Denver >Restaurants > Heidi's Brooklyn Deli
New York City deli arrives in Denver, taste intact, minus the attitude..
Heidi's satisfies the craving for everything from liverwurst to garden burgers. The place fills up for several hours around lunch time, people lined up to the door, shouting their order to one of several employees over the counter. All the favorites are here: creamy egg salad, spicy salami, thick meat loaf with ricotta and one of Denver's best Reubens. Sandwiches are served on a choice of bread, also available by the loaf.
Are you kidding me!!. This is as far from a east coast deli as Tony Saprono is real. The only thing that looks like an east coast deli is the view of the meats through a glass window which every supermarket now have. Terrible service means a terrible time. Please pass this dive by!!
Not even close. I'm from the east coast and I can tell you that this place is no New York deli. It would get laughed out of business anywhere east of the Mississippi. It does have that nice neighborhood feel, but the food is mediocre, the bagels are often stale and there is just nothing special about the place. It doesn't even make my top 5 list in the Highlands neighborhood (not to mention the whole city).
Hmmm.... People are always giving this place props. Heidi's is supposed to world famous for their breakfast bagels, but the breakfast bagels are not that good...the eggs are almost runny and the bagels themselves taste more like rolls than actual real bagels. The service is inconsistent and the entire set up of the place seems disjointed and chaotic.
6.5. The service at Heidi's makes it a not so good place to go. The food is wonderful, however. I live in the neighborhood and I think twice before I decide to go in there now. Also, depending on whose working the music is too loud and doesn't lend itself to sitting down. The decor is fun
Heidi's Amazing!. If you are looking for a quick bite to eat Heidi's is the place to go. With a super friendly staff, amazing sandwiches, and possibly the worlds best bread, Heidi's has kept me coming back time after time.
Who runs the show.
I wish this place would get its act together. They have great meats and good breads(except for the horrible rye). However the service is the worst I have ever seen. Do they hand out prozac in the morning.
I've seen the owner in there a few times and he just doesn't care. Someone needs to train these folks to make a sandwich. Having put myself through school making cheesesteaks in a Philly deli this place is a disgrace.
Like New York. This is a great little deli in one of Denver's most charming neighborhoods. It is quick and good. Want ice cream? They have a yummy selection. It reminds me of a New York deli. Denver needs more neighborhood places like this.
Good Food, Poor Service. The Sandwiches at Heidi's are great for sure, especially the cajun turkey with avocado, but the service is really hit or miss. There are times that you will speed thru the line and other times you have to wait for the teenage girls to get off the phone to make your sandwich for ya. Good discovery: call your order in & pick it up.
You Have To Be Kidding. Sunday---we tried----all we can say is that Denver has a tough time finding a decent Deli---foood sucked and staff was disorganized
