“Funky family run place with delicious sandwiches, beer, wine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

On a trip from Seattle up to Whistler we stopped in Bellingham for lunch. Old World Deli is a low key place with really good sandwiches along with wine and beer. It was good enough to get us to stop in on the way back to Seattle!

“East coast deli in bellingham”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

These people brought excellent deli meats and cheeses usually found in old Italy in Vancouver or pike place market in Seattle. Chris's make wonderful handmade sausages like bratwurst, Italian sausage, or his flavor of the week sometimes as exotic as duck. Soups are made with care and filling on their own. Sandwiches are always made with care and they have an excellent selection of fairly price wines. This is a restaurant making an effort to be involved with the community by special event and dinners. Well worth a visit.

“Best sandwiches in town!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Old World Deli is an inconspicuous restaurant on State Street, but not a place to ignore. The pastrami literally melts in your mouth and their muffaletta sandwich is as close to New Orleans authentic as we have found. A good assortment of special beer and old-fashioned soda pop makes a simple lunch a real treat. Take time to meander through their small retail area where you will find wines and olives and other hard-to-find items to take home with you or give as gifts. We haven't gone to one yet, but they also put together wine pairing dinners that, if their other offerings are any indication, are a must to attend!

“Beautiful place with Amazing Sandwiches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We took some time to research a restaurant in Bellingham as we find that the food is always not awesome when we visit this border shopping town and we were not disappointed! The food was fresh and very delicious, I could have had two sandwiches! We selected the soup of the day and grilled panini type sandwiches. The area was very neat, had a few cool stores around that we checked out after and there was also meter parking directly on the street out front. We will for sure be back!

“This Deli really is Old World”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

They have all kinds of deli meats and cheese. Their bread is baked right there - it's so good, we've special ordered loaves for dinner parties at our home. Nice selection of wines. They will give you samples of various deli items, if you're not sure. Sometimes a pretty long line at lunch time - a good sign :-)
