Urban Deli lives up to it's tag line of 'old fashioned. Slightly sophisticated'. We love to put a spin on some favourite old fashioned dishes like our popular meatloaf sandwich. We have the deli classics like Montreal Smoked Meat and our popular Reuben Sandwich. Urban Deli was featured on the Canadian Food Network's 'You Gotta Eat Here' featuring our Muffuletta & Uptown Big Beef Bad Boy sandwiches and our famous lemon sour cream pie, which has travelled as far as Alberta & Ontario. We also offer catering for lunch or private functions. If you are craving something other than deli, see Italian by Night for our authentic Tuscan Style Italian menu for dinner.

Lunch twice in the same week!

I went here for lunch twice in the same week! Food is excellent and the atmosphere is cozy. The staff are friendly and will make sure you have what you need. Ask about the soup of the day.

I love the Urban Deli. The food is delicious and it's all at a great price!! The fries are to die for and worth the trip alone. It's a cozy spot with an open kitchen.

Tried out the Urban Deli over the holidays! We both ordered the Uptown Big Beef Bad Boy sandwich with au jus and it was AMAZING!! Everyone needs to try one of these! Great service, really cool atmosphere and very reasonable prices! Will definitely be going back next time we're in the city!

Had a walk by with my husband and we decided to go in. We got a quiet table near the back and in spite of my hangryness the waitresses continued to smile as they walked bustling past and were pleasant and cheerful. They were more than accommodating to my indecisiveness about how much wine I was going to drink. They... More

I've tried two of the new sandwiches the Banh mi and the Cuban. They fit great with the menu and you will not be disappointed. The quality, atmosphere and price can't be beat.

On a monthly basis 12 of us gather for a meeting here in Saint John. We have folks from around NB and NS attend. Today we had a lunch prepared by these talented folks and what a hit. There were "Oh Wows" and then everyone dug in. The sandwiches were fresh and plentiful so much so we had plenty to... More

My favourite fries ever!! There are so many wonderful choices, all are favourites and it's hard to choose... from standards like the meat loaf sandwich, rueben, pulled pork & slaw or seared tuna with a romaine salad to the muffaletta ( one of the house specialities, a New Orleans style sandwich loaded with smoked turkey, corned beef and layers of...

I had read many review that it was good for lunch when it is a deli but I went for dinner and this place was so full of itself. They did not want to seat us unless we promised to take less than an hour. That was fine because it was so stuffy that we didn't want to stay a... More
