Sea Star Café is a great place to get home made vegan food & soup, that is totally satisfying. To me it is gourmet & healthy. I have dietary restrictions (except for the Creamery) & the waitress was very helpful in making sure of ingredients & helping me w/my needs. All the staff members that I've talked w/are helpful &...

This is a very trendy sandwich shop that has the freshest of everything on the menu. They have tables overlooking the bay for enjoying their very generous portions. I suggest grabbing a menu to read while your waiting in line, they don't take phone orders. It's well worth the wait!

Twice during our recent visit to Chincoteague, we stopped at the Sea Star Cafe for lunch. They offer a terrific assortment of gourmet take-out sandwiches, and none of us was disappointed on either visit. It was bitter cold, so we didn't take advantage of their outside tables by a duck-filled pond, but that would be a nice amenity in warmer... More

Wow - I'm so glad we found this place - it is sort of tucked out of the way, but the food is amazing - delicious sandwiches and deserts and what a lovely place to sit outside and have lunch!

The sandwiches were so good that we stopped for some soup and hummus on the way back from the beach. I enjoyed the Diplomat and was wowed by the veggie sandwich my girl friend ordered. The mushroom and brie soup was very rich. Do not let the long line deter you!

This is my most favorite place to eat on the whole Eastern Shore. They have excellent food that is always fresh. I drive many miles and plan my entire day around their hours. They are located in a serene spot on the water. There is rarely enough seating, the lines are long in the summer, and they do not have... More

We stopped here for lunch and were delighted to find a place with fresh ingredients on the island (very hard to come by). So many choices from wraps, to sandwiches, to soup and more. I had the baja wrap. It was great. Only downside is there is no indoor seating and there are only 3 tables outside.

We went here on as busy day for Chincoteague...it was like stopping the hustle for a little peace. The sandwiches are amazing the homemade tea refreshing. What I like was sitting near the water eating the tasty sandwich feeling like I got to retreat away from the hurry up mode a lot of tourist places seem to have. As a... More
