    Not fancy food, but good food. We enjoyed the vibe on a Sunday afternoon in November.

    Warm, filling and flavorful. My husband was a very happy man after each course including delicious apple pie a la mode.

    Service was friendly and attentive.

    I cannot speak for their other options, but the breakfast sandwich on a biscuit I had with hash browns was putrid. Hash browns are pitiful and the sandwich was soggy.

    Honestly it’s been a while since I dined here. Cooks & menus come & go. It’s always been a popular hangout especially with a certain crowd..I suspect it will be open as long as the current owners desire. Note though-
    It’s not the Original “Village Cafe”. That was across the street on the other corner. Legends dined there, now juz wanna -be’s.

    This is certainly a very popular place, but the food was pretty mediocre, by and large. Generous portion sizes, and prompt, helpful service, but (and I came with a reasonably large group, so there were lots of dishes tried) despite coming hungry for a late lunch, no one was particularly enthusiastic about their food.

    Among our group, we ordered: a calzone, a salad, the blt, the taco salad, a burrito, a chicken sandwich, French toast, cream chipped beef, chopped steak (my order), and a triple stack of chocolate chip pancakes for my kids. We had sides of fried potatoes, mashed potatoes, fries, and broccoli. The fries were good, and I enjoyed my mashed potatoes. The broccoli was steamed, but not mushy and was green and fresh looking, standard.

    And that’s about how most people felt – the food was okay. It wasn’t bad enough to complain about, but not good enough to come back for. Everyone asked me if my “chopped steak” order was a meatloaf. I may have just misunderstood what I was ordering, but what came out was definitely something like a Salisbury steak, like a minced steak patty. It was ok. Not the worst I’d had, but definitely not something I’d get again. My kids each had one pancake and called it quits. This is lunch at 2pm when they normally eat at noon, having not had much to eat before this. Certainly not the most glowing review of the food.

    It’s mostly small booth seating (for 4 adults, max), with a corner in the back that we (11 adults, 2 kids in laps) squeezed into. They were quite accomodating, and we had women who were willing to sit close to each other, but I would not really recommend it for large groups. They did have two other areas that were not open for dining when we were here that may accomodate a group, but I would call ahead. They do have a complete party seating policy, just to be aware.

    This seems like a local hangout spot, and it has character. Would I go out of my way to eat here? No. But if you’re a student or resident in the area wanting American food near campus, this is an option.

    Difficult to find parking
    Parking options
    Free street parking, Paid street parking
    Parking
    Depending on the day and time you come, street parking will be free or pay to park. There’s a good amount of street for parking, but this are lots of restaurants in the area, so it is generally pretty difficult to find parking nearby, all the more so at normal dining hours.
    Kid-friendliness
    This is an ok spot for kids. There was not a separate kids menu (or we were not given one). The restaurant is pretty narrow and tight, so kids who are antsy and don’t like to sit still don’t have much room to get out any wiggles. They do have a changing station in the women’s bathroom.

    Vegan options are pretty lacking unless you change the menu items a bunch. Good vegetarian options. Overall though the service was great and it’s a good atmosphere to go with your family.

    Well, it was busy but not so busy that we should expect to be forgotten about. Our server was working hard but not often, if at all, with us. It took forever to get refills. It took forever to get our credit card back. I saw our server take a shot at the bar and goof off with the one waitress. Maybe he was trying to win her affection, I don’t know. He was very friendly when he did actually come around, at least.
    The fried cheese was excellent. Like perfectly made. The poutine was…… interesting. Not bad, but not exactly what we expected. Quesadilla was mid.
    It was a cool looking place and the bathrooms were clean. So that’s a plus.

    I stepped into this cozy bar/restaurant after seeing Frozen, a Broadway show, at Altria Theater. I walked in just as they were turning over the kitchen closed sign. Really glad I was able to get in…I had the chicken cheese steak and green beans as my side. Oh my the grean beans were AMAZING nice southern twist and the sandwich bread melted in your mouth. My bar server was great.. erybgood cosmo..sorry I didn’t get her name. Super friendly place with fabulous prices. You must stop by !!!

