    One example of overpriced products, is in the Bagels. They sell and individual bagel for only $0.60 but charge $1.70 plus tax for a buttered bagel (toasted or not). That is $1.10 for butter. But they don't put more than a smear on the bagel, so you may as well not have any butter at all.

    Worse is the service. Walking into the place and seeing only one person up front to handle all the customers, she is playing with the cash register for over ten minutes with a customer waiting for a large order and the line building behind. No one else would come out to assist. This is not the first time I have seen this occur as even with the above comment on the bagels. It is the last time I will see it.

    Now this is a true deli and bakery. Feels just like an old fashioned New York place. Bagels are water boiled so they are crunchy on outside and chewy on inside and they have tons of seeds all over them. The pastrami & corned beef are as good as Katz's Deli and the black & white cookies are wonderful. Hard to believe this place is in Flagler County. I am one of their newest fans.

    Great food at a low price. The pancakes are immense. When ordering breakfasts, we usually end up at least two meals.

    When staying in Palm Coast this winter I couldn't wait to go here for a pastrami Reuben. I was extremely disappointed this time! My pastrami was tough which made it hard to eat and very unappetizing. I think if I go back I will stick to ordering just soup. I would not spend the money for a tough sandwich again.

    Visited for breakfast and found this place to be a lot larger than I thought and quite busy. Our server was friendly and many staff were happy to take away empty plates, etc. as they passed. My omelet was okay. It was a little too browned and under seasoned, but it did have plenty of vegetables inside. The bagel tasted like any sold in the store and the coffee wasn't bad, and it was nice to get a pot on the table which doesn't happen too often anymore. Overall a pretty good local breakfast choice.

    Everything is homemade. Even the pastrami, corned beef, turkey, brisket. There is no place around here where you can get a kettle boiled bagel and ever notice the seeds on bottom & top? I also love the fact that the bagels are made fresh throughout the day. This place reminds me of real delicatessens. I would go to Publix (which I do when I want a sub) for Boars Head products. But for soup like my mother used to make and fresh, quality foods it's always Strathmore. I also find the owners always around and many times help me themselves. It's a homey, friendly place and my church picks up any left over bagels at the end of the day for the homeless.

    Sorry to say, not as good as in the past. Not sure what's going on here but our smoked sable was slimy and our bagels stale and burnt. We'll give them another try, but we're waiting a while. We had some problems in the past with the freshness of sides but this time it was the main item; smoked sable, it cost like $10 a quarter pound and I do not expect to be served spoiled food at any price, especially this price. Truthfully, it all should have been comped and we should have received an apology.Oh, the bagels we got to go? They're stale too.

    When we arrived at Strathmore we were expecting a small hole-in-the-wall shop with good food. But when we went into Strathmore we wanted to dine in the place was pretty big. The place was packed but we only had to wait 5 or 10 minutes. Our server, Chris, was great and he got our order very fast. When our food arrived I couldn't believe how much food we got for the price we paid. The pancakes they have are soo light and fluffy and HUGE, let's just say I am going to be having pancakes for launch too. Then as we were enjoying our brunch the owner came around to see how everything was, they are such nice people that care about the quality of their restaurant. This is a hidden gem and a true New York Deli!

    We had friends visiting from out of town so figured this would be a good place to stop and have breakfast before they left to return home. Big mistake. The breakfast took forever to come out and when it finally did, left a lot to be desired. The pancakes were terrible! I don't know if they are from a mix or whatever but they were tasteless and heavy - yuck!

    Then, we asked for a glass of skim milk and the waitress informed us they don't have skim milk - they just add water to the regular milk. Needless to say, we asked for the bill and left. Very disappointing. Will never go back.

    My wife and I have been to many delis, this is one is on the top. Great bagels, cream cheese, fish and baked goods. Good service. Loved all of it. Will go back again and again. Getting hungry thinking about it.

    Let me start on a positive note by saying the food/bagels are excellent. Things that need some serious improvement? Employees personality, they should always greet you with a smile and be happy to serve you... I've been here about 3 times and each time the employees don't make you feel that "I want your business/Thank you" kind of vibe!

    Each time I have never ordered anything that had to be "cooked" or even really "prepared".. .some cookies and a toasted bagel w/ butter.. and a 1/2pnd tuna (at most) and I've always had to wait between 10-15 minutes ... and that is NOT on a busy day!

    The prices are kind of steep; I do believe there should be lunch "specials" ...

    I will go back only because the food is really good... and the cookies are actually bakery style! I hope they read this and take it into consideration in making some changes with their staff.

    Comment from at Best Bagels & Deli - Sorry to hear your dismay. We work very hard to please our customers and instill in our staff friendliness and good customer service. Unfortunately, sometimes even though we are constantly reminding them, some of them tend to forget, Extremely frustrating for us as well! I would appreciate it if you would please come to me or my husband Alan, with any suggestions or situations. We are always on site and will correct the situation on the spot. Our philosophy is a customers should always leave with a smile on their face, a full stomach and a thank you from us!

    Yes, we do have specials every day. Mon. - Friday breakfast specials from 7 am until 10 am. Very inexpensive breakfasts! Lunch specials every day including weekends and brown bag specials everyday. We even have a buy 5 lunches, only pay for 4 and Sunday morning special 7 am-9am - 10% off sit down breakfast.

    Thank you for your comments and please introduce yourself when in the next time,

    Karyn.
