The crab cake sandwich was amazing. They have the best pickles. The owner is extremely knowledgeable and willing to answer all of my many questions about all them options.

Stumbled upon this gem when in town for the weekend. Small and quiet, but bright and inviting. Logan was the lone employee and was incredibly helpful and kind. I tried a slice of the pistachio mortadella and it was incredible. I was going to get that sandwich, however Logan mentioned that the pastrami was the best he’d ever had. I went with it, along with some pickled Fresno peppers, and he wasn’t kidding. It was also one of the best sandwiches I’ve ever had! The star of the show, however, was the house made pickle! It was truly excellent! I’m not sure if I’ll even end up in Decorah, IA again, but if I do, I’m definitely going back to see Logan!

Logan’s meats and cheeses in his deli are fresh and the real deal! He’s even going to try to order in some caciocavallo for me- the REAL stinky cheese! The sandwiches he creates are unique and the flavor combos are supreme! GREAT FOOD! Take out only, but so worth it!!
