Great lunch!
I had a cup of cream of crab soup and a shrimp salad sandwich on a croissant with kettle chips. The food was delicious and the service was good.

Cute place for breakfast. My wife is absolutely obsessed with their crepe-like pancakes called flannel-cakes. They are delicious. This is a great place for breakfast on the weekend. Lunch & Dinner is fairly good as well, just not usually what we visit the Lemon Leaf for.

We had just arrived in town after a 2.5 hour drive and were looking for a nice place to stop and found it here. The food (soup and salad) was excellent.

DELICOUS food!
Downtown Chestertown - while quaintly small - has few limited dining options. However - you truly do not need more than what the Lemon Leaf Café can provide - as they have it ALL!

I ate crabcakes for 4 days in a row on the Eastern Shore. The ones at Lemon Leaf stood out. The other entrees were good, too, albeit a bit pricey. The bar next door has the same menu and is open later.
