Love this place

The TO DO Cafe is a great hidden gem. It is a small restaurant. They have the best local seafood and comfort food in the area! We always stop in whenever we arein the area and the owners know us by name. It is that kind of place!

Wanted a nice local place for my daughter & I to eat lunch before leaving Tappahannock. To Do is wonderful! Hand patted hamburgers & hand cut fries, home made desserts! Everything was fresh & great! Service was excellent, nice decor & it was clean, including the bathrooms :-) Will definitely be stopping by when going through again!

Stopped here based on Trip Advisor reviews. The decor was not fancy but the homemade food and friendly service were excellent. Try the Humming Pig cake-couldn't be more delicious!

Friendly couple, Bob and Diane Lentz, run a wonderful small restaurant and carryout. Service with a smile - and hug! - added to delicious food make this a great place to eat. We both had the crab bisque and pulled pork sandwhiches with sides, way too much food, but each bite was so tasty we just kept eating. Obviously popular... More

This place was amazing. We stopped for lunch and were not disappointed. The crab cakes were delic and the homemade cakes/pies were to die for!!! The facilities were very clean and the staff was super friendly. Stop here for an unexpected treat.

This past Friday night I friend and I enjoyed their wonderful selection of specials at to do café. Make sure you call before 8 PM two to get them to serve you. Some diners like to go late, but this is a mom-and-pop place started years ago and it is imperative that you understand their hours. My cold shrimp was... More

This is great for a quick, casual lunch. Yes, lots if the menu is fried, but the crab cake and fried flounder sandwiches were great. Kids menu too.

Plain and simple- the seafood is not fresh despite the location near the Rappahannock river. My husband and I both had a seafood dinner and it was a waste of time. The food had been frozen at one point.

Not a fancy décor but not fancy prices, either! Great sandwiches and burgers; fabulous crab cakes. All the desserts are homemade and worth saving room for - in particular, they make a KILLER key lime pie.
