I stopped by The Yellow Deli on my way to the Vista botanical gardens this day. This restaurant has a nice patio area with gardens in the front and two floors of tables inside. They mostly serve sandwiches, I was surprised at how busy it was for such a limited menu but apparently the thing to get here is their herbal teas and desserts. I had their rueben which was alright, but I would recommend instead trying their sweet potato pound cake as everyone seemed to be ordering it. Overall impression was this place didn’t deserve the great online ratings it received, rather it just has a lack of competition in the small town.
Date destination? I wouldn’t recommend this place for a date rather maybe a leisurely lunch (their service is slow). Be warned, over the weekend they get quite busy and a wait is common. They don’t have the variety in their menu to accommodate different food plans or preferances to keep your date happy.
