The cakes are to die for and there are always gluten free options. There are many delicious options for lunch. They are very good at what they do and really sweet themselves.

After driving by many times and seeing the street parking always packed, we decided we must give it a try and we were not disappointed! I had the Versailles panini with soup, my husband had the pesto benny. Both were delicious! As were the London Fogs we ordered to go with them. The display case contained decadent looking desserts too... More

If you like freshly prepared delicious food at very reasonable prices, then you are in for a treat at Tonolli. And the pastries are exquisite, mouth watering and melt in your month. Family run by two warm talented sisters with a good staff. We love it. A regular favourite.

I've been here twice with my family. Both times, the food was excellent. We have 2 young kids, one with severe food allergies, and they were SO accommodating. They offered to make him whatever he'd eat (grilled cheese, ham sandwich, etc). The paninis are great and the floats are even better. I had the carrot soup on one visit and... More

This is a lovely small deli with decadent desserts ( notice that is my first thought!) and sandwiches with lots of cool combinations of ingredients. Love the food. Nice area to eat outside. Can be crazy busy. Enjoyed the lavender latte.

Our first choice for lunch was crazy busy, so we decided to head to Tonelli's instead, and I am I glad we did! The sandwiches were packed with real sliced meats, amazing cheeses, and fresh vegetables. The soup today was turkey noodle, and even the noodles tasted homemade. I would absolutely recommend this place for a fabulous lunch... And don't... More

One of the best places to eat on the peninsula. The eggs benny is different than the traditional, but in a good way. Staff is friendly, fairly quick, coffee is good, the sandwiches are good, great atmosphere. The only negative thing I can say is that they get so busy there is a line up out the door some times.

Of course, you can't please all of the people all of the time. This is not a candle-lit, white tablecloth kind of place. It is a DELI, after all, as the name says. There are not a lot of tables, unremarkable ambiance, no waiters and it is often very busy with line ups at the till. So, why do people... More

I love this cafe! The food is of excellent quality and taste and the coffee is always fresh. Also, there is always a gluten-free option.
