Delancey Steet - Deli & Bagels




On the southwest side of Ocala there are numerous retirement communities which contain thousands of people, many of them migrating to this area from New York or elsewhere in the northeast where it's cold and snowy during the winter.

These are people who are used to and very fond of delicatessens which offer a variety of bagels and lox and meats and breads and other such.

Up until recently, we had no delicatessens on the southwest side of Ocala.  That led to a certain amount of grumbling, especially among old-timers in barber shops, in thrift stores, and on golf courses.

Then, all of a sudden, Delancey Street showed up.  Delancey Street was soon followed by Darrell's Diner (with two locations).  Now, not only do we have a diner, but we have several to choose from.  It's heavenly!

Delancey Street is featured in this post and is located in a small shopping center within walking distance of the famed On Top of the World Community.

I hope they're GOOD delis. The very best delis prepare their own stuff and it's been years since I've found a really good one. None like Skipper's on Judah Street in San Francisco...and my grandmother made the last really, really good pickles.

Good coffee? That's where I'd start.

I love a good bagel.

Good to see the area expanding, I notice they are recruiting new staff here too.

Can't beat a good deli! I love the black and white floor.

It does look like a nice place. Hope the food is as good.

The Delancey St Deli looks like a great place for lunch or a light snack. Our nearest Deli is in Omaha or Minneapolis. There are sandwich shops here, but it's not the same.

Yep, bagels are popular at my house north of Toronto. How nice that you can now enjoy them too. ;)

The Italian grocery shop I go to for lunch and dinner probably does half their business by the deli counter in terms of meats, cheese, and sandwiches. The interior of this place reminds me of a bakery up here, though.

I am quite fond of delicatessen, so count me in: I like this place!

Bibi said...

A good delicatessen is hard to find, and so is a really good bagel. Make mine with lox and cream cheese.

A fairly new one just opened very near me - great food!! ;-))

Delancy Street Deli sounds very authentic! I think I'd like it. :)

Oh no. Oh no no no the mere thought of a bagel makes me put on weight!

Love places like this. Always the sort of restaurant we head for when we visit the West Coast for the best food ever.

Jack said...

That would make a lot of folks happy.

Nice captures but where are the people?

Are these owners the same as Delancey in Seattle, I wonder? (I left a message for you on my post today —Friday about smart phones). Have I told you how much I LOVE your profile photo?!
