Taste is an awesome place, regarless of the location or time of day. They are always prompt, friendly, and the food is great, but the Bayville Farms location is my favorite. The seating outside is nice, dogs are allowed to join you at your table, and there are always kids playing cornhole. Walk, run, or bike, this place is wonderful.... More

Taste is a VAB institution. You can't go to VA Beach without a stop at TASTE! They deliver to the beach in the summer too! Why leave your beach chair? Great Sandwiches and flair..gifts etc.

Fresh, good, decently priced food. We tried 3 different sandwiches and a salad on separate occasions and all of them were fantastic. Their coffee was great too. Easy meal to eat in or take out. Really liked this place, as it's difficult to find a non chain sandwich joint.

We ate here for lunch on our last visit. The sandwiches are made to order and were delicious! I wish I would have room to try the desserts because the baked goods and gelato looked so good! It's a little pricey but the yumminess won out!

Very interesting concept. Order, get hour drink and chips, find a table, 5 minutes later they call you and you get the rest of your food and pay. Food was OK, nothing fancy and bland. Everything had that "healthy" feel to it, but not necessarily healthy, unless a lack of salt is healthy. It is one of those new wave... More

I got a sandwich there. It's not as big as the one on Shore dr. but the food is just as good. I would visit again

My partner and I had stopped at one of the Taste locations a few years ago on the edge of Virginia Beach, and had gotten some really nice sandwiches. On a recent visit to town, we were happy to stumble upon a Taste location a block from our hotel. The shop mostly offers high quality take-out products like sandwiches and... More

Good sandwich shop away from the strip. Food is fresh and delicious. Pricey though. Relaxing atmosphere for eating inside. Would go again.

Fresh products. Good to eat there, good to take out. They make those great sandwiches and they sell exclusive high end products such as home made pasta sauce and a selection of delicious Virginia nuts; I have to admit that some products could seemed a bit overpriced.

Stopped for sandwich on the way to the oceanfront. Pleasantly surprised of the wide variety and how fresh all the ingredients were. Would stop in again.
