This place has it all ! Great sandwiches, hot food, tamales, salads, craft beers, reasonably priced wines, toiletries, etc. We stopped here to get a picnic for the beach, got a roast beef sandwich, chips, I nice bottle of Chardonnay, cucumber salad, tamales, and some fruit. Fast and friendly!

Stopped in the deli for some quick souvenirs and noticed that if you forgot anything along your trip in Big Sur they sure got it!

My husband and I were going for hike @Julia Pheifer Burns State Park and hadn't eaten lunch. We were looking for a chicken salad sandwich and poked our way into the Big Sur Deli. Unfortunately, no chicken salad on menu-so we ordered a roasted turkey to split. I got busy looking @t-shirts in the back (agree with other reviewer that... More

We stopped in to grab a bite on our drive down Hwy 1. We wanted to get something to go, so we thought this to be a good option. The handmade deli sandwiches only come in one size. LARGE. I wasn't up to a whole sandwich and my husband wasn't up to sharing. I couldn't see paying all that money... More

A fun store with lots of interesting and unique items. Great beer selection at this little store! They had micro brews and Olympia tall boys. There was a great selection of little fun items to give as gifts of to take home for yourself, not too touristy.

We stopped in Big Sur Deli to pick up beer, chips and sandwiches for our hike in Pfeiffer Burns. Perfect lunch after a long hike.

We swung by here to grab a sandwich on our day of exploring the various parks and sites around Big Sur. They have a pretty standard deli menu, along with plenty of hot sandwich options. There was also quite a few other items you could get from the cooler, both American and Mexican influenced. Our sandwiches were both tasty and... More

The sandwiches are expensive but quite big and filling. The deli itself is located conveniently in Big Sur. The avocado and cheese sandwich was very delicious.
