Featured in the Palm Beach Post May 25, 2016:
Deli fare, including soups, salads, wraps, sandwiches, burgers, melts, hot dogs. Dinners tend toward comfort food, such as meatloaf, stuffed cabbage, shepherd’s pie, pot roast. Desserts are fabulous, with a strawberry shortcake recently added to the menu. Breakfast is also served daily.
It’s a deli, with lots of booths and tables crowded together. Expect to be tempted by the dessert case as you head to the dining room.
OUR FAVORITE FOOD/PRICE
I started with a cup of chicken noodle soup ($3.99), which is among the best I have ever eaten. Lots of chicken, noodles and vegetables in a tasty broth. I ordered a new menu item, the Palm Beach Club ($9.79). The sandwich was stuffed with turkey and ham, along with lettuce, tomato and bacon. It’s assembled on challah, making it above the ordinary club sandwich.
Steak fries were served on the side. The sandwich was cut in quarters, and I was full after eating only two of them. Dessert was chocolate layer cake ($4.79), a generous portion, which somehow I managed to devour.
REASON TO GO
It’s a perfect place for great food and conversation.
Adequate, but I had to flag down the server to get a refill of my water.
Very noisy — what deli isn’t? There was a lot of gabbing going on while we were dining, but it did not intrude on conversation at our table.
Yes, kids will find a menu with lots of favorites, including mac and cheese, grilled cheese, burgers and chicken tenders.
