“Always excellent”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Love the german potato salad and sausages, we have tried several different ones. Love the beer sausage. The sauerkraut is fresh and unexpectedly mild. The last two years we have ordered ahead and got a fresh smoked ham from there. Far superior to anything available at Costco or a supermarket.

They smoke all the meats there and the people who do the smoking serve the customers too. great service, the family and employees all know their product well. We love it. They also have a small German/european market with other great items. Nice beer selection too.

“Smell's like Oma's house!”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

I found the help to be delightful - try greeting them in German!
While I was hoping for good German Brotchen, I was pleased to see the incredible lunch specials, meat and cheese selections, and German beer and candy.
If I lived in the area, I would certainly visit on a weekly basis, just for the deli.

“Get past the unhappy staff...”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Wow! Sad, frowning, surly, rude, condesending, smart crap responses from most of the staff...get past that and the food, beer, deli and German products are awsome. Been going there for a year. Makes me thing my job is not so bad. If you want friendly happy workers...not the place to go.

“Things European here in Portland”
Reviewed March 21, 2012

I've lived in Europe for 15 years and come from German parents so european culture has been a big part of my life. Edelweiss Deli is about as close to getting european foods, magazines and a limited selection of other supplies as one can get in the Pacific NW.
The Kassler smoked pork chops, leberkaes , hams and sausages are made fresh and taste a lot like food you would get in Germany. The imported jars/canned goods, chocolates and candies and coldcase items are pricey but also items you might find in northern european stores. The baked goods , breads and rolls are probably the least authentic of the european items , also usually fresh and decent.
Service is good and even though on Saturday mornings, this place can look like a frenzied free for all , taking a number from the number dispenser by the front door, will ensure you orderly , prompt and helpful service.
For newbies, just point to anything that looks good and ask for a sample, which the counterpeople give readily.
Limited seating in the snackbar area gives you a place to order food and drink to enjoy at the Edelweiss.

“Superb sandwiches and drink selection”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

Great tasting sandwiches, but prefer the Oktoberfest. Grab a dinner steak while waiting.
