“Great coffee, good food, nice people, but it's going to be a while”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2011

Fortunately it's easy to get comfortable in this beautiful building, because breakfast can be an all day affair at times. The waitstaff is very nice, but not in much of a hurry. The couple that owns the place is sweet as could be, but again, not in a hurry. Their son who works behind the counter seems to always be in a hurry, but most of it seems to be of his own making.
Don't get me wrong. We love this place. I just want you to love it too, and if you're expecting efficiency and expeditious service, you're not going to be happy. So definitely have breakfast, lunch, or a latte at the Coffee House, but do so with the expectation that this is where you're going to be for a while, and get comfortable with that idea.

“Great food lovingly prepared & served in a beautiful space”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2011

If you're in a huge hurry, then go ahead and grab a bite to eat at the gas station, but if you want to take a moment to enjoy lovingly prepared food served by really nice folks in a beautiful space, then stop in to the Cape Charles Coffee House. The scones alone are worth the trip, and the menu features great healthy salads & wraps as well as a couple of more decadent options.
Miss Roberta also makes cakes & desserts for any special occasion & they certainly don't mind if you make yourself at home for a while to read the paper or chat with the locals.
Added bonus - Free Wifi on site.
