“A great neighborhood spot”
Reviewed January 7, 2012

This deli has all the elements of a great neighborhood spot, good food, decent prices, smiling staff, and a slate of regulars (some with their dogs) who are greeted by name. Breakfast choices include fresh fruit and baked goods, but the standout here are the bagels, generously sized and satisyingly chewy slathered with butter or peanut butter or one of the freshly made varieties of cream cheeses on display. For hearter appetites, the deli offers bagels topped with eggs, cheese, or your choice of meat. Lunch includes a wide variety of sandwich toppings on your choice of bagel or bread and some very tasty hot soups. You can also order many items by the pound. And they serve Boars Head meats. Sundays find regulars lined up for breakfast or enjoying their papers inside or outside (when the weather is fine). Nice weather brings dog owners and their dogs enjoying the sidewalk dining. People conncect over their dogs (so far, all nicely behaved) and share friendly conversations from table to table. Elected representatives may be found here as well, meeting their constituents. With its good food, relaxed atmosphere, and great location, Main Street Bgel Deli is a community favorite.
