“Great "Gluten Free" Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Loved this little deli and coffee shop! They had great GF selections and the employees were very knowledgeable about food allergens. They had delicious breakfast sandwiches, cookies and treats and great service! Sweet little place.

“Could be good, but . . .”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

I have been drawn to this deli several times, but have left disappointed each time. Most troubling, they still freely use styrofoam cups, bowls, and to-go containers. I find this incompatible with the island's mission to conserve nature. It would be nice if island businesses conducted themselves in accordance with the island's mission statement! Also, there are not many vegetarian choices and I have found the iced tea either old or weak. Great pies though!!

“Will not honor your coupon from paper!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

We ordered by phone 2 of the coupon specials that were in the Island Sun. One coupon was good until December 31and the other was good until January 31st but was for one dollar more. Came in on a Friday evening to pick up the order on time and they would not honor the coupon good until Dec. 31st. So we paid one dollar more but if you have a coupon that has not expired honor it. Maybe he was having a bad day. It was Friday evening and the place was empty and he still had an hour until closing but he was grumpy and took it out on us. I hope that one dollar was worth losing a customer who is a resident on the island.

“Could Be a Lot Better...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

It never ceases to amaze me how some businesses don't bother taking care of the simple things; i.e., cleaning the outside chairs or wiping off the tables. The outside eating area is pretty lame, a small roped off area with chairs that need replaced or, at the very least, a good power-washing. The person taking our order wasn't helpful and seemed pretty uninterested. Coffee was good; however, coffee at Bailey's Coffee Bar is better. Breakfast wrap sandwiches (egg, cheese and meat) were standard fare.

“Great Sandwiches!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

We decided to visit Sanibel Deli & Coffee Factory, after paddling Tarpon Bay Mangrove Tunnels in our kayaks, as the deli was highly recommended by other Trip Advisor reviewers. We were quite pleased; the sub sandwich and California Wrap were excellent, as we had read. The roll was tasty, as was the high-quality meat and cheese. And, all of the ingredients in the wrap were fresh. We’ll be back!
