We went there for a breakfast and a dinner on a busy college weekendd at VCU. Loved it. I had the cowboy burrito for breakfast. A little quirky, but reasonably priced, and great food.

Best hand battered onion rings I've ever had! Great place with a diner feel. They have a wide variety of food, sandwiches, burgers, pastas, entrees such as meatloaf open faced sandwiches... Also desserts and milkshakes. Great service.

When visiting my grandson at college at VCU, he took me and my wife here for breakfast. What a great little gem this is with such unusual décor and a great breakfast menu. Have not had such a home cooked breakfast this good in a long time. Eggs cooked perfect and hash browns with red skin potatoes were just great.... More

Everything was stellar! Don't forget to have a milkshake - YUM! In town for business and went with a colleague to dinner, she took me to Village Cafe and it was great. The atmosphere, service, and food were all what was needed after a long day at work. Variety of items on the menu ensures anyone will find something they... More

We had lunch there last weekend. All the dishes we ordered were great. Pizza Cheese Fries was excellent! Coleslaw and Fish chips were great too! For family, friends and any gathering I recommend here.

We were driving around downtown Richmond near the VCA campus on a Sunday looking for a place for lunch when we stumbled upon the Village Cafe. Unassuming from the outside, we were beyond happily surprised by the rustic and enticing wooden booths and absolutely delicious homemade diner food. I had the chicken quesadilla and my daughter had the chocolate chip... More

This was such a fun place to eat ~ we originally went because it was one of the restaurants listed on Guy's Diners, Drive Ins & Dives ~ but let me tell you that even he didn't do it justice!! What a great HUGE menu with new things on it that I never would have imagined! The portion sizes are... More

Recommended by a friend who knows I love dining in RVA. The Village Cafe is an above average restaurant off Broad near the college. The staff was quick and attentive. The food was nice. Had the tuna club, standard wish the fries were not "factory fries" but all in all a good restaurant, and clean for a downtown establishment. Parking... More
