I was short on time and just wanted to pick up a sandwich for the road. I really did not have an idea what I wanted, and the woman waiting on me suggested a German black forest ham on rye with a german soft cheese. It just might have been the best ham sandwich I have every eaten! There is... More

This deli has a good selection of items found on the shelf in Switzerland. The staff is nice. The hours are not worker friendly.

not a restaurant it is a German food store with all the sausages and cheese and everything else you would find in a German store in Germany. The best things are the home made salads just to die for. Trip Advisor is screwed up on this one Not a Restaurant. But the only place to go.

The person who reviewed earlier obviously means the Edelweiss Restaurant in Norridge, IL. Edelweiss Delicatessen in Palatine IL doesn't serve liver and onions or creme brulee. They are not affiliated at all. Edelweiss Delicatessen is a full service deli with homemade salads and soups. A full line of German lunchmeats and imported cheeses.

Wonderful Palatine "secret." Fantastic homemade soups, German Potato Salad, Herring in Wine Sauce and on and on. Try the different "liver sausages" or the brats! Great deli.
