Mercantile is a bakery/deli. The problem with Mercantile is their slow service. Making a sandwich just shouldn't take as long as it takes at this place. They need to figure out a better way of running this nice establishment because the food is very good. If they could pick up the pace then they would be excellent.

A nice place for a relaxing cup of coffer and various treats. The balcony is nice. Not fancy, but worth a stop.

Perfect place to stop for a sandwich. The staff (owners?) could not be nicer. Delicious sandwich and on a nice day, a very pleasant place to eat outdoors!

I often get lunch to take to work. Many daily specials and a long list of sandwiches plus salads. It may get overwhelmed somethimes in the summer, but otherwise a good solid choice

The homemade from scratch pies offered at The Mercantile are second to none and definitely worth the price. Order ahead for a wonderful family dessert after dinner.

Home baked breads and interesting sandwich combos. I love the Turkey, Havarti, with thinly sliced granny apple & mayo on the homemade oatmeal bread, mmmmmm! Eat here inside or out, or take it for the beach. Lots of other goodies too, salads, cheese, cookies and more. A little hard to find, but once you do. . .you will be back... More
