Totally organic food purchased as close to the Hampton Roads area as possible. Delicious sandwiches...so worth your time and effort to visit when they are open!

When we lived in the area before this was an exceptional place to eat, not glamorous but exceptional value and food. Still is 6 years later. Mango, avocado,salmon salad was outstanding as was the pimento chicken panini. Lots of options to tease great!

Staying in Chesapeake, VA, for business. Couldn't face a chain restaurant for dinner. Found this place on Trip Advisor. Very happy. Loved the avocado club. Sesame peanut salad dressing was so good too on the side salad. Great find!

Simple cafe interior with incredible food! There's a blackboard with regular menu behind counter and sandwich board with daily specials available. Place your order at the counter, your given a number and pick a table. Food was prepared promptly, delivered to table and was oh SO delicious! I had grilled cheese with jam pannini and sweet potato fries and husband... More

Love this place for lunch. Not a huge menu, but you leave satisfied that you've eaten well - good food that's good for you. The salmon salad is the best

This is a small eatery that has a lot of flair. They have fresh baked bread and a nice variety of sandwiches and salads, I am vegan, so it's hard to find a selection of foods to eat, but I always come here when I'm in Chesapeake. I recommend the Cutting Edge to everyone
