Loved the food and menu. Farm to table ingredients. They have some both outdoor and indoor seating. I sat out front and enjoyed people watching and the warm sun on a July afternoon.

We stopped here to get sandwiches to go before heading on the Transit shuttle out to Lime Kiln State Park. The workers were very friendly and accomodating and the sandwiches were delicious!

The Market Chef was a fun place to try. My husband had a grilled cheese sandwich and a crab cake. He really liked the sandwich but said the crab cake was just okay. I had "My Sister's Favorite Sandwich" which was interesting. It tasted good...More
