“well made food for breakfast and lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

This is a nice little place where fresh and healthy food is caringly made and offered. It's set up to be like a deli, but the breakfasts here are good too. We like to get sandwiches and salads to eat out on our boat. :-)

“Tasty lunch fare”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

My husband had the reuben and I had the chicken and bacon wrap special. The service was attentive and very friendly. The food was very good. There was a very good variety to choose from. When I saw the menu, I thought the sandwiches were a tad expensive, but when I tasted it, I thought it was money well spent.

How nice to find such positive and candid feedback from a first-time customer! Thank you for noticing the variety of our menu and recognizing the value of our food and service. In this economy it is extremely challenging to keep customer prices affordable AND still serve healthful, fresh foods in consistently generous and satisfying portions. I hope you'll be back to sample other options in the future.

“Great breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Ate here with our niece for third year before taking her to Seafarer. Such nice people! Such fresh, tasty, fare! The only change we'd like to see is that they close Monday instead of Sunday so that we could enjoy the Emporium twice as we pass through town.

“Great place for a good fresh breakfast!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

This is a small friendly place with good food made to order. All fresh ingredients and nicely prepared. Eat in or carry out. Good food at a reasonable price and nice people running the place. We will certainly go there again.
