Unlike a sand witch, a sandwich doesn't have the power to turn men into sand and sand into poisoned glass. A sandwich can cast a devastating spell on hunger pains with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of deli fare and drinks at Shopsy's. This deal is only valid toward Shopsy’s dine-in services and can be used at either of Shopsy’s downtown or Markham locations.
An edibles institution since 1921, Shopsy's deals in delicious deli fare, with fresh cuts from Canada's finest meat trees. Try a Shopsy's sandwich ($6.99), topped with your choice of several homemade meats—such as salami, roasted turkey, or Shopsy's renowned corned beef—and served on fresh rye bread. Sandwichistas seeking further fulfillment can get a combo ($11.99) with a regular deli sandwich, Shopsy's crispy coleslaw, a dill pickle, and choice of potato salad, potato latke, or fries. Other bread-bookended bites accompanied by fries include the architecturally astounding triple-decker BLT ($10.99), a grilled-chicken-breast sandwich ($12.99), and the Bill Cosby ($12.99), a hot corned-beef-and-pastrami sandwich named for Shopsy's fan Bill Cosby, best remembered for his award-winning role in Ghost Dad. Shopsy's steps outside of breaded boundaries to offer comfort foods such as a cheesey baked lasagna ($13.99) and the house-specialty Cabbage Rolls Royce ($13.99). Breakfast and brunch are also available to tame rabid taste buds. Prices and menu items may vary at different locations.
Visit either Shopsy’s location and enjoy deli fare just like your grandmother used to make with her industry-strength meat slicer and access to black-market baked goods.
- This Toronto institution has been in business for over 75 years. This is where you go for heaping corned beef or smoked-meat sandwiches served on fresh rye, or for comfort foods like macaroni and cheese and chicken pot pie. – Frommer's
- They had "healthy combo" options that came with a side of frozen yogurt...and even though they were closing soon, they were quite nice to us. I'd definitely come back here. – Liz L., Yelp
