“Great modern cafe/deli”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

A breath of fresh air compared to the other rather old-fashioned cafes and chain coffee shops you get in Poole. Nice freshly-made food and cakes and decent coffee. A nice place to grab a newspaper and sit and watch life go by on the quay.

“Gorgeous Ice Cream!”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

We stopped for an ice cream here, - gorgeous local ice cream in a variety of flavours, packed with flavour, creamy and delicious! The handmade deli items looked very enticing too! Definitely recommended!

“The best sandwich I've ever had!”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

I was visiting my family members in Poole over the easter holidays and my sister told me that she had always wanted to visit 'Deli on the Quay'. It was a very sunny day so understandable, it was very busy. After walking inside, we were a little confused as to where the queue started and finished but the staff members observed that we looked a little lost and offered us a menu which explained all their sandwiches and showed us their specials board as well. After grabbing a table outside in the sun, we went to the till and ordered. Although there was a queue, you could see that all the staff were working as quickly as they could to help everyone and they were very friendly! Needless to say, the sandwich that I ordered was the best sandwich I have ever had (and very filling too). I would recommend this deli to everyone especially as the cake looked amazing! A hidden gem!

“A nice change to chips and beer.”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

First visit and have only good things to say about this place. Place was packed on our first pass by, but we were able to get a table later. Food was lovely and good value. Sandwiches made with thick sliced bread (not sure if homemade but v.tasty) and crammed full with filling. Staff friendly and helpful.
Also the option to purchase deli style food to take away. Should we be in Poole again, we will definitely return here for lunch or afternoon tea and cakes.

“Lovely lunch in the sun :) ”
Reviewed March 9, 2014 via mobile

Had such a lovely lunch at the Deli yesterday. The quiche was excellent and we had a fantastic view of the quay in the sun. It's not the fastest service but the staff are friendly. Just need a few more tables outside when the sun's out. Highly recommended.
