Description: Cole Digges built this house about 1720. He was a son of the area’s most successful tobacco grower and chose to enter the merchant trade. Cole purchased the property in 1713 because it included wharves and warehouses at the foot of Read St. as well. In choosing to present this house as a restaurant, the National Park Service requested a low impact operation. The desire to preserve the historic integrity of the house precludes commercial dishwashing and high heat sources.

Lunch here is fantastic. Get the sampler and try a little bit of everything. My mom had the BBQ sandwich and it was really good. The desserts are homemade; try the peanut butter and chocolate cake.

Consistently outstanding food and service in an historic setting, especially good for lunch or for a romantic evening out any time (really nice by the fireside in winter).

We happened upon this gem, where everything is homemade! We loved everything we had, coffee, pastries, quiche and a wonderful location.

I'm not sure what it depends on, but the Carrot Tree can be a wonderful place during one visit, and deliver less than expected service/meals the next visit. There was management issues, contracts with the county of York and who knows what else, and that seemed to have a direct effect on the restaurant's output. Do not expect large servings,... More

On vacation, meandering through Yorktown, decided to get lunch there. Chose this little spot so we could sit in the sun on the patio. Little did we know we had stumbled on such good food. If you like healthy, creative wraps with unusual side salads... this is your place. Cute, fast, healthy, and terrific.

we ate here yesterday, we both had wraps. I had the Yorktown Onion... And it was delicious... All the tables had reserved signs and the waitress was questioned and she said ' it helps coral the folks outside". In other words, it makes them look really busy from outside. It was too chilly to eat outside, but it was sooooo... More

It was cold and windy but we ate outside because we had the dog with us. Despite the weather the meal was excellent. We had the Brunswick Stew which was chock full of white meat chicken and veggies. Completely hit the spot. Ordered a homemade buttermilk biscuit on the side and it was heavenly. The wine was an added bonus... More

I'm from Yorktown, and this is one of my favorite places to go in the area. It's a great place for the family or a date or whenever you just want a good sandwich. And don't forget to try one of their delicious deserts! The carrot cake is super good.

The Carrot Tree has moved from our favorite Main Street location but you can still find them on Water Street. New addition is "dinners to go". We had Shepherds Pie....it was very very good!

Again we found this place due to the TA reviews. We usually go for the little cafe type places. Yorktown by the river is a nice walk and the weather was perfect. If you use your smartphone to find places be warned, mine took me to the wrong place. I ended up in the blocked off section of Yorktown, up... More
