We were able to satisfy hundgry kids

Unexciting, but adequate. Really good bread in the sandwiches. Felt like the rest of the place--barely getting enough business to survive.

While visiting the Jamestown Settlement, we stopped into the cafe for a light lunch. Surprisingly, they offered many healthy choices such as humous, yogurts, fresh fruit, etc. How refreshing not to be limited to the usual greasy junk!

My Lady and I had a very disappointing lunch experience with this café. I tried the peanut soup and each of us had a hot dog. This peanut soup stands out as one the most distasteful dishes I’ve ever had. My Lady had a taste and she agreed. Awful! I threw the bowl in the garbage. The hot dog is... More

Our family of 6 came here after visiting the Settlement outdoor exhibits. Our grandkids got hot dogs. I've never seen such disgusting colored hot dogs in my life. My deli sandwich was OK but the bread seemed a few days old. If you go to Jamestown, eat elsewhere.

Food was fresh and well-prepared. Several different offerings with pizza and sandwiches. Pleasant atmosphere for families within the museum building facilities.

Located on the settlement between the actual fort and the museum. Sandwhiches were real good with also a Bistro type quality. Not a very large establishment but a great place to enjoy before the museum or waiting for a tour to start.

A reasonably priced cafeteria-style place that offers a variety from pizza to sandwiches made to order to burgers and other sandwiches off the grill. Exactly what we needed.

We are a family of five: two girls ages 11 and 14, a boy age 9. We visited here in early July. We were in Virginia for a 5 night trip to the Historic Triangle and Busch Gardens. We were visiting Jamestown settlement and this was more convenient than leaving for lunch. It was pretty good. They had a lot... More

we chose the cod tenders and cheese fries both of which were outstanding, crisp and hot with not a trace of grease in the bottom of the baskets ...our fruit salad was fresh and sweet and the brownie we shared so big it covered my husbands entire palm...all for less than what we have paid at many fast food places...

The rest rooms were clean, the food appealed to different tastes and the prices were reasonable. Plus, the cafe was a nice escape from the heat and humidity outside.
