“Best Jewish Deli around”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

And almost the only Jewish deli around. Classic egg salad, chicken livers, and deli meats. Good rye bread. Amazing bakery next door. They also sell their meats by the pound there.

“not as good any more”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

used to have best pastrami in Orange County...but alas, portions are shrinking, pastrami is looking like chipped beef. Scrawniest cole slaw I have ever seen in a deli.

Bakery seeded rye bread is still great.

“Disappointing Deli”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

Two stars only because of the good matzo ball soup. Everything else was terrible as follows:

1. Had to ask for a pickle tray. Really, at a deli? Usually automatic.
2. Ordered a three sandwich combo: Pastrami, Corned beef, Chopped liver. When the plate arrived there were three teeny tiny sandwiches on mini-rolls!! Are we rationing meats now? I assumed they'd come with rye bread (this IS a deli) and was later told rye bread was optional. What is this, White Castle?? If that wasn't bad enough, the mini-sadwiches came plain and I had to hunt down the waitress and ASK for mustard. When she brought the mustard it was the plain stuff you'd give a five year old. Had to track her down again and ask for deli mustard. Worst sandwich(s) I have EVER had.
3. Asked for water with lemon and got no lemon (no straw either).

Terrible service, bad food. Won't be coming back.

“Great bakery!!!”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

The cakes are pretty darn good, especially the one with the fruit topping. Is a great one to impress at the work place.
I've eaten the scrambled eggs with matzos and that was delish!
