Read and re-read the menu 4-5 times before I just went with the burger. Trust me, it was not because I was not hungry... The burger arrived dry with a hard crust, almost burnt. The rest of the meal was meeeeh. I do recommend the bakery and desserts, since the Cowboy Cookie was the saving grace to my lunch experience.... More

The Carrot Tree is a local favorite. This is the newest of their locations. The restaurant is light and airy. Service was friendly and attentive. They are known for their ham biscuits. Try they Croque Madam on the breakfast menu…and grab a carrot cake cupcake to go. My only complaint is that their coffee is just ok…it tastes like ubiquitous... More

I have been a Carrot Tree fan since we moved to the Burg 11 years. What is not to like and admire...especially since they moved to their new venue? Friends treated me for a birthday lunch, and right off the bat, we were blown away when we saw the line of people out the door and bakery patrons three-deep at... More

The Smithfield served with outstanding dill potato salad, the only way to go. The sandwich roll is soft and flavorful, the ham salty, the tomato fresh, and the lettuce crisp. A great lunch that is satisfying and filling.

The Carrot Tree has been a popular destination in Williamsburg for over 20 years. The restaurant has recently moved to a new location, in the Colony Square Shops on Jamestown Road. Although the new location is not as quaint as the old one (in a former old motel, they still serve the same great food, and the desserts (especially the... More

Same great food and desserts in a new location. Not nearly the character of the old place, but spectacular fare is what you go for and Carrot Tree has it!

The first time I visited, the place was packed. I didn't have to wait, but the second and third times, I had to wait for nearly an hour to get into this place for lunch. There were at least 40 people waiting. I was lucky. Got there at 10 to 12 and got seated 50 minutes later. The place opened... More

This is a great spot to meet friends for lunch. Items on the large menu are moderately priced, and there is the option of taking home a dessert as well. Their carrot cake is superb. Carrot Tree also has numerous baked items for in house, home, or special occasions.

Debi cooks all her food from scratch. Her desserts are too die for, so be sure to save room for dessert. If you don't have room, just order dessert. There is a bakery in the store front with lots of good things to take home. The Carrot Tree is known locally for the desserts and especially the carrot cake. Yes,... More
