Peggy Yolman and Tim Cummins have made it through their first two months. The couple opened the Big Belly Deli at Cocoloba Plaza in Coral Bay in the middle of November, the better to kind of sneak up on high season – giving themselves time to figure out how things work.
Open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., seven days days a wee, the Deli offers breakfast, lunch and dinner and, of course, takeout. Desserts, too. Their inspiration was to offer comfort food that their Mom made for them as kids, they told Crystal Bray of the St. John Sun Times. Besides sandwiches like classic Reubens and hot pastrami on Rye, you can also buy deli meats to go from the display cooler.
"It’s just like a regular, New York-style deli," Bray wrote, "and what you see is what you get."
