I’ve been here before and was looking forward to a return. I was warmly welcomed when I entered and told I could order lunch or brunch. I chose the Jewish Cuban with potato salad and ordered two drinks with the intention of sharing. The order...More

I came in early this morning asking for bagel and lox. I was politely told it was only available on the weekend, but the place across the street might have some. As I was about to cross the street, the waitress came out saying that...More

A friend recommended this deli for breakfast. Was not disappointed! Cornbeef Hash was the best! Staff was excellent.

the sandwich I always have is corned beef. It comes with about 1/2 lb of corned beef on rye. It is my favorite and I usually split it with a friend. Potato salad is good as is the cole slaw.

This is your classic New York style deli. Food is quite good and service is decent. Not a bad place for lunch.

Tried this on a recommendation. It has obviously gone down hill. A lot of bread, very little meat. Bread burned and onion rings over cooked and greasy. Won't be back.
