Simply the best place to eat when you are hungry. The food is fresh and the portions are very generous. The place is always packed but one can always find a seat! Staff is super friendly and it is a local hang out. I always recommend GERE-a-DELI to my friends and family!

One of my favorite places to eat in Anacortes. The meatloaf sandwich is fantastic, as are their daily soups.they are always busy but the service is quick. Great atmosphere with old signs on the walls. Everything I have had has been delicious and I have been here often!

Wonderful carrot cake with not too sweet frosting. We also got mango chicken pasta salad for a picnic at beautiful Washington Park

Best place in Anacortes for lunch. Don't forget to get a brownie. Most of the salads are amazing. Usually busy as heck though. That's half the fun

This place is an institution in Anacortes. It is really popular with the locals. You have to wait in line to order and then find a table and they bring it to you. The rotating soups are popular.

I've been here a couple times, once at breakfast and once at lunch. Both were excellent. Lunchtime is busy, full of locals so you know it is good. Breakfast was awesome, two of us split a breakfast sandwich on ciabatta bread, that plus coffee made our morning. This is a really good, unpretentious, friendly deli in a cool old building.... More

Gere-a-deli has been a local favorite for over thirty years. At lunch, around 1130am, no matter what day it is, there is a line to the door. So arrive before or after the lunch rush. They have a great selection of sandwiches, salads, soups and baked goods, and old-timey sodas. I really like the Fidalgo Island salad with walnuts, raisins,... More
