Delis, short for delicatessens, are an integral part of the culinary scene in the Anglo-American world. They combine fast, yet upscale cuisine, family recipes and casual on-site dining. The first delis were opened by Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe in the 1840s, who made and offered their traditional dishes in compliance with kosher dietary laws. Among the best-known delis in the U.S. in New York City are Katz's Delicatessen and Liebman's Deli, still family-owned today and magnets of attraction far beyond their respective neighborhoods.

The love of life and good food is our inspiration for Life Deli, a gathering place for those who want to enjoy kosher and vegan cuisine in the middle of Frankfurt, while lingering on site or to take away. Our Israeli-inspired offerings range from hot main dishes, light salads and kid-friendly snacks to premium wines and cocktails.

Of course, you'll also find homemade challah, Shabbat boxes and seasonal specialties to accompany the Jewish holidays.

Special highlight: We offer our Israeli breakfast daily & all day - for late risers especially on Sunday a relaxing way to get to know our fresh delicacies!
