This is the best deli in Toronto! Excellent food and traditional deli. If your're in the mood for some good old fashioned deli, this is the place to go. Great soup, deli meat sandwiches and terrific fries.

My sister and I came into your deli today and shared a old fashioned smoke meat special. Real Montreal style and delicious... Even the coffee was great. After finishing our meal we headed over to the take out to get some chop liver and rye bread. When we got home we could not believe how delicious and fresh the chop... More

We were here with our Toronto family & grandkids. Somewhat far from their house but well worth the trip. For us ex-Montrealers who are starved for what we had after moving away, this was like manna from heaven. We thoroughly enjoyed our sandwiches which you see in these photos. I had a stuffed chicken sandwich and wife had smoke meat.... More

Not strictly kosher but that doesn't keep it from being a classic deli. Centre Street Deli has been entrenched at this location since the area developed almost 30 years ago. Often busy, noisy, bustling and Jewish - a fantastic atmosphere and the food is exactly what you'd expect. All of your deli favorites are classically prepared in generous portions. I... More

I'm not a total fan of the "Deli Place" but if you are looking for a corned beef on Rye you won't be disappointed. The restaurant was crowded and service was as a result a bit slow. It's popular for a reason! It's filled with Deli lovers!

Some of my earliest memories of great Deli are form Snowden Delicatessen in Montreal. Centre Street Deli takes all of the recipes and quality of Snowden and transplants it perfectly to Thornhill. If you like Montreal Deli then this is the place to go. There are a few items that are a must at this restaurant. The club roll with... More

The food is always good, the service is excellent and the price is as expected. The only negative is the decor, which could use a little bit of refurbishment. Not a lot but maybe some booths and fresh paint.

They had a lot if meat and... More

If you love "Montreal style" deli type restaurants... then look no further. "Real" Montreal smoked meat (beef for those who don't know) piled high on rye bread! Great fries! Great coleslaw (oil / vinegar, not creamy) and kosher-style pickles. A meal truly designed to make your blood pressure rise both from the salt and the delicious-ness of the event! Their... More

This place is an institution in this neighborhood and is a gem. Cheryl runs a tight ship and Sam keeps the best food coming. Tommy keeps it all going whenever Sam or Cheryl are not there. The wait staff is there to be sure you have a good time. They are attentive and rarely miss anything. There is something to... More
