Mac’s Deli & Cafe


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015, 2017 Winner

Location and contact

Mac’s Deli & Cafe is the oldest continuing breakfast and sandwich cafe in Sonoma County. It would be surprising if there was another deli of that type within the county’s 1,550 square miles that could match Mac’s reputation for building New York-style sandwiches in the same location for over 60 years.