    I have an 8am class everyday so I always walk past this place on my way to and from class each morning. Naturally as a college student, I was craving a burger and fries at 9 in the morning.

    I walked in and ordered a hot chocolate, they gave it to me in the cutest mug with whip cream on top. and I got the burger and fries to go.

    The fries are straight, but thicker than shoestring. similar to wendys or burger king size. they were battered which was SOOOO yummy.

    I asked for a bacon and cheddar burger, cooked medium (which it was not, but tbh I did not really care that much) and it was super yummy as well. the buns were buttered and toasted and it was really big actually. the tomato and lettuce were very fresh and it was overall just a really positive experience!

    It is so cute in there, it gives such a “hometown” vibe. Like the kind you would see on tv with so many things on the walls!

    Cozy diner like restaurant with an extensive menu full of comfort food. Service was pleasant, food was served hot and quick.

    The poutine was tasty, with mozzarella cheese replacing cheese curds and diced ham slices added. The Ranch dressing, served chilled and on the side, hit especially well, best ranch I have had in a while.

    The spaghetti with the chicken Parm was a little mushy and not Al dented, but that’s what you should expect from a dinner serving comfort food.

    The green beans that accompanied my son’s chicken fried steak seemed to come from a can. But my son LOVED them green beans.

    The portions were very generous making this place a great value. No wonder it seemed to be doing well in this college campus location.

    We were visiting Richmond and looking for places that had vegan options. We walked in and were barely recognized. The person who seated us at a dirty table did not speak. He just did a follow me gesture and sat us there. Our server arrived and asked for our drinks. We told the person but I then shared that I had a question. The server literally informed me that she had a million other things to do and would be back.

    Hey, I completely understand “We’re understaffed. I’ll be right back” or whatever the case may be. But not being acknowledged at the door, a dirty table, and a server who told us she had a million other things to do equaled us getting up and leaving to never return again. I would not recommend this place due to terrible customer service.

    If you’re looking for pretty good cheap bites around VCU campus, this is the spot. They have s lot of things ranging from $8-$14 in price for full meals, which is pretty crazy now a days. The food is nothing fancy, but they have s few good things on the menu, and a pretty lengthy choice of things. The servers can be a little slow when they get busy, but that makes sense.

    One of the nastiest places I’ve eaten in a long time, I’d been here years ago and it was okay overall. Not special, not the worst so I thought another shot would be worth it. Our server had an attitude immediately approaching our table and was very quick, cut and dry to get our order as well as collect the bill at the end. I ordered a chicken quesadilla which was almost $13. It was a tortilla completely full of grease saturated onions and soggy tomatoes, barely any cheese and next to no chicken. No flavor at all and it was too heavy and saturated to hold. My boyfriend waited to order after I did and after trying mine was glad he didn’t order anything. Waste of money to say the least. Will never return 👎🏼

    Overall 4.35.
    Nice little place in downtown Richmond. Went during breakfast hours to find their full menu is available all day, which is a huge plus for me. Untimely, I decided on breakfast as that is what I was craving. The restaurant was busy but still managed to sit us rather quickly. I ordered an egg white omelette with ham, cheddar cheese and bacon, and a side of hash browns, toast, and crispy bacon. The side of bacon was cooked to order and tasted just the way I like it. Crunchy, flavorful and crispy. The omelette was packed with ham chopped in small squares, and filled with full slices of crispy bacon! The cheddar cheese was not as prominent as the other ingredients. Nonetheless, it was an enjoyable omelette and met my personal preference expectations. The hash browns were more like home style potatoes then hash browns, and tasted ok but lacked any real flavor or seasoning. The toast was also ok. One of the slices was slightly burnt but didn’t affect the taste too much. To wash it all down I ordered a large chocolate milk that tasted like actually chocolate milk, not NesQuick. The atmosphere is nice. All customers seemed to be engaged in table conversations of their own, allowing you to speak freely without other people easing their way into your conversation. Waiters and waitresses were attentive but not overly. Recommend to others. Repeat customer.

