The cakes and pastries here are unbelievably good. Birthdays and special occasions are celebrated in our house with a cake from Vicki Lee's. If you love chocolate and haven't had the chocolate ganache cake, you need to do that right away. The cupcakes, macaroons, pastries - all are fabulous. If you want a truly spectacular and exquisite cake, get it... More

Vicki Lee's has wonderful pastries and desserts, as well as the kind of composed salads that are perfect for a light lunch. The patrons are an interesting mix of Belmont residents, although children and teenagers are notably absent. The food may be a little too healthy for them! I have found the staff very helpful on the many occasions when... More

The food is good but the staff is so rude, specially the owner, that I never feel like staying... They don't want people to sit at the bar to have a coffee even for 5 min, the reason.... No idea, the owner seems to be in another planet... I would rather go elsewhere

Full disclosure - We've only been to Vicki Lee's for Sunday brunch, and for us 3.5 stars is a more appropriate rating. Vicki Lee's is located in Cushing Sq., the "blue collar" neighborhood of Belmont, so the patrons are a fascinating mix of haves and have nots, with a noticeable skew towards retirees/social security beneficiaries and bored soccer moms gossiping...

Have had the lemon chicken several times. It's worth going back for again and again. And the cookies are to die for! Most of the ratings don't apply here because it's a drop-in lunch spot and we've only done takeout. But it's great for a quick takeout dinner or lunch when you're not up to cooking.

If you are in the area, stop by for a raspberry lime rickey and enjoy a fabulous dessert. I absolutely love the tuna sandwich at this place, and make a special trip just to have it. They put avocado and it tastes so good It also comes served with a salad and delicious pickled veggies.

If you care more about what a sandwich looks like than what it tastes like, then this is the place for you. I ordered from Vicki's with a few work colleagues for lunch and was expecting a quality gourmet sandwich considering the high prices. I ordered the Grilled Steak Sandwich for $10.50, it was terrible. I took my first bite... More

I really wanted to like this place a lot. I really did however my experience there yesterday was quite underwhelming. The wife and I made our way there for a last-minute meal and arrived around 1:30PM for what we were hoping could be a late brunch/lunch type of meal. We parked across the street in the public lot and walked... More

This is one of my go-to places for breakfast or lunch with a woman friend or acquaintance and was also perfect when I was lunching with my mother-in-law. Everyone I have brought has enjoyed it. but you want to bring someone who will want to indulge with you and order a pastry or two. The breakfasts are great -I like... More

I have always known that Vicki Lee's has great pastries, but for whatever reason, it was never on my radar for meals. I have changed that recently starting with the weekend brunch when I had the best pancakes ever. They are light with a bit of granola on the underside which gives them crunch. The next week I had a... More
