Good value

Always enjoy stopping by for lunch on the commute. Good eats when you have time before the ferry. Their default tipping % is unreasonable for their service model. Seems like a awkward disconnect.

Servings were substantial, price excellent value and a truly fun experience. It's too bad they are not open for dinner. But GO!! Lunch is great!! this is a self-service location. Order at the counter and wait for dish. Lots of tables and chairs are available but no sit-down waiter/waitress service.

I've been going to the deli for 25+ years and it's as amazing today as it was in the beginning. I love the food and I love the atmosphere. It's always busy because of its popularity but well worth the wait. A must go to place in Anacortes. Put it on your list!!

I have the Everything Bagel and Cream Cheese often. The Mrs. enjoys the quiche! For lunch they have many varieties of sandwiches, but I enjoy the San Juan Salad.

After reading the reviews, I had to try this place. I was not let down. Service is fast and friendly, and the sandwiches are wonderful. It can be a little crowed between 12 and 1 (What would you expect for the best place in Anacortes?). So arriving after one 1 PM might be a good idea. The take out food... More

Busy little deli, with fab décor, felt like a step back in time. The sandwiches were yummy and fresh. We really enjoyed it here. Great casual dining.

This deli has nothing to envy delis in NY or San Francisco, the good is fresh, well prepared and delicious. Love their pickles! Very reasonable prices and good service.

This town-defining deli is incredibly dependable, with generous portions, fresh ingredients, wide variety and a welcoming atmosphere. From 3-piece suits to painting clothes, everyone fits in here. Some thought the quality might slip when the owner became the mayor, but not so. All time favorite.

Best place to grab lunch, always busy but you don't have to wait long for your food. Sweet tooth? No problem, really good desserts as well and good prices!
