“Another really good breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

Basic independent coffee shop place serving breakfast and lunch. Specials every day but a longer list on weekends. They know how to baste eggs but don't poach. Excellent home-made pork sausage, good from-scratch biscuits, nice thick-cut bacon and occasionally a Virginia ham special. Why would anyone do fast food when they can eat here?

“Don't Get It”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

Sorry, I just don't get the rave reviews, including some from my friends. I've eaten here about 4 times. My number one criterion is food quality, not the fact that you get a home spun feeling (which is fine) or friendly staff. If you think a gourmet breakfast is fried eggs and home fries with white toast, then this may be the place for you. When I ordered an omelet with several ingredients SOFT, it came out overcooked, including the ingredients. The coffee (is that important to anyone?) was average. It definitely does have a family friendly locally owned atmosphere. OK....tell ya what, I'll try it again today and report back (are updates allowed?)

“Best Breakfast in Herndon/Reston”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

I have been taking my family and friends to Virginia Kitchen for over 20 years. Now, when I have visitors, they insist on dining there. The food is excellent and is the best value for dollar I have found. The staff makes you feel like family and the Owner still seats you and serves coffee. He always asks me how my family is doing and is genuinly interested in the answer. It is the kind of restaurant you usually only read about. Herndon residence can actually experience it.

“Best Breakfast inTown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

The combination we all look for. Great food, fair prices and friendly service. Wonderful place to take friends or family. My family wants to go here every time they visit. I have been dining here for over 20 years and the worst meal I ever had was grest.

“Nothing Special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

Clean, well organized for a breakfast rush, friendly staff, easy parking.
But the food is pretty ordinary. My El Paso omelet was OK but the chile topping was watery and not flavorful at all. The potato side was kind of under-done; not at all crispy and very "oily". Aside from the name and history, this was average at best.
