  • Great place to grab a bite after a Flywheel class
  • Tel-Aviv Tommya half-pound Frankwurst wrapped in pastrami. Or try the Old F-7: two kosher hot dogs on a hoagie roll with grilled salami and cheese.
  • Work Week breakfast specials are a great deal. 2 Eggs, Home Fries Toast & Coffee for $3.95. The nova, eggs, & onions is also delicious and discounted from 7am-10am Monday through Friday.
  • Name changed to schlessingers this week. Menu slightly different but pickles still rule
  • The pickle bar is boss. Pastrami was just ok. Shoulda had a Reuben.
  • Gigantic soups, sandwiches, and a pickle bar. Service is sassy but friendly and the price is right. It aint NYC, but its as good as youll get in Philly.
  • Listed on The 15 Best Places for Kosher Food in Philadelphia. Here's a big clue : They serve meat and cheese sandwiches which is NOT kosher.
  • Where Caviar failed, Schlessinger's went above and beyond. Amazing customer service from Jade (?) and good food. Highly recommend the burger and the apple cake.
  • Still great food, especially on cold winter days. The staff is very friendly, escpecially Amanda and Sara #mrawesomephl #philly
  • Very good food, Best corned beef in Philly

  • Awesome pickle bar.
  • Open face tuna melt is heavenly
  • Matzo Balls were OK, corned beef was perfect, black and white cookies were heavenly.
  • The pickle ball was great. Love the roast beef!
  • Split pea soup ranks number one of restaurants I have tried thus far. Get ths soup and half sandwhich which is just right and not overfilling. Both pastrami and turkey specials were great.
