Not exactly the old school NYC pastrami I crave, but it’s the best in Minnesota. Good food and service at a decent price. If your in the mood for Deli then this is the place for you. Have a nosh with your bubala!

You can’t beat this place anywhere in the Twin Cities. Good breakfast, too but deli sandwiches are the real deal. Adequate parking for this neighborhood. Enjoy!

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.
