We have been to taste on a few occasions and it has been good enough to come back. Well I this last trip I ordered the special catfish sandwich and it was absolutely terrible. The fish was cooked beyond recognition along with being burnt. I should have returned it after the first bite but I decided to give it a... More

My visiting the area each summer, I pass by a Taste location and tell myself I need to eat there. This year I finally did. He food is very good, though slightly pricy. It serves locally harvested and mostly organic foods, prepared well. Lunch crowd was big - get there early. And if you get the meal (aka box -... More

I was so excited to see that Taste opened in Chesapeake. This is by far the best deli's in the country. The service was great, fast and friendly. The cost of this isn't something for everyday but perfect for rewarding yourself, meeting friends or just because. I am just excited to not have to drive to Norfolk to get their... More

This used to be called Taste Unlimited back in the day, known for specialty sandwiches and salads. I tried their Freemason sandwich which is chicken salad with lettuce tomato and Bacon on your choice of bread. You can get a half or whole sandwich. I got the half, it was very good and filling! They have salads, gelato, desserts, coffee... More

I've been coming to Taste for over 15 years and have been getting the same but the last 3 times it hadn't been the same. I usually get the Hilltop sandwich which is supposed to be on French baguette. I first time I noticed the bread change I had thought it was just a mishap and the second time, I... More

Candice, Thank you so much for being such a loyal guest. We truly appreciate you, your business and feedback. In fact, we have rolled out a new French bread. It is baked locally and hand-crafted by artisan bakers. This new French bread is now vegan and made with unbleached and unbromated flour. As with any new development, we are still... More

If I lived in this area, I could see this becoming one of my go-to places. I'm not a sandwich person, but this place would convert me. Not your run of the mill food stuff either. Fresh, inventive and their unsweetened tea is so tasty it doesn't need sugar. The basil aioli~heaven!

We eat here about once a month. It is our favorite sandwich shop. We always get a box lunch. She gets the roast beef, and I get the turkey. The special sauce makes the sandwich. They always feature Virginia made products, such as wines and Route 11 Chips. It is pricey, was very nice!

The sandwiches and salads are really fresh, good quality ingredients, and generous servings. Breads are freshly made, and the homemade French herb cheese spread was fabulous. Their signature iced tea has a special touch of apricot flavor that makes it refreshing and unique. The servers were friendly and helpful. You can order takeout, or dine inside with a glass of...
