On a minuscule stretch of A1A in Boynton Beach a short stretch of mom-and-pop shops gives off a true hometown feel. Here, sun-kissed bikini-clad babes and local surfers head to the legendary Nomad surf shop. To prepare for the day at the beach, afterwards they head next door for some eats at Seaside Deli. The founder's son, Richie Parker, has since sold the convenience store and sandwich mecca, but the new owners still craft each of his original creating, more than 50 different sandwiches prepared using a variety of moist fresh breads and premium Boar's Head meats, all wrapped in wax paper and sealed with a piece of tape — precisely how a deli man should do it. If you get there on a weekend, be prepared to wait. Hungry lunch crowds are still known to snakes around the store's aisles, but at least it gives you plenty of time to peruse the other goodies, from homemade soups and entrees like lasagna to a wide selection of craft beer and specialty sodas. The awesome drink selection takes up two walls and includes everything from Yoo-Hoo to import beers and mini kegs, while a machine at the front squeezes fresh orange juice before your very eyes.
