The California Avenue Delicatessen!

Located on one of Reno's Historic Avenues, The California Avenue Delicatessen is just minutes from downtown Reno, Nevada.

This wonderful Deli is perfect for lunch. You can dine inside the resteraunt or outside on one of it's for tables that will seat upt to four. Order ahead and have your lunch ready when you arrive or have it  packed and ready to go for your convenience when you arrive to take back to your office. Whatever you decide, you are sure to love the food that is served up at the California Avenue Delicatessen.

What makes this place so special?

I love the friendly greeting I receive each time I walk into the Deli. This family run restaurant offers up a variety of healthy, fresh homemade items that can be customized to please even the pickiest of eaters.

The chef is from the Famous Murphy's Restaurant that was a local favorite  in Reno, Nevada for nearly 21 years before closing its doors earlier this year.  Andria Wiltshire, one of the owners, said she and her husband feel very fortunate to be able to have such a great chef with so much experience working at their delicatessen.


The Menu!

The California Avenue Delicatessen offers an assortment of soups, salads, hot sandwiches, cold sandwiches and deserts. A separate catering menu is available as well.

My favorite it a "signature" item,  the Tri-Tip Sandwich that sells for $8.99. I love it. It is Tri-Tip is severed on a grilled garlic bun with grilled onions and cheese. I order half so I can get the Witlshire's family salad on the side.  The family salad,  called the "Frogs Eye Salad," is to die for. It is a small pasta salad that is sweet and refreshing. Once you try it, you will order it every time you visit the deli. Andria says it is family favorite that is served at every Wiltshire holiday dinner.

Other signature items include a Pulled BBQ Pork Sandwich served on an onion roll, the Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich with grilled onions, mushroom's, red and green peppers served on a sweet French roll with cheddar cheese.

There are several soups available for $5.96 including New England Clam Chowder and Italian Wedding Soup. Made fresh daily.

The California Avenue Delicatessen also offers a unique selection of cold sandwiches the include the Italian Cold Cuts Sandwich, Roast Turkey, Avocado and Swiss Cheese Sandwich, Tuna Salad Sandwich or you can build your own with several meats, cheeses and breads to choose from.

Salads include a Spinach Salad, Greek Salad, Blue Cheese and Apple Salad. Add Grilled Chicken Breast, Tri-Tip or Turkey Breast to any salad for an additional charge.

 Did anyone say dessert?

Oh yes, they have desserts! They specialize in Cheesecake, Turtle Cheese Cake, Tiramisu, Banana Cream Pie and Cookies. All are homemade of course.

The California Delicatessen is also a Catering Kitchen. They have an extensive menu that includes, but is not limited to, Pasta Primavera, Mostaccioli Marinara (small tube pasta with meat sauce), Lemon Chicken, Chicken Augustine, BBQ Ribs, Meatloaf and the menu goes on with a few other select items prepared fresh the day of your meeting, receptions, party, or whatever your event is. I am sure you won't be disappointed.
