This almost seems like an oxymoron –- Denver Delis? Somehow, it just doesn’t fit the image of the town. But here are a few that you may want to give a try around the city. These are mostly sandwich style delis, but that’s okay by me.

Good breakfast here, but also a great deli feel throughout the day. I’ve never been here when it’s not busy, which is always a good sign. The sandwiches are huge. The Potato Latke Rueben is marvelous.

This is a marvelous sandwich place. Try the Ahi Tuna sandwich or the Cubano, both are tremendous.

Spinelli’s is a small, family owned market and deli. It offers a real neighborhood Italian feel, which I truly appreciate. It is a great place to stop for a quick sandwich. Spinelli’s offers some of the best Italian meats in town.
