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.

Extensive menus on black backgrounds which are hard to read. Deli stocks most meats and cheeses. Large variety of wines & bottled drinks. A very old country heterogeneous mixture of tables and chairs. TM

Beyond my expectations. I love clam chowder and enjoy having it at all restaurants offering it. This is in the top 3! The roast beef on fresh sour dough was excellent. A real eating treat which we will enjoy again. M.A.D.

I ate at Old World Deli a handful of times, when I was visiting Bellingham last year. A year later, I'm still dreaming of their sandwiches, soups and salad. There's a great selection of wine there too. You can grab a bottle for home as well! Kudos, guys.

Deli atmosphere to the max. Nice vibe. Heavy on the animal. Vegetarians can expect cheese and pesto or peppers. Nice local bread.

I really like the informal vibe to this place. The decor is very inviting. I ordered the spicy italian sandwich and a cup of lentil soup. The soup was delicious as was the sandwich, although a half portion was a little small for me. But it's really the atmosphere I like. Good place to just hang out and read a... More

Can someone please ask the owners to add a Portabella Panini to their menu? There is only so many times someone can eat the same old vegetarian sandwich options. I know they could make a wonderful Panini. Maybe they could try it as a special first?

Terrific soup and sandwiches on a cold day: the pannini were delicious: great bread, not too thick, excellent proscuitto , cheeses, and other deli meats, interesting wine selections - can't wait to return and work my way through the menu: so many delicious-sounding combinations, all at very reasonable prices!
