Sandwiches and ice cream are never out of style and just the right amount of attention can make a meal or treat become even more delicious while retaining its simplicity. Village Deli and Creamery down in Pawleys Island has perfected that trait, with their many menu items made to order for guaranteed freshness.
Since 2003, this eatery has provided the community with uncomplicated and affordable meal choices without forgoing quality. This also includes a breakfast menu made up of sandwiches and omelets that is served all day. From open to close there is a steady flow of customers, some of them grabbing a meal to go while others enjoy their food on the wrap around porch.
Classic sandwiches are popular choices, such as the Reuben or the BLT, even the gyro, but the rest of the menu puts up a solid fight as well. The Soprano is the deli’s version of an Italian Sub and is found next to The Big Philly under the “Famous Heroes” section of the menu. Simple burgers and hotdogs follow, and finally wraps and paninis, to make sure all sandwich bases are covered. Guests can also make their own sandwich.
The deli’s wraps and sandwiches come stuffed generously with meat, all of which is quality Boar’s Head cuts. The other ingredients such as the apples found in the Turkey Brie wrap bring the right amount of contrasting flavors to compliment rather than overwhelm. These meals come with a side of your choosing, from perfectly crispy hand cut potato chips to a cup of flavorful pasta salad.
Some food items don’t show up on the menu, like the restaurant’s soups and house made desserts, which are often delectable and creamy cheesecakes. Guests are always encouraged to take a gander at the daily specials, where even po’boys and quiches have been known to show up.
Of course, not everyone stops by for the deli part of this eatery. With 20 flavors of ice cream that are hand scooped onto a cone or into a shake, guests with a sweet tooth love to treat themselves.
Sundaes come with two toppings plus whipped cream and a cherry on top, or customers can keep their dessert simple with just a single scoop.
Because of the added effort the Village Deli team puts into their creations, many regulars often call ahead to cut down on waiting time. This can be especially helpful during peak hours. The restaurant also offers free local delivery, and is willing to cater.
Sandwiches may have a reputation for being simple meals, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have to be delicious. Village Deli and Creamery make simple and quality go hand in hand, along with friendly service that is the cherry on top.
