Very expensive simple food in a very I decorated country atmosphere. We had a trainee waitress and it was obvious. Agree little old lady place to meet.

My husband bought me a small Carrot Cake for Valentines Day because I don't eat candy.The cake was absolutely beautiful however the icing on the cake was as thick as the cake which was a little dissapointing.The icing was on so thick overpowered the cake.The...taste of the acutal carrot cake was really good after I scrapped off about two thirds off the icing which really did not leave much cake at all.More

We ate Sunday Brunch at Carrot Tree and all of the family member's loved the service as well as the food. We left full with leftovers. Food was fresh as well as tasty. Also, loved choices from the bakery.

When you think you have had enough breakfast and Sunday brunch meals at the numerous breakfast shops in the Williamsburg area, try Carrot tree kitchen instead. You will not be disappointed. I ordered the breakfast sandwich (croissant with sausage and egg) with cheese grits. The...sandwich did not leave a greasy after taste which I have experienced in other like sandwiches in other restaurants. Carrot Tree, in my opinion is the healthy breakfast alternative.More

Went to carrot tree for the first time for lunch. Very friendly staff. Menu had alot of variety. Spinach wrap with tuna was very fresh. Had to take 1/2 home. Our group of 11 all tried something different. The desserts are to die for. Make...sure you stop at bakery on the way out.More

We enjoyed both the service and food at lunchtime. Took several pastries for the airplane ride home and enjoyed every bite.

This is certainly an enjoyable review to write. We were looking for your standard fast food fare when I pulled into this non-assuming strip mall like location. I simply uttered, “whatever we find is what we are going to eat”. Enter Carrot Tree! We were...greeted by a smiling and jovial hostess on this Black Friday morning and I should’ve known then how wonderful this experience would be. My daughters both found something on the menu that was appealing! The one ordered plain crepe and the other a wonderful sandwich that taste just as good as it looked. The food was fresh and prepared with obvious intentional care. It far exceeded my expectations and was readable priced. Of course we tried carrot cake and it too was phenomenal! We are going to visit again today and I will see if I can savor the food long enough to take some pictures.More

Chickhominy House 1 block up the street, but biscuits and ham totally different. Carrot Tree bakes theirs brown with lots of butter, while CH serves theirs plain more like Williamsburg historic area. My wife had a spinach salad with chicken salad which was good. SPECIAL...MENTION, best Brunswick Stew in Williamsburg bar none! Didn't have room for dessert, but the people beside us had their renown carrot combination cake and they said it was fantastic.More

My local friends took me to lunch here; it was lovely. The menu has a nice variety of options, from a huge club sandwich to soup, salad, quiche, and even crepes, to the tasty veggie burger I chose. The portions were so generous that we...didn't have room for their famous desserts. The restaurant is clean, lots of light, and the tables are well spaced, not crowded; you can hold a conversation during the meal.More

The Carrot Tree offered high tea in afternoons earlier this year. They were popular and reservations were necessary. I would suggest, as others have, that you call, discuss possible selections and reserve, if necessary.
