About Us

Born and raised in Wethersfield, CT, John and his wife Ilona (from Plainville), established The Cove Deli in April of 2010.

John’s culinary background began in his own parents’ kitchen, working with his family, creating foods from the Polish tradition as well as our more recognizable American fare.

From the household to a more commercial setting, John began his career at the Mediplex of Wethersfield, where patients’ nutritional needs were the focus, and worked throughout the culinary spectrum, most recently working in Hollywood, California as a caterer in the film and television industries. Here, he learned the true essence of customer service, where high standards and healthy food were the priority.

A few years ago, John and Ilona came back to Connecticut to their roots and have settled down, having a baby and starting a new business. They bring their respective life experiences to The Cove Deli and its customers and strive to provide a positive and comfortable experience.

Come on in and enjoy one of our sandwiches! Have breakfast or lunch here at the deli or place an order for us to cater your next event. Whichever you choose let our food provide a respite from your hectic day!

We’d also like to thank the Wethersfield community for their continued support and if you haven’t found us yet, we’re tucked away in a cozy corner of historic Old Wethersfield just down the street from the cove.
