It is a deli!

Delightful little place, where you are made to feel welcome the moment you set foot in the door. Killer sandwiches, especially the roast beef!

I went solo to breakfast as I happened upon this little deli on a drive by. Normally, for breakfast, a boutique deli can be relied upon, particularly for oatmeal -- which I usually expect something quite wonderful. Not here. Ordering at the counter was easy and speedy, but it took almost 15 minutes to get the oatmeal, and there were... More

A friend of mine once told me, "A good sandwich place is hard to find." She is right, but finding a great sandwich place is even harder, and It's A Deli is a GREAT sandwich place! While I only recently discovered it, they've been in a business for quite a while and have a very loyal group of customers. And... More

This place is a cute little deli! It is like walking into your mom's house for lunch on a hot summer day. The staff is friendly & they go out of their way to make the food to suit you. The Rueben was terrific! Sauerkraut was juicy, but not too salty. The pastrami was lean. I could have used some... More

Stopped by for a bite. Great cozy atmosphere. Fresh and all homemade, and they put my sandwich in a beautiful lettuce roll. I had turkey with avocado and my girlfriend had a Reuben. Hers needed a bit of veggies and they did forget the cheese; but I'm sure they would've fixed it. Still crunchy and loaded with meat. The owner... More

If your are looking for a perfect deli sandwich, you must stop here and meet Karen and her staff. An owner operated gem. The deli is perfectly clean, the food is made to order and always properly prepared. You will often see "the regulars" up at the bar and everyone is friendly. The daily specials are delicious. The coffee and... More

Our tennis team ate lunch here between matches one day. We had a great experience. The staff was very accommodating and patient with a large group with a few gluten free people. Karen took our orders and took a picture with us. Seems like all the locals get here around noon and wanted to talk to us. It was a... More

We have been eating here for years. The quality is always up to expectations ... fresh bread and the turkey is cooked fresh each morning. It never disappoints. The owners are friendly and it is obvious they care about the food they serve. They moved from the center just across the street about a year ago and their loyal customers... More

A wide variety of choices. Looking forward to going back to try more of their great good. Also, the service was very friendly. Wish there was one of these closer to my house.
