Vault Deli, RIP

Posted on one of the doors of the Vault deli yesterday . . .

Located on the first floor of the Washington Building (home of the Index), the Vault Deli was never a lunch-time staple for me, but a convenient and quick place to grab a slice of pizza or a half-sandwich during a long day of work when I didn't want to stray too far from the office. Still, the place always seemed to do a steady walk-up lunch business.

Sad. They sure served alot od pizza there.

However, for some reason, I stopped going there over the last couple of years.

I didn't even know they existed. I know about the vault catering and such, but a deli?

Guess you gotta work in the building to know it. Talk about poor advertising.

I used to go there a bit when meeting Sarah for lunch. It was great 'cause they carried pizza by the slice from Round Table (a greasy vice of mine). Seating was awkward but I remember their salads being solid and the lobby area where you could grab a table different in a classy, old school sort of way. But, I'm with Erik, probably haven't been in the last 4 years or so.

Just one more reason for PSP to take up that old by-the-slice call some of us have echoed.

In a civilized city you can get good pizza by the slice in the downtown core. Costco, which is cheap and tasty isn't downtown. Oh, and if that pizza by the slice is sitting under the heat lamp you should run in most cases. Good pizza by the slice goes back into the pizza oven for a bit before they serve it to you. Costco's pizza turns over so quickly I don't hold this against them.

A good pizza should not go through you in 20 minuets or require Maalox.
That being said, Costco pizza is not good.
