This deli has a lot of history behind it. The original Canter’s Deli was opened in Jersey City, New Jersey in 1924. In 1931, the family run operation moved to Los Angeles and the tradition began. Big sandwiches, large portions, and many Jewish favorites would make up the majority of the menu. The deli was open 24 hours except on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. In 2003, the deli made it across state lines and expanded the franchise with its current home at Treasure Island. Unlike many delis which used packaged food, Canter’s prides themselves on their fresh foods. Pickles are made in-house daily and bread is baked good and baked twice daily to ensure it is as fresh as possible. Potato salad, cole slaw, egg salad, turkey salad, and knishes are made in-house. Although these steps may seem simple, it’s little touches like these that make Canter’s so good.
The deli is famous for their fresh baked rye bread which is the secret to why these sandwiches are so delicious. Favorite sandwiches include the Fairfax which is a half pound stack of corned beef and pastrami. Also try some healthier breakfast options like fresh fruit, cereal, and muffins. Canter’s is busy almost any time of day and it’s a great choice when looking for something fast, cheap, and delicious.
