Description: Clara's Tidbits is a Lunch and Catering Restaurant. We've been in business since 1985, at the same location and with the same owners, Greg and Clara LeBLanc. We really focus on fresh foods, great service and fair prices. People come because they can count on the quality and freshness of the food. Our staff is so amazing, we take pride on our great customer service creating a better experience than what you'd expect in a lunch spot. We serve fresh salads, homemade soups and great sandwiches made with care and love. It's simple, but we're going to make sure the ingredients are the freshest we can find. Our concept has always been the same, but we're always evolving and updating. Consistency is really important to us so the majority of our Menu has been the same for most of our 30 plus years. Greg is Cajon, Clara is French and they both come from Restaurant families and both have chef/management experience prior to opening Tidbits. All the recipes have been created from Greg and Clara and Family recipes, like Mama's Peach Bread Pudding and Chicken and Sausage Gumbo.

Love the food. Especially the salad bar. Service is great. Food is great. They are very, very quick in serving you and getting your food out to you. EVeryone is always smiling. Great place to eat in or take out.

“Delicious lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

Buffet was worth every penny, and was appetizing to the eye. Items were promptly refilled, and I would go back again and again to this place.

“Only place in town for Chicken Salad!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

Always consistent over all these years. I live at the beach, and if I'm ever in the direction of downtown around the lunch hour, I almost always stop in Tidbits for chicken salad sandwiches with sides of potato salad.

Pretty good salad bar too! Get there early otherwise you'll be waiting or a table. Sandwiches are as good as any deli you might visit

“Had such a great lunch, went back the next day!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

Excellent little place downtown- had to attend a couple workshops on back to back weekdays-tried Tidbits on recommendation from a friend and a quick check on Tripadvisor. Enjoyed a veggie avocado pita with a side of potato salad, delicious! Fresh veggies- squash, zucchini, tomato, peppers, onions, bean sprouts and avocado. Potato salad was as good as everyone says! Loved it so much, I had to go back the next day. Second lunch had a chicken salad sandwich, again delightful. Huge chunks of white meat chicken! Made the mistake of getting pasta salad on the side-shoulda,coulda,woulda I guess- ok but nowhere near the potato salad.
Can't wait to try something new again!
