We were seated immediately and given the low-down on how their system works. (I think she sensed it was our first visit.) We were given menus and told to take them to the order counter when we had decided what we wanted. Very appealing choices on the lunch menu. Both uf us felt in the mood for BLTs which came... More

We found ourselves passing through the quaint little town of Sonora right at lunchtime. We came upon the Lighthouse Deli on S. Washington Street, right in the middle of town. At first look, it didn't seem like anything out of the ordinary for a little cafe, but once inside we felt like locals! Everyone there was so friendly and accommodating.... More

My husband and I have lived in Sonora for a year now. We finally decided to try this deli because one of his coworkers recommended it. Let me just say we were so impressed with everything! The potato salad was the best I've ever had, the battered fries were delicious and our sandwiches were mouthwatering! I recommend the poblano chicken... More

We stopped off at the deli for breakfast. All of us (party of five) were happy with the choice, quality and quantity of the breakfasts.

Recently stopped at this deli with our granddaughters for lunch. We were on our way to Columbia and since we had previously had eaten here we chose it again. That definitely was the right decision. Both times we have been here the food and service were outstanding. The girls loved their food. The staff is so friendly always interacting with... More

I like the fact that they had their menu online. The restaurant is easy to find and is quite cute. I had the roasted chicken poblano sandwich and it was heavenly. Even better was the potato salad! The service was great. I went on a Friday after the lunch rush but it was still busy. Parking was a little tricky... More
