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.

Very good sandwiches and excellent, beautiful deserts. Quaint little establishment. Wait was a little long for sandwiches. Potato salad was too heavy on the dill for me. BBQ was good but not special like our other choices. Will definitely visit again when in the area. Would be a regular if I lived closer!

Having enjoyed the Carrot Tree a number of years ago we were very, very disappointed to return in early May, 2014 and find it closed-up. No sign - dark building! We grieve the loss!

This place has great sandwiches, soup and most of all deserts. We eat at the one in Jamestown more frequently but this one is equally good and in a charming setting. Prices are reasonable and the service is always good when we visit. Love to support our locals as well.

Good food and great atmosphere. Still supposed to be a ghost in the building and that is fun. Read the information on the history of the Carrot Tree.

The Carrot Tree was a nice place for a quiet lunch. It is now closed due to lease agreement problems with the US Park Service. They plan to open up again in Yorktown at the Watermens Museum which is on the waterfront

Carrot Tree is no longer in the historic home on Main St. An agreement to renew the lease could not be reached with the Park Service. It will be re-opening in the Carriage House of the Watermans Museum on Water St. The food is prepared at another location and brought to Yorktown, so the menu is limited to dishes that... More

such a neat little historic spot, inside of a house built in the 1800's. Nice to meet for lunch, very cozy, too bad the Bureaucrats caused them so many headaches that they closed up.
