My husband and I had lunch there today and it was delicious! Their sandwiches are very fresh and have a nice combination of favors. Their prices are a little steeper considering it was lunch, but it was definitely worth the extra to have good, fresh food. We will definitely go there again!

This is a great little café a block away from the boardwalk. We ordered the Lynnhaven sandwich (chicken breast, pimento cheese, bacon, spinach, and basil mayo) tomato pie, Thai shrimp salad, and make your own sandwich (bacon, Swiss cheese, on French bread). We got apricot tea and peach tea as our drink. It was a delicious meal. I recommend this... More

Great Sandwich shop close to the beach. Good size sandwiches on fresh bread. There is availability to eat in or take out. They also offer salads, pasta salads, soups, chips. Service was quick and efficient. They also have sauces and spices available for purchase.

I visited on my way to a business conference for lunch. I had a turkey sandwich boxed lunch. I did not realize when I upgraded that this would cost me $15 for a sandwich, chips, cookie and a drink. The cookie was huge. And the bread was freshly made. But I felt this was a high price point for what... More

Grew up on the turkey with provolone on soft white French bread and house dressing and all the other goodies sold at this locals favorite. Great wine and cheese selection and the ice cream looked fantastic.

Don't know why this is a 4-star for some. I had the catfish sandwich and it was Terrible, good sangria (although small for $7) and nice layout! Never had hard brioche! Very disappointed.

Great food, wine, beers, staff, service etc. A little pricey, but worth the stop. Homemade gelato, sandwhiches, salads, and local delicasies, with a local fruit & vegetable stand.

I absolutely love taste! They are my favorite local restaurant to eat at and each store has unique flair of it's own. I eat the Inlet every single time I visit, which is usually about once every week or so. Their knick-knacks and snacks inside are unique and delicious and they offer a variety of foods!

Great find for us in this trip and just a block from the beach. First time my daughter and I had roast beef sandwiches and the roast beef was particularly delicious. We went back the next day and I had the Ghent -- fantastic! My wife had the Inlet again it was so good the first time. Great sandwiches and... More
