They have a great and varied gift shop at very reasonable prices. For me the ham biscuits were dry and the ham sparse. Salty, though. We had Brunswick stew which was ok but then it is not one of my favs. The place itself is an old house made into a restaurant. We were there as a group with no... More

We stopped here on our way home from OBX and were not disappointed. It's essentially a house made into a restaurant with a great little gift shop. The service was fast and friendly. The good was good. ..LOVE the pancakes. The biscuits weren't what I was expecting and were a little dry for me but I think it's just a... More

This is the place to eat genuine old-south breakfast in a very old-south environment. The hospitality is southern, the decoration, the staff are very friendly. Good food and a cultural excursion in one.

6 of us met here to celebrate 2 Birthdays and all were happy! We were a little early so shopped while we waited and found a few items on their sale table we had to have! Melinda the house cat was resting by the cash register. Then it was lunch time. Service from all was outstanding. The food was wonderful... More

I started coming here as a child and my parents had already been before. As a child I was obsessed with the chicken and dumplings - literally obsessed. I talked about it when we weren't visiting here, and when we came to williamsburg, it was our first stop. I learned to make dumplings from an article I found in the... More

The service was good and friendly and we enjoyed our breakfast as well. After we ate we enjoyed shopping in the attached gift shop and... More

Upon arriving I wasn't sure. It literally looks like a house...but the inside was charming. The waitesses were very friendly and hustling to keep everyone happy. You sit at kitchen tables in a small dining room. The menu was small but covered most anything you'd want for breakfast. Even fresh mimosas! I went with the creamed ham over biscuits since... More
