Loved this place for the great, healthy food, interesting decor, fun drawings, and server who was willing to answer my questions without getting defensive. Loved the fact that I got a sample of their juices before deciding which to order. Everything is healthy and tasty and just the right portions. Parking is a little problem, but just look for the...

Great salads here...I usually substitute a dinner roll for the sweet raisin bread...this time they said I couldn't do it without an extra charge. What? Seems the roll is less expensive than the bread anyway. Phooey!

We travel to Oneonta frequently as my daughter is in college there. Always wanted to try the Yellow Deli however they are closed from 3PM Friday to noon on Sunday each week to honor their day of Sabbath. Have never been able to try the place as we are usually there on Saturdays. Heard and read about a “cult” type... More

We stopped in off I-88 on our way east. It was a bit like walking back into my late 1960's college daze...err days. That notwithstanding, the people were friendly and welcoming. The room was warm, comfortable,and interestingly decorated. Oh, and the food was excellent. The sandwiches were fresh, warm, and well prepared, the breads delicious. We'll certainly take the opportunity... More

I've had eaten many time at Yellow Deli in Oneonta, NY and honestly this is the best place I've even been. They have large choice of food and everything from appetizers to deserts is SO delicious. Veggie Burger and other sandwiches are simply mouthwatering. This is a fantastic place with a good service and reasonable prices. Don't miss a chance... More

A step back into the 60s with good food. It was a little hectic on our visit and service was disorganized and slow, but we didn't find that reason not to return in the future. I suggest giving them a spin for yourself if you aren't in a hurry.

First, it’s like a trip to a museum, with hand decorated furniture everywhere. And the food is healthy, tasty, and fairly priced. I personally like Reuben Sandwiches when I eat out, and these are almost the best ever. And lastly, the work crew is interesting and friendly....always!

We were drawn into this place by the smell of warm soup wafting down the street. Once inside, the Middle Earth decor and friendly, baggy-clad workers immediately gave it away as an outpost of the Twelve Tribes, an alternative religious community with a mixed history. The food was warm and nourishing, we had the lentil soup which was as tasty... More
