We tried this deli on a recent vacation, and went back multiple times during our trip. The food is delicious and they have a huge selection. Gluten free bread is available for all sandwiches, and I don't believe they charged extra for it. The staff is amazingly helpful and friendly. I had the... read more

In looking for lunch at the beach or park in a break from our tasting we checked out 5th Avenue Deli for supplies. Here we found more than enough: custom made-to-order sandwiches, a taco bar, salads and the usual necessities like candy, chips...and wine. We were given directions to a local park where we quietly picnicked, the scene complete when... More

So happy I discovered this little local gem which seemed to be a family business. It was my take out breakfast/lunch spot while I stayed in Carmel. They make delicious burritos (and many other things) on the spot fresh so you can customize your order how you like. I took it to go and ate on the beach. They make... More

A crowded and popular deli, 5th Ave Deli has an unexpected wealth of offerings. Sandwiches are available along with hot soup, Mexican food and other hot offerings. There is no seating but it is very popular with locals and workers downtown Carmel. They are very accomodating to special requests. They also offer a decent range of baked offerings. It's also...

There was a short wait to order, but once you order, the sandwich is ready relative quickly. We ordered sandwiches (tri tip and turkey) for a hike at Garland Ranch. Both were good and filling.

We have stuck our heads in here at least a dozen times but finally got around to trying it this last trip. Terrific food. The salads I picked were great as was the sandwhich. My wife got a salad and dolmas which were equally yummy. The also have a taco bar, quiches, 3 kinds of soup daily, and many beverage... More

My husband and I walked to the Deli from our hotel to buy a picnic lunch for our outing to Point Lobos State Park. The service was great and the lunch was delicious. They give you several combinations to choose from our you can order separately. We order the lunch box. Great deli.
