This is a very nice, family friend deli located in the NW area. There are a lot of selections, and ideal for a large group with different dietary needs. Parking isn't a problem, and the staffs are very friendly. Sitting can be challenging sometimes.

This place is an excellent combination of delicatessen store and a restaurant. Great choice of fine cheeses and salamis. All the merchandise is beautifully displayed. Huge selection of soups and sandwiches along with hot dishes. The staff is very friendly. Great bar with wine and beer. And also a nice little section of elegantly packed and presented gifts.

Thank Karina A
