Not your average deli

Above average deli. Make their own soups and sandwiches. Nice ambiance away from main street Vista. Laid back atmosphere

Drove through downtown looking for a bit to eat. Initially drove past The Yellow Deli but ended up coming back. What a good choice we made. The Cranberry and Cashew salad was fantastic as was the Reuben Sandwich.

I found this place on Yelp right after it was built. I read the story about the Twelve Tribes and thought it would be kind of cool to check out the place. The quality of the construction of the Vista Yellow Deli is really pretty spectacular. As an amateur woodworker and metalsmith I really appreciated the amount of detail and... More

Loved the unique atmosphere, very enchanting. Most of us ordered salads and sandwiches. Everyone's lunch was absolutely delicious. The atmosphere as well as the staff are very calming. We will definitely be back.

This is a lovely vine covered rambling building. There is so much to look at on the inside I didn't know where to look first. Many tables are heavy thick wood that shines. We sat outside upstairs on a lovely balcony. The soup is great and so was the turkey/provolone sandwich we shared. The servings are generous and the service... More

This is a great location to go and hang out on the patio. The even better part is there food is great. My favorite is the chili and my wife loves the yogurt.

The building which houses this restaurant is hokey (it must have been lovely in its day), the staff is dressed in folksy attire, and the menu is broad. The staff with headset microphones was very busy announcing dinner guests. We were seated promptly and ushered to a lift to access the upstairs dining rooms, rather than climbing stairs. There's a...
