Been here scores of times, but this time raised the bar. The "Fresser" sandwich is a pastrami and corned beef on rye offering that was knock it out of the park delicious. The pastrami almost has a single malt scotch essence in its rind, and the meat is almost spreadable, like butter. The rye was crisp tender. My God, someone here knows what they're doing.

I thought it was a pretty good deli, not great, but since it's open 24 hours I'll give it the benefit of the doubt. I ordered the turkey sandwich which had alot of turkey meat piled up and the pickle was good which is essential for any sandwich, but they used a little too much mayo for my taste. Also our silverware had still had food crumbs on it so I decided it was better to just eat with my hands.

One of the very best delis in the state of California. The BMW AG Motorsport works team RLL enjoyed all of the chocolate rugelach cookies I picked up during the race at Long Beach. It was a bit of drive but totally worth it.

I love Canter's, and I recognize that many of my fellow late-night diners are here because of a 2am alcohol buzz, but this is going to be a solid meal no matter what time you arrive. I've enjoyed every sandwich and breakfast I've had here, but I highly recommend the split pea soup, which is only served on Wednesdays. Rugelach is the best in town. Easy parking; lots of history; 2nd floor powder rooms that are begging to tell stories of an older Los Angeles. Love.

Relatively good food; not stellar, but I'm far from picky when it comes to eating, so I'd eat there again and enjoy it. My main grioe, and an important one, is that there are two availablr Canter's wifi networks, & neither is available for paying customers. That alone will prevent me fron visiting in the future.

What an experience! The Reubens are amazing and the pastries are to die for. We found out about Canter's not long after moving to LA earlier this year. It's quite an iconic spot to go to. Great menu and food. The waiting staff we've had are always friendly and with a good sense of humor. It's a step down memory lane to absorb all the art and articles that adorn the walls. This is a spot we always take visitors to now and I've even delivered pastries to LAX to give to family who were traveling outside the US. The deli is fab too with lots of meats and goodies to takeaway.

Canters is one of LA’s veteran restaurant. It’s an LA Jewish Deli and diner in the NYC tradition. It’s been there, and based on the staff and decor probably has remain changed, for several decades. Both a dine-in restaurant, deli, and bakery, they’re serving up classic American and Brooklyn-style favorites from Pastrami sandwiches on rye bread, matzo ball soup, steak and fries, bagel and lox, and pancake breakfasts. My favorite thing to get is the Brooklyn Avenue which is a pastrami or corned beef sandwich on rye with creamy coleslaw and thousand island style spread. It is fatty, juicy, sweet, crunchy, and a whole lotta good, in your mouth! The pastrami and corned beef (I sometimes get a combo) is cooked perfectly and piled on, with sweet creamy slaw just how I like it, and the sauce adds that last layer of flavor to top it off. The rye bread is fresh baked throughout the day so it has that good artisinal bread crisp on the outside and moist chewiness on the inside. I usually don’t get items outside of what they are known for but I have tried others’ plates and everything tastes pretty good—your typical basic diner food taste. Better quality than Ihop or Denny’s but there’s no top chef in the kitchen either. The bakery is also pretty great. They have everything from Danishes, croissants, cheesecakes, cake, cookies, challah, bagels, sandwich breads, etc. My favorite from there is their plain cheesecake. It’s seriously the perfect simple cheesecake (coming from a cheesecake lover)—creamy with sour cream layer on top and graham cracker crust on the bottom. The decor of this place has never been updated and the waiters range from 35 to like 70 so you feel like you’re stuck in a 1950s film but other than that everyone is so friendly and really takes care of you. Last bonus is they’re open 24 hours!

Yes, it's a tourist spot but that doesn't stop it from being a great little deli. New additions to the menu (many more veg friendly--much appreciated) are by and large good, and the standard sandwiches are still there too-- the place is well known for its pastrami. Don't leave without picking something up from the bakery counter- their cookies and pastries are awesome!
