I have been a loyal customer of Husky Deli for over 30 years. They offer made to order sandwiches as well as other accompaniments. They make very good soups and their salads are wonderful. There are deli meats and cheeses as well as a lovely assortment of foods from Europe and wines and beers from around the world. Save room... More

I grew up in West Seattle so had to go get Huskies famous licorice ice cream. There is nothing like it. So good. Homemade for more years than I remember. All my brothers worked there at one time or another growing up. I live in AZ now so my visit was a special treat. Same recipe and same great taste.

It's difficult to separate the great family atmosphere and energy from the sandwiches, ice cream, confections, and otherwise hard to find deli items offered here. Very comfortable place to grab lunch and feel like you've gone back in time to a simpler, more relaxed place. I started going here years ago to find odd items to give for Christmas gifts... More

When my husband & I visit our daughter in West Seattle this Deli is always a go to for lunch. Our favorite sandwich is their 12th Man - - a special. The portions are generous and the bread very fresh. The people are very upbeat and friendly. This summer we finally treated ourselves to the ice cream. Now we know... More

Husky Deli seemed like the place to go on warm summer nights in West Seattle - lots of families and kids on break. They offered a cool assortment of unusual groceries too - craft sodas, imported chocolate, biscuits and crackers... if you are having a hard time finding that cookie you fell in love with in Europe, check their shelves....

The homemade ice cream at Husky's is very good. It is a little pricey at $4 for a single scoop cone but serving size was good at least. Good quality ice cream. The store has an old fashioned vibe to it that makes it nice to sit at the counters and eat your ice cream. Service was good. Great location... More

If you are looking for a variety of specialty items, the Husky Deli is the place to go. In addition to their deli items which are delicious, their selection of ice creams, beers and wines are amazing. On warm days it can be crowded but it's worth the wait!

This is always a fun place to go and have some delicious homemade ice cream! The flavors are varied and local to Seattlites along with all the staples (chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry). I've never been there without a line, so make sure you have the patience to wait for a great dessert!

I've had one of the best ice creams if my life in there. They even make the waffle cones themselves and the ice cream choices are awesome, the Butter toasted pecan was so delicious!
