Think Waffle House with decorations. It has basic diner options you expect for breakfast or lunch. We didn't have to wait for a seat, but the place started filling up around lunch time. This was easy for our family of four. We ended up paying about $5-6 a plate.

My wife and I took my oldest son and his family here for brealfast one Sunday morning based off reviews we had seen on this site. We wanted something differant, away from the normal tourist area. This is a unique cafe. We were not sure what to expect and we did not know how big this cafe was or was... More

We chose the diner for the Trip Advisor reviews, and we were not disappointed. First - I would say the "cafe" is more a diner than a cafe. The interior reminded me more of a Waffle House than a market place cafe. The cement block walls are decorated with a few pictures, but my favorite was the restaurant's own signage.... More

We went here for breakfast, we discovered this place at the end of our week, so only got to go one time, but everything was good, the regular pancakes, the pecan banana and blueberry were awesome, this is a nice place to eat, probably more locals than tourists. Open Breakfast and lunch only.

Tried it out off a review, shared the "big omelette" and the "loaded hash browns" with my wife and we were stuffed. Very good! Mom had the French toast with sausage patties and loved it. Sausage definitely had to be homemade, delicious. Coffee not so much, although water in the area is nasty from the chlorine so little can be... More

Sunday morning we were looking for good food quickly. Using our sources, this place popped up with great reviews. Have DINER expectations. The place isn't fancy or grand but the food was excellent. Our wait time was only ten mins. We ordered omelettes, pancakes, grits, fruits and the corn cakes. Everyone's plate was cleaned! Service was speedy and polite. Try... More

The breakfast here is very good, especially if you're trying to avoid a tourist trap (Williamsburg has plenty of those) and go somewhere locals go too. It is a traditional diner (read: small and kitchy), with an occasional Greek item on the menu (owners are Greek). There are other breakfast places in Williamsburg I might go first, but we do... More

We were camping, but decided to eat most meals out. We read about Five Forks Cafe online and decided to give it a try. We took the Ferry over from Surry County, and easily found the restaurant. The waitresses were nice and attentive to your needs. They serve basic breakfast entrees, plus have daily specials. My husband and I are... More

My wife visited FFC on 6/7/14 for breakfast, it was good but I can't say its the best breakfast in Williamsburg. The grits were good, my wife had an Omelet and it was just average. The place is small and just average in apperance. It is a good place to eat and we would good back again, but it is... More

This breakfast place was recommended to us. We were disappointed in the food: the home fries were yukky and the omlet skimpy; however, the blueberry pancakes were good. Prices are low. Dinner is small and cramped.
