Description: Here at Strawberry Street Cafe, we have been providing great food and service in an inviting, casual atmosphere since 1976. Located in the Historic Fan District, we are only about a ten minute drive from the Landmark Theatre and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. What we are best known for is our famous salad bar, which is actually situated in an old-fashioned bathtub and filled with fresh vegetables, fruits, prepared salads and homemade soups. The menu includes such specialties as Maryland Crabcakes, Pasta Jambalaya, Homemade Chicken Pot Pie, and Spinach Lasagna.

Meals.appeared miraculously quickly with healthy portions attractively presented. The... More

Very extensive menu. Enjoyed the location and the atmosphere. Came here on a recommendation. Unfortunately my main dish must have sat under a heat lamp for a while. I had the shrimp and grits. Had great potential, but so dried up. I was hungry and ate it anyway. Tough and chewy shrimp. Crab cake was good but dry. Grits were... More

A good restaurant that I unfortunately only get to dine at 1-2 a year. Located in the fan, parking can be tight if you are there at peak hours, but if you get there a little before dinner usually not a problem. Great hardwood interior, a little cramped when it is in a busy stretch, but good food. Have the... More

We had brunch there while we were visiting my sister in Richmond. My sister's boyfriend that went to school in Richmond, took us there. The food was very good and the nachos, were the best I have ever had. Good beer selection.

Main feature is the "Bathtub brunch"--items in a clawfoot bathtub. Several of us had the brunch, which had a good selection of brunch items. Items from the menu were also good-including a sweet potato and goat cheese grits! We were able to talk without being rushed, even tho there was a line.

The cafe is rather small but with a good selection of foods fro all types. The main focal point is the claw foot tub used in the buffet for salad and cold items. Price is right and good down to earth food.

If you are a "Friend of Dorothy", this is a great place to have brunch or dinner when visiting Richmond. My friends and I have gathered at this location several times for good food and conversation. Staff are very kind and helpful. Always a good visit.
