My parents suggested this place for us to go eat and watch the World Cup. I've been living in Dallas for 7 years so I haven't had a chance to go until now. I came to this building every day as a kid, back when it was Rickett's. I'm glad to say it is now a great place to go... More

My husband and I stopped here for lunch after taking. Rode to Orange County, VA. The storefront was not particularly inviting and we had to wait almost 1/2 hour for a table. We had chicken vegetable soup that was absolutely delicious and my hisband's sandwich was also very good. My lunch which was some sort of chicken salad that was... More

One of the best eateries in Orange: possibly in the county. Verging on very fine cuisine. Really satisfying in its contents and quality. Fresh local food well prepared and served, good range of dishes and wines Excellent restaurant atmosphere and reasonably priced. Wish I could go back but I am 3300 miles away in London, England.

Terrific place in Orange. Interesting menu and good coffees. Weekend brunch was excellent. The only criticism is that the bar area closed far too soon for a Saturday night (last call as 9:30) even though they had customers. All-in-all, definitely worth a visit though.

After an afternoon at a local winery, we found The Light Well online for a late lunch. Located in an old, converted hardware store, the atmosphere is casual, comfortable and very conducive to catching up with old friends. Their menu is simple but I was impressed with the quality of the cooking and service that I didn't expect to find.... More

Had the wontons for appetizer- very spicy hot! Chicken chimichangas for dinner were excellent with grilled asparagus for side. The service was excellent, great atmosphere, female vocalist playing guitar- price very reasonable.

We stopped in for coffee and brunch, and the staff was extremely friendly. We got our meal to go, and our food was ready incredibly quickly! The staff also paid attention to special food allergy requests. The chai and frappe we got were fantastic as well! Definitely a lovely, local place to stop.

Excellent food and drinks at this friendly pub & restaurant in the historic district of Orange, VA. I had a unique salad and a local micro brew ale. Friendly service and comfortable setting.
