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.

The carrot cake was delicious and the ham, cheddar and apple biscuit sandwich hit the spot. One of my sisters enjoyed her 1670 sampler plate, while the other one's croissant sandwich was good, except the bread was a little over toasted. Nevertheless it was an enjoyable experience.

Had a wonderful lunch at the Carrot Tree where everything is home made. Don't miss the carrot cake, it's the best we've ever had.

Traveled to Yorktown from Williamsburg while on a driving vacation thru Virginia. Looked for a place to eat lunch before touring. Found the Carrot Tree. The place was small and quaint. The homemade food, especially soups, were excellent. All four of us enjoyed the food and it was moderately priced. Great find!!!

we stopped here for a light lunch whilst we were exploring Yorktown. A club wrap, a hummus dip with veg and pitta, then a shared sweet, a carrot cake sandwich....... All were superb, tasty, well presented and VERY reasonably priced.

Probably one of the cheaper places to get lunch or an early dinner[ as I believe they close at 6] in Yorktown. We both got a wrap, both of which were very good. Our sides were great too and all seemed homemade. We came back later for desserts, the carrot cake is a must! Wish they were open latter so... More

Quaint tea room renovated from a motel in Williamsburg, Va. The sandwiches and desserts are homemade. The chicken salad and soups are delicious. The desserts (carrot cake, chocolate cake petit fours) are wonderful. A must stop if in the Williamsburg area.

This is a delightful little place to eat, we stopped for a lite lunch before heading out to sail. Our hostess recommend the quiche and the tomato bisque soup, I found it just right, my husband on the other hand ordered the barbecue sandwich with potato salad and coleslaw. He commented that it was better than homemade maybe because Debbie... More

Go early because the place fills up not only with the Tourist but the Locals as well. There a couple locations of the Carrot Tree but you will not find the locations with the same quality of food, service & to top it off in Attractive Historic Downtown Yorktown as in this location. Take in some lunch in a turn... More

We came across this cute little lunch place while visiting the Yorktown battlefield site and museum. I think that it was a really great find. The food was tasty and fresh, the service was good and the location just outside the trolley site was a bonus. I had the gazpacho and quiche combo and it tasted homemade. Also, the freshly-brewed...

Sit inside or out and enjoy friendly service and healthy lunch options. Couples, friends and family friendly. As a break between visiting the historic sites of Yorktown, it was perfect.
