This makes me sad to report how terrible the food is becoming. The coleslaw is brown and there is too much horseradish/may....dripping wet. Having brown cabbage is gross. The chicken salad is dried and has brown spots. YUCK. The soup was nice. To the point where I wont go anymore. The new owners are NOT doing a good job

Their hot sandwiches and salads are fantastic. Clean. Nice people. Coffee is excellent also. I sit on a bench in the Green across the street and eat my lunch. Pleasant.

Food is good. Good place to grab a Grinder or salad to go. Downside of ordering many meals. Myself and coworkers have made phone orders numerous times. On more then a few occasions, they forgot sandwiches or meals. Being a large order, I didn't check before I left.... My bad.

A few colleagues and I ordered from Taste buds a few weeks ago. The food was delivered on time and it was very good. They accommodated our requests as well.

Tastebuds is a great local deli located in the North Haven center. Great sandwiches, salads and soups. Mostly to-go. Very little seating to eat in. They deliver to local businesses and has a busy lunch crowd

New owners took over in August of 2015. Two families with a load of Italian cooking experience. If you liked this place before, you're going to LOVE it now! The subs, the salads, the prepared foods - everything is top notch. Prices are very reasonable, especially given the portions served. I highly recommend stopping in and giving it a try!

Tastebuds is a place I go to often for a quick lunch. Today the coleslaw is DRENCHED in mayo very different then in the past. The potato/egg salad is awful, it is like mashed potato loaded with small chopped carrots. No flavor and no taste. Too bad too because if the quality of food continues to go down Tastebuds will...

Cozy, cute and clean. Many choices of sandwich combinations and breads. The seeded Italian bread is THE BOMB. The homemade soups are excellent and you can take it home by the quart. Very little seating and always crowded for take out but stay and eat and people watch. A very cozy THROWBACK neighborhood Mom and Pop operation. Parking across the... More

sometimes the salads have brown lettuce, then I don't go in for awhile. The chicken salad is good. I like it on the salad. I wish they monitored the salad more I hate losing money when I wont eat brown lettuce.

The Wednesday turkey with cranberries and nuts is delicious. If you like a crunch when you eat this is it!!! I have had this a few times and it is always good. Kind of addicting. On Friday they have an out of this world London Broil Panini.
