Good

I got a sandwich there. It's not as big as the one on Shore dr. but the food is just as good. I would visit again

Very interesting concept. Order, get hour drink and chips, find a table, 5 minutes later they call you and you get the rest of your food and pay. Food was OK, nothing fancy and bland. Everything had that "healthy" feel to it, but not necessarily healthy, unless a lack of salt is healthy. It is one of those new wave... More

My partner and I had stopped at one of the Taste locations a few years ago on the edge of Virginia Beach, and had gotten some really nice sandwiches. On a recent visit to town, we were happy to stumble upon a Taste location a block from our hotel. The shop mostly offers high quality take-out products like sandwiches and... More

Good sandwich shop away from the strip. Food is fresh and delicious. Pricey though. Relaxing atmosphere for eating inside. Would go again.

Fresh products. Good to eat there, good to take out. They make those great sandwiches and they sell exclusive high end products such as home made pasta sauce and a selection of delicious Virginia nuts; I have to admit that some products could seemed a bit overpriced.

Stopped for sandwich on the way to the oceanfront. Pleasantly surprised of the wide variety and how fresh all the ingredients were. Would stop in again.

With family, we were visiting Virginia Beach and had a limited amount of time for a late lunch. We were unfamiliar with the area and after driving several blocks Taste called to us. It seemed like a blend of a coffee, tea and sandwich shop. There were four in our party and we had a variety of sandwiches, soup, and... More

My husband and I eat here almost every week-we take our lunch to the park all the time. Always fresh and yummy. Simply a great place to get lunch. This includes all the locations-our favorite one would be off shore drive.

This deli offers a number of vegetarian dishes. It is two blocks from the beach (and just past a nifty set of posters/signs that review Virginia Beach's history.) There are indoor and a few outdoor tables. A very choice of beer and wine is avaiable. The sandwiches we ordered were a good size and enjobable. Staff were friendly and helpful.... More

This place had everything from gelato to wine to good sandwiches. Decently priced considering it is near the beach and I went back two days in a row for the crab salad sandwich. Delicious deli!
