My review on TripAdvisor:
What I love about New York is that one every corner there seems to be a favorite bodega or deli that sells what you need when you need it. Some also just stand out for the quality of the food and the service and selection. S & A Gourmet Deli is one of those places.
A friend and I had just stopped in to buy sandwiches for lunch that we were going to enjoy a few blocks away in Madison Square Park. They had a large selection of sandwiches and wraps, and I decided on Chicken Cordon Bleu hero sandwich ($8.99) with a Coke ($1.99).
The sandwich contained a fresh fried chicken breast topped with Swiss cheese and ham and then broiled for a few minutes to combine the ingredients. Inside they put a little mustard to add to the complexity of the flavors. You really felt like you were eating a piece of Chicken Cordon Bleu.

My friend ordered an empanada and bought some snacks that we enjoyed after our lunch. The deli has a wide variety of grocery items. She also enjoyed her lunch.
I was so impressed by the sandwich and the quality of the food here I came back for a second time and enjoyed a Bacon, Egg and Cheese on a hero roll ($8.99). The sandwich was on a toasted hoagie roll and topped with three scrambled eggs, several pieces of bacon and American cheese.
The sizable sandwich would have been perfect for two people for breakfast. Each bite you could taste the delicious combination of meat and cheese with the seasoned eggs. It was the perfect meal for breakfast along with a bottled Orange and Mango juice ($4.99).
The Bacon, Egg and Cheese is a breakfast treat
The service at S & A Gourmet Deli is always so friendly and the food comes out in a timely manner for their extensive clientele.
