It's exactly as the name says with hot and cold plates. I had a chef's salad. It came out well prepared.

My husband and I ate here for lunch on our anniversary. The owner was very friendly and welcoming. The quality of the good and the atmosphere made me feel like I was dining at home with the owner. Very small establishment, and not a huge selection of buffet items, but still, the service and the authenticity of the food made... More

The food is amazing! Offered a variety of favors and suits all "spice levels." The portions are perfect, if you order off the menu! Has a buffet with great looking food! The chicken curry was good and so were the gyros, baklava, hummus, tabouli, and the mango pudding. There is some newly hired staff-hostess/ waitress, she was very nice. The... More

During our couple of years living in Lynchburg we must have eaten at the Hot and Cold Cafe more than 50 times. Uday is the best- food is delicious and the prices are right. I miss that wonderful hole in the wall so much!

The food is good, that is true. All of the a la carte things tend to drive the price up a bit but the buffet is great. Small and comfortable dining. The frozen coffee drink is overpriced.

Arrived after closing on a Wednesday night, and the owner was kind enough to invite us in for dinner. He was not only our waiter, but also the chef who was prepping for the next day. The salad included a homemade cheese and delicious homemade dressing. The lentil soup was a little spicy, but in a good way. As an... More

We were traveling through Lynchburg on a roadtrip and I'm so glad we stopped here to have lunch. The buffet was fantastic, just what I needed and at a really reasonable price. The food is wonderful and the owner incredibly friendly and helpful. If we stop through Lynchburg again, we'll definitely be back. Highly recommend it.

My husband and I have been passing this little restaurant every week on our way to church. Last week we finally decided to stop in and give it a try! The food is delicious. It is fresh, full of flavor, and very reasonably priced. However, the highlight of our trip was meeting the owner. He played with our girls and... More
