Sometimes serendipity strikes and you find a great restaurant at the perfect time, like when we found Kara’s Korner Deli and its corned beef and cabbage just days before St. Patrick’s Day. This is a great restaurant in the Glendora Village that will certainly please your entire family with its many food options.
There’s a bit of everything at Kara’s Korner Deli (from soups and salads to Italian and Asian dishes) and there are also specialty Kosher meals that you won’t find easily elsewhere in the area, like a delicious bowl of Matzo Ball soup (that is a meal in itself) or the Lox Plate. For those with adventurous tastes there are also dishes like a Hot Tongue Sandwich or a Hickory Burger.
The best part of it all is that the prices are quite affordable. Unless you want a specialty place (i.e. the Lox Plate goes for $19), most dishes are under $10. It’s good food that feels homemade and wholesome, and that won’t break the bank.
Kara’s Korner Deli is friendly, relaxed, and welcomes the entire family (even your furry friends). There is a patio and a sidewalk dining area where your pets are welcomed. If you have lived in this area for a while, you may recall Danny’s Kosher Pickle, which used to be on Azusa Ave. Robert and Kara Larsen owned it prior to their move to Wisconsin, an adventure that lasted five years before they missed us back here in California. Nearly a decade ago they returned and opened Kara’s Korner Deli. So, as you can see, you’re in the hands of old friends.
Kara’s Korner Deli is on the northwest corner of Glendora Avenue and Foothill Blvd., at 101 W. Foothill Blvd, in Glendora, CA 91741. The restaurant is open daily from 5:30 am to 8 pm. More information at KarasKorner.com.
