This was a stop for a quick bite while traveling through the area. So glad I chose this place! The food was excellent and fresh. It is an open, airy place with plenty of tables and a little market to buy specialties.

Very similar to the other Tastes in Hampton Roads. (And now the Westhampton area of Richmond too!) I am partial to the Northender sandwich. Smoked turkey, hardwood smoked bacon, havarti, avocado and basil mayo on French bread. Drink machine has pellet ice.
