The Deli is the perfect spot in downtown State College for good soup and salad, sandwiches, pastas, etc. The atmosphere is casual and the meals are a nice value.

Been to the Deli many times over the years. Inconsistent is my takeaway lately. Really like the diversity of the menu...chicken noodle soup, Jewish style sandwiches, wings, salads, good beer selection.....but the food is just inconsistent and the service lately was really poor. I had chicken noodle soup...their specialty...and it has always been great with or without the matzo balls but it came out brown..like beef broth was mixed in....sent it back....crab cobb sald was pretty good and the wings were too. But we couldn't seem to get refills on drinks and the food took forever at lunch time....well...take a shot but hope for the best and don't be too disappointed.....

I've eaten at many restaurants in State College, PA over the years. Most are very respectable. It is unusual to find any that are really good. I was pleasantly surprised by The Deli. We had a great Mediterranean appetizer of hummus, pita and felafel. The chicken matzo ball soup, however, was bland. Salads were excellent as were the french fries and chicken dishes. A highlight was the bar-b-q dipping sauce for the fries.

Deli is a nice stop for a decent sandwich and a nice selection of beer. Open to outside in nice weather so you can peruse the big Penn State mural across the street.

Had the russian imperial stout. Everything tasted good. The steak sandwich, the BLT, the Mac & Cheese. A few more beers to wash it all down.
