Freshly made croissants. Great cheese. Sausage. Breakfast sandwich. Wouldn’t have expected things to be this fresh in a market store. Would come back in a second

We stopped in for lunch as we were touring the area lighthouses, and had a good meal. Their version of a BLT and a turkey sandwich was freshly prepared and flavorful. Service was good, selection great. Definitely a good spot to have a light lunch.

Good for quick breakfast, lunch or dinner. Their homemade desserts are quite good as well. Sandwiches are all excellent, and they have some groceries to buy as wel.

Stopped here several times on a Maine coastal trip. Nice selection of sandwiches, salads and soups. The haddock chowder was hearty and delicious as was a cobb salad. The bakery has a nice selection including gluten free options. Nice selection of drinks and snacks ....Good place to stop and get a days worth of food if on a trip or dine in.More

Okay this was my fault but we failed to ask what the Lobster Roll cost - $35.00 each!! Most expense lunch we ever had, and no liquor. They were good though.

After heading out to see the light houses of Cape Elizabeth, we drove past the C-salt café and decided to stop. Pretty good sandwiches and a good assortment of freshly made sweets as well. They also offer a coffee and smoothies as well as some...snack items.More

We have been to C Salt a number of times in our many visits to Cape Elizabeth. Not sure what happened this time. Food was horrendous! My husband asked for a fresh made Italian sandwich and got something that was packaged hours earlier. My avocado...toast came with two cold eggs. Yuck. I was so disappointed. Unlikely I will return.More

The smoothies and sandwiches here are wonderful. Fresh ingredients and there is plenty to choose from. My family's favorites are the Green Dream Smoothie (greens, banana, mango & apple cider) and the Surfside (strawberry, pineapple, banana, mango & OJ). For sandwiches, we often get the...Avocado Cheddar Wrap, the Turkey Terrific, or the Caprese. They are also very nice about accommodating my picky eater and making a plain sandwich without garnish. I love the atmosphere, there is a comfortable patio, partly in the shade and partly in the sun. The inside is light and welcoming with a sweet gift shop. They also hire local high schoolers and college students, which is wonderful for our community. Friendly and helpful staff, sometimes under great pressure, as it can get busy. We usually call and place our to go order in advance. Great place and we are so happy they are here!More

I stopped in for lunch with 3 kids. We ordered 2 grilled cheese sandwiches, which were good, nice hearty bread and a choice of cheese. We also ordered French fries, and chicken strip. Iordered a chicken ceasar wrap. The chicken strips were overcooked. The French...fries came in a huge serving, definitely one order is plenty for 2 people. They would have been excellent, but they were tremendously oversalted. The market is charming, and the pastry selection and coffee looked good.More

A particularly favorite place for muffins, scones... great soups and sandwiches, fun pastries to splurge on or procure for a friend or party! Love, love their blueberry muffins, and the hot chocolate is very intense tasty chocolate. We brought back a handful of different decorated...cookies for the grandchildren and a half dozen muffins.

I was excited (& hungry) after a morning on the beach, to get a breakfast sandwich & coffee. The thick English muffins looked great, but sadly this bacon, egg, cheese sandwich lacked in originality & taste. There was literally nothing special about it to command...its $6.99 price tag. When I sipped my latte, it was also bland. Hmm...I started to wonder if it was me. Have I lost my sense of taste? Do I have covid? I drove to a neighborhood coffeeshop near my work, where I knew what to expect & ordered a latte. Strong, flavorful, no problem. So relieved! (I might also add that the service was far and away more friendly.) Unfortunately C Salt isn't worth its salt. They do have a cute gift shop, though.More
