Restaurant needs remodeling, still eighties colors and deco. Food is very good and price is excellent, with an awesome bakery.

Their food and menu are old fashioned for sure! Some of the things sounded a little odd, but everything was tasty. I loved getting breakfast here and loved their bakery!

This is the best bakery and deli by far in the OC. So many wonderful desserts, it's difficult to select just one -- so don't. Buy one of everything. I had been missing my potato pancakes and wasn't disappointed. Sour cream and applesauce one day and eggs and gravy cooked with sausage the following morning. Oh yum. And if you... More

Used to eat here when I worked in the area years ago. Was in the neighborhood and the husband was craving pastrami. We Google'd it and it was still here so stopped in for a Ruebin. Still good. Actually awesome. Also picked up a slice of cheesecake to go. Highly recommend!

While visiting friends who live in the neighborhood, they took me here since it is one of their favorites. The service was very good and the food hot and excellent. I had the corned beef and cabbage my friend had corned beef on rye. Both were wonderful. The bakery has tons of fabulous items to choose from. Parking was relatively... More

I moved away from being near this restaurant and miss it. I have heard good and not so good things over the years, but when I went recently it was as I remembered it. I sat in the bar area on a midweek day right around lunch time. There was a wait, and there usually is, so be prepared for... More

The bakery is pricy but excellent. Same for the deli. The restaurant has hundreds of items to choose from, some are old fashioned goodies like stuffed cabbage, but the quality is OK, not outstanding.

I lived in the area 25 years ago, and the Katella Deli was always a favorite. When I was in Cypress on business, I couldn't wait to have one of their corned beef on ryes! Still the best!! Topped it off with a slice of cheese cake. So happy that the quality has remained after al these years!

Today, I was working on the base and decided to have lunch at Katella located in Los Alamitos, CA. I ordered the Photo Finish (turkey breast) and fruit. I wanted something light since I had to go back to work. Anyway, this was one of the best deli sandwiches Ive ever had. The alfalfa sprouts added a freshness to the... More

This restaurant has outdoor tables, of which we took advantage of, but they are self-serve. Full-service is given for the indoor restaurant. We ordered lox, bagels and cream cheese at around $11 per sandwich. The bagels came loaded with cream cheese and a reasonable portion of lox. I ordered mine with low fat cream cheese which they had. The lox... More
