Chelsea's on Cardinal is the perfect place to grab coffee, breakfast or lunch on the go. They are a block from the ocean and the perfect location to pick up picnic supplies for a lovely day at the beach. Attention to quality is evident in all of their dishes. The sandwiches and salads are delicious and made to order. They... More

From the moment of walking in the door, one word does come to mind "WELCOME" the staff makes one feel as though their guests are part of the family. Best Italian Sub and the Salad bar is well, just divine! There is never a disappointment and if you look in the fridge there are some specialty beverages that hit the... More

Under new management this year, Chelsea's has experienced some growing pains as the new, youngish ownership struggles to get its footing. Expect some of the same old favorites, along with some new items. The food is good but expect to pay "island" prices.....ouch. I've found myself wondering if these kids are college grads. I had to send a sandwich back... More

Haven't been in a while because it is too pricey for my budget but I always enjoy it when I do. It is the perfect place to pick up sandwiches or dinner for a night when you want something tasty but don't have time to cook.

Great breakfast and excellent service. They had a wonderful selection of goods, wine and takeaway meals. Definitely going to try their catering. Very pricey compared to the other local gourmet market.

I have eaten here for years, from back when the original owners had it and the food has almost always been exceptional. (The prices are very high for some of the items, but this is a specialty beach deli). Over the years the different owners have changed it and hopefully the new owners can get it back like it was...

We purchased sandwiches and salads. Everything was very tasty and portions were decent. I especially like their broccoli salad and went home and recreated it for very little cost and effort vs the exorbitant amount of money they charge for it. Sandwiches are filled well, but everything seems to be more expensive than it should be regardless of who can... More
