Attention class! Step into the past and immerse yourself with some tasty meals and a glimpse of simpler times. Based in what was once a kindergarten classroom, Olde School Deli & Café has been serving customers homemade meals since November of 2017. Enjoy a variety of soups, fresh salads, deli-style sandwiches made with local meats, baked goods, and traditional breakfasts, all in the comfort of a retro classroom setting. Plug your electronic devices into the complimentary charging stations and take advantage of free WiFi while sipping on an ice-cold Oreo quake shake or hot latte. Check out the ever-changing specials on the Olde School Deli Instagram where each special is announced daily, complimented with a nostalgic photo from education history. Get lost in the past and check out Olde School Deli & Café, not just for the excellent food, but for the experience that comes along with it. Class dismissed!
