Although the "hot dog" sign in the window kept my expectations in check, we were really impressed with the breakfast options at this very casual, eccentric Mexican influenced spot. We enjoyed a delicious veggie scramble and huevos rancheros under a portrait of Our Lady of Guadalupe on the covered patio. Everything is a little off kilter which is we liked.

We planned to rent bikes and take a picnic lunch along so we went to Cannery Row Deli and got sandwiches to go, chips and drinks. The service was friendly and fast. The sandwiches were excellent: the french rolls were very fresh, and filled with lots of fresh meat, cheese, etc.They used baby spinach instead of iceberg lettuce, which I... More

We like to eat local when travelling. A Google search located this and it seemed to have everything that we were looking for, which was sandwiches and salads. It's very cramped but was not busy when we ate so we had plenty of room. Parties with more than 4 will not be able to sit together. Be careful when ordering... More

It can be hard to find food that is not totally geared to tourists in a tourist area and Cannery Row Deli meets that need. Not fancy but good selection and fast service and reasonably priced for the area. For lunch one day, we had lemon garlic grilled chicken sandwich which we ate at a table there. On the day... More

We wanted a fresh sandwich after the aquarium but didn't feel like battling the crowds down in the tourist area right outside. This was about a 5 minute walk but so worth it! The sandwiches were fresh and super delicious! Plus it has a cute outdoor area at the back of the deli to sit and eat in. We loved... More

Loved this place when we were travelling. Did exactly what you wanted the way you wanted it. It was delicious! Not many places do food like this and it just hit the spot.

I stopped here out of curiosity and hunger more that anything else. I sampled their hot pastrami sandwich on a wheat roll and found it to be good and kind of run of the mill all in all.

Stopped by in the AM to grab a couple of sandwiches for the road. Orders were fulfilled quickly with a smile. Employee even held door for us as we left. Sandwich sizes were generous and were well priced, especially for the area. Tasty and right near the bike path and a few hotels. If looking for a quick, reasonably priced... More
