ins pite of its name, this little daytime bistro caters not only to locals, but also to visitors staying at the nearby Tides Inn and Hope and Glory Inn. Great sandwich combos served on a variety of breads, including wraps and paninis, small but effective wine and beer selection and a nice selection of crafted coffees.

It was odd to find very unfriendly staff in the middle of one of the friendliest tourist towns in Virginia. The staff barely spoke, made no eye contact and couldn't get us out of the place fast enough. Next time I'll wait til I'm back in town to get my coffee. It wasn't worth it.

We always order the same thing when we are at the local in Irvington, VA: The Taylor panini and the Dirty potato chips and the Northern Neck sota. It has always been quite good for a local sandwich.

Has good sandwiches and sides, such as cole slaw. It is not very big - but it does have outdoor seating.

I sat outside in the afternoon and was inundated with flies. Kinda gross. The selection is good. they seem to close early though.
