  • The thing that makes this place is the people. While eating my sandwich, I heard the owners ask two or three customers "How's your wife doing?" or "Is so-and-so back from wherever?". They care about their customers, and they care about the food they serve them. The food itself is of good quality (straightforward deli-style), but nothing to call home about. Please give these people your business!

  • We came in for the breakfast, but we were too slow so we went for lunch, and we were blown away by the quality of the food. Husband made all sorts of noises as he devoured the Reuben sampler. My grilled chicken salad was amazing, and loved the frieS!

  • Since this is right down the street from my apartment, I mainly go here for deli meat or a quick sammich and matzo ball soup for lunch when I am in the mood. Although their deli prices are a little more than Giant Eagle, the quality is much better. The customer service I've had so far is excellent and everyone is very friendly. If you haven't tried this place, I would highly recommend making a stop here.

  • I'm surprised to see all the hating on this deli. I like it. They have really good sandwiches. Nothing fancy, just traditional deli food. They pile it on, the meat is good quality, the potato salad is delicious, and I have had only friendly service. It is not cheap nor do I think it is a rip off. It is in a convenient location for me and a solid standby when I'm hungry and looking for a quick meal.

  • Your options here are not limited to just deli meats and a few side salads. Stop by for breakfast/lunch and try the classics like pancakes, corn beef n hash, and the Rueben. Sit in the window or at one of the few tables, and take in the liveliness of the place and N Craig St. You won't be disappointed... Basic deli meats are a 2-3$ dollars more expensive (likely higher quality) than Giant Eagle but their specialty homemade items are worth trying. Also have a few pastries, nontraditional sodas (boylan, Mash), and other snacks that you can't necessarily find at 7-eleven.

  • Awhile ago I had corn beef hash for breakfast there, and it was very good. Today I went back for it, and it was totally disaster. The girl at the counter kept talking with other people about her new car for 5 minutes before she took my order, and then she went back to talking for another 5 minutes before she actually took my order to the kitchen. I ordered corn beef hash for here, and she brought me back a to-go. No big deal. Maybe she just does not want to see my face. However, when I went to my office and opened the box, I felt more than disappointed. There was barely any meat in the dish and it is very very very greasy. Everything was burned, green pepper, bread and the meat. Luckily, the scrambled egg still looked like scrambled egg. I felt disgusted afterwards.

  • The catering service is great. In each box lunch, there are little compartmentalized fresh fruit, potato salad, and brownie sides, and your choice of a sandwich. The person who delivers also helps to set up the food. These service beats Jimmy John's any day!

  • Good sandwich selections. I had the Rachel (corned beef with coleslaw) along with a side of potato salad. The Russian sauce they put on the sandwich is a little on the sweet, but I think it worked well. The potato salad is also very eggy and a little sweeter than normal, but I didn't mind. The staff was friendly and my food came in a timely manner.

  • I am really picky when it comes to eating out, but I absolutely adore this place. Best corned beef sandwiches EVER! I always get the triple decker #4 without the chopped liver with a side order of latkas with apple sauce and sour cream. Delicious! However, I wished that they would have kept their old latka recipe. I have been away from Pittsburgh for years now and I truly miss their food!

  • Good sandwiches, good deli meats, but very overpriced.

  • food is good but it is overpriced and management is rude.

  • Wow this place is expensive! I got a veggie sandwich and small salad... for $12!!! WHAAAA. It wasn't bad tho... too much hummus, but not bad.

  • This is a nice deli to drop by for a sandwich during lunch. The Deli is located further away than many other delis/sandwich shops in Oakland, so the Deli is not packed with college students during lunch hour; rather, it has a mixture of older professionals and some students. There is a television located in the dine-in section, so you can catch up on the day's news.

  • I love this place!Sandwiches and soups are cooked in a home-style cooking with heart. And the taste definitely worth this price, without mentioning their prices are inexpensive already.

  • Great lunch and breakfast sandwiches, and they have an interesting (in a good way) selection of bottled and canned drinks. Really clean, and service is great. Seems family owned.

  • Stopped in here for a quick lunch meeting today. Had the special, a BLT wrap, which came with some chips and a coke. The staff was friendly, the food came quick and the prices were a bit high, but not unreasonable. They have a seating area, which is nice for a deli/bodega. The wrap was very good and just right portion wise.
