Nothing special

Place bills itself as NYC style deli, but serves up Boars Head meats. They are decent but nothing special. Can get Boars Head at Stop& Shop. Overall, very average.

We walked up and down the main street in Lexington looking for a quick lunch, to eat on the Green. Settled on the Avenue Deli, ordered our food, service was so quick, and the prices were very reasonable. They also had gluten free bread available. The sandwiches were also grilled a la Panini, which was a pleasant surprise. Stop there:)

Came here with my husband and parents after visiting the Minute Man Park. It's mostly just deli meat, and I'm pregnant so I had to get a hot sandwich. My mom and I both got the Ruben which was delicious. Plenty of meat and not too much Russian dressing. My husband got the Paul Revere which he also enjoyed and... More

Peet's has reliably good coffee, friendly staff and tasty baked goods. The atmosphere is relaxed, there's free WiFi and children are welcome. I've been going to Peet's since it opened in town. Peet's also has some really nice teas. It may be the only place I've been where iced coffee or tea doesn't taste watered down. Peet's frozen beverages have... More

You can't go wrong with a place that offers avocado on every sandwich. Boars Head meats, Mexican Coke in the fridge. I'm particularly fond of the Rachel. And I've never had anything but service with a big smile. Nice, nice team.

Best sandwich, large and the wheat bread is wonderful. Fresh and quality ingredients. I go often and have never been disappointed. The staff is very friendly and will make any combination you suggest.

Very good deli with a wide variety of offerings. Some of the sandwiches are amongst the better things that you can get in Town. Food and service are always good.
