Amazing!

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

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

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.

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.
