I was so impressed with taste! Their menu has a lot of options (vegetarian friendly) and the sandwich I got was SO delicious. I don't know if they make their own bread but it sure did taste like it. They also have a cute shop for making gift baskets! It looks like their catering menu was great too! Wish I... More

We had our dogs with us so we had to sit outside. The ordering line was a bit long and a bit confusing menu. The sandwiches took quite a while but they were worth waiting for. Nice to grab a beer too with lunch too.

A nice deli style restaurant. They have really good food. Most of the sandwiches are specialties, but you can order a regular sandwich too. The service was great and the staff was very friendly. Also, it contains a shop that has wine by the bottle and numerous other items.

Found this little place off the beaten path and loved it so much, we literally went back 3 times during our stay. Their sandwiches and wraps are delish!! They also have a lot of snacks, wine, and other gourmet type food and beverages in the store as well that you can buy. We ate there the first day we arrived... More

I had no idea what to expect when my brother, whom we were visiting, insisted we come to Taste for our first meal in VA Beach. We had to find parking on the street. When you walk into the store, the first impression is that it is a specialty food store with a very appealing layout and interesting one-of-a-kind food... More

Have eaten here and the Larchmont location. They are popular spots for a great deli sandwich, salads, glass of wine etc. This location has tables outside and a little farm stand. The Larchmont location is indoors but still has gelato, peanuts to buy and taste, gourmet goodies and the same great deli options. Don't get me wrong - this is... More

This is one of those gourmet store/deli/restaurant combinations and a good one. For lunch we were looking for a different sandwich and found it here. I had a beef brisket with pickled onion and pimento cheese. Very good. My wife had an excellent ham and Bree with Apple. There are also local beers on tap and a gelato station. Different... More
