Katella Deli - Bakery - Restaurant

The History of Katella Deli

Welcome to The Katella Deli, Bakery and Restaurant, a Landmark in Southern California for almost 50 years. Started by our parents, Sam and Shirley – who came to America from Europe in search of a better life – we continue their tradition with authentic recipes passed down and perfected through several generations.

First established in 1964, our parents began by selling Rye Breads and traditional Jewish Foods to the surrounding Jewish community. Today, our 16,500 square foot Katella Restaurant is the quintessential food experience for anyone of any age. We proudly serve over 2,000 happy patrons every day. In addition to the full service restaurant, bar and lunch counter, we also feature an award-winning Bakery and Deli for Food To Go.

Our signature Corned Beef and Pastrami are prepared on site, as are all of our menu items. The breads are Sam’s pride from years of baking, including our Ryes and Challa. These days, Sam’s initial recipes live on in the hands and hearts of third generation bakers dedicated to quality. Many of our traditional meals are Shirley’s original recipes, including Matzoh Ball Soup, Noodle Kugel, Potato Latkes, Sweet & Sour Cabbage and Chicken Soup.

We hope you enjoy your visit!
