Sea Star Cafe Gourmet Carry Out is locally owned and operated! We opened on Main Street in 2000 and moved to our new location on Maddox Blvd. in 2013. Serving gourmet sandwiches, fresh salads, vegetarian & vegan fare as well as homemade soups, sides and baked goods. All of our food is MADE FRESH to ORDER by the 2 OWNERS..... everyday all the time! Our soups, sauces, hummus, baked goods etc. are made by us right here! We intended Sea Star to be carryout but do have some outdoor seating limited to 3 picnic tables as regulated by Virginia Department of Health. Check us out!

Great Sandwhichs

Great sandwich's with the meat piled on high. Well worth the money. Window service with picnic tables overlooking a glade where wildlife can be watched while you wait.

I live on the island, but every time I meet my friend from Baltimore, she asks that I bring her a sandwich from sea star. Their ingredients are the best! All the food is prepared by the owners and the quality really shows. You might think the food is pricy at first glance, but once you see how big the... More

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
