Knowledgable and friendly people with a great selection of wine and food perfect for a picnic. Thanks for the wine suggestions, we loved both the red and white.

For a delicious lunch or afternoon glass of wine and cheese board, Chelsea's is an awesome choice. My favorite sandwich is a chicken salad with bacon and Dijon on crisp baked bread. Both the chicken salad and the Dijon mustard are high quality. You can also enjoy great homemade soups and a salad bar. You can "takeaway" a lovely dinner... More

Went to Chelsea's on a recommendation from one of the shopkeepers at Veranda - and I have to say ''thank you!' We ordered the roast beef sandwich with horseradish sauce (we shared), some pasta salad, broccoli salad, and the kale salad with blood orange vinaigrette. Yummo!! We enjoyed it so much, we went back with our friends two days later,... More

For those of us who are locals, Chelseas is a go-to place for lunch or a take out dinner. It is even better since the change in management. I really enjoy the salad bar. All of the ingredients are fresh, and such a nice selection. Usually they have poached salmon or grilled chicken as an add on. The salad dressings... More

This shop/café is one street off Ocean Drive, so they are definitely in the "high rent district" of Vero Beach and close to many of the hotels. So, the prices respond accordingly. They have lots of unusual items to choose from, including prepared foods, wines, pastas, and sweets. We paid $7 for 2 croissants, only to find that they came... More

BBQ pulled pork was tasty and unique. The #6 veggie sandwich had zero taste and tasted like cardboard. Pretty confusing ordering process and restaurant setup. They should give a carbon copy of what you order so you can take that to the register. They need to give you a napkin and fork when they bring your sandwich because they can... More

Since the new owner (David Busch) has been hands on this place has really become the place to grab fresh, homemade salads, breads, entrees, and sandwiches! A great bottle of wine is also a must since David kept on the best employees including Dorothy who is an excellent sommelier! Worth dropping in to discover all the gourmet treasures they offer....

I've been in Chelsea's on a number of occasions, but never to eat, just to grab a bottle of wine or this or that. But today, I decided to try some lunch and had their Turpleberry Sandwich minus the cheese as I stay away from dairy, and I must say I was pleasantly surprised! The turkey was thickly sliced, and...
