David Busch took over ownership of Chelsea's in 2013. A Member of the Anheuser-Busch Dynasty, Dave has had the privilege of spending parts of his childhood on his grandfather's private zoo in St. Louis, surrounded by over 300 animals including elephants, chimpanzees, and kangaroos, thus influencing David's avid appreciation for wildlife. His love for gourmet foods, fine wine, craft beers & organic ingredients has been influential in his food revolution at Chelsea's Market on Cardinal. Bringing in the finest ingredients and most decadent wine, David - with the help of his incredible team, has transformed Vero Beach's favorite seaside bistro into a vibrant one stop shop for all your entertaining needs with a full catering menu & service, gourmet sandwiches, bistro to go, deletable desserts, gift baskets, unique hostess gifts, and gourmet hors d'oeuvres!

Chill at Chelseas - Under New Ownership

I'm excited for the new owners at Chelsea's! They do a fantastic job at Dario's and I think they will make this place a great spot with friendly service.

If you want a light meal or afternoon or morning coffee break this is a good spot. Light sandwiches. , brewed tea and coffee are available. Service is pleasent and efficient. The spot is in the midst of the museum. And otherwise does not stand out for me.

We stop at Chelsea's for lunch fairly often. We like the outside seating, since we usually have our small dog with us. (Our pet stays in the carrier and is quiet.) One of us goes inside to place our order and the food is brought to our table in just a few moments. The food is always delicious. Pleasant atmosphere.... More

Interesting fare. Sandwich or something more substantial. It is all here. Place order and it is prepared and delivered to your table. The group I was with sat in the wine grotto and it was private and fun. Also convenient to get frozen entree prepared by the chef to throw in the microwave for quick gourmet treat at home.

this is one of Vero Beaches best delis. There are many fine prepared foods. The deli sandwiches are very tasty. My wife loved their salad bar. Nick at the deli was very helpful and knowledgeable. We had lunch both in the deli area and also took lunch back to the hotel.

We had a late lunch here. It rambles along the street in a "strip mall". It is one block off the ocean street. The serving counters seem to run on and on.I had an overstuffed egg salad sandwich, my wife made a salad of greens, olives, mushrooms, cukes, beets, blue cheese and oil & vinegar. We, also, had a very... More

I just spent 3 hours here talking to Christian. My wife and I love the Deli items and Speciality Wines only available here. We are excited for Christian and our community to have this young man taking on this big project. Now it's 23 year old Christian's turn to shape Chelseas. You can be sure there will be more Italian... More

Can not say enough about Chelseas. They have found a way to make product with all the right ingredients for food sensitivities and still have flavor. One of my favorites in the area!

I love to stop here for lunch during the week. They have a diverse selection of wine and salads. I will happily pay the price for this centrally located gem to last in Vero. The staff wasn't exceptionally helpful with the wine but I may have just caught them at a bad time. all the same excited to see how... More
