“An excellent short brekkie/lunch stop”
Reviewed 29 July 2012 via mobile

What a wonderful place!!

If you're looking for "posh", don't bother. If you're looking for fabulous value for money and a stunning view of the marina full of the most magnificent vessels, I strongly recommend this place.

Breakfast for me consisted of an egg and bacon crumpet (eggs done how you want) for $3.25. Lunch consisted of one (and I mean one, they are huge!) sandwich from a great selection. The people who run the place are very accommodating and will make up virtually anything. Take-always are popular. There are also soup options. And other "deli" bits.

If you're struggling to park go past it (with it in your right). Turn right at the roundabout just after it and there's loads of free parking.

One of our favourite spots in San Diego.

“An old friend”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

The Channel 70 Productions crew has eaten here about a zillion times. Good food and great boat watching. The parking is terrible, but it's worth it to go hunt a space and walk.

What a great little place,saved us a few times on our recent stay at Humphreys,so handy to pop to for sandwiches,drinks crisps etc. The toasted bacon cheese & tomato is to die for,too big to eat in one go!! Had a variety of sandwiches over our weeks stay & all were perfection.
The owners & people who work there are so friendly & work 7 days a week. They used to live in England & miss dry roasted peanuts so if you go,take them a bag they'll be overjoyed!!

“Best sandwiches to go for boaters”
Reviewed 1 May 2011

Pearson's Deli is our go to spot for all kinds of made to order sandwiches when we are heading out on the boat--often picking up the sandwiches in our dinghy from the fuel dock. Minimal car parking off of Shelter Island. The stuffed jalapeños are tasty, as are the deviled eggs.
