We enjoyed a nice breakfast here during UVA parent's weekend. It was a busy place but we were still seated right away. Good food and very nice service - we would definitely go back.

Staff is great, place is usually crowded but they always seem to find you a seat. Food is good Greek diner food. Onion rings are the best. You wont go away hungry. Always stop in here when we are in Charlottesville

Tip Top is one of the best local spots to eat. Greek diner with a wide variety of menu choices. Usually is a wait for a table, but rarely over 5-10 minutes and the food is well with the wait. Affordable and large portions ensure...More
