Rated 5 out of 5 by amazed78 31050 Corner Deli
The Lego Creator set Corner Deli includes 467 pieces. There are no stickers in the set, which is predictable, because the bricks are meant to be reused to build
three different buildings (two of which I didn't actually build so this review is for the Corner Deli only). The two minifigures are the deli owner (a man) and his customer, a young girl. The girl is wearing a blue jacket over a dark shirt and has short blue legs. Her orangey brown hair is on a shortish ponytail. The deli owner is dressed in white trousers, an olive green shirt with a printed name tag, smiley face button, and some grease/sauce stains, and he is also wearing a red cap. His torso has appeared only in two sets before this one (Creative Ambush and Temple of Airjitzu). Both minifigure torsos do have dual sided printing, but unfortunately the heads don't.
The three instruction booklets (one for each building) are protected by a plastic bag. The bags containing all the pieces for this set are not numbered, so the build will most likely take a little longer to complete than with numbered ones. The build is, in my opinion, quite easy, there is very little repetition, and a surprisingly small amount of fiddling with teeny tiny 1x1 plates or flat tiles. However, there are a few instances of stacking 1x1 bricks on top of each other, which I don't like at all. I find it very hard to get them to line up properly unless I press them together on a hard and flat surface. This time I paid extra attention to the instructions which meant that the only mistake I made was when assembling the dark red lamp upstairs, but I'm sure I will botch my next build (and royally). The eating area is connected to the building by two pegs and can be placed in the corner of the opened deli building. However, if one doesn't want a corner building, but a straight one, there is a space for the connector pegs also in the outside wall next to the yellow door as well (also the sandwich-shaped sign has to be moved to another place).
The Corner Deli looks great even when placed next to Brick Bank. It's about two-thirds of the height of Brick Bank and exactly the same height as the Lego Shop building and car dealership from set 60097 City Square. I noticed that the TV antenna sticks out a little and might need some adjusting if the Corner Deli is placed right next to another, taller building. I just love both the decorations on the edge of the roof, and the light grey upper floor window frames, the detailing is incredible. The brick-built bird is hilarious as is the detachable sandwich-shaped sign. The armchair is yet again a good looking new design. The only things that bother me is perhaps the amount of minifigures (a third one would have been great), the minuscule size of the sidewalks surrounding the deli, and the fact that there is no TV in the deli, so why the antenna?
Overall, I really enjoyed this build, and think that Corner Deli is a nice addition to anyone's Lego City.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BrickFozzer Really good creator set
I had a nice time building this and will have a great time looking at it. I did a slow build and I've spread it out across 3 days in 2 hour sessions. I know I could do it much faster but that's not the point.
- Very nice as a display piece
- Nice, slightly challenging design
- Funny: the bird on the antenna is a recognisable addition.
- the other designs are a lot weaker. I can think of only one creator set(The 4 seasons house) where all designs were equally good.
- I would have liked an extra minifig; a boy(child) would have been super. Now the house is a bit empty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ellis A Great Building
This is a great building to build and the other builds are great as well but I was trying to decide to build the Deli or the Flower shop but I went with the deli and it is a nice build I also think this set with the color and all looks like a small verison of the Detectives Office set my favorite build has to be the sandwich in the front like as an advertisement.Overall I wasn't sure at first about buying this set but afterwards I really like how it fits well for my city.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jose0815 A Great Idea....
A great idea but missed the mark just a little bit for me. I buy just about every building LEGO makes, so I can keep expanding my LEGO city. This one excited me upon seeing the box, but once I was finished, I was rather disappointed with the overall size. The size of the building is not so bad when it is open, but if you close it up, it is just really small. I guess I just thought it was going to be a little bit bigger building??
Only two minis, which is a drag. I like the sandwiches though, the are really a good idea! I also like the outdoor table to sit at and eat your sammie :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Aelia Cute and neat lil set
Really good to purchase and you can't regret it.
1- To get a corner shop is a great add on with other little set that are also available.
2- Simple concept but well thought overall. To have added a little plate to get a small place to eat is really useful.
3-The building looks as great open as when it is closed.
4- That's a set that you can build 2 others variant with. All depend on what you need in your city. Personally I was preferring the deli corner for now but I'm thinking to buy an other because I like the one that look like a tower. It can be used for a security gate or an agent that make sure people pay for their public parking lot. Etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Residentof221BBakerStreet Awesome set!
This is a great set which I bought mainly for the amount of bricks that come in it, but when I started to open the bags of pieces, I noticed that there were many other pieces that I could use for other models.
Great job, LEGO!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Endor Beautiful small building with one small flaw
The set itself is certainly beautiful with nice colors.
It has however one small flaw that I found when I was building it.
The bottom or the base of each corner consists of one larger plate with a smaller strip. The problem is that the two pieces forming the base are not secured by enough connecting pieces in my opinion. When I was building the roof of the first level, pressing down the tile pieces for the ceiling actually caused the model to collapse. So builders be careful when you squeeze the top and bottom of the model as it can easily collapse.
Other than that, I found the model very well designed with many small details and is very beautiful to look at.

This set looks amazing when combined with the Toy Store and Grocers Set. My only complaint about this set is that the parts aren't in numbered bags, which makes construct take longer because parts aren't easy to find at times.
