    Beyond pleased

    I've been coming here for about two years now on my lunch breaks and I've seen a lot of changes that have been made to the place (all for the better) the decor is more comfortable the wait staff is very friendly and good at seeing to your needs. The food

    Lousy Deli

    Good sandwiches, terrible desserts! Waitress admitted that decaf coffee was stale but refused to brew fresh pot. She said her manager would not let her. Poor excuse for a CC deli. Go elsewhere.

    Superb sandwiches

    I spent my early years, in the 1950's, at places like Famous and Kelem's in South Philly. Thick sandwiches, real meat and turkey, authentic Jewish rye, etc. I thought those days were gone in the city. Then along comes Schlesinger's, with it's great soups

    Prepare to chew

    Not customer friendly and overpriced

    I have visited this place for several times. I eat there once, but I didn't like the atmosphere. The stuff is not very friendly and the food, although good quality is VERY overpriced. There are few of the servers who at least try to smile and be nice. O

    Corned beef and pastrami are the mainstays of a Jewish deli and nobody in Center City does it better than Schlesingers.
