The Best Food in Ocala – Chelsea’s Top Menu Items

At Chelsea Coffee, we stake our reputation on our coffee prowess. When you stop by our Ocala coffee shop location, you can expect a warm greeting and a craveable caffeine concoction. It’s this predilection for coffee perfection that has made us Ocala’s best coffee shop for over a decade.

What many people don’t realize is just how superb the rest of our menu is. Sure, we have delicious Chelsea Chillers and a selection of tantalizing teas, but we go beyond beverages. That’s right; Chelsea is home to some of the tastiest treats, most bountiful breakfasts, and alluring lunches in town.

Whether you’re a Chelsea regular who has never branched out and tried our food menu, or you’re in Ocala and searching for somewhere to enjoy a heavenly bite to eat, we’re here to highlight a handful of our favorite menu items. We’re sure your tastebuds will be tempted in no time!

Chelsea Coffee – Where to Have Breakfast (and Lunch) in Ocala

The food scene in Ocala is growing, and we couldn’t be happier. Not only does this provide locals with more delectable destinations to visit, but it also pushes us to continue elevating the bar-setting standards we have for quality and scrumptiousness.

At Chelsea, our menu and eclectic shop are thoughtfully designed so you can enjoy our food to-go or by sitting down and immersing yourself in the buzz that only a local coffee shop has. Whether you’re on the go or gathering with friends and family, we’re proud to recommend the following favorites from our extensive food menu.

Breakfast Bagels and Breakfast Sandwiches

No coffee shop is complete without fresh bagels and bagel-based breakfasts. When we say we take our bagels seriously, we mean it. You won’t find any stale, mass-produced bagels in this coffeehouse—no way!

From classic toasted bagels with toppings like butter and cream cheese to more extravagant offerings like bagels dressed with capers, red onion, and lox, our bagel game is strong. Of course, we couldn’t stop there, either. Our bagel breakfast sandwiches are the talk of the town thanks to their egg-cellent eggs, choice of meats and cheeses, and optional vegetables.

Don’t forget, you can even choose the type of bagel for your breakfast. We have a wide range of flavors, including classic bagels, asiago bagels, sundried tomato bagels, and more.

Baked Goods and Quiche

While we have a stellar cast of consistent menu items at Chelsea Coffee, we also like to keep things fresh and interesting. That’s why our daily provision of baked goods and quiches varies. We like to let creativity lead us and inspiration take hold. One day, you may be tempted by cinnamon rolls and a broccoli cheddar quiche; the next day, you may find seasonal treats and a more traditional breakfast quiche.

No matter what fills our pastry case or our quiche pans, you can rest assured that they are fresh, homemade, and delicious enough to keep you coming back for more.

Specialty Sandwiches

If you’re searching for a specialty sandwich shop in Ocala, FL, we have good news—you’ve found it. Chelsea’s specialty sandwiches are ooey-gooey, savory, and downright dreamy. We like to pile the good stuff high and serve it hot, so if that sounds up your alley, keep on reading.

Our Hot Pastrami Reuben is a personal favorite, towering with stacks of steaming pastrami, melty Swiss cheese, and a healthy dose of sauerkraut and Russan dressing. Of course, the title for the top specialty sandwich in Ocala is ultra-competitive with our Classic Club and Italian Sub staking their claim to the throne.

For those who prefer poultry, you can’t go wrong with any of our grilled chicken sandwiches. From the Sundried Tomato Panini to the Buffalo Grilled Chicken Sandwich, we can craft up chicken goodness like you wouldn’t believe.

Wraps, Salads, and Deli Selections

Make no mistake; our specialty sandwiches tend to steal the show (for good reason). If you’re in the mood for something simpler, health-conscious, or perhaps colder and more refreshing on a hot Florida day, the rest of our lunch menu has you covered.

Our wraps are available in sundried tomato, spinach, or plain varieties. You can pair them with a side of your choice—either southern potato salad, a bag of chips, or a fresh mix of fruit. We have all the classic wraps you know and love, including Chicken Bacon Ranch, Buffalo Chicken, and a Grilled Chicken Caesar Wrap. You can also venture into unfamiliar territory, like Hummus Wraps and BLT-Avocado options.

Our specialty salads keep the hype alive by giving you an opportunity to get your greens (and actually enjoy it). With options like our Chef Salad and Craisins Walnut Chicken Salad, the flavors are as eclectic and wonderful as our barista’s personalities. With a smattering of dressings to choose from and plenty of fresh veggies, meats, and cheeses to complement them, this is one healthy choice you won’t regret.

Then, there are our deli selections. These classic cold alternatives to our hot specialty sandwiches are sure to hit the spot when you’re craving a filling meal on a hot Florida day. Choose your bread (marble rye, 9 grain, white, or a sub roll), meat (Ham, Pastrami, Egg Salad, Grilled Cheese, and more), cheese (provolone, gruyere, and more, oh my!), and toppings to create a high-quality sandwich that fits your tastes to a T.

Seasonal Soups

Nothing says comfort quite like homemade soups. At Chelsea, we’re a small local coffee shop that cares about providing our patrons with quality food and an exceptional experience. Our soups take those principles and put them into action.

If you want to taste the love and experience what Chelsea Coffee is all about, you should stop by for a cup—or a bowl—of hot, fresh, homemade goodness.
