Will be back!!!

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!

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

So excited to find a place in Lynchburg with mango lassi - and much more! We stopped here for lunch and have zero regrets. Their mango lassi is delicious. We also ordered falafel - I believe it was a Lebanese style falafel, served cool. It was a little dry to my taste (I'm used to Greek and Palestinian falafel) but... More

I enjoy visiting family operated ethnic restaurants and this one provides double benefits, since the menu includes both Lebanese and Indian offerings. I have never been enamored by the name "Hot & Cold", but the enjoyable taste of the food prepared on premises overcomes that minor marketing flaw. You can't go wrong with the daily Indian lunch buffet, but don't... More

I slipped into Hot and Cold Cafe on a chilly night to grab some dinner before heading to a concert downtown. The owner and his wife both greeted me cordially and told me to pick a seat. I initially intended just to order water, but the owner convinced me to give something else a try (he simply pointed out the... More
