The Manchester Gourmet Deli Family
I’d like to welcome you to The Gourmet Deli & Café. I am Melanie Allen, proud co-owner and managing partner who oversees the daily operations of the business. I also, quite freequently can be found cooking breakfast . I was raised in the restaurant business. Through the years I gained experience by working in local restaurants - from fine dining to bartending. I could never see myself doing anything else as I love the business and it is my passion. Robert Van Dyk is my partner who resides in Ridgewood, New Jersey.
The Gourmet Deli & Café was established in the early 1960’s. It quickly became known for its good food, service, hospitality, and outdoor dining- a first for Manchester. Bob & I purchased The Gourmet Deli & Café on July 1, 2004.
Our mission is to continue to consistently provide our customers with great food & service. After all, this is our passion. As it is our customers who make us who we are!
Thanks for visiting, see you soon.
Melanie & Staff
