Great atmosphere

This is a really great place and atmosphere. The staff is nice. The wait was so long that i had to change my order from "here"to "to go," as the wait was over 15 minutes. As well the coffee was not special

$12.50 for a tiny 1/2 sandwich, 1/2 bowl of soup, and a coffee PLUS when you run your card they give you choices of how much you want to tip... the counter person who does nothing but put in your order and take your money; you have to go get your own food and clear your own table. The food... More

I went here in December 2015 after going in May 2011 originally. It wasn't as good as I remembered. They make their menu seem very local and fresh, etc, but honestly the food is not that great. Portions not large, nothing particularly delicious about what they served for either breakfast or lunch. I had the egg sandwich with havarti and... More

The front staff was friendly and the line was short when we arrived. My family (5 of us) sat outside with our 2 dogs to enjoy lunch with our son during his lunch break from work. The soup was delicious, salad yummy and sandwiches great too. Sadly one of our sandwiches took 15 minutes longer than the rest of our... More

A great place, whether stopping by for refreshments while on a walk to Belle Isle or to stay awhile. The food is always fresh and the drinks are delicious. I love the local offerings, including art on the wall.

After passing this place dozens of times over a few months I finally decided to give it a try for lunch. It's very nice inside with high ceilings, old school wooden structure, and huge windows, but that's the highlight of going there. I'm not sure why I paid $12 for such a small, forgettable sandwich and drink. I ordered the... More

I ate breakfast here on 9/29/15 and again had an enjoyable experience. Since the weather was cool and dry, they opened the floor-to-ceiling doors across the front and I enjoyed the open-air dining. The coffee and lox entre were excellent. This is perhaps my tenth experience with this restaurant and the coffee beverages and breakfast food have been consistently very... More

Just down the street from the Berkeley Hotel, was a great place to rest while waiting for our room to be ready. Coffee was excellent and the bakery items were great as well. HAd breakfast there on the second day in Richmond, and it was good as well. Convenient and not too expensive. And service with a smile!

We stayed just around the corner from Urban Farmhouse and I think we must have stopped in at least twice a day during our visit. From coffee and breakfast sandwiches to wine and soup, they have a little bit of everything and focus on local, organic ingredients wherever possible. Definitely recommend though service can be a little slow.
