The Deli News Cafe is singular in that it was created from the shell of a Shell or some sort of abandoned service station within biking, skating or walking distance of the Pinellas Trail (see our story "A Trail Runs Through It," April 14). "The Deli News" is an open, sunlit eatery with bright colors, a Florida sky ceiling and an inviting, awning covered patio that takes full advantage of our Sun Coast location. The decor is campy, clever and, for this reviewer, a trip back in time to the days of 25¢ 'Superman' comics featuring Kent Clark, Lois Lane, Jimmy Olson and my personal favorite, the indefatigable Editor of the Daily Planet, Perry White.
We asked owners Eleni and George Pavlakos to contribute to this review; they and their talented staff are constantly adding to and enhancing the Deli's fresh, flavorful distinguished cuisine. They sent us their most recent vegetarian menu additions highlighting some traditional American Deli done veggie.
For ourselves we absolutely recommend the 'Black Bean Soup' which is picante with a touch of sweetness and the 'Veggie Cuban', the rest, you'll have to try for yourselves.
You can reach the Deli at 727 735-0505 and when you're on the trail, starvin' you'll find them a short few blocks east at 680 Main Street, Dunedin, FL 34698.
