BEST Carrot Cake (ever) and Outstanding Barbecue!

We visited this little cafe to pick up barbecue to go based upon a friend's recommendation. We were NOT disappointed - outstanding BBQ (pulled pork, no fat, with a great taste-no sauce necessary)! We also picked up a slice of Carrot Cake, a lemon bar and lasagna - all delicious but the Carrot... read more

We spotted this little gem when driving through Yorktown. The food was delicious. It is a very small place and if you're going during peak season lunch it would be best to do a carry-out since there is hardly room to sit inside. You may get lucky and score a table outside. My only complaint is that the kitchen is... More

Nothing I couldn't whip up at home with a few ingredients. Not sure why people carry on about this place. Actually threw the lemon bar in the trash after two bites.

I ate here as one of the last things I did after a day of touring Yorktown and the sites there. There are a couple other restaurants in Yorktown near the riverfront area but they are very expensive. If you are looking for a light and cheap lunch this is the place for you. I had the gazpacho and the... More

Our expectations were high from the brochure write-up. The clerk didn't really know about gluten-free offerings. The rest were non-appetizing. The seating was limited. We left.

The menu is extremely creative and the choices difficult to make. Make sure you ask for a menu upon arrival and don't think what is in the "Grab and Go" unit is all they have to offer. We had no less than 10 people walk in and out during our lunch because they thought this was a carry out only... More

Had lunch here in the middle of a long day of sightseeing. Excellent adult lunches, but kid options were in short supply. Our 8 year old son opted for pita with cheese. (Melted cheese on top of pita bread.) A little overwhelming. Desserts of carrot cake and chocolate cake were wonderful.

We came here with friends for lunch on a busy Sunday afternoon and had to wait a while for service, but the wait was worth it. We sat outside where there was more room and you can people watch. The inside was a little small. The menu provides choices for every taste. I had the Hogg Island BBQ which was... More
