Great sandwiches, staff and sweets. I had famous chix salad on white. Really good. All white meat, grapes and blue cheese built in. Fantastic bread. Hubby had a fantastic crab meat roll up. Added pluses was a cute little candy shop which kids of all ages will dig. Saw a nice wine selection too but didn't peruse sufficiently to give... More

A reliable sandwich shop with interesting menu and fresh ingredients. Order at a counter and then sit down - the food comes out quickly and the prices are reasonable. It is always a good sign when the parking lot is busy with local people - people don't go back if the food is not good - especially when there are... More

The seating is strange but who cares..you can always take your delicious food outside to picnic tables (in nice weather that is!). A little pricey but substantial, not chintzy. Kids menu could be expanded a bit but at least there insane. Great bakery stuff as well.

Our place of choice for topnotch sandwiches and soup. The pumpkin soup is to die for and what more can be said for their famous chicken salad sandwich. Great staff, great food, and always busy!

professional, healthy, clean, quick, many choices, and great parking. No brainer! I recommend avoiding the after school hour, it's right next to a school and students often head there for the quick snack before practice or on there way home.

This is the place I call in a sandwich order to pick up on my way to visit a friend who lives nearby. Great sandwiches, and I always pick up a yummy baked treat for dessert.

Food is consistently excellent and interesting. No atmosphere, not a place for a date. Service can be agonizingly slow causing a long line to order.

A Yarmouth institution, Clayton's is a wonderful place to have lunch. They have 4 to 5 soups made fresh each day that change and are really awesome. Vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, and meat offerings are all available here. There sandwiches are epic and fresh and they also have dinners to go which are home-made for when you can't do it... More
