Original Bread Basket Deli: Traditional Jewish-style Delicatessen Restaurant in Oak Park, Michigan

Our Story

50 Years and Counting

Original Bread Basket Deli was founded in 1968 as Nosherie by Ron Forman and Earl Mostyn at the same location we are still today in Oak Park. After Mr. Mostyn left, Mr. Forman changed the restaurant’s name to Bread Basket Deli.

Ron’s family ran the restaurant until 2002 when our family bought it and we have been running it ever since. Ron spent months passing on his knowledge and secrets to us.

You will not find supermarket style cold cut “deli meats” here. Just like the better delis in Metro Detroit, we use Sy Ginsgerb’s premium seasoned meats as our “base”. Every morning we come into the kitchen several hours before opening to cook our meats, then trim them carefully by hand and only cut when there’s an order.

We use the best double baked rye and other breads, baked locally, as well as finest cheeses and pickles to compliment our mouth-watering sandwiches. All our soups are made in house from scratch. Kreplach and matzo is made fresh in house as well. Cheese blintzes and corned beef & cheese egg rolls? You guessed it: hand-rolled in house.

Whether you dine in, or order carry out, or want to impress your business or social guests with our deli trays and catering, you’ll be full and satisfied.
