Amazing sandwiches and meal deals! - Edit

Love, love, love this place! Always a queue outside as it's so popular.

Such a great sandwich selection and salads and doughnuts/cakes! They also do a meal deal for $11 which is so worth it!

Pros: Tasty sandwiches , Fair priced meal deals , Location

Vegan Deli - Edit

We queued up for roughly half an hour to be served here- so don't go if you're in a hurry as everytime we go past the queue is way out the door!
Large sandwich menu and liked the sound of lots of them, so I bought two (and a pie) so I had some the next day to make it worth the effort of going.
Really liked the foghorn legless and parmageddon and the pie was really great (cauliflower/broccoli cheese).
I wouldn't say the sandwiches were 'out of this world' but they were good and I'm pleased I went, but for the price and options nearby I won't go back as I want to make sure I try everything else in the area!
Can definitely see why it's so popular though, if I lived/worked nearby I'd definitely be a regular!

Pros: amazing choice, all vegan

Cons: pricey for a sandwich

fully vegan sandwich bar!! gf options - Edit

This is like a vegans dream, they sell vegan groceries as well, and baked treats and then it's a fully vegan sandwich bar! They have so so many different sandwiches, I don't think I'll even have the money to get through a third of it!

Delectable! - Edit

Hidden away on the back alleys of Fitzroy, this little takeaway and deli does not disappoint. Delicious toasted sandwiches with a range of fillings from fake meats and nut cheeses to pesto and salad... just what the doctor ordered on a grey and gloomy Fri morning! So many vegan groceries too, squished into a tiny space with style. Friendly and welcoming staff with big smiles and can do attitudes...love this place...bring it to Sydney!

Nothing compares. Shannon and Mo (and their team) are friendly, welcoming, thankful and gorgeous. We donโ€™t get in there as much as we want these days but when we do - we get our S&D fix

Vegan Heaven - Edit

I go here almost weekly and it NEVER disappoints. Haven't tried all their sandwiches yet, but my favourites are the Club Sandwiches Not Seals and the Foghorn Legless, and on days when they have the cardamom donuts, you'd be mad not to grab one. It's not cheap and there's usually a line, but that is to be expected and it's honestly worth it

Pros: Great selection of food and deli items, There's normally dogs there, The staff are angels

Cons: Not cheap (but worth it), It does get very busy around lunch time.

A must do at least once - Edit

The food is amazing (especially the cabinet deli food - salads, prawns, pulled chicken, etc.) and there is a wide range of vegan grocery items to buy, but I do find the sandwiches to be a bit expensive for what you get. S&D is definitely an experience you need to try at least once, but make sure you go early in the morning around 11 because after that the line is out the door all day.

Pros: Great take-home deli food, wide range

Cons: Sandwiches can be expensive for what you get, very busy at lunch/in the afternoon

Nice food, sadly no seating, a little expensive - Edit

I've been here a few times and purchased cheeses, pastries, sandwiches, etc.

My favourite was the pastrami sandwich, my least favourite was a cinnamon donut which was pretty basic and overpriced.

I have to drive a long way to get there and I absolutely hate that there are no tables and chairs. If you go there to buy lunch you have to take it and eat it in your car or in the park. At the park the bins were overflowing with S&D packaging.

Everything is quite expensive and while some of the menu items are worth it because they're amazing, some of it is pretty ordinary and the prices aren't justified.

I do really like the sandwiches but, considering everything is pretty overpriced and I have to go into the streets to eat it like a pigeon, it's definitely not my favourite place to go. It's one of those places I just stop by if I'm nearby.

Pros: Sandwiches are pretty nice, Variety of unique foods, Staff are nice

Cons: No tables and chairs, A bit expensive, Long queues

Good quality food - Edit

Excellent range of products, and the menu was so huge is was hard to know what to choose!!

The wait for my sandwich was a little long, and because someone else had my name they mixed up the orders and she almost left with mine. Nonetheless, the sandwich was delicious.

Pros: Great sandwiches, large range of products

Cons: Long wait, service was a little unorganised

So epic! - Edit

Smith & Deli is without a doubt one of my favourite vegan places in the world! Their sandwiches are amazing and I love everything they're selling in the store but the best thing about it is the service. I have a very weird allergy and rather than the usual weird looks and eye rolling the people working at S&D were more than happy to check the ingredients of every single component of the multiple sandwiches I wanted to order and make helpful switches when I was allergic to something. They made me feel like a regular customer rather than a nuisance and I really appreciated it.

My favourite sandwiches from the menu were the Free Willy 2, the Eggs-Orcist, and the Nobody Calls Me Chicken Salad and I would have ordered the Egg McMartinez over and over again if I'd made it there early enough in the day!

I'd also recommend picking up some Seed & Bean Sicilian Hazelnut chocolate and some peanut butter filled pretzels whilst you're there!

Treat yo-self - Edit

This place is neatly located and super accessible making it perfect for a lunch pit stop (especially those at ACU) if this was a cafe with chairs I don't think I'd ever leave. The food is standard and makes you feel like you never have to miss out on anything being vegan!

The Wiggum - Edit

Oh my God get the wiggum! It's the best sandwich I've ever eaten in my life. The coffee is perfect and the chocolate and boysenberry croissants they had were divine.

This isn't an eat in kind of place so expect to just grab your food and go. There are lots of other treats to take away as well so have a look at the groceries section. You'll find some treats there for sure.

Pros: Tons of options, incredibly friendly staff, delicious food

Cons: Gets crazy busy, sells out of the egg McMartinez fast (so be quick)

I can confirm vegan heaven exists - Edit

I am in love with this place. I honestly wish I could eat here every day.

Freshly made sandwiches, cakes and pastries, inventive flavours and combinations, gorgeous pies and regular specials (that sell out fast!). Delicious hot chocolate (I tried the hazelnut special - it was like a liquid fererro rocher topped with vegan marshmallows!).

The groceries on offer are pretty extensive too; harder to find vegan goodies such as black salt, soy cream and condensed milk, loads of vegan meats, ice creams and cheeses, and of course chocolate (all of which I found to be significantly cheaper than the cruelty free shop - e.g. 150g Vego bars are $7.50 at S&D, but $8.40 at the CFS). Deli and vegan Grocer? Best concept ever.

The service is also super friendly. Vegan vibes all round!

Pros: vegan deli heaven , vegan grocery heaven

VEGAN HEAVEN - Edit

The people who have rated Smith & Deli less than 5 stars are honestly bonkers. This places is everything you could wish for, the biggest selection of deli style made to order sandwiches! The menu is honestly massive and they have daily specials also. Everything down to the type of bread they use is tasty and fresh and heaven! I highly reccomend the Maury Ballstein, its a take on a meat ball sub and the pesto is so so good. The cakes are out of this world too, especially their hand pies. And the selection of stock they sell is awesme too. I LOVE THIS PLACE!

Pros: EVERYTHING

Cons: Usually a que out the door! It is that good!

Smith and Deli is making me poor - Edit

I wish this were a joke but I am OBSESSED with smith and deli. Almost everything I have ever bought from here is amazing. The menu changes frequently, customer service is great and most importantly the food is to die for. This is the place to take meat eaters if you want to convince them that vegan food kicks ass.
Also the prices for vegan groceries are much cheaper than other similar places.

Pros: Everything is freaking delicious
