Yummy crabcake sandwiches!

Loved it - fried stuffed olives were delicious. Quaint, clean and cute décor. Everything is decorated with lemons. Very small tables and personal touches everywhere. Our wait staff was very personable and attentive.

Have eaten quite few times, both at the current location and the old. Food continues to be reliable, with the crab cakes excellent as good as any in Md.. Limited menu probably helps keep the food consistent. Dining room can be noisy. It's basic turkey and roast beef dinners are real old time value item.

The food was excellent and they had a great tasting lemon pie! There were about 9 of us in our group and everyone was satisfied with their food. I would recommend this to a friend. It is downtown Chestertown.

Fine fair; great open face crab-cake sandwich...!!! That is what we savored and, enjoyed along with a very generous salade.... Only one in house dressing for the greens piled high...... All in the cafe is just fine... As for the decor, they squeezed the last of the lemon, as in color to adorn all that is....., sorry but, provincial at... More

My wife had the cream of crab soup (good, but certainly not the best we have ever tasted – a little too thick and lacking in flavor for our liking) and the prime rib (very good flavor - high marks here!). I had the Caesar salad (good) and crab cakes (very good!). However, the peach cobbler we shared for desert... More

My husband and I enjoyed lunch at the Lemon Leaf Cafe earlier this week. Service is excellent! If you're fussy about your iced tea being freshly-brewed (as I am), you'll be happy to know that their iced tea is crisp and fresh. I ordered the "no filler" crab cake. Although it tasted fine, it had that tell-tale beige bread color.... More

This is a local's favorite in Chestertown, so I took a local's advice and enjoyed every bite of two healthy sized crab cakes! That's all I had but I'd certainly go back for them again! A bit pricey but they are pretty much solid crab meat, so Enjoy!

Very nice meal to end a day at the annual Tea Party celebration. The Sunday Dinner sandwich was great and the Cream of Crab is as advertised; outstanding! We'll be back for sure...

I love cream of crab soup and their recipe is amazing. It is worth the trip just for the soup. We went for lunch, chicken salad croissant and crab cake salad in addition to soup. Cute little restaurant in downtown Chestertown. Pricey.
