I had no idea what to expect when my brother, whom we were visiting, insisted we come to Taste for our first meal in VA Beach. We had to find parking on the street. When you walk into the store, the first impression is that it is a specialty food store with a very appealing layout and interesting one-of-a-kind food... More

Have eaten here and the Larchmont location. They are popular spots for a great deli sandwich, salads, glass of wine etc. This location has tables outside and a little farm stand. The Larchmont location is indoors but still has gelato, peanuts to buy and taste, gourmet goodies and the same great deli options. Don't get me wrong - this is... More

This is one of those gourmet store/deli/restaurant combinations and a good one. For lunch we were looking for a different sandwich and found it here. I had a beef brisket with pickled onion and pimento cheese. Very good. My wife had an excellent ham and Bree with Apple. There are also local beers on tap and a gelato station. Different... More

We love stopping in for lunch. The prices of sandwiches are a little steep so we usually end up splitting a sandwich and having some soup which is very reasonable, and very delicious. The food is always very fresh, and freshly prepared.

We always return there whenever we stay in VB. Good place for lunch or for take out. Vast variety of sandwiches and salad is available. Could seem to be a bit pricy but it’s totally worth it.

Great Sandwiches in a clean atmosphere. Service was quick and the food very fresh. Nice little market where you can buy artisan cheeses, flavored peanuts drinks to go and my favorite - smartmouth IPA mustard.
