My family recently moved to Sandwich, MA and all they ever talked about was Café Chew! Finally I went to Sandwich for a wedding and Café Chew was on my list! We had an awesome breakfast! Plenty of choices here, something for everyone! I loved this restaurant! I will definitely return. Everything was cooked to perfection and very delicious!

Hectic, crowded, and noisy as its popularity often exceeds its indoor seating capacity, but the food is worth it. On our last visit we noticed that the staff who delivered food to tables, or cleared trays of dishes also did a great job directing the flow of traffic coming through the door. If someone seemed unsure what to do first,... More

We had two coffees there and a breakfast and the cafe was always full with good reason. The food was cooked freshly and was of high quality as was the coffee. By the third visit the waitress at the till remembered my name and how I liked my coffee. The buttermilk pancakes were crispy around the edges as was the... More

Visited Cafe Chew on a Sunday afternoon, it was busy! They have an odd system where you claim a table before ordering. All tables were full so we just ordered and ate outside (was fairly warm thankfully!) My husband had an amazing sandwich and mine was decent, little on the dry side. Would come again but probably order something else.

I have eaten here many many times and all but once had a good experience. This time I had chicken salad on GF bread and it was good as usual. Typically we dine in, and every sandwich or salad we have gotten has been of very good quality. Every time. I don't like how hectic it is when you get... More

Diverse menu of salads and sandwiches with two daily soup offerings and many specials on the blackboard. Service is friendly and efficient with dining inside and out on the two patios, food delivered promptly and always to a high standard. It can be busy but getting a table was not an issue for us. Finishing off the meal with one... More

You'll love the coffee, assortment of pastries and delicious options for breakfast and lunch including quiche, sandwiches and more. Great atmosphere. Indoor or outdoor seating. Friendly staff!

We were a party of 7 at a late lunch. The employees were less than helpful and basically rude. Table & chair issues, asked a simple allergy question and couldn't get an answer. We were pressed for time and had lunch but won't be returning.

Enjoyed very good barbecue brisket. Friendly service. Very clean. Reasonable prices. A gem. Very popular, even during the off-season.

My favorites in this place are the salads. Huge, fresh and consistently good. Be sure to grab a table first then place your order at the counter. A server will bring it out to your table once it is ready. Can be crowded on weekends especially in the summer months so give yourself plenty of time. There is outdoor seating... More
