Been going to Centre street for many years. Most recently a week ago! Must say this place is one of my favourites. The smoked meat sandwich is hard to beat. Fresh cut fries seals the deal! Too bad I don't live as close to this place as I used to!

The best smoked meat in Thornhill area! Their sandwich boxes of egg and tuna, egg and salmon and cream cheese are a staple in our home. Their chop liver is really great as well.

We love their deli sandwiches, greek salad and cheese blintzes. The decor is very much deli, nothing fancy and rather noisy but that gives you the deli experience. I just wish they stayed open later than 8 pm because if you arrive after 730 they won't always seat you and you have to finish up and leave by 8pm. Great... More

There is nothing fancy here but, this is a classic deli that never disappoints. I have been here on several occasions for lunch & it is always busy but never have to wait very long to get a table whether it is for 2 or 6. The service is courteous, fast & they pay attention to detail. The food is... More

When in the mood for a good smoked meat sandwich, this is where we head. Decor is homey with interesting history painted on the walls. In ice casual place.

I dont know what the big problem is but something isn't right. Was there for breakfast with some friends. The place was almost empty. The bagels were not baked on site but brought in. Ugh! The prices have gone up. I guess to pay for the purchase from old owners. I give it a try for lunch or dinner but... More

I have been going here for years. I grew up with Pancer's Deli, Yitz's, Shopsy's and Coleman's. Centre Street offers the best, high quality and consistent deli meats of any delicatessen anywhere. Even Prime Minister Harper had a meal here! The owners still work in the restaurant. They offer a wide variety of deli meats, salads, breads and dairy dishes... More

You have to go for some excellent, home like cooked dishes, served with smiles & jokes. Friendly atmosfere, huge portions, very tasty for sure you will leave with some take out too. A must to eat: the kreplah soup and the smoked meat (Montreal style) sandwich
