Fun, funky great food. Have the General Lee for breakfast you will not be disappointed. Can be a wait. But the give you a drink the minute you arrive so very civilized. Great attentive staff too.

We went for an early Sunday brunch and the wait was about an hour. You can enjoy drinks or coffee while waiting and the people watching is great. It was a mix of college students, locals and tourists and the wait didn’t seem that long. The menu is on a blackboard and was hard to read but the waitress was... More

Food was great!! Saw this on trip advisor and gave it a try and was not disappointed at all. Best part was the jukebox next us. :) Be sure to get the potatoes!!!

A great place for lunch. Especially loved their hash browns which are roasted and spiced with cayenne and cumin. No fried foods, just fresh and unique offerings. Cute bar and a few outside cafe tables.

I made a trip out to this restaurant after reading reviews To start I had the chicken liver pâté which was delicious I followed with the seafood stew, both were great even though A little expensive it was justified with the quality. I had beer with my meal due to the fact the wine prices were outrageous Why these restaurants... More

Nothing fancy here. Busy at lunch and two cooks upfront doing specials each day. They support the behind the scene kitchen. Quite crowded on our midweek luncheon visit....but well worth the wait. Innovative entrees and desserts, popular enough, our first choice was sold out at 1:30.

This restaurant was crazy busy. We arrived at 11am and waited almost 1 hour to sit down. They originally told us 30 min. The food however was really good. I had the flank steak with eggs, which I enjoyed. My wife had the ham and eggs. The ham was very salty and she wasn't able to eat it. Only restaurant... More

My second visit and some relief they actually take reservations now! Interesting increase in restaurants in Richmond over the last two years has caused some dilution in restaurant competition and even on Saturday evening there are empty tables! Always a treat to enter the restaurant an immediately on your right is the smallest kitchen in the chef kingdom but yet... More

Millie's is the best spot for brunch. Very unique and amazing food! You can have beverages on the patio while you wait for a table, but be careful, they add up quickly at $8 a piece. Also, during your wait be sure to check out the menu which is on a chalkboard, before you sit down. There aren't any actual... More
