Even though I pass by it nearly every day, this morning I realized that Mom´s Deli was gone and in its place is an ugly garage-looking box for rent. What happened to MD? While I´m not sorry to see it gone, I am surprised since it always seemed to have a lot of customers.

Don't know what your smoking but what you were looking at is a newly constructed building for rent immediately west of Mom's. She didn't go anywhere!

Mom's was going to move into the new space next door as soon as it's ready. Maybe she already moved?

We just ate there last week in the same location.

We just had lunch there today! They are planning on moving next door as soon as ready and all the municipal paperwork is done. They originally thought this month, but it's Mexico.

Hmmmm...I was biking so maybe I inhaled too many bus fumes? lol Seriously, I thought Mom´s was on the end of the Maskaras Clinic block. So, whatever was at the end is now a very ugly concrete building. I did a double take because I never saw it before. Note to self: make sure contact prescription is correct.

There are buildings on both corners on either side where Mom's is located, One is two large garage doors, and the other one is rumored to be the new Maskaras clinic etc.

Hey Tingting Please clarify "what happened to MD while I'm not sorry to see it gone" Your right Mae does have a lot of customers, I being one, and we are glad she is not gone!

Nope. I was merely curious, not interested in starting a discussion about the pros and cons of that particular diner.

When I passed today, I saw where I missed the place. It´s a bit hidden by trees. I didn´t see a sign, just one for the Bridge Club sign and then, of course, that ugly building on the corner.

I'm sure that "ugly building" will soon be sporting a fresh new billboard-like sign advertising Mom's Deli to replace the one the new structure now blocks from view. Mae and her daughter have done a great job offering a menu that suits many Lakesiders' taste buds at a fair price. Get there before 11am and try their delicious shrimp creole breakfast; it's outstanding. They also have a great staff, many of whom have been with them for years - another indication of a well-run business. Best wishes to them in their new location; they are a real asset to the Lakeside scene.

Thank you for your concern. We will be moving probably early April but aren't advertising anything until we have a definite date. As soon as we are ready, I will post the information in the restaurant section of this board.

Mom's used to be on the end with her sign painted on the side of the building where the vacant lot was. The lot now has the side by side new building and Mom's is moving to the one on the west side.
