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.

Great T shirts, good deli options, it is pricey but worth it. The staff is friendly and efficient. We were happy to have this deli accessible for snacks and lunch as we hiked a great deal.

My wife and I stopped in here for a couple of chicken burritos on our way driving down the coast. The man who made the burritos and the woman at the register were so nice. These were the best burritos we ever had, no question. These burritos were 10 times better, and a fraction of the price than our dinner... More

They cleared the low bar - we asked for a fresh version of a sandwich in the display, and they told us the sandwich we were looking at was fine - that it had been freshly made 8 hours ago. That kind of sums up the food deal for you! Good selection of sodas, waters and beers- or emergency items... More

Cooked in house--just like Thanksgiving leftovers! A wonderful sandwich, large enough to share. Good bread selection. Made to order and packed to take to the park for a picnic. No seating that I saw--go to a park!
