Freshly sliced deli sandwiches

Great, fresh deli sandwiches. All the varieties we've tried have been excellent. Unfortunately the service was very slow. We waited 45 minutes for 5 sandwiches. The place was not that busy. Granted they freshly slice their meats for each order, but 45 minutes was ridiculous. Despite the wait, the... read more

L'Chayim is unfortunately closed until next spring due to a fire. They have two locations - the original in Beulah and a second in Frankfort. Great Bagels and sandwiches and cookies and pastries. Look forward to their reopening!

We have always enjoyed the true deli style sandwiches here. On this visit (and we did come mid-afternoon) they were out of some key ingredients so we couldn't order our favorites. The surprise was in watching the girls behind the counter make the sandwiches. They did not wear food service gloves. They were handling all the foods bare-handed. Then they... More

We were staying on Crystal Lake in a cottage and could easily walk in to town for breakfast. We got our bagels to go and walked a block down to the beach at sat at the tables there to eat breakfast with a view. Friendly service here at this bakery/deli. The selection was average, though if you don't go early... More

The best peppered roast beef. The swiss cheese is not to be believed as it is out of this world.. Wide range of sandwiches, wide enough to appeal to anyone's tastes. Get there early as they might run out of bread.

The bagels are terrific, the vibe is good, the spreads are delicious, and I am just really glad that the place exists. Grab a sandwich and head down to the Crystal Lake Beach. It's the best!

If you want to know the guy doing the preparation this is the place. They do a great job! Try there made from scratch in house bagels. Any sandwich will go great on them. ; )

We eat often at L'Chayim my wife and enjoy the atmosphere and the food quality we get there. We appreciate the fact that the fact that we can get quality cheeses and meats and not have to go to Traverse City to get it. The Bagels they bake are the best ever to say the least!