    One of my favorites. It’s been awhile since we had the opportunity to eat here, but the food is as good as it has always been.
    My wife had a Reuben Sandwich, I opted for something a little different, ordering a Cowboy Burrito from the “Specials” menu. It was packed with flavor and the portion was definitely more than enough.

    My friend and I went to grab dinner before a show at the Altria Theater. Though we were in a rush to make it on time to our show we enjoyed our experience and plan to go again. Our server was amazing and accommodated us accordingly because she noticed we were in a rush and brought us the check and to-go boxes without us asking. The food was surprisingly really good! We even enjoyed it the next day.

    Great place if you’re looking for affordable food and a lot of it. their portions are huge but its nice cuz then you get leftovers. really good milkshakes as well. Also incredibly fast service always and the waiters are always super chill and cool. Also the place is small and can get busy so you might not be able to get in if its a weekend and its late at night (I feel like this place is busiest at like 10pm) but its never rly busy during the day. Pretty cool interior too!

    Overall good experience. There’s a VCU parking garage roughly 100 feet away. I’m not sure if they let others besides students and faculty park during the week, but you’re allowed to park on the weekend. This is a huge plus considering what a pain it can be to park in Richmond.

    Considering its location next to VCU, it should come as no surprise that it has a college bar vibe to it, but it’s still family friendly. We seated ourselves right away. I ordered an egg and cheese sandwich with a side of home fries. I liked it, but I would have preferred the home fries had been cooked a little longer, as they were still a bit firm in the middle. My son got the Boston Cream churros, and they were absolutely delicious. My wife would have liked her pancakes a little fluffier, but she sill liked them. For all three of us, the bill came to about $36 not including the tip. The service was quick and our waitress was friendly.

    We will definitely go back.

    This place has sharply declined lately. They have a group of 70+ derelicts who sit at the bar who try to pick fights and ruin your dinner. They think it’s funny because no one is going to punch out a 75-year old derelict. They get in your face and spoil your dinner and the Village’s staff do nothing to control them.

    If you go here, get a booth. Do not sit at the bar, because you will have some 75-year old drunk trying to pick a fight with you.

    We had a take-out order. The server on the phone was friendly and helpful.

    We had the fish and chips and country-fried steak. The fish could have used seasoning, the tartar sauce helped provide flavor. The fries were standard. The country-fried steak was good, bonus points for the caramelized onions in top. Sides: the mashed potatoes were flavored nicely, the Mac and cheese was bland, but in a silky sauce that rivaled fine dining options.

    Hot tip: if you are ordering pick up, just call ten minutes ahead, they are busy during meal times and run a ticket as soon as it is ordered (so I could not schedule a future time to pick up).

Potatoes were potatoes lol nothing special but they tasted great. Bread was soft. I love how the soda glasses are so big.

    Gone here so many times, one server knows drink orders by memory 😁 Busy spot during basketball season if game night. Otherwise, seated pretty quick. Limited street parking, drive around and eventually a spot opens up. Not facility fault but folks ignore handicap parking sign right out front. Like to sit and look outside when waiting for the order. Two Tvs near bar area. Sometimes inside too cold and look for seat without ceiling fan. Would like to see new menu items especially sides. Definitely need more sides or get rid of some sides to add different. Prices reasonable.

    I gave this place multiple chances and got disappointed every single time. Got different meals every time. Breakfast and lunch menus. I just don’t understand why they have good reviews. My fried chicken sandwich was dry as hell. And seems like the chicken is just a frozen piece of chicken bought from Walmart and heated. Their steak and breakfast bowl also gave me stomach problems and was not really good. Do not recommend at all!

    A great diner experience – cool, classic ambience with great food. No frills, just quality stuff. Even on a Sunday morning, the service is fast enough that the wait never feels too long. Great breakfast and lunch spot.

    Hard to find a spot like this, very cozy place. Great food for a lower budget. This is my go-to date spot, spot to take my out of town friends, definitely my go-to for anything you can think of!
    A lot of items are meat or cheese based, but you can definitely find vegan options!
    I’ve never had a bad experience, small changes or items can be forgotten sometimes, we’re only human, but nobody that works here is ever mean about it.
    All the staff is generally kind- this is the best diner vibe you can get in Richmond.

