Europa is an old fashioned Hof Brau that still roasts its own meats every day, carves it in front of you, and layers the meat thick on your chosen bread. I have only been here for a take-out sandwiches as the atmosphere of dine-in is rather dull, dark, and dreary. My favorite carved sandwich is the roasted turkey, dark meat... More

The Orinda Hofbrau gets high marks as a deli mainly because of a lack of competition although it isn’t bad. To be sure, the sandwiches are good and the variety offered in the steam table is excellent. You get a lot for your money and you can definitely “fill the hole” when you’re hungry. My main gripe, though, is that... More

These guys make the best sandwiches, etc, and are especially known for their rubens. Very able and friendly owners, with many excellent deli choices.

Ever crave a thanksgiving dinner in July or a truly excellent Ruben or freshly carved open face roast beef sandwich but don't have the makings? Then this is the place for you! The staff is very nice and the meat offering are fresh. Skip the canned vegetables and ask for double potatoes with gravy; you won't be disappointed!

2 slices of roast beef, mashed potatoes, over cooked green beans, bread & butter was very pedestrian in flavor. For the price, a couple buck more and you could be having a white table cloth steak...

Traditional hofbrau deli with great tasting food. Best informal place to get an inexpensive roast beef plate (or sandwich), Pumpkin pie and rice pudding desserts were especially delicious. Family-owned operation creates a warm service-oriented and friendly atmosphere. Plenty of seating. Indoor play structure for the kids. Easy to reach from the Oakland-Piedmont Hills - just drive through the Caldecott tunnel... More

This is a typical hofbrau, which is increasingly rare. Each day they have specials, but I usually get the sliced turkey, which is fresh and most delicious. The prices are quite low for such high quality.

If you are interested in having a good hearthy traditional turkey dinner, a very good reuben sandwich, consistent corned beef...and all the trimmings....this is your place! The dining area is nothing fancy, but there's plenty of space to enjoy a casual lunch or dinner at this family friendly restaurant. Bring an appetite. Good news....this not a budget buster!
