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 fit for a King on King Street!

It was ok the meat just wasn't that nice. My husband had the pulled pork sandwich and it was amazing! We washed it all down with... read more

A high point during our trip to Canada. We had been to their dinner restaurant (in the same place) a few days earlier. That is great too, it's called "Italian by Night". So we tried lunch at Urban Deli. Same staff and same great food. Their menu is awesome and we had the Chicken Schnitzel and Big Beef Bad Boy... More

My wife and I were looking for a nice but affordable restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. After doing some research online I decided that Urban Deli may fit what we needed. When we arrived every seat in the place was full, however they do a great job turning over seats to make sure you don't wait long; we were seated... More

Chicken salad sandwich was incredible as was the best cole slaw ever. Service bright, friendly and cheerful.

Thank you for your review on the Urban Deli and particularly our chicken salad sandwich and coleslaw. The chicken salad sandwich is new to our menu and like most menu items we create it, test it over and over again, tweak it and the cycle repeats itself until someone pipes up and says that they cannot possibly eat another chicken...

Amazing sandwiches! Great service! But....tiny tiny dining room. Almost always full and feels crowded but the food is worth it. Not cheap but will be satisfied after meal.

Not knowing much about this restaurant, my partner and I went in for lunch. We actually grabbed the last 2 spots available. They seem to be busy with reservations. And I can see why! The food was so delicious and was very well priced, between $11 and $14 if my mind serves me right. Definitely going there again :)

Amazing staff, it's alway busy at lunch time, but staff always find a table quickly. Reservation recommended. All of the sandwiches are done with fresh homemade bread and made with the freshest local ingredients. Many different sides to chose from including soup. Homemade brewed flavoured ice tea very tasty and not sweet.

Finished off an excellent family vacation with lunch. Arrived at approximately 1:45 pm and ALL the booths were still full! Our family of 5 grabbed one end of the communal table and our 4 year-old got busy with colouring books. Excellent, pleasant and quick service. We had: - Mac&cheese for the kiddo and she loved it.

We were in Saint John for lacrosse and happened upon the UD for lunch. Ordered the chowder which was hot and yummy. Lunch menu varied with sandwiches, burgers, and the like. Desserts looked amazing so we decided to return for dinner. After 5 it transforms into an Italian eatery with dining fare equal to a Greenwich Village bistro. We had... More
