Whether it is lunch for 2 or catering for 100+, Urban Deli never disappoints. Great, fresh food and great service from the staff. The Meatloaf sandwich and the Cordon Bleu sandwich are favourites.

A friend and I were here November 16th. Food was very good. Service was good too. Place is a little small and the hours are limited but well worth the trip when you do get a seat and a meal.

Thank you for your question. I believe you are asking if Urban Deli will open for dinner? At this point we are not. The Urban Deli remains at 68 King Street and will likely close the same time as now (we'll keep you... More

Well my husband and I had appointments in Saint John and hunted through trip advisor for a 4-5 star place to eat and found the urban deli on it, we finally found parking along the busy king street and walked our way down king street with excitement to the restaurant only to find at 4 that it was closed . It would be a good idea to post the hours on trip advisor so that this doesn't happen to other people, then we made our way back up the street to the Egyptian cuisine place and found that it was closed as well, when we asked the locals for a good place to eat they pointed us to a food court for McDonald's inside the mall . That was sad, we went to finally eat at the Chinese place inside the mall and were extremely disappointed at the lack of culinary skills of the cook . People that travel want to know that a place is open especially after they gps it across the city . Just a suggestion urban Deli :-)

Urban Deli lives up to it's tag line of 'old fashioned. Slightly sophisticated'. We love to put a spin on some favourite old fashioned dishes like our popular meatloaf sandwich. We have the deli classics like Montreal Smoked Meat and our popular Reuben Sandwich. Urban Deli was featured on the Canadian Food Network's 'You Gotta Eat Here' featuring our Muffuletta & Uptown Big Beef Bad Boy sandwiches and our famous lemon sour cream pie, which has travelled as far as Alberta & Ontario. We also offer catering for lunch or private functions. If you are craving something other than deli, see Italian by Night for our authentic Tuscan Style Italian menu for dinner.
