We stumbled upon this place after leaving Maymont. It was a terrific find. My dughter and I ordered the Goat herder's daughter it was very tasty, my son ordered the buffalo 66, he too, enjoyed his sandwich. The person who took our order "Stacy" was freindly and helpful. She offered to customize my drink since many (maybe all) of their softdrinks are home made. the sides were great too. We ordered collards and kale -tasty, fruit salad - sweet but tasty; and cheesy grits - my son liked them. Several are vegetarian dishes but meat is served as well. There are vegan and gluten free options available. The bathroom was clean - which means a lot to me. This is a hip hidden gem in a local neighborhood. I recommend you try it at least once. Very informal setting with seating outside and in.

These people are serious about coffee, and they have a very fun eclectic menu for food. Specials every day. I have been several times now, and I've never been disappointed. Yum.

We ate lunch here on a warm afternoon. The outdoor seating was full but we were able to find a table inside. There is not much seating. The menu has many vegetarian and vegan options. The tempeh sandwich was outstanding. The coffee drinks were worth the trip alone. We were possibly the only ones in the place over 50, but the staff was friendly and helpful. Creative food and a fun atmosphere. This would also be a good place to get to-go food for a picnic.

My coworker took me to Lamplighter for a lunch meeting. It is a great gem nestled away in a residential neighborhood in Richmond. Its off the beaten path and is small. I had the Alan Palmer - San Pelligrino Lemonata and Iced tea - I highly recommend it! Also love their sandwiches. Great fresh homemade bread. It is worth the wait!

It is a small place with limited indoor seating, they also have outdoor seating.
