Our Story

Mamaleh's: a Yiddish word which is a term of endearment for a young child.  Also a modern era Jewish Delicatessen in Kendall Square, Cambridge, MA opened  Summer 2016

Delicatessen smells, tastes and even the word itself may put a smile on your face.  We hope when you walk through our front doors that your smile widens, your nostrils flare, and you sidle up to a counter stool or sink into a booth and sink your teeth into a hand sliced pastrami sandwich, half-sour pickle, warming matzah ball soup or a beautiful fresh take on a deli salad. We welcome you to join us for a quick meal or a nosh, an old fashioned soda, egg cream or a milkshake. Visit with an old friend over a cocktail at the bar or make a new one.  NU?! Eat something already.

congratulations! (literally, 'good constellation' from Hebrew, meaning, May you be born under a good star, or at a good time. When you tell someone Mazel Tov, it is customary to shake hands.) Literally, good luck.
