I ate here everyday for a week. Each day I tried something different but some of the menu items were so good that I would repeat anyway. Each meal is hand crafted with great attention to detail and quality. Very consistent. Great food!

Tomales is a quaint little crossroads in Marin county. The deli is in a vintage building on the main corner. The sandwiches were wonderful. Well prepared with quality ingredients. Prices were very reasonable. You can eat inside or at tables on the sidewalk very good- recommended

There are not a lot of dining options available sometimes and this little place opens early enough in the morning to fix you a spot of breakfast to get you going. Decent, hand-cooked food for a decent price.

Not sure how we came across this place but we got some good hot chocolate and directions (one of many) in which we stopped to try to find the "cypress tunnel" ... Might be worth getting lost all day to find but its a beautiful drive.

My husband and I stopped for lunch while on a bike ride. They had a bike rack, which is a good thing for that location! Their selection of sandwiches is good and they also have build your own options. We had the tri-tip sandwich and a chili verde sandwich. The tri-tip was on a delicious ciabatta roll and was very...

Good selection of sandwiches made to order. Both the regular ham and cheese sort as well as custom selections. Their pulled pork sandwich is pretty good. Also has bottled beer which is nice on a warm day. Free WiFi. This can be handy as wireless coverage is spotty in the area.

Breakfast sandwiches and coffee were great. Although we did not purchase any, they had some delicious pastries available for purchase. The menu was extensive. We did carryout for a picnic.

Stopped in here for breakfast on day two of two day trip. Mistake. Should have gone back to Estero Cafe. Tomales Deli, Bakery, Cafe (it's all in one business) was mediocre at best. Food was edible but uninspiring (mostly commercially prepared, except the eggs).

We were staying at a rental in Dillon Beach and made the short drive to the Deli for some yummy coffee. One of the mornings I also got an egg sandwich. I loved the local feel and the very friendly staff. Even after only being there for 3 days I already felt like a local when I walked in. I... More

Alright, this isn't a fancy deli but it is better than a dive. We noticed a bunch of bicyclists in stretchy pants had stopped there so we pulled over. Turns out they were just sucking up the Perrier water but we ordered sandwiches. The roast beef was very good. My BLT with avocado was also very good. Watch what you... More
