Original Bread Basket Deli


Best Deli Restaurant in Oak Park, Michigan Since 1968


Our Story

Welcome To OBBD

That’s our long name: The Original Bread Basket Deli. Started in the 1960s by Earl Mostyn and Ron Forman opened – and still operating – in Oak Park, Michigan.  Although the founders are no longer with our restaurant, we have maintained the same recipes and great food that made The Bread Basket one of the best Jewish-style delicatessen restaurants in Michigan.

Call us old fashioned and unwilling to change. We still use the same Detroit-based suppliers: Sy Ginsberg’s meats, Superior bakery breads, Topor’s pickles, Better Made potato chips.

We are not affiliated with the Bread Basket Deli chain restaurants.

Only the Best

Quality Ingredients, True Delicatessen Food

Similar to other deli restaurants, we start with carefully selected corned beef, pastrami and roast brisket from famous Sy Ginsberg’s United Meat & Deli. They always start with the highest quality cuts of meat. Processing continues by using only the freshest ingredients available.

What makes us better is that we then cook the meat for hours in our restaurant based on traditional recipes and methods. We finish them by hand trimming each and every piece in the old-world tradition and piling them high in sandwiches for you to enjoy. And, of course, don’t forget the complimentary pickles – new and old.

Corned Beef Sandwich

Juicy corned beef served on double baked rye bread. Or choose onion or Kaiser roll, pumpernickel, white or wheat bread. Cheese?

Beef Pastrami Sandwich

Premium cut of beef cured with Sy’s own pickling cure recipe. Smoked over natural hardwood. Served on your choice of bread.

Turkey Pastrami Sandwich

You don’t like red meat? No problem, Our turkey pastrami is cured with the same pickling recipe. Or be a man and get a 4 decker!

Authentic Jewish Food

We are much more than a delicatessen sandwich shop in Oak Park, MI. We have several entrees, hamburgers and deserts.
