“not as good any more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

used to have best pastrami in Orange County...but alas, portions are shrinking, pastrami is looking like chipped beef. Scrawniest cole slaw I have ever seen in a deli.

Bakery seeded rye bread is still great.

It's old and been around forever but the food is great and at a great price. Awesome bakery!!! You can't miss with anything you choose from there.

“Disappointing Deli”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Two stars only because of the good matzo ball soup. Everything else was terrible as follows:

1. Had to ask for a pickle tray. Really, at a deli? Usually automatic.
2. Ordered a three sandwich combo: Pastrami, Corned beef, Chopped liver. When the plate arrived there were three teeny tiny sandwiches on mini-rolls!! Are we rationing meats now? I assumed they'd come with rye bread (this IS a deli) and was later told rye bread was optional. What is this, White Castle?? If that wasn't bad enough, the mini-sadwiches came plain and I had to hunt down the waitress and ASK for mustard. When she brought the mustard it was the plain stuff you'd give a five year old. Had to track her down again and ask for deli mustard. Worst sandwich(s) I have EVER had.
3. Asked for water with lemon and got no lemon (no straw either).

Terrible service, bad food. Won't be coming back.

“Great bakery!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

The cakes are pretty darn good, especially the one with the fruit topping. Is a great one to impress at the work place.
I've eaten the scrambled eggs with matzos and that was delish!

“This is one of the best ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

This place is so good, I've never gotten a bad meal here. Ate here twice in a week. Had the corned beef and pastrami and they were to die for. Can't wait to go here again. I love how everything is always fresh. The waitresses are so sweet and don't even get me started on the bakery! The deserts are to die for, so wonderful!
