The sandwiches here are very good! The bread is so good! I got the turkey sandwich, and loved it! Definitely worth a stop if you are in the area!

Not familiar with this place but it looked interesting. Stopped in and decided to get a HALF sandwich which is $4.99. I asked if I could get it with all cheese, and they said sure no problem. Take a look at the photo; it was a HALF slice of one PIECE of cheese in between a baguette! I've never had... More

Sometimes really great. Other times the food just did not look great. Maybe sitting around.. Go early for take out lunch otherwise you get the left overs.

Great atmosphere, good food. Lots of choices. A little pricey but worth it. I had the barbeque and it was good. My daughter had a sandwich with avocado and turkey, I think. Iced Tea was very good. Great place to go.

Was told that I had to stop here while in Virginia Beach and they were right. Great sandwich, wide selection, quick service. Definitely recommend.

Taste is an awesome place, regarless of the location or time of day. They are always prompt, friendly, and the food is great, but the Bayville Farms location is my favorite. The seating outside is nice, dogs are allowed to join you at your table, and there are always kids playing cornhole. Walk, run, or bike, this place is wonderful.... More

Taste is a VAB institution. You can't go to VA Beach without a stop at TASTE! They deliver to the beach in the summer too! Why leave your beach chair? Great Sandwiches and flair..gifts etc.

Fresh, good, decently priced food. We tried 3 different sandwiches and a salad on separate occasions and all of them were fantastic. Their coffee was great too. Easy meal to eat in or take out. Really liked this place, as it's difficult to find a non chain sandwich joint.

We ate here for lunch on our last visit. The sandwiches are made to order and were delicious! I wish I would have room to try the desserts because the baked goods and gelato looked so good! It's a little pricey but the yumminess won out!

Very interesting concept. Order, get hour drink and chips, find a table, 5 minutes later they call you and you get the rest of your food and pay. Food was OK, nothing fancy and bland. Everything had that "healthy" feel to it, but not necessarily healthy, unless a lack of salt is healthy. It is one of those new wave... More
