“An Interesting Place to Stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

We always order the same thing when we are at the local in Irvington, VA: The Taylor panini and the Dirty potato chips and the Northern Neck sota. It has always been quite good for a local sandwich.

“Great lunch spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Has good sandwiches and sides, such as cole slaw. It is not very big - but it does have outdoor seating.

“Choose carefully”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Disappointing breakfast place. Stick to the baked goods. Egg mixture is microwaved and then warmed in a panini press. Lunch sandwiches looked good and the bread selection is good. Newspapers available to read.

“Casual coffee house with reasonable breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

We had breakfast here 2 mornings while staying at The Tides. The local is only a short distance so you can ride bikes.
