There large chocolate chip cookies are pretty good. Not crumbly, full of chocolate chips and quite tasty. Found a childhood favorite which did not disappoint me; hammemtaschen ( sp?) It is a egg flour pastry in a triangle design with a fruit filling in the center. Good enough o evoke positive childhood memories of going to the corner German bakery.

Whenever I'm in the area, I like coming here for late evening coffee and dessert with friends. Desserts and beverages are fine for most part and the fact that I can go somewhere other than IHOP for late nite chat and nibble is a bonus. Most of the stuff on the menu are ordinary fare and competent at best. However,... More

Ate here twice in three days and was very satisfied with the food and the service. The Ginger Soy flank steak was very well cooked and the seasonal veggies were tasty. The serving staff were tremendous. Our 2nd time was for breakfast on the way home and the omelets were outstanding. The waitress made the meal even better - Greyson... More

I went to Amphora's with a friend while visiting Northern Virginia. We went there on a recommendation, looking for a quiet place to chat late on a Sunday night, that would have quality food and wide-open hours. We had a good time. I had the Greek platter with the variety of different traditional Greek foods (and it was all delicious).... More

We discovered this place back in early 2002-ish and make a point to stop every time we come back into the area. Good food, good service, reasonable prices and the bakery does an amazing job. The menu has lots of variety, there's something for everyone here. Portion sizes are also nice. I usually have to get the desert to go,... More

Went to Amphora's for lunch and it was a great eating experience. Burgers, chicken strips, turkey club, appetizers, Cobb salad, wraps and breakfast, something to please everyone in our large group. Everything was hot and delicious especially the coconut cream pie we shared for dessert! First visit for me but regular haunt for rest of the group.

The serving was very large and came with a salad and fresh rolls. Very authentic. I had a nice house white zinfandel wine to go with it. The service was also... More

Late night best time! We always like to come here and eat late around 9pm but we have the creepy old Manager So now that he's not there we love to spend more time. Great service, wonderful welcome, and amazing food.

I visit the Dulles international Airport for a specific reason, at the beginning of the baseball season … I've done this for 25+ years. Each time, I visit Amphora's for breakfast. Some might say "it is tradition;" others might say "you don't know any other place." I respond, "This is the best breakfast you can get." As a diner, it... More
