About Delish Deli

From a jumbo jet to a deli!

Hi, we are Hilary and Matt and welcome to Delish, our decadent and sumptuous deli.

Our story began in 2006, when we met on a flight to Delhi while working as worldwide crew for British Airways. We flew on many flights together staying in 5 star hotels, experiencing excellent customer service and visiting many places only a few are privileged to see. In 2008 we welcomed our daughter Tallulah into the world, who is certainly a character and is very entertaining. I’m sure she will be holding court in Delish with our customers by regaling her stories or enacting some sort of show. When she was 11 months old I went part time and returned to the skies.

Delivering the British Airways hallmarks and service standards for over 25 years enabled us to gain a wealth of experience to interact with people from all walks of life and cultures, be it royalty, film stars, government officials or someone’s elderly relative. The things we have seen and heard onboard make for great story telling at dinner parties.

Matt and Hilary
Delish Deli is now open

Matt has always had a flair with food and we both love entertaining. Our knowledge of the first class product we delivered onboard coupled with our experiences of dining around the globe and our enjoyment of entertaining meant that people often commented that we should open our own restaurant. Matt enjoys seeing people appreciate his creations and is always looking for the next tasty recipe. I always dreamed of owning my own tea shop or deli, and having worked in a few over the years in between flying I started to think about exactly what I wanted to offer and in which location.

So, as the aviation industry struggled to survive during the Covid 19 crisis, Matt chose to take voluntary redundancy after 25 years of loyal service and Delish was born! I have chosen to stay as part time crew but when I’m not flying I will be in the deli alongside Matt serving delicious food, sweet treats and putting together wonderful hampers. I am always on the lookout for new products to try and as a true trolley dolly I love shopping the world.

We will be offering a 1st class service with a twist. Drawing from our own experiences we aim to deliver a truly decadent and sumptuous experience for everyone to enjoy.

What a wonderful experience to sit in this lovely café and enjoy the friendly service and oh, so very tasty food and scrumptious drinks! Highly recommend a visit.

Very nice food and very nice place.

Breakfast was very good and good value for money

My new favourite brunch/lunch venue.

Great Deli in Westbourne, gorgeous food and first class service with a smile 😃 highly recommended their pastrami sandwich, all the salads and charcuterie boards. They also serve quality wine and cocktails. Highly recommend and next to fabulous Shoe & accessories boutique House of Heels 👠 a great combination of delicious food and retail therapy.

The best Croque Monsieur I've had and I live in France so I've had a few!

Delightful coffee house / Deli Bistro. Scrumptious food & good coffee all served by very friendly staff.

Amazing place, very nice staff and food, a true example of great customer service. Thank you 😊

Friendly atmosphere with a great selection of tasty foods.

Very exotic pasta.

Best salad I ever had ! Friendly and polite staff.

Popped in for breakfast today. Had a very warm welcome and the staff were attentive. Great menu, great decor and the coffee was top notch. Good selection for breakfast on the menu, a lot with eggs. Freshly made to order and well presented on the plate. Take card, contactless and cash. Will come again when visiting Westbourne.

I think 4 stars is where this place ranks. I didn't go in first (had to park the car), so I can't comment on whether a friendly reception was received or not. Service at the table was nice/friendly enough. Coffee was great - locally roasted and lovely flavour. Food was really good - I had eggs benedict, which was delicious. My partner had Le Croque Monsieur, which was equally as delicious and a respectable size. Atmosphere was okay/pleasant. Decor is nice. Had to wait a little while for the bill/get someone's attention. Overall, a positive experience, and I/we will definitely go back.

Beautiful friendly place in the heart of Westbourne.Amazing food,well presented and lovely staff. I love the feel of the place and the decor is gorgeous. Highly recommended 👌

Enjoyed a wonderful evening here sharing a charcuterie and cheese platter with my husband. So much food that we couldn't eat it all, so they gave us a neatly packed box with the leftovers to take home. Great idea as it avoids waste. My husband really liked his Amber Ale and my espresso martini was so good, I had to have a second one. Really relaxed atmosphere. Can't believe we spent 3 hours there. Lovely not to be rushed so someone else could have the table. Great service from young waitress, and very interesting chat with attentive owner, Matt. I'll be back soon just so I can have another delicious scotch egg!

