Zaftig’s is a classic deli with a wide menu. The menu is breakfast and lunch. The lunch portions are generous and the pickles are a real treat. I love the pastrami and no one in my group has any issues. We didn’t try the gluten-free...More

Joan & Ed's Deli used to be located here and I really miss them. They actually served food. It took me two visits to realize that Zaftig's does not. Their Reuben sandwiches are full of tough, stringy meat. Their hummus plate was practically inedible and...More

This restaurant is just wonderful, great food that is often hard to find or generally has to be home made. Friendly service and good coffee

I go here because the Jewish food options are comfort food for me but everyone I go with also very much enjoys their meals. There is a lot of options and something for everyone

I love having lunch at breakfast or vise-versa. This place serves everything all day long (except alcohol before noon on Sundays). I highly recommend this place. I also got the Boston Crème Pie to go. It was delicious. It gets busy but I didn't see...More

Service was a bit slow, with no apparent reason. We were there early on a Sunday before the tables were full. But, it was worth the weight. I had the stuffed french toast (delicious) and my companion had the salami and eggs. The art and...More

I enjoy the atmosphere in Zaftig's and want to like it there... so every time we get a bad meal there, it is really disappointing. My hope in writing bad reviews is that the restaurant take notice and does better next time. Here it is......More
