A delicatessen (often shortened to deli) is a type of individual shop which specializes in selling various food items.

The word "delicatessen" is derived from an Old Tongue term, delikatesen, which transliterates to "little shop of tasty treats". A delika was any type of tasty treat, and could be used to refer to any kind of delicious food. Delicatessen is invariable; the word is the same in singular and plural forms. However, it is acceptable to add an "s" at the end of "deli" in plural form (a deli/two delis is correct).
