"We all eat and it would be a sad waste of opportunity to eat badly." ~ Anna Thomas
Over the years the Charleston Bakery and Delicatessen has served thousands of customers with many traveling a distance just to once again experience foods popularized in American culture beginning in the late nineteenth century. The Charleston Bakery & Deli has become an area institution, a source for great foods and experiences since 2013.
To do what we do one has to have the proper points of reference. If you can’t tell the difference between a good matzo ball and a sinker or the perfect seasoning and slicing for pastrami brisket or corned beef you’re certainly going to be dead in the water when it comes to chopped liver and latkes and everything else the great h delicatessens were known for.
Everything you see at the Charleston Bakery and Delicatessen is made here. Yes, it’s a labor-intensive process to do so much but that ensures we deliver excellence in all we do and serve day after day. You certainly deserve that and your patronage is much appreciated and never taken for granted.
Here’s to many more years serving the community and preserving this iconic history. Shalom.

Also real bagels and Brooklyn Cheesecake!
