Great menu and staff

Brunch was yummy, staff was very friendly and we got excellent service. Exactly the kind of neighborhood place you look for when traveling.

The food is really good and the meats are organic or free of hormones, whenever possible. They sell and serve the best bagels outside NY. The service is terrific, and it's easy to find parking nearby. The Matzoh Ball Soup is wonderful.

I went to Saul's for breakfast this morning. I had their deli hash with a soft poached egg on it, it was fabulous. My daughter had their french toast which looked really good and came with Maple syrup. The last time i was here was over a year ago and it is just as good as before. Always worth having... More

Been going to Saul's whenever we are in Berkeley area. It ok for Matzo Ball Soup and meat sandwiches but can't compare to Montreal or NY deli fare.

Sauls was a wonderful experience, so much so that we went back a second timwe during our 4 day stay. It is everything I missed from the old neighborhood in NY, with a California twist: fresh locally sources ingredients, farm to table! The staff was absolutely wonderful as was the food. Highly recommend for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

A friend had told me about Saul's so I had to try it out. I ordered the Half and Half, which consisted of corned beef and pastrami. Having tried many east coast delis, I had high expectations. Imagine my surprise when I brought it home and saw how small it was compared to what I'm used to. Saul's prices were... More

Great authentic Jewish fare, and the baked goods couldn't be beat - the black-and-white cookie was a major Seinfeld nostalgia trip, and the hamentashen and rugelach were fantastic. The lunch was great, too, but for me it's always about the baked goods!

Good food. Service a bit slow and a tad pricey for a deli. Pancakes were best dish on the table. Egg salad sandwich was tasty, too. Turkey schmurkey was a bit dry. Overall, good quality food but can be steep for a family. Yummy coffee

Had their soup for lunch and dinner, several days in a row. The matzoh Balls are perfectly done. One night we had fried trout...beautifully served. Highly recommend, this is the best deli in the San Francisco Bay Area.
