The place is a unique and charming coffee shop. Their hot chocolate was the ideal of what hot chocolate should be--creamy, chocolatey, and definitely not low-calorie. The peppermint mocha was very good--a little on the sweet side. Their tomato bisque was amazing; it hit the spot on a cold fall day. We took sandwiches to go and they were good, but the veggie wrap was a bit dry. So was the black bean burger. A little more sauce (perhaps a yogurt sauce) and they would have been outstanding. Make time to go hang out there and have their beverages and have great conversations and enjoy the atmosphere.

This is a great lunch stop - it's cozy and friendly, with a menu filled with interesting modern twists on comfort food classics. Packs of cards on all the tables so you can play a quick hand while waiting for your meal. A selection of coffees and spirits are also available, including local hard ciders. My only regret is that my sandwich was so good, I ate every bite and didn't have room to try any of the yummy deserts on the menu. In former days, the space used to be a hardware store. The high tin ceiling and vintage hardware shelving, filled with visually interesting vintage items, recall this history. Highly recommended!

My husband and I stopped in for lunch at the recommendation of the owners of Piney Hill B&B. I had a delicious special of the day: a turkey and brie panini with tomato on sourdough. My husband had a chicken wrap panini off of the lunch menu. Food was excellent, as was the service.

Six of us stopped for lunch at this lovely cafe on Main Street in Luray. The staff were very welcoming and our meals were excellent. The Versailles (a grilled chicken panini with tomatoes, mushrooms and honey mustard sauce) was delicious. The tomato basil soup was perfectly seasoned, and the Mandarin Orange and Pecan Salad was wonderfully fresh. It's a fantastic spot to relax and "hang out" (there is free Wi-Fi if needed). Also: There's a great selection of local beers (Starr Hill & Devil's Backbone) and the pastries are to die for.
