We had such hope for an authentic Jewish Deli. Instead it was Russian Jewish. Didn't enjoy the fare at all. No bagels, no sandwiches piled high with deli meats, just Russian recipes for salads with beets and soups that lacked flavor.

A real Jewish deli in Olympia?! That's right. Good food, an amiable and social atmosphere and very community oriented spot. The Tibor is absolutely delicious (pastrami delight!) There's live music one evening during the week. Loved it!

Amazing place! Their lox is fresh and delicious! They have a great selection of egg salad, potato salad, knish, begels and other Jewish delicacies! Great community feeling. Will be returning for the pickled herring very soon!

My first visit to the new Jewish deli Oly which ain't so new anymore was for breakfast. The place was staffed by a super nice bunch of ladies (owners?) who were happy to answer any questions. My breakfast included a healthy-sized omelette with great fillers,...More

There is no better soup than Matzo (or Matzah) Ball Soup; until you have a disappointing bowl at Kitzel's. I was so sad! It was cold on top of everything else wrong. Wonderful atmosphere; great service. My husband did not like anything about his sandwich;...More

Tuna melt is super yummy on most days! The atmosphere is great. I love the people that work here. A little pricey and they need to perhaps expand their menu but they are new to open and they are really aware of what people like...More
