We stopped here on our way down the coast, we had trouble finding it on our gps, but worth the find! Expected some tables inside to sit, but it's just a small order and go deli. We grabbed some great deli sandwiches and took down the street to Carmelita park where we picnic-ed!

These folks make great food for eat in, and pack it for travel. We had a catered party with a large variety of treats along with sandwiches, drinks, and even good quality champagne and wines. They delivered on time and provided setups (plates, plasticware, tablecloths, etc.). We had fine quality in everything we ordered. That prompted us to order box... More

I found this place thru Tripadvisor when we were leaving Carmel for the weekend and heading back home, but first going on the 17 mile drive and having a picnic at Spanish Bay. We walked in early on Sunday morning (11AM) so no one was there. We were greeted immediately by the employees. They have a whole selection of pre... More

My family and I went here to eat breakfast, but alas, no place to sit. So we ended up eating down the block. I didn't order anything but coffee at the second place, and held out to go back to 5th Avenue on my way back to the hotel. Good decision! The breakfast taco I had at 5th Avenue was... More

This place was great. Carmel can be expensive. Fortunately places like this can provide an economical meal. We visited all the delis in Carmel and this was our favorite. The staff was very helpful and friendly to assist with our selections. The selection was great from fresh made sandwiches and tamales to soups. If your quick you can park right... More

Everything you would expect from a quality well run deli. Nice people, good selection, great prices. Just a couple of tips. You can order half sandwiches if you like and ,rare in carmel, there is a small picnic area with a few tables on the corner of Dolores and 5th that the public can use. It is a short 1/2... More

Best egg salad, love their boxed lunches. Plus you can get a bottle of Rombauer there too...picnic baskets, or make your own fresh tacos. Staff is friendly and fast. A great value all around.

Wish we had of found this small take away deli sooner during on our stay in Carmel. Great sandwiches, salads, etc. Box lunches too (we didn't do this but what a good idea). Staff were great and the deli seemed to be a local favorite.
