“The best egg sandwiches and the worst coffee”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2013 via mobile

That about sums it up. Go for the food, but skip the coffee. The bacon is top quality, as is the sausage. The prices are fair and everything is made fresh.
Don't mind the locals, the place is a morning hangout for a bunch of townies.

“Not bad.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2013

I've driven by the Notch for years but never even knew what it was. One day I went in to see and realized it was a deli. I ordered a sandwich. It was pretty good. Not very memorable but not bad. A little pricier than most but not ridiculous. I prefer Lora's Deli.

“Great Sandwiches, Great Coffee!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2012

I've been going to the Notch since 1977 & have never been disappointed. Frank Salvatore & staff always do a great job of taking care of their customers with a personal touch & always great food & coffee. This is a quintessential community store turned deli that is a must try for visitors & residents alike.

“There's nothing like the Notch!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2012

Dropped in with an old friend to say hi to Frankie (Salvatore), who runs the joint. We knew his father and his grandfather and used to ride our horses to the store to buy soda and candy back in the day.

Frankie was there as were a couple of other guys we knew, playing cribbage in the back.

Frank makes a mean sandwich, anything you like, and they do catering as well!

Next to the old cash register, you'll see a photo of a group of kids in sixth grade. I'm in the first row, second one in from the right. :) Frankie's in there, too.

Breakfast and sandwiches are outstanding. Fresh and tasty. Nice people who know what they are doing. Great traditional place unlike any other in the area.
