New name and new owner

Tastebuds is no more. It is now under new ownership and the name is Sweet Feed. It seems to be mostly similar to the long successful Tastebuds.

A tiny shop in a residential neighborhood, Tastebuds delivers serious breakfast and lunch food! The wraps are delicious as are the homemade soups and salads. I particularly like the chicken salad. There's not much room for seating so I suggest you have a backup plan for where you're going to eat. They do great catering as well!

I have been a customer since Jan opened it. I stop in often for take out for myself or a group when I don't' feel like cooking. The food is always fresh, delicious and varied.

The muffins are the best on the North Shore, and the sandwiches are a little above average for an above average price.

Everything is delicious; soups made fresh every day and the best soup I have ever had. The sandwiches are excellent, everything fresh and locally sourced. Jan, the owner, is a wonderful individual, really focused on quality and service. The cookies and pasta salads are a great accompaniment if you are really feeling hungry.

I have never had a meal at Tastebuds that wasn't fantastic. Their soups are amazing, their sandwiches are truly the best money can buy. I just read something about the SIZE, do you really need a 12 inch sandwich? I do not. I always go for quality before quantity. We have many favorites but one that stands out in my... More

Fantastic menu however extremely overpriced. There is very little seating in the cafe and all food is served on an evil styrofoam plate
