The Story of Ella's Deli

In the early 1960s Ella Hirschfeld owned and operated Ella's on State Street as a small kosher style deli/grocery/restaurant. At that time Ella's provided an outlet for the Jewish community and others to buy kosher products over the counter, as well as offering restaurant service for about a dozen tables.

In the mid-sixties the current owners eliminated the grocery concept and expanded into a full service kosher style deli/restaurant offering catering for all events, delivery services, and expanding to a full menu, with an additional and separate dessert menu.

In 1976 Ella's opened another location, thanks to the support of Madison's community. Again the concept grew. Ella's Deli now provides an entertainment experience, as well as delicious foods so that entire families enjoy coming to dine. In recent years, Ella's Deli on East Washington Avenue became the only Ella's Deli.

Under the same ownership for over 45 years, Ella's operates with in-house bakers, full time cooks that prepare our foods from scratch, and animations designed and built on the premises.
