The Gap Deli Outdoor Seating Arbor

Good and Affordable

One of the few restaurants in Fancy Gap, The Gap Deli offers quality, affordable sandwiches and friendly service.

Best meatloaf sandwich ever…

Best meatloaf sandwich I’ve ever had! That was the comment from a fellow customer shortly before exiting the restaurant. I think I have to agree. They are very, very good. I also liked the Reuben and the beans and cornbread.

What else is offered?

The Gap Deli at the Parkway serves signature salads, sandwiches, desserts, coffee and daily specials in a cozy atmosphere right by the Blue Ridge Parkway. Try one of their homemade salad dressings, cakes and seasonal desserts. Be sure to try the General Lee, General Grant Dog and a slice of their Peanut Butter Pie. They offer a comfortable, sit-down atmosphere for you to relax with your friends and family. In the warmer months, they offer outdoor dining where you can enjoy your meal while taking in cool mountain breezes and enjoy the charm of their beautiful gardens.

Hours: They are open year round. The hours on their web site seem to be unreliable, so I’d suggest calling ahead. (The web site says they close at 5PM, but I was there recently close to 7PM.)
