I have passed by this little shop dozens of times, and to be honest, the outside never really grabbed me as a place to go! However, today, I was looking for a simple sandwich and boy, did this place deliver. As I stated earlier, the outside is nothing special, but step inside and it is very clean and inviting. Simple...

This place is just your typical deli from yesteryear... I love it! When you have a craving for a deli sandwich, don't you dare support horsemeat serving places like Subway... support something local, spend an extra $1, and get extremely high quality meats and cheeses...

Wide selection of true Eastcoast Deli style meats & sandwiches! A bit pricey-er than Subway, but WAYYYYY worth it! Family owned & operated, so the pride in service & the food is evident. We will return often as my kids LOVE this place!

We waited a bit in the wrong place with no one correcting us. That's my only small complaint, otherwise the people were super friendly and the sandwiches delicious. The Doughboy is the most popular for a reason! The Iced Sun Tea was definitely a highlight as was seeing all the history in the pictures and signs displayed.

I really enjoy a place that has character and uniqueness; Cheese and Stuff is just that place. A family-owned shop that has been around for about 60 years (30+ years under the current family), Cheese and Stuff makes sandwiches like I would imagine that "mom used to make." I had the Doughboy (their most popular sandwich) - turkey, bacon, avacado,... More
