Kaufman's Bagel & Delicatessen
They have Browns soda here! Try the celery flavor its surprisingly good.
Barley soups are great. Love their onion rolls!
Better since they reopened
Probably the best deli on the north shore. Great customer service and their selection of cold cuts (from Romanian) and their bakery are top notch. Also open Saturdays!
Get The Uncle Lenny! It's huge!
their new york special made me cry.
Excellent roast beef sandwich on a kaiser roll. Great prices.
I love this place and have been coming for years, but since they reopened, I can't get out of here in under 30min. Really slow.
Best bagels on the north shore
Amazing deli sandwiches and selections of meat and pastries. Their sandwiches are big in size so come hungry. Friendly staff yet crowded on weekends. Make sure to get a Numbered Ticket for service.
Pastrami, pickles. Want to try their matzoh ball soup.
Pay extra for lean or extra lean meat if you don't love fatty CB or brisket.
They have the best corned beef!
The bagels are good with cream cheese.
Unless you're really old and have time to wait 20 minutes to have your bagel toasted, don't bother. Horrible service. Feel like I was reverse aged discriminated.
The young and old enjoy the just-baked bagels, spreads and pickles (there are separate barrels for old pickles and new pickles, just to give you an idea of how serious they are about dills).
Time Out Chicago
You can't go wrong with any sandwich, deli treat, pastry, seriously everything is amazing! My favorite is the Looney Tuna, it will change your definition of what a Tuna sandwich is
When you walk in, the numbers are to your right by the front door. When they call your number you better be ready to order!
