Don’t be in a hurry if you’re planning to visit this New York-style deli owned by the Klein’s. It’s always packed, and there’s often a queue waiting for a table to free up.
This is bagel and latke heaven, both for breakfast and lunch. One of the most popular items on the menu, and deservedly so, is the breakfast bagel with egg, cheese, tomato and lamb bacon – a deliciously crispy alternative to the more traditional porcine version. Also scrumptious is the latke benedict – crunchily firm potato pancakes topped by two poached eggs and a creamy Hollandaise sauce; with optional extras like smoked salmon. Hot pastrami on rye is an excellent lunch choice with smoky homemade mustard adding piquancy to the meat. The chicken soup, either with noodles or a matzo ball, is good enough to make even the most ardent Jewish mama nod in approval. Finish with the New York cheesecake with choc mint crust – richly decadent with a hint of tartness preventing sensory overload.
The coffee is excellent; the green juice legendary; and the Bloody Mary Elixir a bracing pick-me-up after a busy Friday night. There are two red and two white wines, but from reputable producers like Warwick and Tokara, and moderately priced by the bottle and the glass.
Friendly and efficient.
It’s a tiny, chic, space with colour added by the art on the walls and by a cosmopolitan clientele.
A leisurely light meal with good friends with great people-watching opportunities.
