Read a review about the carrot cake and stopped in. Very good, with fresh roasted coffee in the old style big cream colored mugs, fun venue. You've got to do this. Sweetie and Rascal Pants

Enjoyed the Tuscan Chicken Sandwich both times I've been to Anacortes and eaten at the Gere-A-Deli. It is by far my favorite sandwich anywhere. Mmm....

Fun ambience; pleasant staff; varied selections available; lots of sandwiches & salads. We ordered a bowl of chili and a sesame chicken salad; both were disappointing. The chili pot/container (you serve yourself) had the name Sysco on it. Sysco is a food distributor in the USA with a poor reputation for good quality products; basically nothing organic. The sesame chicken... More

Sandwiches are large, tasty and fresh. I like the "Some Like It Hot" on French bread. The brownies and other desserts are all home made and really good. From the awards on the wall it doesn't look like they have placed below Best Sandwich (Deli) place

Best Carrot Cake Ever! It is worth the long wait in line. Once you eat here you will see why I would have waited even longer!!!! The sandwich was so good.

Got off the ferry and we needed a quick lunch before heading to Seattle, the food was good. The sandwiches were good and the desserts looked great too.

Stood in line for a to-go order, since it was a beautiful day, but well worth the wait! Very generous portions, freshly made, and friendly counter people! Try the Tuscan chicken sandwich - delish!

Had lunch here with friends. Food was good, but the salads were almost too big. They offer 1/2 sandwiches, need to do the same for salads! I don't like wasting food, but couldn't finish the salad, was fresh and excellent though!! Great "everything" cookies - 1 is enough for three people!!!

We stopped by at around 1:30 and were able to order and get a table. It sounds like this place can get pretty busy. We had ordered the Rueben and Cobb salad. The Rueben sandwich has to be one of my favorites, that being said the Rueben here was probably one of the best. There was plenty of corned beef,... More
