Avenue Deli is a small place in Marda Loop (#3 – 2008, 33 Ave. SW) that features Montreal smoked meat sandwiches for brunch, lunch or to take home. The sandwiches come with a variety of flavored chips and a coleslaw salad, with prices around $7-13. I am a huge fan of smoked salmon (lox), so I got a smoked salmon bagel ($13) which was absolutely delicious, with lots of cream cheese and capers, just as it should be. However, a bit pricey, if you ask me. My friend got a tuna sandwich ($10). With two pops, the bill came at $29. When sunny outside, take advantage of the few tables on the patio/ lawn, but don’t expect much: it’s really just three tables out on the lawn… Otherwise, the place has a few tables inside (but not so many, so if you are going there for lunch or brunch during the weekend, it may get crowded pretty fast). Good food, but for a sandwiches places, I found it expensive.
