Quaint establishment that was started over 15 years ago. Their new location on the Riverwalk along the York River makes a charming place to visit and have a marvelous home style meal. Their desserts are fantastic.

We went to Carrot Tree for lunch during a day where it was blisteringly hot outside. I had a bottle of water with me (to avoid dehydration) and the manager at Carrot Tree wouldn't even seat me. Granted there is a sign that says "No Outside Food or Drink" but it was over 100 degrees and I promised him I... More

The Brunswick stew is awesome....sandwiches good too. This TripAdvisor soft ware to record comments SUCKS however by requiring 100 characters when you real comments may be only 50

My husband and I had a really delicious brunch here last November. It was a warm day and we sat outside in the sunshine. A few people had their dogs with them. The quiche (Virginia ham and cheese) was delicious. Also great bread pudding.

We stopped in this little eatery and were surprised to find it had limited indoor seating. Fortunately it was post lunch time and a chilly winter day so a table was available. This place features wraps and we found our lunches to be tasty and pleasantly presently. The only negative to our experience was that one of the locals brought... More

We bought a chocolate cake to take out for my nephew's birthday.the cake cost $30 but it was delicious. The store did not carry candles and they didn't write on the cake, but we were very pleased with the quality.

The food here was light, delicious, and very reasonably priced. We weren't in the mood for dessert but were tempted anyway by what was in the dessert case. Between us we had soup, salad and hummus/pita lunch and all were excellent. The hummus was home made and the vegetables were freshly sliced. The portions leave you pleasantly filled but not... More

The 13 of us opened up lunch the other day. I had the US Grant with Quinoa salad, excellent. Everyone else raved about their meal...a whole variety. We had to take home carrot cake and chocolate cake for dessert after dinner, worth every bite! A cute little restaurant on the Yorktown riverfront! Go!

This is a small, but perfectly-formed cafe! The food is wonderful and reasonably-priced. The carrot cake is exceptional. You can also have a glass of wine with your lunch without breaking the bank. Very relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. Free parking is available across the street.

Hands down best Carrot Cake EVER! My recommendation would be..... unless you hate carrot cake, definitely don't waste your time with anything else on the menu. While all items are good, it's clearly called the carrot tree for a reason.

Thank Tim H
