Gilbert’s cuisine is familiar, delicious, and tasty! It’s one of the few Jewish delis in downtown Bellevue. Serving Jewish, Pacific Northwest, and American fare, there is something for any foodie.

They have copious amounts of scrambles and omelettes for your breakfast cravings, plus they are all served with a bagel and potatoes. The Brioche French Toast is big enough for 2 diners…or even 3! BUT, what sets Gilbert’s apart from the rest is their homemade deli sandwiches. From a classic Corned Beef to a reinvented Ruben to London Port Wine Roast Beef Dip, they are all homemade and made in-house.
