“Good old fashioned deli/bakery”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

We were chilly and a little hungry in mid afternoon on a weekday in the "off" season, so drove the streets of Washington looking for a dessert, coffee and hot tea.. We were about to give up when we came across Jee's Deli and Bakery and it was open!

We had to ask what many of the displayed desserts were, got pleasant answers (including 3 or 4 repeats as we had difficulty choosing) and selected two of them. Delightful!

The only disappointment was that they do not serve any kind of hot tea. A small selection of teas available in the colder months would be a good business decision.

The chalkboard menu shows a range of deli sandwich makings (meats, cheeses, etc.) and the customer is invited to design one that the staff will prepare. The minus points for spelling errors chalked in added conversation points.

The deli was clean, inviting, and the counter server very pleasant. The restroom was spotless.

We'll be back to enjoy the sandwich options.

“Catering trays - OUTstanding”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

Placed an order over the phone from out of town for a local family funeral. Spoke directly with Joe the owner who took care of everything. Trays of meats, cheeses, freshly baked (still warm!) bread and desserts were delivered on time and were raved about by the family the entire weekend. Superb quality and service. Much thanks.

“Not Impressed”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

This sandwich shop came highly recommended, however on our visit the entire place was a wreck. Food on the floors, food on the tables, dirt and dust in the window sills and when we stood at the counter to place our order the floor behind the counter looked like someone had thrown food all over it.
We ordered sandwiches since that was what had been recommended to us and they were so "average" there's not a lot to say about them.
We shared a piece of coconut cream pie and it was very nice.
Might have been a bad day for them, but we probably won't go back.

“Great Sandwiches, Salads and Sweets”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

Jose's makes excellent fresh sandwiches and salads with generous proportions. Soups are good. Homemade chips are a treat when they have them. Finish off your meal with beautiful fresh pastries. I appreciate their late afternoon hours -- they close at 5. Great catering services as well. Indoor seating is limited but Joe has a few cafe tables out front and the beautiful Washington, Missouri, riverfront park is just a block away.
