Even if you have to drive over several bridges, this is the place to go for breakfast, brunch, or lunch!! Everyone who goes there with me raves about whatever they eat. Especially popular are the softshell crab eggs benedict and the crabcake eggs benedict. YUMMMMMM.

We stopped by for breakfast while visiting the Northern Neck of Virginia and had a great meal at this little cafe. The waitress was super nice and the food very good! Glad we found it.

Best place for breakfast in Kilmarnock, Virginia! The grits are like none you have had before. Small place, but very efficient. Food, service and atmosphere all excellent.

You’ll do a double-take when driving by this place because it’s an odd pairing indeed. However, you need to turn around, pull in, and park because it’s worth it. It’s small, so you may have to wait depending on the time of day. We went...More

i have seen a customer inside in a wheelchair, but I don't know how they entered so I can't advise the best way to do that. I would suggest calling them to ask about it. The number is (804) 435-0405
