When bar.food opened in Habersham Village in 2009, it filled a void in Midtown Savannah, giving locals an alternative to the downtown bar scene. Now the owners of bar.food have filled another void in Savannah with the opening of their new eatery, the aptly named coffee.deli.
Located just a few doors down from bar.food in popular Habersham Village, coffee.deli is one of the city’s only true deli-style restaurants. The eatery offers an array of breakfast items that are available throughout the day, including homemade bagels topped with smoked salmon or lox and egg sandwiches on bagels, croissants or bread.
The lunch menu boasts a great selection of traditional deli sandwiches, from classic pastrami and turkey reubens on rye to freshly made chicken, tuna, egg and shrimp salad. Of course, no deli is complete without the standard offering of turkey, ham, roast beef, salami, pastrami and corned beef. And coffee.deli delivers, giving diners the option of customizing their sandwiches with choice of bread, cheese and condiments. Coffee.deli also offers several salads and even chopped liver, a rarity in Savannah.
The eatery, which is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, has a variety of traditional coffee-based drinks, including lattes, cappuccinos and mochas, along with chais, smoothies and other beverages, plus a rotating selection of sweet treats.
