I took my Mom to The Tin Lizzie Cafe for lunch today. Mom had one of her favorites - Beef Manhattan - while I had a Turkey Reuben. Tasty, and nice size portions. Reasonable prices! It is nice to have such a cozy little cafe in downtown Richmond. It has brick interior walls covered with photos, framed news articles and... More

Working in town for the week and decided to check this place out. I was very happy that I did. I had a delicious turkey sandwich and my only complaint is I wish the wheat bread was a more "hearty/grainy" bread (if that makes sense). Service was good, excellent prices for everything, and the aesthetics were great too. There were... More

We each ordered from their list of daily specials: meatloaf sandwich and potato salad for Joan; chicken & noodles on mashed potatoes and a small bowl of chili for me. Joan indicated that while her food was... More

Richmond is home to the Model T Ford Club of America, so it's appropriate to eat at a restaurant called the Tin Lizzie Cafe. Many sandwiches are five dollars or less. The food is great! When my daughter was on a restricted gluten free diet, the staff was very accomodating! Lots of neat posters and decor. Worth checking out.

The Tin Lizzie Café is a cross between your grandmother's porch where you can smell the comfort food cooking in the kitchen and an eclectic museum. As you enter, Marilyn Monroe - skirt swirling-greets you. A little further back, Humphrey Bogart levels his eyes at you from beneath the brim of his hat. A New York cityscape adorns the back wall and in between all these great murals, little bits of trivia and history dot the walls of one of the oldest buildings in downtown Richmond. So, come on in. Enjoy a deli-style sandwich, the daily hot lunch special, some dessert and coffee. Meet the locals, learn a little about our community and sit a spell!
