I wrote an earlier review of Circe that lauded its wonderful sandwiches and friendly service. There is one thing I did not mention. Circe does not allow its customers to use its restroom. I was surprised by this -- always figured if you had some seating it was pretty much required but apparently not. So if this is an issue... More

I didn't realize when we went to Florida this past winter how much I'd miss the salads and sandwiches at Circe's. To say nothing of the alway friendly staff. The avocado BLT is worth a special trip as is the roast beef that is always done right. I eat there whenever I can but try to get in before 12:15... More

The food here is imaginative, well prepared, fresh and top shelf. Great for take-out to the beach. But there are consistently (over years & recently) more downsides than positives: tends to be expensive, does not take credit cards & does not openly note that, does not answer the phone, a killer - VERY slow service and/or long lines at busier...

Circe's makes the best sandwiches in the area. They are made with quality ingredients and the selection is diverse. They also have fantastic deserts. The chocolate chip cookies are a must try!

This place is a unique sandwich place that has a nice variety of fresh and tasty sandwiches made to order. They do a nice selection of paninis, and have a nice soup of the day usually. they also do salads. The sandwich board changes occasionally. This is a good spot for a nice lunch, I highly recommend it, rustic, and... More

I always have to stop by when I'm in the area! Sandwiches are always made with the freshest ingredients! Staff is great! Try the baked goods, if you get there at the right time you may score a warm chicken pot pie and cooked to perfection chocolate chip cookies!

Circe's Grotto - a cozy place to enjoy some of the best salads, sandwiches, soups or cup o' something with a homemade muffin, cookie or to die for brownies (and blondies) Just try to eat one coconut cupcake. That is, if you're lucky enough to get there before everyone else does.....

Every sandwich we have tried has been very good. We love the Portabello Mushroom sandwich. It is always busy, a testamonial to its local popularity.

From the awesome bread to all the fresh produce they use to the baked goods for dessert, Circe's is a must try for lunch. My favorite sandwich is the BLT. Sandwich's are done Panini style. Yum