    RVA landmark. Been coming here since it was on the other side of the street in the early 90s. Haven’t been here in over 5 years, but as soon as I sat down I was recognized by the old heads at the bar. They’ve done some redecorating since I was last here, old pictures are gone, but after 20 years I guess it’s time to make some new pictures.

    There’s a reason this place has been on TV – it’s a cozy little hole in the wall diner with a great atmosphere, really good food, and affordable pricing. They serve breakfast all day, their strombolis and calzones are really good, and they have a happy hour that makes the already great prices even better. There’s something for almost everyone here, so well worth a visit when you’ve got the munchies or just want a place to hang out with friends or family.

    Dined in during the breakfast peak, but the wait time wasn’t bad at all to be seated! Food came our super quick, and was very hot and made exactly to order. Can’t beat the prices either! Only downsides were the service from our waitress (seemed disinterested), and the wait for our drinks (came out after the food).

    Serving water in huge pitchers was the best thing about the restaurant. Tuna salad croissant was amazing, the filling was juicy, flavory and not so cold, and the croissant was so flaky and buttery. It melted so well. And they serve eggnog milkshake throughout the year, which is awesome. I’m gonna come here again, no doubt.

    Alright.. My son and I visited the Village Café today, and I only gave them one star because of the service; otherwise, they would have received a “0” rating from me. Everything about the food lacked taste and flavor. When my son tried the fried apples, he said they were “hard, dry, and lacking in flavor.” I agreed with him. Sadly, this restaurant served me an omelet that was both undercooked and lacking in seasoning, which was a disappointment. I would not recommend this establishment in any way.

    I had high hopes for this place after hearing so many great things but, the customer service here is so awful. Ate here with a group of friends yesterday and one of us in our party had ordered a sandwich that wasn’t as expected. We asked nicely if there was anyway that the plate could be exchanged for something else and instead of satisfying an unhappy customer we were told by our waitress that she first needed to speak to someone (presumably her manager). She then returned to the table within a minute or two and told us:

    “If nothing is wrong with the food then we can’t give you a refund or exchange it for anything and you still have to pay for it, Sorry.”

    At that point asking to speak to a manager was pointless because I personally wouldn’t want angry bitter people making my food for me but, really guys? As much business as this place gets you would have thought that they could afford to exchange one plate for something that someone would have rather enjoyed. Not to mention it was our first time eating there. Needless to say I personally won’t be back as it seems apparent that they don’t care.

    Three of us showed up for a little bit later lunch. After a small wait for a table to become available, we were seated with a smile. The Village Cafe has a very large menu. It took some time to decide what to get. I ordered the chicken salad club sandwich. It was very large. I finished about 3/4 of it before having to give up. The chicken salad was pretty good. Perhaps I tasted a bit of tarragon in the mix?
    Anyway overall it was a great lunch with family.

    The eggs where ice cold. The breakfast potatoes where called hash browns on the menu. They were not hash browns. They where large potato chunks with big pieces of onions. If they tasted good it wouldn’t be an issue. They had a wierd chemical taste to them. My coffee mug had crusty stuff on the rim. My knife had caked-on food on it. The server was nice. I just ate my toast and a piece of really poor quality sausage, paid and left, vowing never to return!

Of course I haven’t tried everything on the menu but I did have the spaghetti and meatballs which were mediocre at best. My husband likes it though. All over a great breakfast and brunch spot.

Our server was kind and polite even tho we took 3 times to get our order. He got our order correctly, at a busy hour (6pm). And didn’t mess it up at all. Thank you MARK! Great server 🙂 didn’t make us feel like we were a nuisance during rush hour 🙂 give this man a raise

    It’s very reasonable with the prices along with the portion of food you get. A nice breakfast spot or lunch/ brunch date. Great selection of Beers. I definitely recommend. Service was A+

    Great Cafe near VCU Monroe Park campus. Excellent portions, fast service and friendly staff. Drinks came out in mini pitchers so refills are practically not needed. Menu selection is huge and something for everyone. A must eat place when visiting the area.
    We got the French Toast with hash browns and the Fried Rockfish Po Boy. It did not disappoint.

