When you think of a delicious Cafe in Powhatan, VA., you think of Cafe at Maidens. The atmosphere is delightful, considering it’s located inside an old convenience store (gas station). The menu is vast, the ingredients are fresh and the people always offer service with...a smile. Their sandwiches they prepare are right up there with something you might find in the heart of NYC. Prepared fresh and fast for an uncomplicated lunch experience.More

The owners are the greatest. Food is excellent! This is an old fashioned style place where you get food individually prepared for you and it hand crafted by the owners.

A friend and I had lunch here. It small and cozy in what used to be a gas station. It was a great day to be out in country air with a nice huge salad, soup and dessert. The family owned establishment is very friendly...and accommodating. I would definitely come back again.More

Only open 6 am to 2:30 pm, but food is creative home cookin'. Environment is very simple...a 'recycled' old service station, and in a quiet rural setting off 'the beaten path'. Worth your time to wander down a small country road not far from I-64

Drove ten miles off our route to eat breakfast here since it got such good reviews. We walked in at 10:55 am and she said “we stopped serving breakfast at 11 am. Clearly, she can’t tell time.

What a surprise to find such a cute little old gas station, that became a delicious joint with really interesting sandwich combinations. You'd never think looking at the place it could be so tasty, out in the middle of the woods. Once again, Trip Advisor...solves our lunch need, with a far better lunch than we were afraid we'd have to settle for.More
