The Cafe on 26 doesn't have a large menu but the food is well prepared, tasty, with generous portions that are moderately priced. The atmosphere is cosy in a converted house and the wait staff were superb. Cafe on 26 is an excellent choice for easy dining.

We were told about this place by friends. If you need to eat wheat free, this is the place to go! You don't have to try to figure out what you can have....you can have everything on the menu! My husband was in heaven. From appetizers to desserts eat to your hearts delight. I am not allergic and found all... More

I am very, very pleased to review this most excellent restaurant located approximately 2 -2.5 miles off of Delaware Route 1 just outside of Bethany Beach on Route 26. This is my second time going to this restaurant while visiting Bethany for vacation and I must say I have not been disappointed on either visit. The food is excellent, I... More

I enjoyed dinner here with my husband, daughter and two sisters. I was glad to be able to make a reservation. We were seated promptly, and served by an enthusiastic and friendly waiter. Our service was prompt, and our food was good. There were both seafood and non-seafood choices for the mixed tastes in my group. We were seated in... More

Simply delicious! We had a lovely table for two next to the windows. The menu had a good variety from which to choose. Great "fresh" choices with nice presentation. The food items came out fresh, hot and just down right delicious! A very nice experience we will be going back soon.

Walking from the parking lot in back to the front converted house is nice. We ate in the area on the front porch. Space is a little tight sitting there, but not uncomfortable. Other patrons in a large group were heading upstairs. The appetizers and entrees were terrific and the service was very good. If your waitress is busy, then... More

I am a local and have visited Cafe on 26 many times. I am always pleased by my experience. The food is not only heavenly, but we have so many gluten free options for my daughter! The service is wonderful, the wait staff very attentive. It is a relaxing atmosphere very appropriate for a beach community!

Consistently excellent food produced by trained Chefs. My husband and friends have tried many of their dishes, each, prepared remarkably well. I love the prime rib, pork, crab cake and their signature dish the salmon is amazing. Service is excellent. Chef's are interested in what you have to say and are willing to try their customers recipes. My favorite place... More

Over the past two years, each time we go back to the Cafe on 26, the quality of the food is excellent. They do a good "pour" on the adult beverages. Love the salmon and the crab cakes. Tell them if you need gluten free, and they will accommodate! This week we tried the "ethnic comfort food night". Truthfully, had... More
