Come here for your classic American sandwiches such as pastrami, reuben, cuban, etc. The ambience is homey and reminiscent of simpler times. A gem of a place.
Tip: All sandwiches come with a side of coleslaw.

Discovering Steeples Deli is like walking into a F&B establishment that is lost in time — the rustic delicatessen is one that I have always been wanting to drop by for quite a while, and the sheer rustic vibes and old-school settings have been well-preserved over time; the heavy use of wooden elements, bricks and tiles with counter seating simply brought us back to simpler times where having a sandwich/burger in such an environment was considered fancy and great for dates.

True enough, the Cuban Sandwich here stays true to the rustic vibes of the place. It’s only my first time here; not sure if this has been served the same way since their establishment 38 years ago — but nonetheless, it’s how the entire sandwich went together that really got to me. First bite down and the thing that hits is the crispness of the bread; almost akin to that of a good sourdough — crisp on the exterior, yet with enough tension for a good bite within. There on, the pulled pork here comes fairly chunky for a meaty bite; a slight hint of smokiness of the meat comes with a crunch of the pickle — all that without a porky stench with the meatiness well-balanced with the Dijon mustard slathered on the toast. Even the coleslaw is worth a mention; served cold, it’s crunchy, fresh and really refreshing — a good break between munches of the sandwich indeed. An item we have had no regrets on ordering!

Thought it’s kinda sad to see how Steeples Deli was pretty quiet on a weekday afternoon when we made our visit; gone are the days where the spot still remained buzzy and offering a wider variety of bakes — tough circumstances that has hit F&B establishments hard especially in this area and the CBD after the pandemic with work-from-home and social distancing measures in place. Given its heritage, Steeples Deli certainly has its place in the F&B scene even in such times; a spot worthy to check out for some old-school vibes and rustic eats that stood the test of time!


Hidden jem. This place has been there for last 37 years and counting

The lady in charge is super polite and welcoming.

Got the shake for $7. Generous portion of ice cream and really heavy to drink. Complete value for money.

I loved the place and highly recommend to anyone who loves coffee and shakes and pie.

5 stars

Pork Chops are nicely marinated and tender. A simple dish, slightly pricey at $18. Steeples deli had this old school attraction that draws passerbys.

I never, ever leave Steeple's Deli without getting a few pieces of their fantastic house-made fudge.
Moist yet a little crumbly in texture, they are a dark chocolate flavour with sweetness coming from the puffs of super soft marshmallows embedded within.
At only 90 cents per piece, I think it's sacrilegious to not at least give it a try. And if you then choose to leave clutching a bagful, I totally understand.

Took a trip down memory lane for lunch today. Steeple's Deli is a place I have been visiting since my early 20's - they are Singapore's first delicatessen and have been around for 35 years! And yes, I have been finding enormous satisfaction in their sandwiches and milkshakes all this time.
On nearly every trip, the Pastrami ($15.90 nett) and the Reuben ($16.90 nett) are the two sandwiches I find myself constantly torn between. Today, the Pastrami won.
So it was its very well-composed yumminess of moist, hot pastrami, melted cheese and wholemeal bread that I found myself sinking my teeth in. Also tucked in there were a neat stack of crisp, dry lettuce (I find this small detail so important as I detest wet bread *shudder*) and sliced tomatoes. If wholemeal doesn't suit you, you can opt for rye or white.
Their milkshakes, made with scoops of ice-cream, are not to be missed. I had the Caramel Latte flavour ($6.90 nett) this time and really liked it.