    It was pretty good food. I had steak and eggs. Asked for medium rare. The steak was thin, so I was impressed that it came out that way and not over cooked. Nice. Coffee was so so nothing to brag about. I asked for more creamer and never got it, so I went to another table and got the creamers from the basket. It wasn’t super busy at the time I got there. It was fine. Could use a little more smiles in the staff to make it seem like we are welcomed.

The vibe inside is colorful, cozy, and energetic. I was particularly impressed by the service. Our server, Michael, was warm, knowledgeable, accurate, and swift. Literally perfect service.

  228. Stephanie Smith 2022/06

    Visited from out of town for a show at the Altria. Stopped here for dinner before the show. There were a lot of menu options we wanted to try but I settled for chicken parm & spaghetti and my daughter got nachos. Both items were delicious and if we ever come back we will eat here again and try other items as well. The drinks come in mini pitchers and for the size of the meals, the prices are definitely on the lower end. Highly recommend. A small space so seating could fill up quickly.

    If it wasn’t for my just passing through Richmond, I’d have tried their lunch and dinner options as well.

    As a VCU student, I have continued to go to this place for events. The food is good but the service is so horrid that it has stopped me from going. For example, we had a group of 12 people and we said we are ready to order and our server said that she was not ready and stormed off. Additionally, I brought my brother for a celebration because he loves the pancakes here. We did not receive service for 30 minutes and when we did the service was extremely unwelcoming. I am extremely dissatisfied with the service here and the food is not worth the amount of slander one will receive from the staff.

  254. V G 2022/03

    It’s a wonderful place/ happening place. We ordered chicken Parmesan spaghetti and village stromboli which tastes delicious. Coming to milkshakes they are awesome and there are 2 assona on top of chocolate and vanilla where we have ordered vanilla egg nog, chocolate caramel. Overall the ambiance, interaction with waiter and the taste is awesome.
    I will definitely visit the place second time and will try different dishes😋.

    Forgot the name of this place because it was recommended to me and saw that person today to ask… they finally told me today! I haven’t been here in 3 years, but I think about this place all the time. It was a great atmosphere, amazing service, fantastic food, and the best milkshakes we had ever had in our life! Highly recommend whether you are traveling or local.

    Place was packed so was assuming the food would be awesome! Got the Village breakfast special & clearly saw the sausage wasn’t cooked just from appearance, then I cut it open to find that it was still pink. Once I informed someone of the situation I removed it from my plate to find that there was a small hair on my plate too. Sitting at the bar you can clearly see the kitchen staff wears no hair nets etc. Decided to have the whole plate sent back only to find out they only removed a 6% amount from the bill labeled as guest dissatisfaction. Personally I feel they should’ve removed the whole charge. Will not be returning.

    Very nice place for casual dining. Lots of seating available/seat-yourself. The servers are very kind and attentive. The kitchen is fast, and it is good quality food in large portions for an amazing price. I can get a breakfast for 2 for $8. Diverse menu and bar is opened until 11pm/12am. Very popular spot.

    I love coming here often for solo lunch on my days off and getting breakfast food. I’d recommend the big apatite, creamed chip beef, or the Italian baked sub. Cheap beer and food so it meets expectations with a nice atmosphere.

  266. Caleb Hennon 2022/02

    Wanted to love it, but it was a pretty lackluster experience.

    The temperature inside was the first negative. It was very very cold. So much so that we actually went to our car halfway through to grab a blanket.

    The staff seemed like they were very uninterested in being there. When we got our check, the waiter threw it on the table so the pen bounced a couple times and quickly walked away without asking us about our meal or experience.

    The food itself was ok. The portions were large and it tasted just ok, but not anything spectacular. For what it was, it felt overpriced.

