The location was excellent, the food was fantastic and the service was wonderful. Try the hummus appetizer and the chicken salad with bacon on a croissant.

What a pleasant surprise to serendipitously discover the Carrot Tree on the waterfront in Yorktown. I have eaten at the Williamsburg location two other times and have become a huge fan. I had the humus appetizer for a light lunch and it was scrumptious. This would be a great place to get take out from and have a picnic at... More

Loved the food. Menus was limited, but a good mix of choices. Small place, pleasant service. A great choice for a quick, light, priced-right lunch. The desserts looked awesome, we just didn't have the time.

When I visited the Carrot Tree Yorktown on previous visits, it was at the historic Cole Diggs House. The food was exceptional and the setting was perfect. When I brought a friend for lunch last fall, I was surprised to find the Carrot Tree had moved to the Riverwalk Shops area. This Carrot Tree is quaint but tiny! Very few... More

The Carrot Tree is a deli and the fare is sandwiches and drinks. Our lunch was good and the prices were reasonable. There is limited seating, either come early, or come late, because it can get crowded during the lunch period.

We were headed to the Riverwalk Restaurant which we stop at each year when we are in the area and saw this restaurant next door and decided to try it. So glad we did. Both my husband and I had amazing croissant sandwiches. The croissants were feathery light and not heavy with butter, the sandwich delicious and the side carrot... More

We often grab lunch here when visiting Yorktown Beach. It is a nice stroll up hill from the beach. The food is delicious.

There is very limited seating at this restaurant, so go early, or you can get your food to go and have a nice picnic on the beach. We enjoyed eating on the patio. They had good fresh food options. The potato salad and coleslaw were both excellent. We would eat here again.

Portions small like the tables. Left feeling hungry. Even coffee was bad. As small as the place is there were reserved signs on several tables.
