This has been my favorite place to eat in Richmond for almost 10 years, so I'm a little biased. Great food, great atmosphere, great service. Highly recommend any of the 'Blue Plate' specials and definitely try the Southern Fried Chicken (with mashed potatoes/gravy and mac-and-cheese), the best entree on the menu!

We went to the hill cafe on Tuesday the 3rd of July. Our plan was to have dinner and then walk to the nearby park to watch fireworks for the 4th. Dinner took so long that we missed the fireworks. We ordered a hummus plate appetizer and it took almost 30 minutes, though the platter was very good. The appetizer took so long that we decided to ask for our checks before our food in an attempt to see the fireworks, which we explained to the server. We still didn't get our checks until after our mean and it took 15 minutes after they set the checks down for someone to come get them and run the tab. We were four people on two checks, no excuse as far as I'm concerned. Overall the food was very good, and I will probably give them another shot, but if the service is as bad on the second go round it's not worth returning.

Had the blue plate special of meat loaf and it was wonderful! It had been grilled which added great flavor. The bread pudding dessert made me want to lick the plate! Service wast great. Only negative is the dining area is small and for those of us who love to eat and it shows difficult to sit in some locations. That won't stop me from visiting again!