  267. E H 2022/02

    Service was super slow. The waiter handed me a pitcher of water with a straw, no cup. A bit odd but I was willing to excuse it. What I couldn’t excuse was having to wait 20 minutes for the waiter to come to my table to take my order. Food came in a reasonable amount of time. The food was okay, nothing special. Had to wait another 20 minutes after I was finished eating to receive the check.

    Not sure if they were simply understaffed or something else.

    mediocre food, slow service.

    first time in Richmond and was brought to this place for dinner, I saw the reviews and was so excited to try the food! Unfortunately the food was bland and was not satisfying at all. The meal cost me $33 and although it may not seem as expensive I could’ve bought something else more filling than what I ate. The meat had no flavor and was covered in sauce with onions and mushroom on top but even that couldn’t have made it taste better. I will give credit where credit is due though because the mash potatoes was probably the most flavorful thing that I ate. Another thing that was displeasing about the experience was how unwelcoming the place felt. The only time I’d ever recommend this restaurant would be to someone I hated.

I have finally made it to this new version over 30 years later, and I was not disappointed. The staff is quirky as ever, and I had the best cheeseburger since forever. Glad I made it back 2 generations later

The service was quick and I enjoyed the biscuits and gravy the most. The portion were enough to feed two hungry adults. I enjoyed a mimosa with my meal. Thank you Leland for being attentive.

    This is a live review since we are currently sitting here waiting for the food. There’s twelve of us and so far the male host seems to be annoyed by our presence. We are split in two parties of six but despite two nearby tables being available he decided to split us into three parties. He is definitely lacking in congenitally. Waitresses are very nice though.

    Alright here’s the short version first: the food is fantastic, the staff is awesome, the ranch is homemade and amazing.

    (TL;DR below)
    Here’s the long version: Story time! I grew up down near Roanoke, and there was a restaurant over in Troutville called Country Cookin’ that we would eat at every so often. When I was younger, I thought their country fried steak was the best thing ever. I loved it so much.
    Sadly, over the years they went downhill and the quality fell. Or maybe it was always mediocre, and being a child I simply never knew.
    Regardless, as I took my friend here for his birthday a week or so ago, I was pondering what to order off of their very versatile and extensive menu. I was stuck between the chicken strips (which my friend, who is one of those guys who orders chicken strips from literally every restaurant, says are the best chicken strips ever) and a croissant sandwich when I saw “country fried steak” on the menu.
    I got excited and ordered it, hoping it wouldn’t be some subpar mushy chunk of fried batter. I was very relieved to find that not only was it NOT a mushy chunk of oily breading, it was like reliving the loving moments of my childhood again; trying a country fried steak for the first time.
    I devoured the entire thing and was very full and super happy.
    We went again tonight and once again, it was still so fresh and tasty.
    Needless to say, I am super happy now that I’ve found somewhere with country fried steak that it actually good!
    Maybe next time I can get a picture before I inhale the thing.

    TL;DR: Country fried steak is better than the one I ate at a small restaurant in southern Virginia as a child, at which I have fond memories of trying my first country fried steak.

    Everything we ordered was amazing. The pizza was so good, and very cheesy! I love that they serve breakfast all day so I was able to order a bagel with cream cheese and bacon. What could have been better was their hash browns, as it was just diced potatoes, so it wasn’t what we were expecting. All in all 10/10.

    DISAPPOINTING!! Tasteless food. No customer service standard? It’s evening time and I really wanted French Toast. I’d heard great things about this place and read some great reviews. My husband and I went for dinner, there was a wait so you have to stand outside on the sidewalk. We waited and were seated 30 minutes later, near the small area where the food comes out. The waiter and waitresses wait here without their masks on while getting your food. Our waiter came by for our drink order and took his time getting back to us with our water and to get our food order. We ordered French Toast that came with potatoes and a Philly Cheesesteak Sub with fries. The best thing were the fries, which were okay. French toast was dissatisfing and low taste and was delivered with a sticky syrup bottle 🙁 Potatoes were not seasoned, just cooked cut potatoes. Blown away by the “no taste” cheese steak! Our server never checked on us again until he brought our check. I would never recommend this place. The only positive is the food looked nice…

    Loved this place adjacent to the VCU Virginia Commonwealth University. Parking is not too good in the area, but we managed. Since we are not from the area, the parking situation was a surprise. This is no reflection on the restaurant though. We enjoyed the great atmosphere, food and service. We even bought a mini pitcher as a souvenir of the visit.

