We are Amanda and Cassidy, the owners of The Hidden Gem. We met in our past careers and have always managed to find our way back to working with each other. We've always complimented each other as a team and decided to stop working for "the man" and took a leap of faith and decided to do it on our own. Combined we have over 28 years in food service. We pride in everything we make to ensure the customers are always first. At The Hidden Gem, we believe that there is a more “reasonable” way to eating great food! Where you get more than what you expect. We’re obssesively passionate about it and our mission is to make sure you are getting what you deserve! We’re not afraid to fail, it’s how we achieve what we do as a team and have fun doing it!
"I cant say enough good stuff about this place. The friendly workers, the AMAZING quality food, the perfect prices for breakfast & lunch. My office orders from here almost once a week. .50 cookies are to die for! And french fries are always cripsy & delicious. Keep being awesome Hidden Gem!"
"Best food for lunch in Melville area by far. My co workers and I get from here usually 2-3 a week. Have a nice variety of sandwiches and wraps. I get something different almost every time and it’s all delicious!"
"I love this place with all of my heart and soul. It really is a hidden gem. Amazing food and amazing prices. My favorite is the brie and apple melt!"
"Great food and great people. Always clean. The meal plans offered are a great option during this pandemic for seniors who can't go grocery shopping. Let's work hard to keep small businesses like this one afloat during hard times."
"This place... it’s just fantastic. The food, the environment it’s all wonderful. I highly recommend everything on the menu. Will definitely Be going back."
"Hidden Gem is appropriately named! ....Also, as a first time guest, they gave my wife and I free cookies. The co-owner (my apologies for not getting her name) was engaging and very pleasant. Afterwards, I instantly signed up for their rewards and will be a regular customer. Open for breakfast and lunch 8 AM - 3 PM. Thanks to The Hidden Gem Cafe!
"The place is was a little hard to find but their sandwiches are amazing!! The portions are huge for the price. Very tasty. The iced coffee was good also."
"...FYI they’re in the basement of the bank building. These prices are incredible for the quality of food you’re getting. Less than $5 for a huge egg sandwich?! Amazing! Can’t recommend enough. Will be back for sure"
"Great little restaurant inside First Nation Bank building on the lower level. Has a few gluten free choices on the menu. I explained that my husband has Celiac Disease, so they washed down the prep equipment before making his food. The owners are also super nice and friendly and the food was delicious and reasonably priced. 5 stars!"
