Closest Thing to a Tea Room in the Williamsburg Area

Stopped in for a light lunch late afternoon on Memorial Day for a light lunch. Ordered the US Grant wrap (Crane Berry) and the Brookstone wrap (turkey, and spinach). Both were wonderful, but the surprise was the Spinach and Artichoke dip appetizer! Tried to buy some additional to take home, but... read more

I had lunch there today. There were so many good items on the menu, hard to select one. All different from your typical lunch meal. I selected the Strawberry Field. It was a croissant with Turkey and brie cheese with strawberries. Also, served with an excellent Orzo salad with spinach (nice change). This establishment has a wonderful assortment of homemade...

Moved to the area last year and had this restaurant on my list to try. Just average, limited menu, had the sampler of salads. Someday I will stop in and try the carrot cake but not for a meal.

It's just a little cafe (maybe 10 tables or so) in what looks to be an old motel from the 1950's. We had a great lunch, but the carrot cake for dessert is not to be missed. I can't wait to go back.

We were on our way to Jamestown and wanted lunch. Great little place. Not very much seating tho. Takes a little time to get your food, but worth it. All homemade. The old dominion biscuits with ham are the best! We just had the 2 appetizer size since we each had a wrap sandwich, which were excellent as well. No... More

This little restaurant is right down from Jamestown Settlement and the ferry. It looks like an old motel, and does not have much parking. There are probably a dozen tables inside, although they have seating out back in the summer. The decor is rabbits and carrots - casual, cute but not fancy. They serve breakfast and lunch, and everything I... More

The Carrot Tree is one of the gems of Williamsburg. Tucked away on Jamestown Road, near Jamestown Visitor's Center and close to the water it earns it's due with delicious sandwiches. You can carry out or eat in either way make sure you try their carrot cakes. Delicious - like Grandma used to make. For any occasion, order and pick... More

The carrot cake was delicious,,as usual -- but the Jefferson sandwich ham was not trimmed well, so that there were gristly bits which were hard to bit off and hard to chew. This resulted in a mess as the chewy ham slid off the pimiento cheese layer. I would order the cake again, but not the Jefferson sandwich.

Love coming here for lunch and now they are using real plates and glasses instead of plastic which is nice. In the winter they serve tomato basil soup and brunswick stew which are both delicious esp with the ham bisquits. The roast beef sandwich is also very good but the high point is dessert such as grandma's chocolate cake and... More
