Best smoked meat in Ontario. Breakfast also great. Been going here since they where in a smaller location down the street.

Always have a great experience at Centre Street Deli! The smoked meat is beyond compare (we like it extra lean) and the Greek salad is crave-worthy. The staff is super family friendly - always accommodating to the kids. Ask for the spicy mustard for your sandwich. And if you want a delicious change from tuna fish, the white fish spread... More

I was a regular of Centre Street Deli for many years, until I moved out of the area. I do, however, pay a visit from time to time to settle cravings for an old fashioned on a kaiser, some party sandwiches to take home along with Sam's famous rice pudding to go! It's more than a 35 km drive, but... More

Flew in to Toronto and had a friend pick me up and took me here. At first I wasn't sure about this but I was later convinced why he brought me here. It was early in the morning, I could smell smoke meat right away but I wanted some coffee and breakfast. The fresh smoke meat would only be ready... More

I enjoy coming to CSD and always order the Montreal smoked meat special. It is very good. I have lived in Montreal and know good smoked meat. This lives up to expectations! I hear that there is new ownership by some long time employees, Hopefully they don't change anything! Their greek salad is also awesome and everything tastes better with... More

Omg, this place is so busy and for good reason. Food delicious, portions were delightful. The meat sandwiches are a must and the Greek salad was yummy!! Advise... Don't go during peak feeding hours. 😊

I paid $10 for muhn cookies, and $21 for a apple/cherry strudel (outrageous price for a strudle IMO). The cookies were delicious. The strudel hardly had any cherries and the pastry was very very soggy.. I was quite upset at the price I paid for it. I could have gotten the same size strudel, made with much better flaky pastry,... More

The Centre Street Deli is a typical deli, with a wide range of menu options, basic décor, and super friendly service. The flagship meal, of course, is the reuben sandwich, which come in options of corned beef of smoke meat. Who would go for anything else than a real Montreal style smoked meat sandwich?! This restaurant has been there forever... More

Authentic tasting old Montreal Smoked meat on Rye! Absolutely a place in history, A dated authenticity that has been nearly lost in NY, this one succeeds to remain successful! A real delight from yesteryears.
