Great Deli for Midtown. Prices are reasonable for most non-buffet things including Salad. I pay $8.66 for a great salad that would cost $11+ elsewhere. Staff is friendly once they know you. BUTTTT....... Credit Cards! I used to only have an Amex card which they dont take so I ended up getting a Visa as well (not just for this) . Today I went in to find they raised their CC minimums from $3 to $ 5 for breakfast, $7 to $10 for lunch. WIth most breakfasts costing under $5 and most lunches under $10 its a schemey way to move to cash only. I don't know what their transaction fees are for CC's but that's the cost of doing business. I guess management decided they would rather lose my business than earn a smaller profit on my $8.66 salad which cost them no more than a buck or two to make in the first place. Theres too much competition out there lose a loyal customer over what probably amounts to a few pennies per transaction. *I get it that bars do this. Someone could do 5+ CC transactions in one day there if they buy one drink at a time. To pay the fee 5+ times is stupid, but for a deli who doesnt get constant business from the same person in one day, its a bad business model!

I have to say that the food is good. They can be a little on the pricey side. What really bothers me is the customer service. Every time I go in the morning the guys behind the deli are so miserable. It's really just one guy (he looks like the main worker in that area). He is so rude. Every single time without fail he has a pissed off look on his face and he's snippy, rude, doesn't bother to look at his customers and is just... rude. I know people have circumstances but I always say... If you don't like your job, QUIT. Honestly...it's not fair to the customers that pay for their service. We aren't coming in there to beg you for free food, we are paying you. Without us customers; you don't have a job. So be grateful & nice. There's no need to take it out on your customers. Especially first thing in the morning; why ruin someone else's day with your bad vibe? On a professional level, I don't think some business owners understand how some employees really hinder their business. I really hope someone at this place reads this review & really revaluates who they are putting behind a counter & putting on a payroll.

Food quality here is decent if a little overpriced. Not bad variety either. Problem is owner and staff. Guys behind deli are OK but cashiers are like the soup nazi on seinfeld. They like to argue with customers and throw them out. Did that to my friend- a regular customer for 2 years.
