The sandwiches were great. Probably the freshest bread ever for a sandwich shop. Our table also tried the soup of the day which was shrimp corn chowder which was amazing with just the right amount of spice to it.

For a squadron reunion we ordered a total of 61 box lunches for two events. Everyone raved about the food. Each lunch was a special order from a selection of about seven different sandwiches. Each box had the recipients name on it.

Great place at oceanfront to grab a solid non prefab sandwich. Market with to go gives additional options for snacks and quick bites. Would go here when wanting quick sando over competition.

We came here a bit harried because our first choice had lines down the block and we had a hungry toddler in tow. The staff was very kind, and though they were quite busy, our food was ready in just a few minutes. It was...extremely high quality (free range chicken on the salad) and well prepared. Fantastic sandwiches and salads!More

Had a wonderful time at Taste. It was a great restaurant and my family enjoyed the entire experience. I would highly recommend others to come here as well.

I've been going here for over 30 years and they have always had super fresh deli meat and cheese's. Their house dressing they put on sandwiches is amazing. I jokingly tell them to dip the whole sandwich in it. My Fav - Smoked Turkey, Swiss...Cheese, French bread, House Dressing - lots.More

Nice quality but not large sandwiches. Bread to me seemed a little stale. Overpriced chips and drinks can jack up your bill pretty fast ($55 for 4 sandwiches is high in my opinion). Wasn't impressed with the service or staff--e.g. eat-in means pay at the...register, find a seat, and wait for quite a while to get your order in a shopping bag by an aloof deliverer (a smile might have been at least welcomed for the tip I paid). For my money, I'll lunch at a real restaurant next time--and there are many good ones to choose from in the area.More

Great, fresh sandwiches, sides and other tasty stuff in the shop. Only bummer is that it can get busy, and you can end up waiting a bit for your order.

Best chicken salad sandwich I've ever had. Fresh tomato! Crisp bacon! The bread was fresh and delicious. I'll definitely be returning to this yummy lunch place.
