Incredible coffee, if you can handle spicy I highly recommend their el Diablo! I’ve had quite a few of their sandwiches and all of them have been unhinged! Five stars, all day long! Friendly staff, incredible food, and quirky atmosphere make this an awesome place!...Thanks guys, TaraMore

The location is quaint and fun as I think it used to be an old service station. However, if you have more than 4 people you MUST sit outside as they won't let you put tables together (probably a fire code thing) so for us...it was hot because we had 6 people. You order at the counter and then they eventually bring your food out. And it's brought out one order at a time, not one table at a time. Those are whatever. The reason I really gave it 3 stars is the following: the staff is nice enough but not overly nice, most of the sandwiches have spicy something on them and I can't do spice. I got a salad because I really felt like I couldn't eat any of the sandwiches. However, the portions are big and possibly sharable if you aren't overly hungry. I'd be back if I weren't picking the place but it's not my first choice of places to eat.More

Stopped in this adorable restaurant after going to some local antique stores. It was super cute inside- my iced coffee was great and the menu looked delicious. I settled on a turkey curry sandwich on a croissant. The sandwich was great- Can’t wait to go...back.More

My husband and I are attending a tournament nearby and are trying to eat "plant based". We were worried about finding something to eat in the area. I found this online. So glad we did! We both ordered the hummus paninni. It was delicious and...huge. We both had to box part of the sandwich to take home They offered all of their sandwiches as a salad if you want to avoid the bread. Service was very friendly and quick. The hummus and pickels were made on site. Very delicious. If we are in the area again we look forward to going back !More

My wife and I were driving around some smaller cities west of Orlando and decided to stop in Tavares. It was getting near lunchtime and I checked TripAdvisor and saw some positive reviews for Deli Llama. I cannot understand how good it was. The sandwich...I had was as good a sandwich as I can remember eating in a long long time. I had the Fat Ham n’ Cheese. I will attach a picture. The sandwich had ham, capicola, Gruyere, cheddar, cream cheese, Red onion, pickles in something called Cuban sauce pressed on sourdough. My wife had the goat cheese, cranberry and apple salad. She loved it. I called one of my sons ( a foodie) who lives in Los Angeles and told him that I had just eaten at a deli that had a laid-back LA vibe. It is worth the trip to go there if you were anywhere close by. Their menu is very creative. The next time I go there I might check out a grilled cheese sandwich with balsamic onion jam.More

Very disappointed. I placed a curbside order online @ 12:03. My confirmation email said 20 - 30 minutes. I called when I got there at 12:19 p.m. told the lady I was already outside. She said she would see if my order was ready and...bring it out. I called back at 12:37 p.m. and was told that I still needed to pay and they were to busy to deal with curbside. I had paid for my order online she then asked me about the wrong order. She finally brought me my food at 12:43 (which would have been fine) & told me that if I'd noticed online it says a 30 minute wait. While I was trying to speak she interrupted me & started walking off. I said excuse me I was speaking & started to ask for her manager when she interrupted me again to tell me that I was rude. I said don't worry about it & that I was never going to come back.More

I was very impressed with the menu selection. Different combinations on paninis, flat breads and wraps. Unusual decor and different atmosphere. The three of us all had something different and all really enjoyed our lunches. Plan on going back soon and enjoying a different choice....Coffee was wonderful. We all like trying something different and this stop has all of that! Tryi it. You will not be sorry.More

Stopped by The Deli Llama for lunch and had paninis. Both the Cuban and Italian paninis were delicious. Fun, eclectic atmosphere and fantastic service and food. The staff was very friendly. I highly recommend going there, you also get a lot of food so we...had leftovers. We will be back to try some other items on the menu soon. The Deli Llama beats every sandwich shop in the area hands down.More

Two of us stopped in for lunch after seeing a writeup of the restaurant. A quaint, unique space set in a former gas station. Their sandwiches are anything but run of the mill. Unique ingredient combinations that make for a delicious choice. While we were...reviewing the menu, the owner came over to see if we had questions and explained how they made the sandwiches and pointed out some unique features. We ordered a couple different ones and split them so we would try multiple choices. Very unique and delicious. I especially enjoyed the Turkey A with avocado and arugula and a nice spread. We will be returning to try other items. There is ample parking and the restaurant is easily accessible--no small feat for one so close to the busy downtown area.More

Great location---an old converted has station. Wife and I tried the Jalapeno popper and the A Turkey sandwich and mixed so we could each eat a half of a different sandwich. Incredibly rich and fantastic details. People----they make their own pickles!!!! Yes, that kind of...detail. We also had their nachos (pulled pork and goat cheese which were good, but needed some sauce on the pork. Highly recommend. Great and engaging service staff. Next time we will try one of their Charcuterie boards of meat and cheese!More

I had driven past this place on a fairly routine basis and never noticed it until some friends at work said it was worth a try. A converted gas station from the 1950s gives it a unique flair. The owners and staff were friendly, accommodating,...and the menu options were varied and exciting, to say the least. Their Facebook page says it better than I could: “Cafe Style w/ unique Atmosphere, offering Paninis, Appetizers, Sodas, Beer, Wine and Market items.” I tried the Llama Cuban, and my co-workers tried the A’s Turkey panini. They were both well prepared and very much worth the price of $9. I guess that this place is a prominent pit stop for beer and wine after work The menu is a mix of unique offerings which might not be for the usual Subway sandwich crowd, but if you are adventurous and looking for something a little more out of the ordinary, this will be your place.More

We cannot rave enough about this place. We were in town for a short time and were sick of chain restaurants and wanted a good sandwich, but weren’t expecting phenomenal. We ordered the hot mess and A’s turkey. The owners are extremely personable and the...atmosphere is quaint and relaxed. Definitely need to try this place!More

My wife found this deli online so we decided to give it a try. So glad we did. It’s actually in a retired gas station which makes it that much more quaint. Great location (2 blocks north of Main St). Plenty of parking. Seating inside...or outdoors. The owners are friendly and personable. Made me a vegetarian friendly, pressed hummus sandwich. Also got a cheese platter with the most amazing combinations ever. Delicious! Add some craft beer and a giant Foster’s and you have an incredible meal. The decor of the deli is lots of fun. Play some Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots while you wait for your food. Very impressive restaurant/bar that we will definitely be visiting again. Highly recommended!More
