New world food!

We loved this place so much we came back again. They were very accommodating to our group of 10. The sandwiches are great. We had a delicious meat and cheese tray.

We had lunch here several times and really enjoyed it. The soups and sandwiches are delicious. The atmosphere is very laid back and fun. When next in Bellingham, we look forward to lunch here again.

If you're in the Bellingham area or if you live here and have never tried The Old World Deli, do yourself a favor and put it on your 'must to do' list! Have tried several different sandwiches, salads, cold cut selection, wines, and great selection off international hard to find favorites....it is definitely worth searching out! Easy to find in...

Several times I have called upon Old World Deli for business meals to feed my employees and they have always delivered awesome results. Feeding 7-100+ employees at lunchtime is no small task. OWD offers tasty and creative sandwiches (I have ordered off the board with palate pleasing results), and yet is creative with our special requests. The store-front is quaint... More

I went here for lunch, based on Trip Advisor reviews. My friend and I each had the reuben, which was delicious. We each had an iced tea. The bill was $27, which seems a bit steep. Parking is on the street, if you're lucky. There really is no service, and no ambience. I walk with a cane, and when I... More

We just left OWD, after having a Ruben and green salad. Delicious sandwiches that were large enough to bring home half for lunch tomorrow. We also wanted a glass of wine each. The helpful manager suggested we buy a bottle and take home what was left. The Deli has a wonderful selection of wines from all over the world. We... More

Thought we would try for lunch. So happy we did, I will definitely be returning. Historic building mellow atmosphere. Tried the Chicken Basil Penne amazing. Expect quality not quantity.

I've reported in the past on the excellence of the Deli's sandwiches, and I go often for those, but after stopping by yesterday and dropping $232 on wine, cheese and various salumi--and not because I needed much, but because it was all so heavenly I just couldn't stop myself--I felt the need to come back and extol the Deli's virtues...

Homemade sausage, confit, excellent selection of charcuterie and cheese from Europe. Sandwiches, excellent selections of wines. Not fancy, a bit funky, just one of the best in the Northwest. Worth getting of I5 when you drive through Bellingham.

Love their italians sandwiches with high quality meats and cheeses. They seem small for the price but they are filling. Very busy at lunch time so plan ahead.
