Hymie’s in Merion Station offers all the classic Jewish deli staples, including an amazing egg salad.

The shop’s sweets are also a must-try, such as the delicious chocolate-dipped pretzels, plus cookies, macaroons, and much more.

Meanwhile, Ben & Irv’s in Huntingdon Valley is ideal for fans of smoked fish products.

One of the best options is Lenny’s Sunday Brunch, a huge platter with every cured fish product in the house accompanied by six bagels.
