This is what a neighborhood deli used to be like. The staff remembers you, what you like and don't, and what you may want to try. Locals to celebs here. The owner, Josh, is talented, friendly and genuinely happy to see you. The different types of corn beef hash are terrific. The fresh juices are made to order. Conversations about things that matter are everywhere: local politics to global warming. Finish with a walk on the beach! Who needs anything else?

This place is amazing! Very fresh unlike so many deli's. thoughtful menu, nova is the best anywhere. They make their own bagels, they make their own everything! Do yourself a favor...go early!

A friend recommended Josh's, so we went for a visit and had a wonderful meal. Josh's is small, almost a boutique deli, if you will, but the food is worth the trip. There are celebrity photos on the wall, all with fake greetings and signatures (from deceased persons such as Milton Berle and the Marx Brothers; Josh's has not been open that long), which added a touch of humor to the surroundings. I had a tasty matzo ball soup with a savory broth, not like the dull or overly salty broths one gets at diners. The matzo ball, more dense than fluffy, was very tasty, with fresh herbs. My corned beef sandwich was heavenly, buttery soft. My companions had pastrami, similarly buttery and perfectly briny, and a homemade chicken salad that was a big hit. And, Josh's serves that great beverage staple, Dr. Brown's soda, which made the meal complete.

Josh was at the grill, very friendly. Service was great, though it seems, I got there just as the lunch crowd had left. Had a corned beef and pastrami sandwich and a coconut and carrot cake for desert. The meat was delicious, but the bread seemed like it came out of a bag in the bread aisle in Publix. I saw a bagel go to another guest that looked wonderful, I'm thinking "this is gonna be great!". The bread was a disappointment. The cake was also dry, the flavor was delicious.

For locals maybe this is the place for pastrami, etc but it is just OK.
Bread was not fressh, corned beef was grossly fatty. Potato pancake disappointing especially reheated in microwave. Even the chocolate egg cream only resembled a Yoo-hoo with bubbles.
