We had the pleasure of chatting with Christos and Anna, owners of the Old World Deli in Downtown Bellingham last Friday. Old World Deli is a true deli with an impressive selection of meats & cheeses that you can purchase by the pound as well as a staggering array of olives & extras. This place could be Foodie Heaven! You’ll find delights like orange prickly pear soda, black beluga lentils, capers in sea salt, Italian figs covered in dark chocolate, gluten free dark chocolate hazelnut cookies and multitudes of olive oils and aged balsamic vinegars.
And that list isn’t even really scratching the surface of the list of treasures to be found at Old World Deli! They serve breakfast paninis like brie and apple, Nutella or pancetta, fontina and egg as well as lunch or dinner paninis like grilled vegetable, chicken pesto, muffaletta and albacore tuna. They have soups and salads and cheese plates too! Check out the whole menu here.
Old World Deli has an incredible selection of wines that are separated by region and have whole shelves full of bottles uner $10.95. They also serve Boundary Bay Brewery beer and use our ESB to make their own bratwurst! They offer catering services, monthly wine tastings and even live music in their space (occasionally).
Anna and Christos like this eclectic approach to their business. They believe “…a deli is a meeting place where recipes, stories, shared experiences all revolves around how food has always been an integral part of families, friends & culture.” And they want to carry on that tradition…
