We had a party of three, when you walk in the first thing you see is a wonderful pastry case, everything looked delicious. The meals we had were adequate, menu was very large and I think that is part of the problem. When you have so many items on a menu something suffers. I wouldn't say anything was bad but... More

By far the best deli going. The food was excellent, the pickles they provide are terrific. The desserts are huge, and not the price. Overall our best experience in Palm Springs. Service & food can't say enough about. Highly recommend...wish they were here in the East Coast!

... a good deli... all the sandwiches one would expect and average prices for a resort area. Restaurant is large and seating is comfortable... Large menu, open early for breakfast.

Their new summer menu discount has about 6-8 entrees which includes soup (very good) or salad (large and excellent) as well as a beverage - $11.99++. I had brisket with mashed potatoes and steamed veggies; friend had chicken Alfredo fettuccini. Although both the meat and potato portions were quite large, the brisket (cut wafer thin) was absolutely tasteless. The pasta... More

We frequented this place established by New Yorkers who fled back to New York after they built up a very fine deli style restaurant superior to Sherman's Deli. But now it's changed with cutbacks in food quality and portions but not prices. We were confirmed in our suspicions only AFTER our last visit by a local.

We've become regulars to this awesome foodie place. Yes it is almost like being in Manhattan on the Lower Eastside and sitting in one of the old time places. Sandwiches you have to use 2 hands to eat. Make sure you ask for the pickles. Breakfast that is almost too much to eat (and the problem with this could be... More

We thought we would be going to a great place to eat. WRONG!!! No atmosphere. Waiter was uncaring and even rude. We were overcharged a couple of dollars. Did not get what we ordered. Not a place I would go again....
