Cafeteria food

It was just an overpriced cafeteria. Nothing special. Not the worst I've had but certainly not the best. Also a bit overpriced for what you get. It's ok in a pinch, but would recommend local establishments and cafes if you can swing the time.

Nothing to write home about - pre-made or fried food. It was also very busy when we were there and with the lines it was confusing where to order, and how to move through the lines.

After visiting the gift shop at Jamestown Settlement at midmorning, I went to the café for a quick cup of decaf coffee. As with most of this cafeteria-style restaurant, the coffee was self-serve after buying the cup at the cash register. The decaf coffee was of good quality. It was very hot. And, I got to add my own sweetener... More

Found the menu selection to be quite diverse for this type of setting. The food was very good and the price was reasonable. We watched the cafe staff feed a large school group in less than 5 mins. They made it look effortless.

Brunswick stew was thick and flavorful, the tomato soup was also good, and desserts were fresh and tasty. The employees were friendly and helpful. There are not many tables and the menu is quite limited, but this is a nice place for a snack or quick lunch. It's the only place to eat at Jamestown Settlement.

Our school group had a special buffet where you could only get certain items, but everything was great. We had choices of salad, hamburgers, chicken strips or pizza. We also got fries and cookies. Everyone seemed pleased. I thought the food was good for a café.

Located inside the Jamestown Living History Museum in Jamestown, the Cafe is convenient while visiting the museum and is not just the typical museum restaurant. They offer a nice variety of items. This was the first time that I had the opportunity of trying peanut soup and it was delicious. My wife had Chili and corn bread, and we split... More

Small and a bit out of the way but delish! Gourment sandwich offerings were unique. Husband and I split a sandwich and had plenty but it was so good I wished I'd order my own.

Nice selection of dishes that will keep both kids and adults happy. Such items as quiche are unusual and well made. A better option than the numerous pancake houses and fast food joints. We were pleasantly surprised, I was amazed to see the Montgomery Ward microwave to heat up food.. How long has that been there? I think Wards went... More
