Fast service, friendly staff. Excellent food. Large selection of sandwiches. Fresh hot soups. Plenty of seating both inside and out. Place your order, and they bring it to your table. You will not go away hungry.

Hi Gary, we're so grateful that you'd take the time to leave the Hornets Nest Deli such a great review. It means a lot to us to hear that the soup and sandwich combo was a hit! We hope to see you again.

Best place to grab sandwiches to take away for lunch, staff all very friendly and helpful, We used this a lot when working at Branford and I would definitely recommend.

We stopped here for a great breakfast. The pancakes were fluffy as I like them, two large pieces. And they got me with their home fries, a flavory reminiscence of the greek origin of Ashley, our super friendly and smiling waitress. Thank you!

If you don't have a big appetite, then here's your place. Don't expect a huge breakfast for the buck. You get just enough and that's it. Service has been very slow in my experience with coffee not being ready. It's just ok.

Not the same sub as Subway, so a big plus for something different. Fast and clean. Larger than Subway, so there's places to sit, even an outdoor area. Recommend.

Stopped in this morning at the new location and love what they did to the place. This is my must stop while in Branford. Prices seem high to other places I go while around the state but it is Branford and won't necessarily stop me...More
