The Globe European Delicatessen is a small, family-owned market and meat counter in Costa Mesa, CA. A 40-year-plus operation, the place packs more punch than most outposts of its size, offering fresh bratwursts, rouladen, and sauerkraut; some of the best German mustards, condiments, and sweets; and an impressive selection of imported bottled beer.
People come for their daily sandwich, their weekly pound of cold cuts, or the occasional specialty item–such as Schaller & Weber pates, Teawurst, and Lachsschinken, for instance. (They also carry our double-smoked bacon.) For European expats, a visit to Globe Deli is a reliable and friendly reminder of home; for the rest of us, it’s a chance to try something new and remarkable.
