This place is adorable. They have such wonderful sandwiches on homemade bread. They also have excellent side items and soups. The ham biscuits are to die for! Oh and not to mention - the dessert! I always go for the chocolate chess pie when they have it and my husband gets the carrot cake (I always steal a bite of... More

I love the witty tongue-in-cheek menu. I like the sandwiches and I definitely enjoy the pastries. The prices are definitely reasonable too. I wish I had heard about this place when it opened 15 years ago.

So, Carrot Tree is back in Yorktown. I reviewed it before when it was in a historic house closer to the visitor center. I found it to be a better value this time. I had a roast beef wrap that seemed totally stuffed with good stuff and came with a generous side of delicious potato salad for around nine bucks.... More

Looks plain on the outside but put don't let that put you off. Lovely clean fresh interior. Rear Terrace as well. I noticed a comment about no southern hospitality. I would describe them as reserved. Nothing wrong with that. Mouthwatering homemade cakes. The menu says everyday all food is made fresh from scratch. Homemade special mushroom and spinach quiche with... More

There is not alot of choices at Yorktown and I had read good reviews of this restaurant and it was also the most reasonably priced. Everything we ordered was good, from the General Grant sandwich, ham and cheese sandwich, flat bread melted cheese and the pulled pork. The general Grant sandwich which my husband ordered was the tastiest with walnuts... More

After our Jamestown visit, we stopped for lunch on our way to Williamsburg. Re-furbished house, and not for crowds. Medium pricing on food and the BEST CARROT CAKE, I have ever had. My wife is a carrot cake fanatic, we make it ourselves on occasion and being from the South (Atlanta) have tried it from a number of excellent bakeries.... More

This was a great lunch stop. Don't judge it by the outside the food was good! Don't go if you are in a rush but the service was good. The got 8 of us in and out in 45 minutes. Definitely will stop back in if we come this way again!

Just because a group of 33 Girls Scouts showed up and the Manager forgot to tell the staff.....is no excuse for the service we received. With all the other places to eat in the area, we left and opted to spend our money someplace else where we felt welcomed.

My daughter's Girl Scout troop stopped in for lunch after a Jamestown tour. The leader called in advance the week prior to see if the place would take a group our size. She said the woman was very friendly and welcoming, however that was not the reception we received when we showed up. They acted like they didn't want to... More

Great food and quaint atmosphere. Service was a bit slow and the room was frigid. About 8 of us in total and all had good meals. Previously got their carrot cake. As the name implies, they have great cakes and pies.
