This is a good spot to catch some music on the outdoor patio, grab a sandwich and have a beer or some wine with friends. I wouldn't order the cheese plate as it's just 4 types of deli sliced cheese that would go on a...More

We bought beer here after already eating somewhere else so we unfortunately didn't get to try the food but the menu was full of sandwiches that sounded great!

This is one of my favorite places to eat. Although other dishes are available, the sandwiches remain my favorite. With good food and portions, it is no surprise that this is a busy and popular place to eat lunch.

Great place for specialty sandwiches and drinks like a full-flavored Reuben or Muffuletta and delicious domestic and specialty beers. However, it is also a wonderful, safe place to bring your kids or grandchildren for a grill-cheese and soda. Eat in doors and enjoy the sights...More

I only think Diplomat is ok. Tables are small,' chairs are uncomfortable and sandwiches are ok. Great wine and beer store and pretty good soup. If I am in the area I will go but, to me, it's not really special. No fountain soft drinks....More

This is a great locally owned deli and shop. I've lived in Birmingham for several years and not even heard much about it. Pretty busy during lunch, but they got everyone in and out quickly. Looks like you can buy meats, breads, beer, wine, etc....More
