If you can't get to the deli in-person, you can still order its eats for delivery.

Hand-sliced smoked meat sandwiches are what the restaurant is known for.

Hand-sliced, Montreal-style smoked meat sandwiches are the establishment's specialty, served fatty and no-nonsense between light rye with simple sides like fries, slaw and, of course, a pickle, but there are tons of other things on the menu, too.

Corned beef, tongue, roast turkey, salami and stuffed chicken are among their 10 hot meat deli sandwich selections, with burgers, hot dogs, club sandwiches, BLTs and more also available.

Classic soups, salads and more are also available to order.

Then there are soups — the matzah ball is a fan favourite — salads, omelettes, latkes, and other homestyle fare, all as delicious as it is unpretentious, made from scratch to order and served right to your door if you order through SkipTheDishes.
