I Love Cecil's! It's busy, it's noisy, it smells good. The front half is a store front featuring kosher grocery items like condiments and dry goods. They also have a full Deli counter with kosher meats and cheese and other yummy items. They feature their...More

This deli has great food and excellent service! I have been going here since I was in elementary school and it is still the best deli in ALL of the twin cities.

We love this deli. All their sandwiches are great and the hot borscht is fabulous. It feels like you’re stepping into the 50’s with this family owned and operated place. Simple decor and friendly service.

Our family picks up rye bread every year at Cecil's before we head to Ontario on a fishing trip. Walleye, perch and Cecil's rye bread! Heaven!

I get to Cecil’s maybe twice a year to enjoy their special pastrami sandwich named “Some Like It Hot”. It just doesn’t get any better! My two lunch friends both had the famous Rueben. It’s a real treat to go to this specialty deli!

I am a frequent visitor. Try the Sasha sandwich and pick up almond hamentashen from the deli. Tough to go wrong with anything here.

Ordered reubens, one with a side of potato salad and the other with cole slaw. Everything was delicious; the slaw one of the best I have ever eaten, as many times they lack much flavor. Service was quick even with the place mostly filled. A...More

Ahhh with prices, sorry. The prices were reasonable for the food we got, I wouldn't call the place low budget but we wouldn't hesitate to go back here again and again.
