House-roasted meats, homemade soups, salads and desserts are staples at this comfortable, friendly and delicious deli in Old Town.

I've taken out lunch from Nickell's but always found the deli unfriendly. They have some nice dishes, but none that I would go back to immediately. There are better places in Old Town

This place is ok. It wasn't particularly clean when I went, and a lot of their food seemed to have been out for a while. I probably won't be back.

Susan and Louie are delightful, will work with you on a lovely catered dinner, and will also provide you terrific sandwiches and the best vichysoisse you have ever had. Their meats are home cured, and their soups are divine. A go-to caterer and eatery

My take-out meal from N&S was very good, reminding me of food at the table of a relative who was a great cook -- it felt family-like rather than upscale. The owners seemed a little tired and down, but it might have been a long...More

Chef is truly committed to cooking with the best ingredients, perusing the local farmer's markets, creating seasonal dishes with the utmost care. The spinach salad with fruit and nuts is the best I've had in the area for lunchtime takeout. Dressings are fresh, meats are...More
