If you ever find yourself in the Aptos Village area of Santa Cruz County and are looking for a nice local deli to grab a sandwich, head over to The Palm Deli. Owned by the Glaum Family, this local deli has a little bit of everything for your lunch time needs. Sandwiches, green salads, deli salads, soups, coffee, teas, smoothies, milkshakes, gelato and MORE! This, my friends, is your one stop shop. Tucked away below some beautiful redwoods, The Palm Deli is only a short distance from The Forest of Nicene Marks State Park, making it a perfect place for a pre or post hike meal! The Palm Deli is perfect for quick lunch meetings, grab and go meals, preparing for a family picnic at the park or a beach day!
If you are looking for a nice deli to grab some breakfast before work or school, The Palm Deli also has you covered. They recently started serving breakfast with options on the menu such as bagels, breakfast burritos, basic egg/bacon meals, breakfast sandwiches, acai bows and more.
I have tasted a few of their sandwiches, but my go-to sandwich is the “Hawaiian Heaven” (pictured on the right). Ham, swiss cheese, sweet hot mustard, and an amazing pineapple chutney…it’s the perfect grab and go sandwich if you are wanting a bit of a tropical kick. Be sure to check out their giant fish tank while you wait for your food to be prepared. There are some awesome underwater creatures in there…
The Palm Deli has also been a host to several events such as concerts, fundraisers, and more. They also offer catering if you are ever looking for it!
