Great coffee and friendly, clean, warm atmosphere. My kids loved the bagels and the ice cream. Perfect location, on a pedestrian only street

Good value for money and prompt service. Large portion sizes, so one sandwich (served with a bag of potato crisps) will be sufficient for two if you are just looking for a snack. A good selection of sandwiches, muffins and cookies.

This was the only place to eat early morning without a line out the door, not sure why. It was good food at great prices with quality service.

I received vouchers for the Red Line Cafe from the Stepping Stone Inn, since their dining room is closed this year. Tried breakfast & lunch at the Red Line; both were excellent. I appreciated the really moist gluten-free bread! They were generous with the eggs...and bacon. Loved the pesto chicken salad! Very clean. Menu items were reasonably priced.More

We needed a quick breakfast before an early tour and this place fit the bill. We were able to walk right up to the counter to order and grab a table. The menu had several options. Between us we had a breakfast sandwich, crepes, a...croissant and a smoothie. The food was pretty good. The hot chocolate and coffee was yummy. Location is convenient.More

Breakfast food was okay. The coffee is hit or miss. The hot chai was good, but the ice chai was terrible. It tasted like it was all milk with a hint of chai.

My daughter and I had breakfast here every morning we stayed in Salem. They have a great drink selection, hot and cold coffees as well as smoothies. Breakfast sandwiches are delicious as are their pastries. Service is wonderful, too!

My daughter and I stopped in after arriving into Salem in the morning. We wanted sandwiches from the lunch menu which they allowed. You can get breakfast and lunch all day. They have a nice sized menu, and lots of coffee drinks and even ice...cream! The turkey club sandwich was delicious and I was pleasantly surprised that it was served hot. It was so good. The service was quick and the employees friendly. The inside had a decent amount of comfortable seating, and there are also tables outside.More

This place is in downtown Salem and has good ice coffee. It also has good sandwiches, I especially liked the buffalo chicken wrap. Before pandemic, I sometimes got breakfast here, place has some good breakfast food, and some plenty of room to sit. Prices not...too expensive, people working there were friendly.More
