Whenever our friends visit from the Orlando area they request having lunch or dinner at Canters. The quality and quantity of the sandwiches are only topped by the large selection of pastries that we selected before leaving

After my nephew's first public piano recital performance, we celebrated with a meal at Canter's Deli. We were seated at "President Obama's table." Our omelettes, burgers, chicken fingers, mac & cheese, fries, potato pancakes were delicious and served in a timely manner.
