Price was super reasonable and the food was fantastic! This place is also like a mini grocery, so you can take plenty to go!

“Amazing sandwiches!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

Great sandwiches and it is hard to pick a favorite because every one that I've tried has been outstanding. I just wish that they stayed open later and had a location closer to where I work.

“Surprisingly Delicious Soups from a Sandwich Shop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

Stopped by Taste for lunch and enjoyed the best soup I have eaten in a very long time. The soup of the day was a Roasted Red Pepper with Smoked Gouda soup. It was very creamy and flavorful, even my hubby who HATES peppers said it was really good. The soup comes with a huge bread end, which went very well with the soup.

Hubby had a sandwich filled with meat which he liked. It was huge and he had half to take home for dinner that night.

I really liked that they did not have a soda machine, forcing me to order water (soda free for 6 months!) Instead they had a variety of bottles of all different kinds of sodas, waters, and teas, giving everyone a huge selection of drinks. Hubby had an orange cream soda that tasted just like a creamcicle. I think he will go back just for that!

Overall great lunch place that will definitely replace a certain other chain sandwich place we usually frequent.

“Best Sandwiches in City Center”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2012

I walk over and eat sandwhiches from taste frequently at lunch. tey have a great selection of sandwhiches, salads, sweets and drinks. Lots of little unique foods to try.

The prices seem a bit pricey at first blush, but they always seem to have a lunch special, which I usually try. Not a bad place to try!

“Upscale Deli, Great Sandwiches, Specialty Foods”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2012

Their turkey sandwiches are known for their special sauce but most of the sandwiches are well prepared. The dining area is clean, bright and surrounded by a great wine selection. Near military installations and Old Dominion University.
