So disappointed as this was the breakfast and lunch place year round for locals. Although the service is slow the food is always good. Not today...it looks like the Mercantile has become yet another seasonal business catering to the vacation crowd!

good food but it takes way too long to get anything in the place. When no line, a sandwich will take you 15 minutes to have made.

A quiet oasis in winter for locals with excellent coffee and breakfast offerings. Upstairs is a good place for small business meetings.

This will not be a well-rounded review, because I'm a creature of habit and only buy the same few things each time I visit, but I LOVE those things! Namely, a chicken salad sandwich on homemade marble bread with lettuce, tomato, and sprouts, along with...More

Not many seats; very good lunch; always stop in for a bit when I am in that neighborhood. Take out available for the beach crowd, and catering for that special party.
