That deli sucked balls for a number of years. I stopped going there somewhere around 2005 or 2006. Lines too long, service sucked, food too expensive, and not a good selection. And to clarify a point...it is NOT in New Paltz. It's in Gardiner. Convenient Deli makes a good egg sandwich, and quick and easy lunch sandwiches. They are fast, and inexpensive. In the same parking lot with Dedricks Pharmacy. The deli in Gardiner is WAAAAY overpriced.

Has The Last Bite been working on a deal? They would be a great new proprietor, though of course High Falls would be sadder for their absence(assuming they would close that location).

+1 for the deli sucking balls - $3 for a peanut-butter bagel served by some snotty kid that took 20 minutes? Same price gets me a fatty egg sandwich from the convenient deli, plus coffee, served by the friendly and honest folks - left my wallet there once and they returned, not short a buck.

Been climbing in the Gunks for nearly 20 years and went into the deli 3 or 4 times at most. Everything was always overpriced, not very good and service was very slow.

That's three posters above who complained about the place. Yet RangerRob noted too long lines there. It doesn't take a brilliant mind to conclude that a well run place could be quite successful.

I agree the business could be successful.

One thing I would love to see there would be smoothies and fresh juices.

I think having picnic snack packs premade and available to be custom made, prepaid and ready for pick up would be a smart idea during the season.

I'll miss going there to buy $1.50 semi cold cans of coke (when in stock).

I stopped in regularly after Sunday's trail crew session. Never waited on line, food was good, but hell, no one ever sucked balls. How did I miss out on that? Damn, must have been a crowd pleaser during the morning rush.
