We also have 6 other soups on a daily basis for those soup lovers!!!
We've been voted San Diego Best Deli countless years, and we're in the news and on the radio all the time.

    Minda is amazing and the food is always delicious! One of my favorite brunch places in San Diego. Try the Ruben omelette with thousand island dressing.

    Many times I've picked up food and taken it home, however this was the first time actually being seated for a late lunch. Our server was outstanding and patient. We must definitely will be back.

    Food was delightful! The meat loaf was so good that we came back 3 days later for more. Plus baked items were flavorful and were great to take home for later treats.

    One of my favorite places to dine when meeting friend/friends for breakfast or lunch. They have a huge menu to select from whether you are looking for something light or something to satisfy your hunger. I usually will get a bagel with cream cheese and sliced tomatoes if looking for something light. Otherwise going in for a Reuben or Pastrami sandwich with their delicious (and famous) potato salad. If I do order a sandwich, at least half goes home with me for a later meal. Their bakery is absolutely outstanding with the best, bread, cinnamon rolls (with or without raisins) and delicious cookies! They also have a deli counter so that you can take home some of their meats, salads and soups.

    D.Z. Atkins has become very overpriced and the food was not terrific. Soup was cold, Gefilte fish for $9.99 was the size of a hard boiled egg. I could have bought one or two jars of fish at the grocery store and enjoyed it more. Booths are small and not comfortable. My check for 3 people was $119. Plus $15. tip. I’ll no longer go back there.

    We are never disappointed when we go to DZ Akins and I’ve been going there since it first opened. Great food, large portions, relaxing environment, and friendly staff.
