Absolutely love their homemade breads!!!! My husband loves their Reuben and I had a pesto chicken sandwich. The highlight of the meal was the fruit platter we shared. The restaurant itself is very nice with lots to look at. Staff was very helpful and nice. We will be going back.

I really enjoyed the Country Ranch sandwich. It was delicious and like nothing I'd ever had. The atmosphere is cozy and friendly. I was by myself, while my husband had meetings, so I had plenty of time to read the writing on the walls. I will be taking my husband back to experience this one of a kind restaurant.

We all loved what we got! The girls were into the corned beef sandwiches (Ruben) and the raved on about them. I had the vegetarian white-bean and parmesan soup with sourdough, as well as some pickles, and it was all great. Prices were really cheap by USA standards. A really great little place. The place is very unusual in its... More

The Yellow Deli is a great spot for an amazing lunch. We had the Veggie Burger, a build your own Turkey and Cheddar Wheat and the Butternut Squash Soup. The Draft Root Beer was served in an ice cold mug and quite delicious. The service was informative and friendly. The carrot cake and a cup of coffee was a perfect... More

Ate dinner here with our family for dinner. The atmosphere is beautiful and unique. The food is too. They have sandwiches, soups, desserts, salads but they are all wonderful. Take home some bread when you leave!

Family who live in Chattanooga took us here for an early dinner. This is a very unique place. Hippy vib, great selection of sandwiches, soups, and salads. I got the Yellow Submarine, it was great especially the dressing! Recommend this place if you're in the area.

The Yellow Deli is quaint-looking and old fashioned. The food is delicious and the service is excellent. The prices are reasonable and very convenient, being so close to UTC, students can afford to eat there. I took my nephew there for lunch and paid about $15 for 2 meals. They have a menu on their website and it includes the... More

The warm bread and cheese on the sandwiches was melt in our mouth delicious! I loved the hippie atmosphere. The back porch was so relaxing. The cheesecake with strawberries on top was also really good.
