Growing up in The Hampton Roads area back in the 70's & 80's was an exciting time for live music. One of the places to see old timers, like Johnny Winters, or up and comers, like Bruce Hornsby, was the hole in the wall club called The Jewish Mother. Located on Atlantic Ave, it was a place where one would stop for breakfast after partying all night at the Ocean Front. It was characterized by a small stage and the ability to use crayons to write on the walls, with management's blessing. It reminded me of a 50's style jazz club. But, thanks to the City of Virginia Beach, the old venue has been moved to a new spot close to First Colonial Ave & Virginia Beach Blvd.
If you want to hear great live music, "Mother" is still the place to go. It's a much larger place, with a patio for a nice cigar at night. The delivery menu is OK, but for delivering food, RT 58 is still the place to go. The breakfast is still great (my favorite is the Miriam's Miracle). The service is spotty and the seating arrangements are a mystery. This is a much larger venue to the old place, but the hostess squeezes patrons together in an otherwise empty establishment.
If you want live music and breakfast, The Jewish Mother is great, but for anything else, there are better options in Virginia Beach.
