Don't be fooled by the size of the shop. It may be small but you will find it is filled to the rim with the most delicious cold meats, freshly made food, cheese,bread, etc. A must visit Cape Town Deli.

We were told that this is the place to go for bagels. We ordered smoked salmon cream cheese bagels which were fresh and made with good ingredients. The service was great and staff were very friendly too.
