I visited Brownstein's last week, and was served by a very friendly owner who gave me some of their delicious whitefish spread and a couple of great bagels. It's a very friendly, neighborhood-like store with great home-cooked foods. I highly recommend it.

We discovered they make their own pumpernickel bread, and have been regulars ever since. Deli meats are always fresh, and the side salads are always flavorful. Owner Irwin is always a pleasure to deal with.

Perfection. Loved it and reasonably priced for a lox and cream cheese on a bagel. Strictly take out. Call ahead and they will have it ready for you. Cash or check only.
