Fresh, fast, friendly! I really enjoy a quality meal at a mom-and-pop deli/diner. Fabulous selection, and happy people at every turn.

We found this place by accident and glad we did. It's a deli with great sandwiches and potato salad. I had the club on a croissant and my husband had the New Yorker which is a triple size Rueben. Both were delish and we enjoyed chatting with the owner who is super friendly! A gem.

In Richmond for World Cycling Championships and came upon this deli right on the course. Nice selection of sandwiches and excellent slices of cake- recommend the German chocolate in particular. Now open on Saturdays from 11-3 and for bike race week only Sundays too. The owner had put several tables on the sidewalk right next to the race route.

I had the Ham & Bean soup which was great and Italian Coldcut. Everytime I took a bite of the Coldcut, I would get stuck by either fat or grizzle... More

Not only do they offer a complete array of meats, cheese, and breads, but the gift tins of nuts and brittle will be greatly appreciated by whoever is lucky enough to receive one from you. The owner is onsite and working the cash register, and be sure to check out the world map full of pins locating the birthplaces of... More

I stopped here so I could get a wrap for my ride home. I ordered a turkey wrap with cheese, lettuce and tomato. I started thinking while I waited "why did I just order a boring turkey wrap." I should have ordered something else. It's going to be plain and boring". The turkey was delicious! Even though it was nothing... More
