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.

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.

Outstanding little restaurant in a historic building in the center of the Yorktown Village. Limited menu, but great local food. My wife and I like to go just for tea and dessert.

This café has a wonderful lunch menu. Although their menu is not extensive, everything we tried was wonderful. Our family of four each tried a different entrée. The ham and cheese quiche was excellent, as was the pulled pork bbq. And their desserts...Yummm! We tried an assortment tray of 5 samples. It was great!

As a vegan I sometimes find it hard to find a place to eat with my family that offers any vegan options for me. While in Yorktown we stumbled upon this little nugget while walking along the riverfront looking for a light lunch. We were so delighted to find something for everyone (e.g.- ME) that we sat down to eat.... More

My wife and I had just finished kayaking the York River with Patriot Tours and decided to walk down by the river. Carrot Tree is literally right outside of Patriot Tours’ doors. It’s the first restaurant you come upon in a row of three restaurants. We looked at each of the menus and found their menu and just their simplicity... More

The egg salad BLT wrap was seasoned with dill just right and the bacon was crisp. My husband had a roast beef wrap concoction with crispy onions and a spicy sauce that was a taste sensation with the crunch and spice. The potato salad, again with the right amount of dill and seasoning also the slaw was fresh and tasty.... More

Stopped in for a quick bite and came back two more times on our visit to VA. I had the chunky chicken salad and it was great, I couldn't get enough of the Gazpaccho soup (had it twice), I also got the chunky chicken salad to pack in my husbands lunch and he also enjoyed it very much.
