Wolfie's Deli

Posted by Staff / Listed on November 21, 2008 / review policy

Wolfie's DeliThe owner of Wolfie's Deli is incredible, talking electronics and cracking open tiny glass bottles of coke from his 1954 pop dispenser. He is ecstatic to serve up massive sandwiches of fatty, melty smoked meat on Styrofoam plates. Past locals return to order double portions with reverence, putting it all away like serious business and quietly noting the unchanged deliciousness. This place makes me feel lucky to live in Toronto.

If your feeling blue, and dont know what to do? Walk inside for a small bite of heaven, and walk out satisfied with a smile. Some places you go for the food, some for the people, im lucky enough to live within walking distance of the best of both. Thank you for all the years of great sandwiches!

My husband introduced me to Wolfies almost five years ago when we started dating and what an experience it is! I salivate as I think of the smoked meat sandwiches. When family comes in from out of town or someone goes to visit them we have to make sure they have their Wolfies. Great food, great people.

Seriously, a half a pound of meat per sandwich, must be why you get extra rye, to make 2 sandwiches out of one. We had trouble eating it all, and it was sooo good. Would have liked the pastrami a little spicier, but that's us. I think they like Coca-Cola, everywhere you looked was Coke memorabilia, takes me back to earlier times. The service was excellent and friendly, told Danny I used to work for a competitor when I was a kid, he knew it well. Will definitely return on our next trip into Toronto. For the quality of food, atmosphere and price, I highly recommend Wolfies.

Not just the best deli BUT the nicest people.
A great combination; they know you when you walk in, and the food is a bonus.
Great steamed smoked meat (medium) piled high on doubled rye bread. This is just what a deli should be like; plain tables and great conversation.
I miss Wolfe and his wife. However, David and Gila are doing a great job carrying on the tradition.
