For a town packed with top quality delis, Alan’s Avenue Deli has done enough to stand out from the crowd. While many delis have nestled themselves among the suburban hubs of Watchung Plaza and Upper Montclair, Alan’s has braved the more demanding and bustling area of downtown Montclair and Bloomfield Ave. The deli is located at 405 Bloomfield Ave., right in the thick of an award winning town center that is filled with restaurants, venues and shopping.

Even with so much competition around, Alan’s Avenue Deli  has become a loved eating stop for Montclair residents. One satisfied customer said of her trip with her family, “We loved it so much we tried to go back the next day, but they are closed on Sundays. My only complaint is that this place is so good it should be open 24/7.”
This seems to be a common theme among those who eat at Alan’s; it seems somewhat like a cult favorite. Many customers I spoke to said they had been loyally going to Alan’s for lunch most days of their week. This speaks volumes about the establishment; not just of their food, but of their service.

Of course, the food is the main attraction at Alan’s Avenue Deli. Traditional lunch meats are combined with carefully constructed salads and brilliant breakfast foods to create a menu that is accessible at all hours of the day and will satisfy no matter your food preference. Some of the most popular items include the “Midland Avenue” sandwich, filled with smoked turkey, Black Forest ham, Finlandia Swiss cheese, Russian dressing and coleslaw. Another great option is the ability to make your own omelette; the ingredients to choose from are irresistible.
Whatever the time, Alan’s Avenue Deli can be counted on for a filling and wholesome meal. Alan’s provides both online ordering and can be alternatively reached at 973-744-4545.
