I was following the crowd thinking I would find a great place for breakfast/lunch on a Saturday. My plan worked and it led me to Downtown Deli, large selection of breakfast and lunch entries and by the crowd this was the place to go. Service was good and the food better than average.

Stopped in on Columbus Day for breakfast. Food was good and lots of options. Waitress had a hard time getting the 4 of us our requested beverages and meals. Overall good.

Probably one of the BEST sandwiches I have ever eaten. I had the special- grilled chicken, pesto mozzarella cheese and tomatoes( 1.00 extra for tomatoes) I have eaten in many places, yet this was truly heaven!

Just a block away from Steam Town Mall, this shop is the place to grab a great bite. Specialty sandwiches and wraps generously portioned, as were other plates seen being delivered to the many tables inside and out. Inside can get a bit loud, but this just adds to the experience. Homemade macaroni salad comes with your sandwich, but can... More

Stopped in with friends to grab a quick bite. I had what could have been the best BLT I've ever had!! Along with a side of delicious macaroni salad. Great for sandwiches or hot lunch or breakfast. Eat in or sit outside.

My husband and I stopped in Scranton because I LOVE The Office! We are at Downtown Deli, and it was OUTSTANDING! We had breakfast, and it filled us up for a tedious drive to Connecticut. I had the seven grain French toast with bacon, pecans, mascarpone cheese, and a caramel drizzle! Yum!!! My husband had a western omelette with added... More

I had the Chicken Parmesan Sandwich, and I don't think I'll ever regret it. It was the best I've ever had. The baguette was crispy and the chicken well cooked - perfect in its entirety. The staff was kind and the atmosphere was nice. 10/10.
