Most of us go to Benjies for the restaurant, but did you know that we actually have a full deli? A wide selection of our famous meats are on display and we encourage you to stop on your way out and buy a few portions to take home. Choose from turkey pastrami, rare roast beef, turkey breast, black forest ham and more—it will be great for packed lunches for you our your kids all week. Pack a lunch for the park or the beach and surprise your family with the quality and taste of Benjies Deli.
It’s a wonderful idea to bring a little of Benjies home with you and enjoy it throughout the week for lunch or dinner. You can also pick up some side dishes for your main dish to save on time when you’ve had a busy day. Our fantastic home-made beef or chicken pot pies keep so well in the freezer and make dinner a snap! We sell these up to 10 pot pies at a time—what can we say? They’re that good. Marie Callendar can eat her heart out.
The deli selection also includes: smoked whitefish, lox trimmings, Greek olives, beef knishes, potato knishes, kishka sausage, pickled tomatoes, coleslaw, potato salad, macaroni salad and kosher pickles. Surprise your family by adding one of these to your own dinner menu and it will be sure to be a hit! Don’t worry, we don’t mind if you take the credit, just as long as you keep coming back.
At special occasions and holidays, remember Benjies Deli can do the cooking for you, even for things like traditional Seder plates. If you call us two to three days in advance, we can even provide a brisket dinner with mashed potatoes, complete with all the sides necessary to not lift a finger except for bringing the food home from Benjies.
Don’t forget that life is uncertain—eat dessert first! It may not be the most important meal of the day, but it’s certainly our favorite, and it’s the best way to award yourself after a busy week. Try some of our apple strudel, cherry strudel, German chocolate cake, chocolate “wipe-out” cake, éclairs and napoleons available at the deli. We dare you to get home without eating one on the way…I’m sure your family won’t notice the crumbs on your chin.
