I love this place for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Don't miss the fabulous salad trio plate and load it up with tuna, egg, whitefish and maybe chicken salad? Love the half sandwich and soup or salad plate for lunch---what a bargain. Breakfast--don't miss the cinnamon roll pancakes. Loads of food, great value and most of all--that NY deli taste. Uhmmmm.

My favorite go to place for NYC Deli in Palm Springs. Price increase on all sandwich items recently but still a great value. Menu for breakfast and lunch is extensive and there is always item choices to please all. Ample parking and if you are a first time visitor use waze or map quest to find the diner.

This restaurant was right next to our resort so we decided to give it a try. They have a huge menu selection so you can find just about anything you'd be looking for. The service was really good and the food was good as well. We dined there several times for breakfast and were not disappointed. They also have a... More

Visited Manhattan in the Dessert last night for dinner. Wonderful authentic deli. Food was fantastic. Shared a Tri-salad platter with my husband. Chicken Salad, Tuna Salad, Chopped Liver--comes with potato salad & cole slaw. We shared because he wanted to try the fried kreplach (seemed more like an empanadas). Even with sharing there was plenty of food. We will be... More

We were in need of a big, hearty meal after Coachella and Manhattan delivered! Pastrami sandwiches, tuna salad, pancakes, matzo ball soup - everything was great. Excellent service too. A bit out of the way but worth the drive.

We went for a weekday lunch and were seated immediately. Because of the heat, we opted for an indoor booth rather than one of the outdoor tables. Our server was very pleasant and table service was prompt. I ordered the pastrami on light rye. The pastrami was excellent and was a sizable portion. The only shortcoming was the rye bread... More

Ordered salads three nights running. Each time the waiter/waitress was attentive, food was excellent, and service was excellent. Recommend if looking for home style or New York type deli food. Will return on the next trip to Palm Springs.
