Just hearing the sound of the name sends feelings of happiness. Helen’s Deli has been a downtown legend for years; almost 40 to be exact. Since 1974, Helen’s has been scooping up hot schnitzels, cabbage rolls, and fresh salads from the salad bar to three generations of office-folk eager for a quick bite of home-made, fresh-from-the-farm fare. Daily specials like Chicken Parm on-a-bun, Meat-on-a Stick, or Pierogi Dinner, keep regulars coming for the comfort, and the signature gift baskets continue to be a house-warming favourite. The European deli and dry goods section features foreign favourite imports from the homeland. Don’t let the small frontage fool you, Helen’s runs deep with a varied selection of quickie lunches to satisfy almost any taste.
