The sandwiches are amazing, and the homemade potato salad is my favorite! The employees are always accomodating and offer quick service. My sons favorite is the egg salad, which is also homemade. The prices are very reasonable and love to treat the family and go to the beach and have lunch any time of the year...they are also a full... More

Right around the corner from The Yelton Manor B&B, the wonderful inn we stayed at. We enjoyed a very fresh sandwich and treats for a picnic lunch up the street at the beach.

We tried breakfast here earlier in the summer and said we would not eat there again. We gave it another try on the way to the beach for lunch and we were very happy we stopped. The sandwiches came with a home made side. It was right out of your grandmas kitchen. Breakfast wasn't our favorite but we will come... More

Stopped into this place - one of my favorite haunts- for a breakfast sandwich. Outstanding egg with bacon and Swiss on bagel. And as always wonderful conversation with the staff there. Continue to think So Ha is better for this tiny deli.

Went there for a breakfast sandwich because I heard great reviews. When I watched them pull the "egg" out of a plastic bag from a cooler I was not very excited for my sandwich. As expected sandwich was dry, flavorless. There are much better options in south haven!

Had excellent service, the wine was adequate. We had a varied menu some ordered pizza,others whitefish,pasta Bolognese ,lasagna, lemon chicken. They were very accommodating as someone needed to drop the cake often they weren't open yet they let her drop it off. I would definitely go back.

Memories has sandwiches made to order. Just fill out a form and you can get whatever you desire on your sandwich. You can also choose your own side. I always get pasta salad :) They have great soups too. This is a great place to stop if you are in a hurry. I go here for my lunch break often.... More

Long gone are the days when you could find restaurants aplenty on SH's North Side. But then there's North Side Memories. This narrow storefront deli features delicious sandwiches, beverages and soups including very good homemade chicken noodle. Cold wine. Great staff and service. And (here's my favorite part) they're open year round.

We got delicious sandwiches and made a picnic lunch that we took to the beach just a block away. The food was reasonable in price.

This is such a fun place. Kind of like stepping back in time. Sandwiches were good and location is great for taking lunch to the beach. We went two days in a row.

Description
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.
