Canter's Deli is a famous Jewish style delicatessen in the Fairfax District of Los Angeles, California, near the border of West Hollywood. The Canter family originally opened up a delicatessen in Jersey City in 1924. Canter's quickly became a hangout for show business personalities, given its location and its late hours. It has remained such ever since.
Canter's is widely celebrated for its traditional deli favorites, such as pastrami, corned beef, matzoh ball soup, challah, lox and bagels, and brisket. But it also has a massive menu of other breakfast, lunch, and dinner options and has been awarded for its food many times over the years. For example, Los Angeles Magazine named Canter's waffles the Best Waffle in Los Angeles. Esquire magazine called their Monte Cristo sandwich one of the best sandwiches in America.
