The Philadelphia Deli Restaurant That Does Lunch Right

Those intense lunchtime cravings aren’t going to be satisfied by a soggy burger from that fast food place near your job. When you’ve worked hard all morning, you need a snack that’s nutritious and tasty and is specially made to get you through the rest of the day. You want a meal that is fresh, vibrant, and delicious, you want a healthy sandwich that’s loaded with wholesome veggies, premium meats and gourmet cheeses, or maybe what you’re into is hearty soups and fresh salads. Whatever it is that you’re craving, you’ll find it at Waterfront Gourmet. We’re the top Philadelphia deli restaurant. Want to know why?

It’s because we’ve got all the good stuff. The kinds of hearty, mouth-watering snacks that you just can’t wait to snack on. Like Philly’s sandwich favorite, the cheesesteak. We fill our version with seasoned roast beef, mushrooms, melted pepper jack cheese, red onions, roasted peppers and spicy mayo, and it’s absolutely amazing. Seriously. But perhaps it’s a club sandwich that you’ve worked up an appetite for. Well, we can make you a tasty toasted triple decker that we load up with your choice of turkey, roast beef, tuna, grilled chicken, or chicken salad, then we add on piles of lettuce, tomato and crispy bacon. This is a thoroughly delicious and filling sandwich classic that you’ve just got to try!

Add a cup or bowl of soup, some chips, or a side salad and you’ve just mastered lunch. Oh, and about those salads… How does a classic Cobb sound? Or maybe you’re in the mood for a totally tantalizing kale based Caesar, or our Mediterranean, which we pile with plenty of hummus, olives, tomatoes, cucumbers, feta cheese and grilled pita bread on some crunchy, crispy lettuce? Sounds yum, doesn’t it? Well, you can only get it at Waterfront Gourmet. We’re the tastiest and best Philadelphia deli restaurant. So if you’re hungry for something delicious, come on over.

Fortunately for you and your food cravings, there’s probably a Waterfront Gourmet near you right now.

Get comfortable and people watch while you snack and sip some of our delicious Bali Bean coffee.


If you really must get back to the job and work through lunch, at least you can make everyone jealous of your totally awesome and delicious sandwich.
