Great place for lunch when visiting Irvington area. Freshly made sandwiches and indoor or outdoor seating make this a great spot for people watching. A good option for those at staying at the Tides Inn or Hope and Glory. Plenty of options for both kids and adults.

The coffee is super, the food is good with a fine variety of sandwiches and salads. And oh my is it ever a local gathering place. The "boys" (old) gathering on Monday and Thursday never fails to tickle me when I stop by for morning coffee.
My only complaint is the grill ventilation system...it's inadequate and the "greasy" smell permeates one's clothes on days that the grill is used often. Makes the experience average rather than excellent.

They make fantastic sandwiches, even if not BEEF, and excellent coffee. Nice outside eating in good weather where you can observe the traffic---maybe 10 cars per hour. Has become a place for light, healthy eating and fellowship; value is marginal.

The Local is frequented by Locals, but also looked forward to by those who visit Irvington on a regular but also for those whose eye is caught by the infrequent visitor.
The atmosphere is great and the fare, is exactly what you might hope for in a coffee shop serving breakfast and lunch. Great touches.
Try it, you will like it. Our favorite is theThe Main Squeeze, a salad. Homemade soup every cool day!

I love this spot. The food never fails to satisfy (for both breakfast and lunch), and the staff is always nice. Seating both inside and out. Pricing is not too bad, either. Nestled in the perfect spot of Irvington, surrounded by the other local businesses, and a short drive to Kilmarnock.
