Dry cakes and pastries taste like cardboard./ not fresh. Seating area inside is very small. No gluten free options available.

I sat on the patio under an umbrella and it was so very relaxing. It was a morning that I needed a break from my hectic life - this was a delight! I watched the visitors going to the beach and the shops.

On a tour of the Colonial Triangle, our visit to Yorktown was greatly enhanced by a delicious meal at Carrot Tree. Intimate inside or sit outdoors on the patio, a simple menu was generous in local choices and all delicious. Reasonably priced, it was a delight!

Very nice small restaurant for lunch. We had the US Grant wrap and a salad. Both were quite tasty and the carrot cake for dessert was perfect. The lady who waited on us was very nice and made good suggestions.

A bit expensive but you will get an excellent meal that is unusual and typical for the area. Service is good.

The Carrot Tree Kitchens are located in Yorktown, Jamestown, and Williamsburg VA. They are a must visit if you are in any of these locations. Carrot Cake and Key Lime Pie are my favorite desserts when they are on the menu and I have tried them all over the US. I can say without a doubt that these offerings whether... More

The Brunswick Stew was great, and the carrot cake awesome! The location is perfect, sitting on the York River, beautiful beach...perfect place to take your cake, find an outside bench, and watch the boats go by! Debbie, the owner, was very friendly and shared the history of her restaurant with us. Oh, and we couldn't resist taking one of her... More

Quaint establishment that was started over 15 years ago. Their new location on the Riverwalk along the York River makes a charming place to visit and have a marvelous home style meal. Their desserts are fantastic.

We went to Carrot Tree for lunch during a day where it was blisteringly hot outside. I had a bottle of water with me (to avoid dehydration) and the manager at Carrot Tree wouldn't even seat me. Granted there is a sign that says "No Outside Food or Drink" but it was over 100 degrees and I promised him I... More

The Brunswick stew is awesome....sandwiches good too. This TripAdvisor soft ware to record comments SUCKS however by requiring 100 characters when you real comments may be only 50
