Went after church for breakfast. Done right, fast and excellent service for reasonable price. What's not to like about that? Seating is a bit cozy given limited size of the building. Kitchen is merely an alcove of the dining room; kinda different. Excellent coffee compliments the meal.

A wonderful, small, cozy, friendly place to eat! The food is very good, and plenty of it. Sometimes you have to wait for a table, its worth it!! No wifi (talk to each other!), no loud music (no music at all! goody).

Fun spot, creative menu and out of this world dessert! Very crowded at lunch, so plan to arrive before or after the crowd

The menu is wonderful and varied, it typifies what you might hope to find in a southeastern Virginia town. It is delicious and you will not be disappointed. Everything is prepared in front of you. It is just funky enough to make you smile as you enter, and the art work is evocative of the area, which adds to the... More

I had noticed this place, never would have stopped had I not checked tripadvisor. Had unbelievable soft shell (crab) eggs Benedict. Took my husband sausage and gravy to go, which he said was the best he had ever had. And he LOVES sausage gravy whenever we travel south. Only recommendation is stronger coffee and WiFi. I love quirky places with... More

Trying to get a table at this establishment may take some time but the food is well worth the wait. All our family members that visit this area make a special trip for lunch to this place on each visit. It's that good!!!

Open for breakfast & Lunch & tucked away in a renovated gas station, the food is always good here, particularly the daily specials. Standard sandwiches that you just can't find most places....chicken salad on multi-grain toast is a favorite!! The Cobb salad is wonderful w/ freshly pulled chicken & all the other goodies. It gets busy w/ the locals at... More

We ate lunch at CarWash Cafe this past Saturday. The food was good but expensive. I ordered a coke and received a glass mainly filled with ice (the price was $1.89). It was very hard to get the waitress's attention. I had the potato salad as a side. It was also good but had more egg whites and onions than... More

I have only ate here one time, but it was very very good. If you want lunch be sure to call ahead, as it gets very full. My hamburger was very tasty and I enjoyed that they had lots of options for sides, such as fruit ( mine was cut up and fresh) and different veggies. I would love to... More

We felt right at home. The food was superlative - fresh and tasty with gluten-free and vegetarian options. Staff was efficient, and the decor is simply fun. It was filled with locals when we had lunch there.