    😱 WOWZER …… FOR THE PLACE WILL definitely throw you off your JUDGEMENT SEAT

    QUESTIONS LIKE…. HOW CAN A PLACE OF SUCH NON EXPENSIVE DECOR AND FANCY RESTAURANT SETTING PRODUCE SUCH AN INCREDIBLE 5 💎 STAR HOTEL CHEF QUALITY MEAL

    I WONDERED THE VERY SAME THING

    DONT JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER

    THIS PLACE AND THE WAITER AND WAITRESS THAT WORK THERE WILL NOT BE DRESSED IN A SUIT AND TIE NOR WILL A RED CARPET BE LAID OUT FOR YOU STEPS TO WALK ON…

    BUT I TELL YOU THERE FOOD SHOULD GET THE VERY ATTENTION I JUST SPOKE

    I ATE THERE WITH GENUINE LOVES OF MY LIFE AND WE ALL HAD SPENT 2 HOURS THERE ENJOYING THE ENTIRE GATHERING BUT I MUST SAY THE FOOD WAS BEYOND TASTY

    YOU WOULD THINK WHO EVER COOKS THEIR FOOD MUST BE THE SAME COOK WHO MAKES FOOD FOR CELEBRITIES OR EVEN THE WHITE HOUSE

    TO THE CHEF OF THIS PLACE

    I PERSONALLY SAY THANK YOU

    JOB WELL DONE

    YOU GAVE ME SUCH DELIGHT when I ate at your restaurant

    I ordered the spaghetti vegetable dinner came with an awesome SIMPLE but very FRESH salad

    I almost would think they went in the garden THAT VERY DAY to cut my tomatoes and onions and salad leafs

    Everything at this place was delicious

    I recommend this place absolutely to anyone who is picky of quality of food.

    They hit a home run in my book !

    Great job

    Phenomenal food.
    Was not a fast food service but the food was worth the wait!

    Thanks again !

    I’m from the land of breakfast: all day, anytime, all the time. So you can imagine my shock to relocate and find quite a few breakfast places here aren’t open till WEDNESDAY? So after the 3rd stop today (Tuesday) and no breakfast, there was the Village Cafe! A very hard working young man greeted, seated, took orders, served and ensured the money was collected. He might have cooked too! Kudos!! We had omelets and French toast, grits and fried apples. Everything was fresh and delicious! Ok, the coffee was a bit watery but I’ve had way worse. Loved the personal water pitchers (ask for water!) Masks are required and they maintain social distance seating (Thank you!) Great menu, exceptional service! Breakfast on a Tuesday! Yay!!

    This place is amazing!! We came here after we left a place with horror service and expensive pricing. When we walked in we noticed that they were busy however, we were seated very quickly for a table four. When we ordered our food or drinks arrived very quickly in these cute pictures that will leave you to not need a refill. However if you do need one to get one for free and the price was like two bucks. Our food came out on time and promptly and as a collective table so we weren’t waiting for somebody else to get their food or to get their drinks I’ll wait trust was super attentive and very polite. Overall the atmosphere is Da naresh and homely definitely will be going back there because it’s just a nice spot to be with your friends and catch up in the food was really good!

    My daughter lives in Richmond, and The Village Cafe is part of the reason why visiting is always a great experience.

    Anytime I am traveling, I always check out the virgin Bloody Mary’s. Combined with a good lunch and a good milkshake, the food was excellent. Our waitress was attentive to my needs. Being that I have high functioning autism, I had a lot of questions and they were answered without hesitation. Overall, if I lived here, I would be here on a daily basis. Bravo Zulu on a job well done. If anyone cannot have alcohol like me, ask for a virgin bloody Mary. You won’t regret it.

