Never heard of Cecil's but I was told it was a must do... I arrived during lunch hour and it was packed... We were sat almost immediately given menus and our drink order was taken. Within a minute drinks were on the table and our order was taken. We both had a Reuben with slaw, again within minutes lunch arrived.... More

Another great overindulgence at Cecil's! We simply can't get enough of this place. What a gem we have right in our midst. It's as close to a NY Deli that you can get in MN. Just good, huge food with knowledgable, fun staff. It's a no-nonsense place and we LOVE LOVE LOVE tucking into a big fat, juicy Reuben (or... More

I have been here many times over the years but I have to admit my wife and I were a little disappointed last week. Both of us had the Reuben sandwich and both of us noticed there was less Pastrami and corned beef and more sauerkraut than all of our past visits. Service was slower than normal (it wasn't busy...

We had the Ruben sandwich very good. Great potato salad. Friendly waiter. We would return to Cecil's again.

This place is awesome! We were hiking in Minnehaha Park, checked out the falls and walked up and down the creek to the Mississippi River. We worked up an appetite and decided to check out restaurants nearby online. This deli was recommended and did not disappoint. I had the Sasha which was soooo good. The better half had a Reuben...

I enjoyed the classic Ruben sandwich. Very good, right mix of corned beef and sauerkraut. A little greasy from butter on the great rye bread but overall tasty. Good atmosphere. A lot of neighborhood people which makes it a good place to visit.

Nestled into my little neighborhood in the Mac-Groveland area of St Paul, there is a historic Deli named Cecil's. This place is fantastic. Forget about the wonderful little deli shop that greets you as you walk in. Or should I say "try" to forget about it... as you make your way through to the restaurant. The food here is outstanding.... More

We went to Cecil's for a late Sunday breakfast, which was great - eggs, bacon, toast/pancakes for $6 - you can't go wrong. The coffee was also very good. Had we left at that point, I would have given this deli a higher rating. We decided to order sandwiches to take on our flight later that afternoon, and that is... More

This is a terrific location for a disappearing type of restaurant - the Jewish based delicatessen! The soups are great especially the soup of the day! Portions are plentiful and the cole slaw ( a side dish) and sandwiches are very memorable. Excellent service from Aron, the proprietor, who takes a genuine interest and concern in his customers. If one... More
