Centre Street Deli

Centre Street DeliCentre Street Deli's location (It's in Thornhill) and entirely nondescript exterior renders the chaos inside sudden and miraculous. Centre Street is huge and colourful with a busy and diverse crowd of regulars, loyal and at ease. The meat is hand cut by default and even the menu urges you to go for the fatty variant of their popular old-fashioned pastrami and corned beef.

This place is by far the best deli in the city. Long line-ups around lunchtime and weekends. The Montreal Smoked Meat is IMO the best I've had, compared to the best of what Toronto has to offer. I'll keep going for years to come.

Old-fashioned smoke meat is so good I ordered a platter and chased it with a stand-alone sandwich. Awesome.

Great spot, great smoked meat, and you can order a stack to take home for the next time you have to host Sunday Brunch! A bit expensive for just a sandwich ($8), but a pretty damn good sandwich at that...

We moved from Toronto and have never found another deli that Rivals this. On every visit we eat lnch there and the Old Fashioned is to die for.

Thankfully this place is just down the street from me. I frequent it about once a month. It ain't cheap but well worth the money. Always get the old fashioned montreal (not lean) and ask for double rye. Really good homemade soups. The lentil soup is incredible and i always get their greek salad to split with a buddy.

Center Street deli has been my go to deli since they opened. Its our first stop when we get into Thornhill every month. Their pea soup is amazing but the star of the show is there old style smoked meat and Karnutzel. Sheryl if you are reading this keep up the good work. Thornhill would not be the same without your restaurant.
