This small deli is located on the main road through Yarmouth and is a quick on/off from Interstate 295 when you're traveling. You line up to order from a menu on the wall and we were lucky to get in a short line-I looked after we ordered and the line was out the door. We had the soup and half... More

Tried this praised eatery on a Wednesday in late Fall, arriving around 12:45. Parking lot was almost full; but we decided to give it a go nonetheless. Inside, it was a bustling, somewhat noisy, atmosphere. There was a line waiting to order; but, as previous reviewers have commented, the line moves quickly. The cafe has a strong take-out following as... More

We dropped in to Clayton's after our first choice was closed for a private party. A very nice surprise. It's obvious this is where the locals go, and whenever you find such a place, you know it has to be good, and Clayton's was very good. The menu is extensive and the service is top shelf. During outdoor season, there... More

Nice variety of foods and treats. I enjoyed my crab cake sandwich, my husband liked his Cuban and they staff came up with something very bland for our oh so picky son. Really nice, reasonably priced desserts too!

If you like foods that you can't pronounce, or have never eaten before, if you like sandwich fixin's that are organic and/or vegan, then this place is right for you. I didn't care much for it, and was not ready to pay higher prices for food I didn't eat that much of (and the portions are not big to start... More

Clayton's offers a wide variety of sandwiches, salads, panini's and more. I've never had a bad experience here, it is always consistently good. There is usually quite a line around lunchtime but it moves quickly and the atmosphere is always pleasant and positive. You can gaze in awe at the delicious desserts while you wait! If you are gluten free... More

Stopped by chance here and there was a long line. It seemed to move quickly so I waited. Glad I did! I had the Cobb wrap and there was enough for 2 meals. All the ingredients were fresh and the service was excellent. I will definitely go there again.

My husband and I ate here a few days ago while on vacation. I had the chicken salad sandwich and he had the Cuban. We both loved our lunch! There was quite a line when we got there but it goes very fast as they have lots of people working and have it down to a science. We barely got... More

A friend and I were in the area for an appointment and inquired about a good place for lunch. Clayton's was one of three area eateries suggested. We quickly checked it out on tripadvisor and we join all the other reviewers who sing it's praises and award it 5 stars! Great service, clean environment, very friendly & helpful staff, and... More

This owner knows the business. Very good food and exceptional pastry items. Service is pretty fast, but sometimes the line is long and you need to wait before ordering at a counter, but after ordering the food comes relatively fast. Wonderful sandwiches.
