We were two couples looking for something to eat before a 9:00 pm VCU basketball game. We got there at 6:30 and still had over a half hours wait. The crowd is really into VCU though there were a few red Dayton fans also. It is unfortunate that the entrance is configured the way it is. It makes it so... More

Conveniently located near VCU Monroe campus. Dropped by for lunch on a Saturday. Place was very busy. Servers were friendly. Drinks come in small pitchers! While the nachos were good, the rest of our food was mediocre. The place has a layer of dust on all flat surfaces. The booth seats desperately need to be repaired. Bathroom floor was filthy....

I can't believe triple D gave this place good marks. It was awful. The calzone was just hideous and there was really no difference between the Stromboli and calzone. Both looked the same and both were equally horrible. Run away from this place.

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.

Wonderful local haunt. It's been there for ages and I have been going all that time .We frequently go there for breakfast. Great for those not concerned about cardiac arrest!
