Picked out three sandwiches and soups along with one drink, very good but a little pricey (45.00) I feel as though I could have taken the girls to a restaurant and had a full lunch meal for what I paid here. The price will not stop me from trying them again though!

I'm in love with TASTE Newport News! Been going here for over 3/4 yrs and by far they have the best sandwiches!!! I love love love their vegetarian sandwiches!!!! And my favorite soup, which I haven't seen in a long time, but would love to be on their personal mailing list so I know when it's in is the mushroom soup!!! I always buy like 4 qts and take a lil bit of heaven home with me! Now their sandwiches are on the pricer side compared to some(basic) places... But you're completely getting your money worth!! I live over 40 mins away and gladly drive here for an awesome lunch! Please don't go anywhere taste, I'm relying on you!!! :)

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

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.

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.
