The concept of Amer’s Mediterranean Deli was created in 1987. It is the marriage of a coffee house and a quality delicatessen. It originated near the University of Michigan, Flint campus and moved to the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor campus in 1989. We have worked and thrived within this amazing community ever since. We strive to achieve an enriching environment splashed with an air of fun in which to tantalize all of the customer’s senses. To this end, Amer's lends itself to a collegiate atmosphere with brick walls, large windows, cherry seating, a brightly lit European pastry display case, track lighting, attractive menu boards and uniquely at our Church street location, a beautiful stone fireplace.
Amer's uses products and foods of the highest quality and strives to serve our customers with grace and speed. All of our products from the coffee, tea, chocolate, pastries, breads, meats, cheeses and over 30 freshly made salads to the finest produce have been tested and perfected over our 28 year lifespan. Ultimately, we are not a coffee house with food choices or a delicatessen with coffee choices. We are Amer's!
Amer's has been the forefather of many unique coffee house items and is proud to be the originator of many trends in the Ann Arbor area. Some of these items include the use of soy products, chai teas, loose teas, fair trade coffee, raw juices, Snapple drinks, Orangina and gourmet powdered chocolate.
With our combination of an exceptional menu, quality products, generous portions, and competitive prices and friendly service, Amer's has won numerous awards in the Ann Arbor and greater Metro Detroit areas. We have been voted "Best Sandwich", "Best Deli", "Best Coffee","Best Restaurant", and "Best Juice Bar" and are consistently mentioned by publications such as the Michigan Daily, Ann Arbor Observer, Ann Arbor News, Metro Times and Oakland Jewish News. We've also received national recognition by Menus Today Magazine and Restaurant Magazine. Amer's has become an Ann Arbor destination point, a place to visit and revisit again and again.
