Fast, clean, pleasant atmosphere! Such a cute lunch place for a sweet date. Reasonable prices for really fresh ingredients. Today was my first time and I'll definitely go back. ** I "created" my own sandwich which didn't come out with everything I ordered.. was missing 2 ingredients but it was delicious anyway so I won't hold it against them.

We stopped here for lunch after "Taste" came up on our eat gluten free app. What a wonderful find it was. With a dedicated gluten free prep area and multiple gluten free option for sandwiches, salads, sides, etc. I was delighted to find so many choices. The large Cobb salad was chocked full of chicken, avocado, crisp bacon, hard boiled... More

Our firm frequently orders lunch from Taste....the salads are extra delicious and always fresh. The sandwiches are wonderful and the bread is baked fresh. This is a must to visit at lunchtime.

We stopped off here after our tennis tournament. Needed some food before hitting the road. It's a sandwich shop and sells marmalades and other food items. I had a curried chicken salad lunch and my daughter a ham sandwich lunch box with a drink an large cookie. My tennis team mates ate most of her cookie and deemed it "awesome".

I need to eat quickly while that area to make it back to my traineeship time. I try to eat clean and organic and they fit that requirement. Staff is courteous and the sandwich selections are great. Wonderful soups too.

I started using TASTE to cater my company lunches, and am very impressed with their service. Being naturally nervous, they eased my anxiety after my first order by arriving on time (10 minutes early even!) and getting my order correct. They are rather expensive, but my boss really likes when I order from here so it is worth it. During... More

I had a horrible sandwich here today! It was the barbacoa special. First they gave it to me cold after having told me it was a hot sandwich. It was supposed to have red onions. There weren't any. It was tasteless and inedible. $14 for a horrible sandwich and a bag of chips. I will never come back here again.... More

Fantastic sandwiches and soups, and the Signature Apricot Iced Tea is just wonderful. Everything was clean and fresh, and the staff polite and helpful. Definitely worth a visit.
