Sure, a big part of going to Canter’s Deli on Fairfax might be the experience–settling into a vintage vinyl booth to soak up the neon-lit late-night atmosphere. But sometimes you just want a giant, meaty sandwich, right now, hold the side of kitsch. Catering to that demand, Canter’s has opened a delivery-focused annex in Pasadena.
To get your fix of smoked salmon or hot pastrami when you’re nearby, just fire up your preferred delivery app and make your selections. Seamless, GrubHub, and Postmates all have the menu live online now. Delivery is available within a five mile radius. Be sure to select the Canter’s that’s located at 55 South Madison Avenue, as the deli also has their main restaurant, and a second delivery-focused outlet intended for orders heading downtown. You can also choose to pick up your order from the Pasadena location, but don’t expect all the trappings of the eat-in original.
The Pasadena Canter’s is housed in a hub called Kitchen United, a certified commercial kitchen space shared by multiple food concepts–aka a “ghost kitchen.” Canter’s is in the facility alongside the Pizza Plant, Lost Cuban Kitchen, Grilled Cheese Heaven, Barney’s Gourmet Hamburgers, and Mama Musubi–so if you want a sandwich, but your dining partner wants poke, you can both be happy. Just remember that each merchant handles their own orders, so while you can pick up at the same time, it will be two separate transactions.
