"Great Sandwiches!"

This is a great little deli with an ocean view. I had the tuna sandwich and it was one of the best I've ever had! My friend had the club sandwich, it looked delicious and he said it was very tasty! I noticed that they had several different soups on the menu, I'm looking forward to returning and... read more

I have been going here for breakfast for the last 4 years and after my latest experience I might not return. The food is always OK. The French Toast is good and I love the bacon, However, it is the owner, who takes your order, that sours your experience. He is unfriendly and the breakfast order "system" is always confusing....

They had a great variety of food on the menu to choose from. Huge portions, could easily be slit between two people. Fresh made food. Also a little store.

We come to Rio Del Mar Beach frequently during the year from the Sacramento area for our Ocean fixes. Make sure you try the Pixie Deli. Everything is great!

We stayed around the corner and found Pixie to be a great resource for breakfast and lunch. Super large breakfast burritos made to order, sandwiches and large selection of drinks and outdoor seating under umbrellas. The chickens for later were cooking on an outdoor spit, a few feet from the tables. An unpretentious place to get a quick bite, just... More

They make the BEST shrimp salad sandwich on fresh sourdough I've ever tasted! The BBQ chicken and Tri Tips are great too. Love to eat outside with our dog and listen to the waves sounding on the beach!

Had the tri tip and club. OK. Not tons of flavor but filled the stomach. Chips and drinks all extra.

Me the wife and kids usually spend several weekends and sometimes a week at a time each year in Rio Del Mar. Since they closed one of my favorite spots (Aptos Pizza) I come to the pixie deli about twice as much as I used to which is still several times a trip. The family favorites are the quesadillas the...

It is a deli near the beach. The food is decent and quick We had chicken and a salad. It has patio dining. They have a ice cream counter inside, drinks, sandwiches, some hot food, quite a nice choice. The cashier was a bit abrupt. All and all I would go back.

Really want to like Pixie Deli, as it is the only place to get breakfast at the Rio del Mar beach in Aptos. But had a terrible experience Sunday regarding extremely rude service. This happened to us once before from an employee a year or two ago. But we came back; and this time it was the owner. I felt... More
