We read about this deli on Trip Advisor. We had passed by it more times than we can count, knowing nothing about this small, corner deli. We ended up getting carry-out there three times! And each meal was really great! We first tried "The Biltmore" for $6.00, which is turkey breast, lettuce, tomato, Dijon mustard on wheat; then the $6.50... More

We live on our boat at South Haven during the weekends in the summer and don't do much cooking.

I found it very convenient, as it was a short walk from the beach. Good for sandwiches, chips, other snacks and beverages (lite and hard). My Reuben wasn't quite what I was used to. Although it was large, I would have been satisfied with half a sandwich.

The innkeepers at Yelton Manor recommended we get bag lunches from this little store and the sandwiches were fresh and delicious. Ice cream parlor too!

We stopped in to pick up picnic items for lunch. Nice place for just that. Fresh meats, cheese, wine and salads.

We enjoyed staying at the Last Resort Bed and Breakfast and it was almost right across the street from the South Beach. We enjoyed the location and had a nice time at the beach.

This is a wonderful little store--open all year--serving marvelous soup and sandwiches, made to order. Groceries and supplies here too, but it's the sandwiches and Chicago dogs that keep me coming back. It's the only commercial establishment like it on the whole North Side of South Haven.
