The newsstand is located in a very convenient location to buy the daily local newspaper and get a cup of coffee each morning while in town.

The Dover Newsstand & Cafe is a great place for homemade food. The sandwiches are delicious, as is the atmosphere. My wife and I were here for lunch and I had the Turkey Breast and Swiss Cheese sandwich with lettuce, tomato, and pickle on Wheat bread. My wife had the Grilled Chicken sandwich. Both were made quick and perfectly right.... More

My wife had eaten here before and insisted we have lunch here during a recent visit to Dover. I have to say I was a bit skeptical! This is literally a news stand with a few tables and a lunch counter. The food and service, however, were amazing.

The coffee, breakfast treats and sandwiches are all great at this venue. The owner works hard to accommodate all patrons.

Running late doing some shopping downtown and wanted a late breakfast. Stopped in at the Dover Newsstand and had their three egg platter with toast and TURKEY BACON and coffee to go. Hit the spot. Will go back for other items and another breakfast. Eat in this time.

Sometimes great sometimes not. The coffee is good. But the inconsistent food and rude owner kinda throw me. But iis a cute place with free wifi and the soups are good.
