I love this place! You cannot beat the atmostphere. Go upstairs for a treehouse experience, or eat out on the patio for a wonderful garden feeling. The back corner has a cozy coffeehouse vibe that gets dark and warm in the night. Every piece of furniture, every inch of the walls, every beam and post has been crafted by hand.... More

Loved the zen, layed back atmosphere.. Tranquil and such great food.. All items are fresh, organic and flavorful. Make sure you check the times open 24 hours but close Friday afternoon til Sunday afternoon.. Please walk around inside and out and notice the wonderful touches and inspiring art and messages.. Gotta check out this hidden gem in Vista

Saw good reviews for this place and decided to try it. Its a wonderful place to eat. Atmosphere, service, and food were top notch. EVERYONE on the staff was friendly and helpful with recommendations, ensuring we were happy with our seating, food, etc, w/o being pushy or feeling rushed. The menu is limited but everything was really good. The atmosphere... More

We have been dining at Yellow Deli several times now and it's always been a good time every time. We love the place! It's like the houses in LOTR's Shire where Bilbo Baggins live. The staff are efficient and friendly. You have to try their soup - the chili was good but I was blown away by how tasty the... More

I've been wanting to try this place for a long time and did today since I was in Vista for jury duty. Since we have and hour and a half for lunch and this place is close it worked out fine, this is not a place to rush. They were very busy and I did have to wait about 10... More

I've been visiting the Yellow Deli whenever I come home form college for about five years now. I love that I can get a simple sandwich rather than paying for a bunch of stuff I'm going to ask them to take off anyway. Highlights of this place include their peach iced tea, which is the best I've ever had, and... More

I saw the menu for this place and was excited about trying it out. It was ok but not the amazing that I was expecting. We ordered for Pick Up and my husband said that the building and staff were pretty cool, "Like a hippie joint". lol I had the veggie burger with added Havarti cheese and he had the... More

I want to share this incident so that staff of The Yellow Deli can consider the sequence of events and hopefully treat this as an opportunity to improve. I stumbled upon The Yellow Deli quite by accident. The charming and unique exterior façade drew upon my curiosity to find out what kind of establishment this was. I spoke to the... More

How have I lived in North County for 8 years and this is the first time I've been to the Yellow Deli? I love this joint and highly recommend it. It's very cute and quaint, tucked away from the busy main streets of downtown vista with incredible outdoor seating on a patio and on upper balconies set among lots of... More
