The formerly Instagram-only food operation Deli Desires is busily preparing for a soft opening this weekend at their new Colonialtown brick-and-mortar location.

The specialist in Jewish deli fare has been whipping up classic staples like bialys, challah bread, latkes and labneh since the summer of 2020. Orders were placed through Instagram DM, and then delivery or pickup would only be a matter of time.

Delis Desires will now be operating out of 715 N. Fern Creek Ave. (formerly the Sanctum Cafe) starting officially this weekend, Feb. 5-7.

They'll be open Friday through Sunday bright and early, from 7 a.m.-4 p.m. or sell-out. All orders will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis as takeout only, for the time being. Online ordering, call-ins and delivery options will be coming soon in the next few weeks.
