Nice lunch spot

My family enjoys visiting the carrot tree for lunch. They have a wide variety of vegetarian options. The tomato soup and the veggie burger are excellent. I often enjoy their quiche and various vegetarian specials. I find the sides such as orzo salad a bit lacking in flavor. Also, the portions... read more

This is the original location (they have branched out to Jamestown Settlement and Yorktown Waterfront). Don't be turned off by what appears to be an old motel. Inside you are in for a treat. Many luncheon options, including lots of themed sandwiches (all have a good story). The salads are great too (love the red bliss potato salad). But save... More

One of my favorite eateries in Williamsburg! The food is always fresh and made to order. The potato salad is my absolute favorite and the desserts are to die for! Parking can be a little bit tricky at times.

Friends in Williamsburg have always spoken very highly of this place, but something always came up that kept us from going. They had their daughter's wedding cake made there and I said, we've got to go next time. We just went for dessert and got the carrot cake but the Ham Biscuits looked awesome and the lunch entree's looked great!... More

Several times I have purchased quarts of gazpacho, tomato basil, beef barley, and clam chowder soups and many of their desserts to take home but today we decided to stop for lunch after visiting Jamestown Settlement. Parking is tight since it is small and the restaurant has just a few tables. We both had the Lady Martha Special which was... More

This is an off the beaten path great find. Each of the four in our party tried something different and were pleased with their choices. I had the quiche of the day-delicious filling and flakey crust. I was told the Brunswick stew was tasty- but no one shared with me. The desserts were amazing, with carrot cake our favorite. Great... More

We were one our way to historic Jamestown and wants a light lunch, someplace other then a chain restaurant. We located the Carrot Tree on-line and were wonderfully surprised. The lunch meals were light and delicious. My bowl of Brunswick Stew, a regional favorite, and two small biscuits with ham were a perfect lunch. Especially, when topped off with a... More

My husband and I drove past this restaurant in what apparently was an old motel for years before we dined in their (former) Yorktown location. What delicious food!! This year, on a one-week trip to Williamsburg, we had lunch 3 times and breakfast twice. The exterior building may look seedy--like it was built in 1782--but the interior is bright, decorated...
