Description: The Linden Store was founded in 1933. Operated by the entire family, the Store was an immediate success. It has been in business continuously and is well known for consistent quality and service. Son Greg began working under his parents' supervision at the age of ten, while son Mark joined in his high school years. Today Mark and Greg are the owners of The Linden Store Deli. While the Deli continues to offer traditionally awesome favorites, the menu has evolved to meet our clientele's tastes and needs. We use only the best suppliers and receive shipments daily to ensure fresh products. Committed to embracing our strong local roots, The Linden Store has been providing delicious deli food to generations in the greater Wellesley community. We enthusiastically support youth efforts by donating to school and sports programs in Wellesley and surrounding communities and take pride in being part of the neighborhood fabric. Babson College, Wellesley College, Dana Hall School and Fessendon School are just a few of the numerous educational institutions that plan their catered events through TLS. Many companies such as Morgan Stanley and Merrill Lynch also choose to regularly cater through The Store. The atmosphere here is authentic and upbeat; nostalgic yet current. We have a sincere and friendly staff who have been part of the Deli team for decades. Together with you, let's keep the Linden Store deli going for a lifetime.

“Unbelievable sandwiches”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Very fresh ingredients, nice atmosphere. Definately a cut above.

It seems like the bread is home made and the service is quick and courteous.

“Great deli”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Recently tried several subs at the Linden Store. The place is hopping! A weekend lunch was controlled chaos, but I was very impressed at how fast the long line moved and how well the staff prepared multiple custom sandwiches. They are a well oiled machine. The quality of the ingredients and the bread was great. The half-sour pickles were awesome. The menu is extensive, with a lot of different sandwiches available and the option to combine any ingredients in your own combo. There is limited casual seating inside and some tables on the sidewalk. Definitely a great place for takeout subs.

The Linden Store is probably one of my favorite restaurants in Wellesley. The owner of the store, Mark LeBrun, is very nice. He keeps the store in good shape. The sandwiches, particularly the Lindsay Lu, my favorite, are very good. I Love Linden!

“The best sandwiches in town”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Living in Wellesley for 22 years it is hard to count how many times I visited Linden store, formerly called "Ninos". When I come home from Europe, this is the first lunch place I stop. So many great choices in selection, everything is fresh and service is fast, excellent and with smile. I always find a space at the counter and love to listen to locals.Meat is hand sliced, bread is always fresh and condiments excellent. When in Wellesley, do not miss this small place almost hidden behind a gas station on Linden Street.
