This small eatery is located in the heart of pretty downtown Staunton (with lots of one-way streets), just a short distance from the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library. There is seating on the first floor and also on the second floor but it is up a very narrow staircase, where restrooms are located. It was quite busy when we were there... More

This cafe has a beautiful, light-filled upstairs that I enjoyed. It was difficult to choose what to eat because so many of their light deli lunch options sounded delicious. What we ended up picking was a good choice and we enjoyed our lunch very much!

Sandwiches are fine if not substantial, matched with what taste like chips from a bag of Lay's. Similar sad pickle. Service is prompt and polite. Fine if you're just looking for a meal.

Walking into The Pampered Palate is like stepping into a little cafe in Europe. It is simple, but inviting. The food is always good with daily specials and a regular menu. Many of the menu items are named after local places. The soups and salads are especially appealing. You can find just the right thing if you are a vegetarian... More

Great lunch fare. Fresh food it would have been trendy food for the early 80's ( quiche and amazing baked potato assortment of toppings) now it feels comforting for a person that was a teenager in the 80's regardless everything is fresh and delicious and the wait staff bring the fun and hip-ness to this place!

I have eaten at the Pampered Palate my whole life and have never had a bad meal there. It is a great place for a good meal with friends, a business lunch or a quick lunch with your significant other. Try the quiche... it's the best!

On one of the hottest days of July, we stopped in and immediately were refreshed by the air conditioner and the magnificent smells. We seated ourselves upstairs and felt right at home. Service was fast and the food was amazing! I was surprised at the inexpensiveness for such good quality food. Will definitely be back next time we visit the... More
