Amazing Food, as always!

This place is consistently good! I recommend the hummus sandwich and clam chowder - and pretty much anything else on the menu! Service is wonderful, food always fresh. Haven't been for breakfast yet but it's on my To Do list.

Good breakfast. Good coffee and homemade bread. Have not eaten here for lunch yet, but like that they have a daily quiche, and everything appears to be homemade.

I've had lunch here on several occasions, and keep ordering their 'Soup/Sandwich' combo -- ALWAYS get the Tomato/Basil bisque and 1/2 a sandwich - usually the choice of my lunch partner - but have had Turkey/Avocado, and several other of their selections. Excellent breads - fresh, crisp lettuce, not too much mayo or dressing -- Service is bright, friendly and... More

Lunch and Breakfast are good here. Servings are more than adequate. Omelettes are excellent and made to order. Blackboard specials are posted daily. Manager invites requests to do something special for you. Pastry available. Coffee used to be better in my opinion. Several coffees are available and you can serve yourself.

We were on our way to the beach and didn't want fast food for lunch. Sea glass is right off the highway and served fresh delicious food very quickly and for a reasonable price. Will stop again!

It's been a year since my last review. They haven't disappointed me over the last year. Service is still on point. Lindsay is awesome! Brunch couldn't be any better. Chef Salad with their ginger dressing rocks my world. Thanks Sea Glass.

The food here is very tasty and fresh, the service is friendly and the prices are very reasonable. The baked goods are excellent, and most are made on site. The smells are wonderful when you walk in the door. The sandwiches and salads are generous, and on very good breads. Comfortable atmosphere, very casual and relaxed. The quiches and soups... More

Found this restaurant in the New Bern Guide and then on Trip advisor. Th he food was plentiful but I found the classic grilled cheese sandwich bland for my taste. The sandwich was very buttery on one side and just plain on the other which was a bit disconcerting. My companion had a turkey club that was satisfactory. The atmosphere... More
