A good little deli that is a step up from any chain sandwich shop. A good selection of sandwiches made right in front of you. There are some eat-in tables or there is the park across the street overlooking Lake Flower. A good cheap lunch alternative.

This deli has top notch deli meats and sandwiches. Also decent selection of craft beers. You can sit inside, outside at the tables, or scoot across the street to the lake. Would absolutely go back!

Lake View Deli is great! You can see Lake Flower from the deli. As a local, I go there all the time and I usually get either a plain bagel with cream cheese or a turkey sandwich.

When you are uncertain as to where you want to eat, give Lakeview Deli a try. Nothing fancy, plastic chairs and old green tables. Sits about 16 people indoors and a few out front with a lake view. No white table cloth, no waiters or waitresses, just good comfort food. I had the Tomato Macaroni Soup and the pork tenderloin... More

We had been out all day, and were very tired. We weren't even sure if the deli was still open after 7pm on a Sunday. As soon as I pulled open the door, we were greeted warmly with a "come on in". We wanted some sandwiches to go, and they were made perfectly to order. We got some salad also,... More

This is an excellent place for lunch. They make GREAT sandwiches. It is very busy at lunch time, so you may have to wait a little, but the wait is worth it.
