The menu has something for everyone! Homemade soups, salads, pasta, unbelievable deli sandwiches, desserts and much more. The cream of mushroom soup was fabulous. Service was fast and friendly (Armando was our server ). Definitely will be back on my next visit to Palm Springs.

We went here for Sunday lunch. Great menu, so many choices that you would normally expect to see on a menu in, well, Manhattan. Good service, good prices, great food. We ordered five different meals, and all were delicious and large. Can't wait to go back next time I'm in Palm Springs.

What a great place for traditional deli style food. Portions are huge so bring your appetite and someone to share with. The desserts are out of this world.

We usually go to the MITD in Palm Desert but we now love the Palm Springs location after this tasty and fun stop. This MITD is also beautifully furnished. has a fun counter seating area,, has several seating areas of comfy booths or tables yet feels more cozy. No bar but there is a delicious and tempting bakery just as... More

This is without a doubt the best NYC deli in Palm Springs. Unfortunately time marches on and so do the sandwich prices up over $2.00 each depending upon your selrction. Still a great value.

Great atmosphere, friendly host and server. We were made to feel very welcome. The menu is one of the most extensive I have ever seen, which makes it difficult for someone who has trouble making a decision! Our hosts (Palm Spring Locals) said that everything they have tried has been delicious. I finally settled on the Philly Cheese Steak and... More

We stopped by here for lunch at the recommendation of a friend. The food was delicious and the portion sizes were more than generous. Everyone took home leftovers. I appreciated that the food tasted great without adding tons of salt to compensate. The desserts are beautiful. We tried the Cheesecake and it had a wonderful flavor and was enough for... More

I have family in Palm Springs so they insisted I try this place and they were right! I shared a few dishes with the family and can easily recommend the reuben sliders, the bbq brisket sliders, pastrami sliders, the quesadillas, and especially reuben fries! They have an extremely extensive menu which makes it difficult to choose. They also have a... More
