Zaftigs Delicatessen

Jewish in Streetcar Suburbs

‘Let us be your Jewish mother,' Zaftigs implores. And on weekend mornings, patrons craving potato pancakes with smoked salmon, challah French toast and cheese blintzes line up out the door to oblige. Fortunately, breakfast is served all day, so nobody has to miss it. Otherwise, the deli turns out a huge selection of sandwiches, including classics like Reubens and pastrami.
