We’ve been getting DoorDash and picking up from the Palm Deli during COVID on nights I don’t feel like cooking. I think I’m addicted to the Jacks’s Special. I try to order other items but I just keep going back. My husband has been more...adventurous and has enjoyed several hot and cold sandwiches. Me? I like that turkey panini! The only I wish is if you could make substitutions via DoorDash and order sides like chips or Mac salad. Other than that it’s great with friendly service and a clean environment.More

We enjoy the deli sandwiches when in the area, and always look at the unusual wine store selections, which have convincing reviews. Today, we bought Windy Child Old Vine Zinfandel with a 92 point rating, but it really is a tangy, bitey, nasty wine, completely...undeserving of anything close to the rating. Best to buy your wine somewhere else.More

They make good sandwiches here, a good place to grab a quick lunch. There is a huge selection of gluten free desserts as well. The prices are higher than I expected, considering that the deli is located off a small street next to highway 9.

We visit there regularly and enjoy the variety and creativity of their sandwiches. We have turned some of our friends on to this deli and they, too, are regulars. My wife enjoys the Thanksgiving Every Day and I like the Hawaiian Heaven. There are other...sandwiches we enjoy but those keep coming up. A nice (small) wine list, and a variety of sweets, beverages and chips. The staff is helpful, friendly and always on top of the job.More

I had the chicken tortilla soup. It was too salt and I could only find 2 tiny pieces of chicken and no tortillas. They should have called it bean stew as it was 90% beans and 10% corn in a thick broth. It was 6.49...for this puney 8 oz serving. I wouldn't get this again. Doubt we'll be back.More

I ordered several sandwiches for an event. The staff was very friendly and we were very happy with the overall service. The manager was very helpful to give us options for our event, so it made it very easy to prepay our bill and come...and pick it up. I would come back for our next event.More

I had a quick macaroni salad snack on my way to a nearby appointment. They had a variety of macaroni salads to offer and they guided me to what they felt was the best one. And it was positively addictive! I even considered purchasing another...one since it was that good. Unfortunately, there wasn't enough time to try another or anything else that they offered. Therefore, I thought it fair to give this a 4 star review based on sheer ecstasy of their macaroni salad which was fresh and homemade.More

I stopped here with a friend for a sandwich and it was really good. They had a lot of gluten free items including bread if you so desire. We sat outside and they delivered the food to our table. They open early if you want...to get a sandwich to go or coffee. Enjoy!More
