In an island full of overwrought, heavy-in-your-stomach, dishes, Sea Star sandwiches is an elegant, delicious alternative. It's sandwiches are all thoughtfully conceived and a perfect balance of flavor. I highly recommend the fresh shrimp salad croissant - the dash of lemon rind & dill to the shrimp adds a spark of refreshment that makes the sandwich pure joy. Beware of... More

Everything was fresh and delicious. The cold cuts were excellent quality and they had interesting sandwich choices - which made feeding 6 different people an easy task. The only thing that might make it even better would be a slightly better bread selection. Mine was supposed to be sourdough, but tasted like regular white bread. The filling was so good,... More

They have great sandwiches and salads. Their shrimp salad is the best on the island. And soups are real tasty too.

In case you wanted something that was not fried and you felt like you ate a good meal, this is the place. Sandwiches are delicious.

Takeout as good as any city sandwich shop in a town with few deli type options. Good place to get picnic lunch for the beach, or eat outside in their fenced patio. We also enjoyed their fresh fruit salad and desserts.

After a bus tour of the refuge, we stopped at this cafe for a quick bite since we were starving! Well , the sandwiches and wraps were fresh and tasty; however the long wait was kind of annoying. It took us an hour from the time we arrived till we received our order. Being a vegetarian, I do appreciate that... More

Limited menu and nearly no seating, but tasty, healthy sandwiches. Expect a bit of a wait. Excellent for takeout.

A great place to have a satisfying sandwich. I had the Diplomat. I'm a turkey fan and I was excited by the addition of the Brie cheese which I don't typically see being served on sandwiches. It was very good and Brie is my new favorite sandwich cheese - it adds a creaminess. My boyfriend and I also shared some... More

Many varied options-- for vegetarians, gluten free diets and others the flavors are old but good and the service is very pleasant. Great place to gather food for a picnic at the beach..
