“What a find!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

We were in town to reminisce about our college days. Saw the deli and went in--I couldn't believe my eyes--a menu of 75 different sandwiches. This should make it into the Guinness Book of Records!! Hubby had rueben and I had Pete's 2 over Prime--turkey and corned beef on rye with mustard, cheddar, lettuce and tomato. <drooling thinking about it>

“OMG my belly loves this deli”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

Unique daily special combos with great prices. Interesting menu and quality meats and baked goods. My favorites? DJs Berry best and Guard Morning World (that's an oldie off the menu). Fresh fresh fresh

“Confusing and Amazing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

I am not quite sure how such a small place puts out such an array of amazing sandwiches but Circles pulls it off. I first went in here thinking it was a souvenir shop only to find one of the best damned delis this side of NYC!

“My Honey the Ham”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

It is simply my favorite sandwich--tons of ham on a croissant with coleslaw, alfalfa sprouts, and I forget what else but I love it. And they give you some pickles on the side. What could be better?!

“Great Sandwiches and Famous Mac & Cheese”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

I love getting lunch at circles - their meat is always sliced fresh and to order, they have a ton of different sandwiches to choose from, and lots of great daily specials. Their mac & cheese is amazing and it goes fast! My only issue would be that a few times I purchased candy from their many displays of goodies only to find that they were past their expiration dates. They could really use a run-through of their supply to make sure it is all fresh.
