It took me some time to check out Globe Deli, but I finally did it.

Suited in a small strip mall, Globe Deli is German themed deli with German products, deli items, and beer. This small deli looks and feels more like a typical corner market than a German themed one, where's the feeling? Contrary to its listing as a beer bar, only a couple tables are available inside to sit down at.

A cold box on the left side of the store houses much of the beer, with an additional inventory sitting on top of it at room temp. All the beer I saw was German, somewhere around the range of 60 labels. Standards like Weihenstephaner, Bitburger, and Spaten are here, and also less common brands like Konig, Einbecker, Moosbacher, Weltenburger, and Aktien. The beers, which range around the $3-3.50 price, are okay if plan on drinking there, but a but pricey if you are taking to go. Sandwich prices looked fair.

Globe Deli serves a purpose; to get German goodies in or around Costa Mesa. If that's what you're primarily looking for, I'd also recommend Mattern Sausage in Orange (another BeerFly), which has a much larger overall inventory (though smaller beer selection) and deli counter.

vibe: 3.5 | quality: 4 | service: 4 | selection: 4 | food: 4.5 is a corner much more needs to be said...lots of German products everywhere...but lots of beer and sausage....makes me feel welcome seeing those at least

Service....the owner was not as happy to see me as the many beautiful women(serious) but he was very nice to my friend....(male) but seemed not to like but the woman who served me was super nice

food....damn good sausage! and the homemade sauerkraut....the best I have ever had(which is admittedly not that much) but the potato salad was a bit undercooked....maybe they cut the potato chunks too big and they did not cook all the way though?

value...decent beer prices...and standard food prices....9ish dollars for a sausage and sour kraut and potato salad...not bad and they make the sausages themselves

I saw this place when i was leaving Triangle Square and i remembered a distributor for some bavarian beers mentioned it several years ago so i decided to stop in.

It's in the middle of an assuming strip mall that's on Harbor across the street from Triangle Square (which is across from the Goat Hill). It's a small ma and pa german deli with small european market in front. In front are also 2 tables and a small eating bar against the front window. The deli counter is to the right and a nice long open cooler is on the left where i counted 48 different german beers all lined up. The atmosphere is rather simple, but hey, it's a small deli, it's clean, it has a little market and the people were friendly. (my selection rating refers to the amount of german beers)

All bottles and no macro, no american, no british, no belgian but all german beers. Well, maybe a few czech. Some beers of note; Reissdorf, Veltins, Hopf, Schonraumer, Stiegl, Reutburger, Kaiserdom, Hofbrau, Aktien St Martin, Dinkel Acker, Kostritzer, Hacker Pschorr, Weinhenstephaner, Schneider Weisse, Kloster, Bitburger and many more i couldnt remember,... there were 2 - 4 beers from each brand, nice depth and nice selection. There were even some 3L's of Hopf WeisseBock.

It's like a little Hollingshead without the taps and only german beer. Which the selection is larger than Hollinghead's german selection and about on par with Hi-Times... for german beers that is.

The food is pretty tasty and very reasonable. I had a brat with sauerkraut and german potatoe salad. The kraut was awesome. Deli meats, sides, breads are the fare here. I'll be coming for lunch now for a good sandwich and a bottle of good german beer.

The location here is another bonus. Sometimes i'm at the Goathill and i get hungry. I dont want to walk to the Yardhouse because i want to eat something simple to eat, well, voila, i'll walk here now. Or start here... to get a base in the tummy. Or maybe i'll stop by here on my way home from Hi-Times. Well, now you have it. Check it out.
