Great sandwiches

They are expensive but worth a splurge now and then. I got a muffaletta. Packed with quality meat, nice tapenade, on a great roll. My friend got a similar sandwich and it was also tasty.

Great food and wine by the bottle! They have good specials and everything from panini's to salads to charcuterie. It's not fancy but cozy. It is "old world" with the decor but super comfy. They have a happy hour where you can get discounts on beer and wine and food. Nice little place in old Bellingham for a dinner out.

This deli/cafe is always a fun place to eat, or even just to stock up on delicious meats and cheeses. Their soups and sandwiches are delicious, as is their housemade iced tea. There is also a great selection of wine and other Italian food.

This place is wonderful! They have a great assortment of handmade cured meats and tasty cheeses. Love going here on a wine tasting night and getting to try the assortment of goodies that they offer on the side.

A variety of deli sandwiches, coffee drinks and even wine for your lunch. Follow it all with a bit of pastry or a cookie for dessert, too. A nice place to stop on a rainy day (or any day) while walking around Bellingham and enjoying the town. In addition to providing hot food there is a variety of meats and... More

Old World Deli is a quaint brick-walled café that serves freshly made sandwiches and soups. Daily specials are available also. It's a great place to meet your friends and people watch too.

When ever we are in Bellingham we also have to stop for lunch at OWD. The muffelata was as good as any in NOLA's Central Market. Soup's, salads, and sandwiches are fresh and generous. I don't get the review before that said they were skimpy servings unless you are an NFL linebacker. We can barely get through a half sandwich.... More
