WAY OVERPRICED COFFEE – Went on 11/3/07 for breakfast. Food great, service great, Bakery to die for (have to try their garlic-parmesan
BAGEL CHIPS- highly addicting) the prices are reasonable (usually)
BUT, $2.50 FOR A PLAIN CUP OF COFFEE IS RIICULOUS !!!!!!!!!!!!! we'll go there again but, you can bet I
won't have anything but water to drink until they take care of this abomination or serve a decent quality
Good food and okay service – I live in Atlanta and was visiting the West Coast for my father's birthday. We went to the Katella Deli to pick up his birthday cake and decided to stay for dinner. The menu was large and varied. The clientale was mostly older and seemed to be enjoying their food. I ordered the chopped liver. While it wasn't piled high like NYC Deli's, it was quite tasty. I was disappointed that I could not order it on sourdough bread though. I would love to go back and try some other items that looked/ sounded good.
Editorial Review – Roomy restaurant and quick-bite lunch counter draws in hungry OC families looking for deli classics and old-fashioned comfort food.
Don't Order the Monte Cristo ... Complain if you don't like it! – I was looking forward to trying something new and was so disappointed with my unedible Monte Cristo. It looked like plastic and tasted like cardboard. I complained to the waittress that I didn't think I could eat it. I couldn't make up my mind, so my date suggested that I order a French Dip that he could share with me because he didn't like his roast beef sandwich. She happily brought me a French Dip that was moist and delicious! The sandwich was delivered with french fries that were old and overcooked. I complained again, and the waittress brought me a fresh serving of delicious fries. Afterwards, we visited the bakery and picked out a delicious carrot cake, fresh rye break, and a flakey blueberry danish. Overall it was a below-average visit. I wish that the owners would review their menu items for quality.
Just drive to LA if you want good Deli – Drove 20 Minutes to Katella Deli in search of some Jewish Penicilin. Sadly, Katella sorely dissapoints. That the waitress didn't know what a two-cents plain is, that they serve corn bread with matzo ball soup, that I've had better matzo ball from a jar (OK, it was clearly the same matzo ball), that lox and eggs is served with potaotes "O'brien," all reasons that Katella misses the mark so greatly. Even the bakery, my last hope for the place, serves a sad excuse for rugelach. Perhaps they spent too much time on the jelly donuts and "fresh baked" coconut cream pie. It's not that I wouldn't reccomend Katella deli. It's fine-ish if you just want run of the mill diner food. But, if you are looking for deli food with any authenticity, just head up to the valley.
Best place for bakery and good wholesome food – My family goes there everytime we have to celebrate a birthday or we have family coming into town. It is one of the best places to get comfort food when you are down, to have a good time and create good memories with great food around you.
I love the restaurant and everyone I take there loves it too.
Good stuff for many years, now... – The matza soup will re-grow a dismembered llimb...it is that good. Mashed potatoes must have God's blessing, they are to die for. Knish is very good. Service is hurried, but efficient. Try it, you'll like it...tee hee.
Chocolate Mousse Cup – Three cheers for their extensive bakery selections! Our family takes their bagel chips home-- a great choice for a sweet tooth= cinnamon or for salty= parmesean cheese. I personally have enjoyed all the chocolate confections I have tried especially the chocolate mousse cups. Delish! Take one to go!
excellent experience – Going to Katella Deli for our family is a delightful experience. We love to go for lunch and order a plate of pickles to nibble on before our food arrives. There is a huge variety of food to choose from. No visit is complete without stopping at the bakery counter to oogle all the incredibly decadent pastries and to also get a loaf of fresh rye bread to take home (ok, we also purchase several of the decadent pastries to take home also!).
a PLACE TO TRY! – We have been there around three times and the food and service have been very good. Very good selection to choose from and a wide variety of food to try. Go and have a good time!! We always have and look forward to the next time we go.
