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

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.

About what you would expect from a free standing breakfast/lunch urban place. It is self service but the food is prepared quickly and you can stay as long as you want. Reasonably priced, especially considered the breakfasts in the hotels across the street and in the neighborhood.

Comfortable with friendly service and interesting, innovative breakfast and lunch fare. Had great breakfast sandwiches and a really tasty lunch. Went back at least five times while I was in Richmond, VA. It's the type of place where you can get a latte and spend the afternoon.

If you're really into the organic vibe, then this might be a good place to hang out and get some lunch or breakfast. Food was fine but nothing special. Limited menu of standard cafe options, aside from being all organic. Nice pleasant place with very slow food preparation even when they were not busy. We wouldn't return.

Went to this cafe to meet a friend. There were only 3-4 tables with people sitting at them, and one person in line in front of me. The young lady taking my order was nice, but she repeated my order incorrectly three times (a piece of banana bread, and a cafe au lait with almond milk-- nothing complicated). It took... More

A great place for lunch. The servers are really nice. The food is organic and fresh and extremely well prepared. After a long discussion with another tourist and a check with the staff, I confirm that the B and G on the restroom doors indeed stad for Boys and Girls!
