You can dine in this cute little place, but there's no air conditioning. There are a few picnic tables out front. My kids and I bike here in the mornings to get breakfast sandwiches or bagels and I get my latte. Food is good. Service is fairly quick and sometimes friendly, depending on who is working. I hated that the... More

Although you have to wait a while to order during peak times, the wait is worth it. The bagels are great, if they get your order right. I think the language barrier for some of the employees is the issue. Very friendly; they just need to tweak the consistency of their service!

Have been going here for many years and the one thing that always stays the same is the high quality of the breakfast food and the consistently good sandwiches. The muffins are without a doubt the best in town and when the coffee carafes aren't empty the coffee is excellent. Unfortunately the staff behind the counter is never as good... More

We stopped in for lunch; ordered five sandwiches, none of which were very tasty. Breads were a bit dry, had to ask for mayo on both sides to compensate, turkey did not taste smoked, tasteless tomatoes. Prices not that great either. Cinnamon roll and coffee were quite good, but would not return for lunch.

The food here is very good here and the staff is very friendly and accommodating, there always seems to be a line though, service is a bit slow, of course you have to take into consideration that this is a vacation town, so for some the wait isn't an issue, prices are consistent with Chatham and the bagel selection is...

Great choice of delicious homemade soups . Clam chowder served hot & tasted great on cold day. Interesting sandwich combos as well. Smoked turkey with avo & red bell pepper yummy. Can sit outside if nice. Great choice for quick bite.

The coffee is outstanding at the Chatham Village Café, and the café is located in a fun part of town, as I like to walk with my coffee in hand. As of several years ago, the café served a egg pattie, for lack of a better description. I think the café would attract more breakfast customers if they cooked fresh... More

Returning to Chatham for our 3rd year in a row, one of our fond memories was having our whole family gather at Chatham Village Cafe for our morning coffee and breakfast sandwiches. Imagine our surprise when we encountered a very unfriendly staff and almost all the coffee carafes were empty! Obviously under new ownership (we didn't see any of the... More

We come here whenever we are craving their Huevos Rancheros for breakfast. It would help if they had more employees speaking better English so it didn't take 20 minutes to give an order and they still enforce the rule of minimum purchase of $5 for credit cards which is unfair and I'm pretty sure against the law. They inside is... More

Thank you for coming to our Café and we are happy to hear you enjoy our Huevos Rancheros breakfast sandwich. Sorry to hear, though, that it took a bit of time to take your order. All of our American employees have left to return to school. Our J1 Visa students, who all speak English well but with an accent, are... More
