I'm irritated at myself for never coming here before. I've worked in RTP for the past 6 years and I never gave this place a chance. Don't be like me. Super friendly staff and excellent breakfast food and deli sandwiches.

Love this place!! I just love brunch and the wraps/burritos they do here are great. I go to Coffee and Cars in Durham every month and they never disappoint there either!

I've worked in this building district for years and I know I can always turn to Chelsea's for a great meal. Amazing little hole in the wall breakfast/lunch place! And ridiculously better than all the fast food in the surrounding area.

Great food for an affordable price. The staff was very friendly! It is a bit difficult to find, so drive around the building and you'll see it.

This place is a hidden gem. Food is homestyle cooking and delicious. The kitchen was quick and a ton of variety as well. Perfect spot for breakfast or lunch in the area!

Nice people there. I prefer places like Chelsea Cafe with the low-key setting. Enjoyed the variety of food from the cafe. A nice gem.

Walk here from your local office and get lunch from a local company. Use the Toast app on your phone to order ahead of time and you won’t have to wait.

I first had Chelsea Cafe when my building had a catering event for breakfast and it was soooo good I had to go back for more. My favorite is the breakfast wrap. They’re a good portion but won’t stuff you up too much. I make the drive to whenever I really want some good breakfast wraps. Highly recommend :)

We came here for a quick bite to eat. The place is very clean. The servers were very nice and friendly. The food was excellent. They gave us a piece of a waffle with butter and syrup for dessert. We will definitely be back. Keep up the good work Chelsea Cafe. ☺

Greg and John are awesome. The food is always quick and delicious. Online ordering makes it easy to order ahead for a low contact experience. They're happy to help you customize your food and give you healthy options.

No matter what you get this place always impresses me. It doesn't look like anything fancy but the food is always delicious and the price is right!

Lovely clean environment, friendly, prompt service, fresh and well prepared food. This gem is hidden away in a business park and should be on your list for a good breakfast or lunch.

Nice, clean and cozy cafe! They still went ahead and made me a delicious omelette even though I went in after the breakfast cut-off time. Keep up the great job!

Perfect little place if you work near Emperor Blvd. Very pleasant staff and a low key atmosphere. Eat inside or out.

It's a hidden treasure. Soups salad sandwiches. All good and fast. Could be a nice spot if eating out solo.

Food is usually pretty good. Nothing spectacular but good reliable deli/sandwich shop food.

Stopped in while traveling, glad we did! It was a cute little cafe with pretty good food. Was a little confused trying to find it since its in a business center, but not too difficult. I got an omelet and biscuit. My friend got the breakfast plate. Everything was tasty and did not take long at all.

The breakfast food straight forward and basic morning fare. Could add a little seasoning to bring out a bit more flavor. I will say everyone working there was extremely friendly and helpful. Which made getting some breakfast in my husband who just got off a red flight a great place to stop.

Love the Chelsea Cafe. It's got good food and coffee. It's in a great location just off of I-40, surrounded by office buildings. Just remember it's on the backside, you can't see it from the road. Great place to meet with folks for coffee or lunch.

First time visiting. Cashier and cook was very nice. Located in an office building. I ordered the turkey sausage and egg biscuit. It was delicious. Only complaint that the biscuit was undercooked and still fought as if was made from a can and not scratch. I’ll give it another try for other things on the menu.

The place in inside s office building but very easy to get too and has plenty of parking. The place is quite big inside and has some seating outside as well. I ended up getting a latte bagel and a breakfast burrito. All of which were well above my expectations. I got a caramel latte and I loved that the coffee could still be tasted over the milk and caramel. The bagel was one of the best I have ever had. They are bagels that are shipped in but they taste like they were freshly made that morning. The breakfast burrito was a great mix and had a lot of meat while still being under 5 bucks. Also the guy that greeted me was super welcoming willing to get me something to bring while I was looking over the menu. Overall a great experience here.

Greg and Theresa are the best! The Chelsea Cafe satisfies all breakfast and lunch cravings. Conveniently located, excellent service, and great food. What more could you ask for?

I can't believe I've been working in RTP for years without giving this place a shot. Their sandwiches are fantastic and reasonably priced for the quality you get. The fact that it's nestled in an easy-to-reach location with plenty of parking makes it even more appealing. Skip the chains and support this gem for your next lunch!

Fantastic place that would have been impossible to find without the help of Google. If you think "this is a business park there's no way there's a restaurant here" you're going the right way. My breakfast burrito was fantastic and my partners bagel was perfect.

Friendly employees, cold brew coffee was delicious, I recommend the BLT with added on avocado which was also delicious, fast delivery time. Would definitely come and eat here again!
