This used to be my favorite place for a chicken Sandwich. Well seems to be new management and seems he needs to make an extra buck by cutting portions. I used to like there chicken sandwiches there they were a little pricey but worth it. I went there the other day and was shocked at what I had for my... More

My boyfriend ordered take out and got me a BLT. He wanted to get one too but they told him that they only had enough bacon for one sandwich. It's not hard to mess up a BLT yet surprisingly they managed! Two strips of bacon (if that), thinly sliced tomato, some lettuce and NO MAYONNAISE! Apparently they were busy, and... More

Hot cider poured straight from the cider gallon jug and served in toasty big ceramic mugs "for here". Lovely to wrap one's hands around a warm mug during a snowstorm. My companion and I appreciated the chance to get warm and dry during a surprisingly snowy day.

Since its opening, this has always been a place to get a cup of coffee in downtown Dover and to people-watch through the large picture windows facing Central Avenue and Third Street, a busy corner. Many people meet here so it's a social hub in downtown. The café has two couches, an armchair, plus both high and conventional tables with... More

Don't go there in a big group (10-12 people), they weren't ready and it took a long time to get served. The food and beverages where very good, but don't be in a hurry!

While I've never had a bad experience here, the service does tend to be very slow. If you're not in a rush, and you'd like a decent cup of coffee with a friend, definitely stop in. If you have somewhere else to be, go somewhere else. It took about ten minutes for me to get a latte with only one... More

Cafe on the Corner is a standard-fare coffee shop with a nurtured alternative atmosphere. The cafe does not have wifi, the food is bought from the local Market basket (I've known employees, they go there to pickup day old pastry. Luckily, even day-old Market Basket goods are quite good.), and the food is overpriced. All of these elements go with... More
