My wife and I and another couple were on a trip to James Monroe's house, Ashlawn/Highland. We had passed up eating lunch earlier at Montpelier because our B and B served a great breakfast and we were still pretty full. It could've been a problem, because as we got closer to our tour there were less spots available to eat,... More

Serves tasty in-house prepared sandwiches and lunch fare in an old converted gas station located on Rte 53, known by locals as 'the back way' to Monticello.

Stopped here for lunch after visiting Monticello. Got a couple of great sandwiches and was able to get gluten free bread and a fantastic gluten free cookie. They have not only gluten free options but also, vegetarian options. We had wanted to get our sandwiches to go and eat them at a winery close by but unfortunately the day we... More

I could've done without the snobby lady with short hair at the counter saying in a snappy way "Everyone loves my grilled cheese" when I asked her what cheese it's made with. Apparently, it's top secret. Look lady, not trying to steal your secret recipe, I swear. But 12 y/o kids do not have the same acquired taste buds as... More

In this converted gas station you are definitely going to find a sandwich to suit your tastes. We stopped here today and my husband had a chicken salad sandwich and I had the vegan tofu sandwich. Both sandwiches were delicious, filling and reasonably priced. You will get quick service with smile. This is a gem of a place!

Unique menu with daily specials. A real artisan place with fresh ingredients. Friendly and fast. Chicken salad sandwich was fabulous with grapes and apple. Will be back.

Our last time we came was about 2 years ago. They have fresh, seasonal and innovative sandwich offerings that are executed very well. Service is prompt and friendly - she makes an effort to remember your name. It's a great choice for eating before/while wine tasting and they have specials that have food combinations that are not obvious but very... More

I'm not sure how this got the reviews it did. Food was not expensive but was nothing to draw you back for. Got a 3 cheese grilled cheese sandwhich on I'm not sure what kind of bread and what was supposed to be gourmet Ginger Ale. All of it was very plain and tasteless edible but not a pleasurable meal...

This casual sandwich shop is located in an old gas station, just yards from the entrance to Jefferson Winery. It is the hipster version of fast casual, as you order at the register and have the food delivered to your table. The interior is small with only a few tables and chairs. More seating is available outside. I chose an... More
