The cheeses are seriously delicious, seriously caloric and fairly seriously priced. The question is therefore not so much about if it's worth it, so much as it is about if it's worth it TO YOU, if you know what I mean.
I hit up Daiter's on Saturday morning, happy to find it open even on the Sabbath. Unfortunately, we found it too frustrating to get service at the Deli counter (no line, multiple servers, no number system ... it seemed like the best way to get served was to be as pushy as possible). We ended up buying pre-packaged food instead: Six bagels, two packages of lox and some creme cheese.
We gorged ourselves on the lot of it in the car. Not pretty.
I was disappointed in the service, in the slowness, but not in the food. Even with pre-packaged, we had a tasty experience. (Mind you, I feel like we could have had the same experience after a trip to Loblaws.)
My friend and I went home satisfied and happy, but our breakfast cost as much as a nice restaurant meal, which was a bummer, considering the whole car thing. I mean, if I'm going to pay $30 for a breakfast for two, I at least want coffee, and say, cutlery. Or a table. Something.
I did have an urge to lick some crumbs off the dashboard, which tells you something about the taste, but i guess it all depends on your priorities. (Don't worry! I didn't lick. I reserved my crumb licking for my own fingertips and the front of my sweater. Furry, but still worth it.)
