The oddest method of preparing and delivering your order. 4 of us ordered, other patrons ordered same type items long after us and delivery was a combination of some of us and some of them. One of our party received a grilled cheese 20 min after we all had our ysandwiches. Others around us had food before and after us... More

This small cafe serves a great variety of delicious sandwiches and roll ups. Servings are large and prices very reasonable. We needed to get breakfast to bring on our trip early the next morning. The friendly owner helped us picked sandwiches that kept well and told his staff to wrap them very nicely in foil for our convenient. We didn't... More

The Greek woman running the place keeps things running like clockwork.The veggies were fresh and my husband said the meat was cooked very well.Portions are... More

I hate sandwiches. This place and Pleasant Street Tea are the only places where I will willingly order a sandwich. The crusty slabs of bread, selection of cheeses and meats, numerous vegetarian and vegan options, and attentive, generous preparation make for a sandwich that will change how you look at sandwiches. It did for me. My faves: ham and Brie,... More

Super fresh and delicious sandwiches & food served by owner / chefs. Yoghurt is made to order with your choice of 50 or so add-ins. Great atmosphere and place to meet friends in historic part of Gloucester. Very Special in every way.

This Mediterranean inspired Cafe has outstanding, home-made soups and an astonishing variety of incredibly delicious, fresh sandwiches. After hearing lots or good things about Cafe Bishco we finally made it there on a Saturday for lunch. We absolutely loved our entire order. My husband said his pita wrap with fresh olives, feta cheese and assorted fresh vegetables was the best... More

They have lots of "blend-ins" for yogurts. The portions were huge. We had peanut M&M and shared, but everything that was coming out looked great. We didn't have food here, but the soups and wraps looked great. Next time we are in Gloucester we will definitely eat here.

Stopped in for lunch during the middle of a Saturday town festival in Gloucester. It was packed but the management kept things moving reasonably briskly. Tasty and large sandwiches, and a wide variety. Grab a bite to go and enjoy it on the harborfront -- can make for a wonderful afternoon.
