the old fashion is the best tasting deli sandwich of all times. They also have one of the best tasting fries to compliment your sandwich. Fast service great food great parking well enough said I got to go for another sandwich at Centre Street Deli

Am happy to say I live nearby, but don't eat there too often. (It would be bad for the arteries!) But - when we do - it's always excellent! Real Montreal smoked meat- real hand cut, no machines! HMMM - hankering for one really soon! The only negative are the hours - what great smoked meat deli closes at 8pm???

Let's begin by stating the obvious - Schwartz's Smoked Meat in Montreal is the BEST in the universe. One of two best delis in Toronto for old style Jewish home cooking is located about a mile from here in Vaughan the second one in mid-town Toronto about four miles away (albeit excluding smoked meat). All other delis in Toronto are... More

We love going to Centre Street Deli! We go for the food, especially the smoked meat, as well as the staff - some of the best wait staff in town - friendly and very knowledgeable!

In my opinion this is the best Jewish deli in our whole area, including Toronto. The old fashioned smoked meat on rye is my choice of sandwich every time. I always get the special that includes the fries, a dill pickle and cole slaw although I am not fond of the cole slaw here. Everything tastes fresh and homemade though.... More

Only if you want the best Old Fashioned Smoked Meat sandwich this side of St. Lawrence Street in Montreal, should you eat at Centre Street Deli in Thornhill!! Sure, their other menu items are good too, but the old fashioned is the reason you come here. By the way, once you're diving in, have your sandwich on double rye with... More

That 's the place to go for Montreal style smoked meat. Not a fancy place, but good service and excellent smoked meat. Expect a line up at lunch time. ''Connaisseurs'' know the place.

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
