Spencer Edition: Church Street Deli
A small deli in Spencer open only for lunch Monday through Friday posed a problem for me. But, where there's a will (ahem, an appearance on the 101 Most Unique Places to Dine in WV list), there's a way.
I took a day off for some culinary adventure and made my way to Spencer to visit the Church Street Deli. After being misled by Apple Maps, I found my way there - and even parallel parked!
Inside, it opens up into a dim dining space with a few black tables and chairs, and further back sits the counter space. Off to the right and back, there is even more seating. Up at the counter, I made a quick decision to try the loaded potato soup, which was the special for the day.
For a cold, rainy day, there was no better cure. It was cheesy and rich - my only faint complaint is that it seemed to have this layer of film on top that I didn't totally love. Maybe that was sitting for a few before serving? Not sure, but the flavor was on point. This little deli certainly knows how to dish up a decent soup.
Bonus? The women's restroom was totally decked out in Marilyn Monroe. Cool. Haha.
