This little market and restaurant are tucked away on a side road right near the Old Bortondale place where we locals all used to go years ago to get out driver's test. It is just up the road a 1/4 mile. It has been several months, but I can't remember exactly what sandwich I had, but I remember liking it... More

I'm from the local Media area and have visited Wayside Market many times. It's a local favorite! The staff is always friendly and they create a warm and inviting family atmosphere. Wayside has lots to offer in terms of food and groceries, including unique house specialties and groceries. Try it today!

Very pleasant, low key dining experience. Great cheese steaks and pizza. I was traveling in the I-476 Philly area and was craving a good cheese steak. There were about a dozen options in Media and the reviews for Wayside looked most appealing. It is the kind of understated neighborhood restaurant/deli that one used to be able to find, where you...

This is a local deli type place, family run, very polite staff. There seems to be a lot of locals in and out. prices are fair, however the consistency of the food is hit or miss. The same sandwiches may have more or less meat than others on the same day. Check your food for content before leaving, The cook... More

We ordered delivery at 2 o'clock on a Thursday. We were quoted half an hour and it was more like an hour and 20 minutes. I have no problem with a little lateness, but this was almost an hour late. The food was decent at best. We ordered 4 items and it was 40 dollars. A little pricy for just... More

Stumbled on this place with friends. We just had two cheese pizzas. Small. Eight slices. Would come again.

Where to start, menu says one thing and you are charged something else with no explanation but "uh". Called order in by phone, was told 15 minutes would be ready, arrived 30 minutes later and order was not even started and I was only person in store. Stood at the register for almost 15 minutes before I even see a... More

For starters, Wayside Market is located in a place you would not think a Market/Cafe would be. It is in a quiet street among the row of homes. This is frequented by the locals and residents of the area. I like that they address each other by names. The Cafe is clean, fully stocked with necessities for someone wanting a... More