A lovely addition to Westbourne. Great service and food each time we visit. Highly recommend their cheese & charcuterie boards for any social event. They not only looked amazing, but were delicious and offered so many tastes and textures. Friendly and flexible and know how to provide excellent customer service.

My friend and I came to Westbourne and found the lovely Delish. We visited twice during our stay and can honestly stay it was a joy on both occasions. The customer service was outstanding as was the overall ambiance of the place. The decor was well thought out as were the finishing touches (the complimentary fudge certainly went down well.) We would definitely come back if we were to return to the area.

Hello Matt and Hillary, Just wanted to say thank you so much for our private gathering you catered for. Sue was totally overwhelmed with her surprise and your attention to detail was amazing, you really had thought of everything and we were looked after superbly, you made us all feel like vips and we certainly had first class service. Everybody thought the food was excellent and cocktails divine! Thanks so much again, you have new fans that will be dropping in again soon. Take care Andrea and Nick.

Finally got to visit this amazing place and had a wonderful lazy lunch accompanied by a gorgeous rose wine (highly recommend). Lunch was the Westbourner and Pilly Pilly Chicken for hubby. Oh, and a fabulous cocktail or two hit the spot too! This is such a lovely place and if you are thinking of going, do it. You won't be disappointed at all. Everything was just perfect - the service, the food, the presentation and of course those cocktails! A truly 'first class' experience and now our new go to place for lunch and more. P.S.the marmalade and goodies at the deli counter were a real find too. Thank you.

Got a coffee and two little cakes. Amazing customer service and the cakes were very tasty. Highly recommend.

Great little gem in the heart of Westbourne.

Amazing food, coffee is smooth and staff really friendly. A great place to sit down with friends for food and drinks or a tasty take away whilst you are on the go.

I'm a regular at Delish! We love their soft yummy cakes, but Matt (the head chef) outdoes himself every time with his yummy salad! Fabulous, friendly service. Love it!

Fabulous food, drinks and the most welcoming staff! Absolutely loved the experience/ atmosphere and cant wait to return.

This place was open recently and is giving so much to Westbourne. I've been twice already and order really nice paninis while I got really nice local treats. Don't miss this place if you are looking for something different and a really nice costumer service experience.

Hi - I had your afternoon tea yesterday and it was amazing!

I had one of your goodie boxes delivered yesterday, organised by our son. All the food was delicious, thank you Tina.

Ordered afternoon tea for delivery, what a treat. Fresh sandwiches, lovely light scone and delicious cakes. All presented and packaged elegantly. Thank you, made a very nice treat at the end of difficult week. Would highly recommend.

Tasty coffee with an added free home made vanilla fudge, a lovely selection of home made food and a deli counter with cheeses and other delicatessen ideal for home or as a present. Very friendly and professional staf. Take aways, collection or deliveries only during the lockdown.

Lunch for 4 on Saturday - delicious food, friendly staff, beautiful cups, plates, decor .. very stylish and comfortable .. will definitely return.

Visited on Saturday and my Flat white was perfect-the fudge added to the experience. Will definitely revisit.

Thank you so much for my wonderful afternoon tea experience. Iloved the turkey, brie, cranberry and chilli jam filling so much, that I bought a jar of my own to recreate at home, fingers crossed.
The owners, Hilary and Matt are so welcoming and have managed to give this little bijoux loveliness, a sense of home.

First visit today. What a lovely experience. Just had a latte and a massive toasted tea cake. Absolutely delicious! Had some amazing cakes pastries pies quiche etc... defo going back and highly recommend a visit. Staff were lovely too.

Excellent food and service, would definitely recommend a visit.

Incredibly friendly staff, and hands down the best sandwich I've ever eaten! Highly recommend the Turkey Melt sandwich, absolutely divine.

Popped in today to introduce myself. Wow wow - it looks amazing and once lockdown No.2 is over then I will look forward to eating and drinking there. There is a deli counter plus products to buy on the displays. Unusual relishes and pickles and once its open for eating in the owners will increase their stock. I brought home some mixed pitted olives and 2 individual cakes which looked yummy and were yummy. Lovely owners and can't wait to go there again.

Great selection of delicious sweet and savoury goodies.
Lovely friendly service. Be back soon 🥰
