One sandwich is enough or two seniors . Really great sandwiches, and fries are terrific. Go early place gets filled early.

Would not have looked twice if I hadn't read reviews and it was great. Homemade chicken noodle soup and Reuben sandwich which my husband and i split, planning to have dessert (which looked wonderful) but were too full even sharing.

House made bread piled with tender meat. Portions generous enough to share. Huge sodas. No one can accuse this deli of skimping on portions. We stopped in for lunch on a rainy Saturday and were absolutely delighted. We left stuffed and happy, carrying our bag of leftover sandwiches. A true old-fashioned deli. Downtown Olympia is a delight, and 5th Avenue... More

Was there at the end of August around lunch time. The service, food and atmosphere were great. My homemad soup and homemade bread were fab. Then I treated myself to a homemade berry pie ala mode.

An absolutely wonderful experience and a fabulous chocolate shop across the street. Downtown, so you get to experience the homeless, sad on many levels! Do not let that detract from a sandwich shop that is bigger than most restaurants. They make most of their own bread, seem to have a huge takeout business, offered us excellent service and primo food!... More
