I came very early at 7:30am on a warm summer Thursday. Unlike other reviewers I had no problems getting in. I was seated immediately and attended to consistently. This diner is in a complex along with five or six other businesses, each has its own glass facade. The facade gives a more modern air than what the interior portrays. The... More

The Bluegrass is the place for breakfast in Charlottesville. Family-owned and operated, it has served great breakfasts long enough to become an institution known to locals, UVA alumni and tourists. The menu serves traditional dishes along with some specials that are unique to Bluegrass, but only when you start eating do quality and creativity combine to assure the fact that... More

This place is a cute little hole in the wall. They serve only breakfast and brunch. However, the items on the menu are very unique, interesting, and those we tried extremely good. They take cash and check only.

So we tried to go here two different times and ditched because there was a very long wait. Eventually, we toughed it out and waited about 45 minutes for a table. And it is worth it. Of course, I was starving by the time I sat down, so you could have fed me cardboard topped with sawdust and if you... More

Large menu, the food is so much better that a lot of breakfast places I've eaten at and I was visiting Charlottesville and did not want to eat breakfast at the hotel so tried this place. Wish it was bigger place as it fills up fast!!

We were visiting the area and decided to try The Bluegrass Grill & Bakery. It was excellent. We did get the last available large table. There was a line forming, but no one left. It was a cold and damp day, but they waited outside! The food was terrific. They have the best home fries. I've never liked restaurant potatoes,... More

Fantastic breakfast! Funky chicken and salmon benedict were amazing. Large portions, very tasty and...good coffee. Service attentive and we didn't have to wait--an added bonus.

My wife and I frequent Bluegrass often for breakfast (and occasionally lunch). My breakfast staple is corned beef hash and it's the best I've ever had. All homemade, nothing out of a can or jar. The biscuits are homemade, hot and deliciously fluffy. Their pancakes are excellent, as are omelets. It's a small venue and very popular, particularly on weekends,... More

We found this place today because we are working in the area and it was so good! It's real small, only about 10 tables maybe but the service was fast so I'm sure they get through people quickly. Seat yourself, large variety of breakfast items and some stuff that is pretty unique. It was a fun atmosphere. We will define... More

Tons of selection, food was good, realizing its 2016 and the restaurant you're eating in only accepts cash...terrible. In their defense there was a tiny sign on the door but we didn't even notice it when we went in. As we were eating we kept seeing all the diners leave and then come back...they were making the block and a... More
