there is not enough meat on the sandwiches so one is eating a lot of bread. The vegetarian sandwich with the daily spread is really just bread and a little bit of vegetable, but not enough to feel worth the price for a $9 sandwich! Applaud the crudite served as an option for chips and just wish we could better support the restaurant.

“Worth a stop, any time of the day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

Only got one item from the Yellow Deli, but it was delectable.
Ordered the Deli Rose: roast beef and smoked meat, hot pepper Monterrey jack cheese, onion, tomato, and their "own special sauce" on an onion roll.
It was delicious. Plump, juicy. The bread was amazing.
The place is charming. Beautiful wooden interior, friendly folk.
There was an "odd" feel about the place, which made more sense after reading up on the religious folks that run it ... but if the food is good, who cares?
Open 24/5 (24 hours, Monday morning - Friday afternoon, which is unconventional, but smart!), this is well worth a stop anytime you are on the road or visiting Chilliwack. Chances are good that they'll be open no matter what time you are travelling!

Just about decided not to stop when going through town but glad we did. Ingredients very fresh and the décor is interesting. We just had sandwiches but they were excellent.

“Unique (in a good way) lunch experience”

Folky atmosphere, rustic setting, funky decor and very friendly staff. Food is simple and organic. Simple. Good. Try it!
