Our hosts at the Holladay House B&B recommended The Light Well to us and we ate lunch there over the weekend. The waitress recommended the Cuban sandwich to my husband, saying it was "to die for." My hubby says she wasn't lying. The Cuban sandwich is sliced roasted pork loin, caramelized red onion, smoked Gouda cheese, and plum chutney aioli on toasted sourdough bread. I had the chicken salad platter and was pleased that the chicken salad didn't have too much sauce (extra calories). Everything was perfect and tasty!

We enjoyed Saturday brunch here today. The food was excellent, the service very attentive and friendly. Nice casual, hip (in a small-town way) atmosphere. I'm so glad my husband will soon be working in Orange and we will have excuses to go there again.

We had a small family reunion recently with four different families, eight people ranging from 21 to 72. We picked this restaurant because of its varied and appealing menu, but were amazed at the wonderfully high quality of the food at an extremely reasonable price. Vegetarians and meat-eaters all went away happy, and this restaurant visit was one of the highlights of our reunion.

We wanted to go somewhere close for drinks, this fit the bill. Nice live music. Food was salty, service was slow, but we had a good time. Worth going to for some beers and low prices.

Thanks to the Orange Visitors' Center we were directed to The Light Well for lunch (best Cuban pork sandwich ever!). Great service, terrific food (nice, varied menu) and fantastic VA wines (among others). We really enjoyed it, what a treat and definitely worth it.