    This is a great place, the staff is nice and kind, and I can fully appreciate a place that’s bold, especially during covid.
    Not only are they smart about this pandemic, but they have amazing food.
    Their chicken tenders are always so tender and breaded perfectly, and their country steak is absolutely banging! Their drinks are pretty good too, try the Rise and Shine, it’s great.
    Vibes of this place are nice too!

    I had the ribeye, mashed potatoes 🥔 and green beans. It was okay. The ribeye was a little bit overcooked for me but still good. It was very busy the day I went (on a Sunday). So it took a while to receive our food order. However, I will return there. It’s been around for a long time. Bring a jacket if the air conditioner is on though. It was freezing 🥶 inside.

Ever since discovering this place for myself I can’t get enough of their fries, veggie burgers or the cute decor, it really is a favorite spot of mine here in Richmond

  368. Mason Dubina 2021/05

    Village Cafe is a tight squeeze with a wide variety of bar favorites. I had the loaded bacon cheese fries, onion rings and village calzone. Each of them were HUGE in size and flavor. They also have milkshakes that will make you melt while you freeze your brain up. They also have the most generous waiters in the business that were willing to re-make an order that was very mildly not to perfection. Small place, BIG time bar food!

    I was visiting from Fredericksburg and my sister, her boyfriend and I decided to stop here after leaving the science museum, we were then seated after a short time since after our table was cleaned(reason for that being the pandemic of course), I was very impressed with their selection of the appetizers that they had, if you do get a appetizer, I would recommend their pizza fries(which is mostly fries, sauce, cheese and pepperoni, similar to a pizza but without the dough), which we all shared and it was super good, it was the best creation idea for a appetizer that I have ever seen(there is a picture for it below), I got the spaghetti with the spicy meat sauce

    One of my parents’ favorite local places! An absolutely fantastic beer selection, and their milkshakes are thick and made with good ingredients. I recommend vanilla ice cream with toasted marshmallows and coffee, but there are plenty of tasty mix-ins and I doubt any one of them is truly bad. The fries and onion rings are perfect — crispy and flavorful.

    A Richmond staple, I’ve been coming here since I was roughly 12 and have continued coming through 25. The food is reasonably priced and around 10 dollars a plate. The beer is plentiful. I’d reccomend the Italian sausage burrito – it tastes reminiscent of gumbo or jumbalaya with the sausage and latin flavors in one dish.

    Best western omelette, big plates, good money for the size of plates, amazing milkshakes and fun flavors, cool urban art and things in the wall, a diner experience, but with a bar. It’s in a good place of VCU, next to the late night pizza joint, after you party, get there early they been full and you been hungry amazing 🍕 Christian’s next to it. They (Village Cafe) have all day breakfast 🥞🥓🍳, it’s everything you need for breakfast everyday without going broke replacing it for all your chefs now. Haha good cooks, in the kitchen. Really nice servers, they know you by name most times, never long wait eveeir there is a line out the door, always “10-15 minutes”, a local store staple, I’m glad the pandemic didn’t take this from us too unlike some many of our best restaurants in Richmond, we appreciate you guys.

    Always consistently good, reliable food. They uphold the tightest safety standards and actually seem to give a hoot about their customers (immunocompromised and all). Any and all negative remarks about service/staff ought to be discarded, considering they are working in the service (food) industry during a global pandemic and a major worker shortage. Frankly, I don’t know how grateful I’d feel to be a waitress/waiter and/or host/hostess right now either. Be gentle with your service team(s), they’re doing their best to accommodate you.

    This is a American tradition food one can find burgers, subs,salads, very limited soups here. Appetizers are good about with less volume like only 4 onion rings for $5. Happy hour is daily from 4pm to 7pm will less priced selected beers and drinks, but no appetizer at reduced price. We enjoyed the food and ambiance of the place, nice and cozy atmosphere. Staff was very accommodating and helpful. If you are in a mood of good hot meal with a decent price, this is the place in Richmond Virginia, parking is difficult to find at peak hours on street only, paid.

    Amazing. Food was great, fast, and large portions. Service was excellent as well. I own/operate a similar concept in Florida and was very happy I found this place. Will be back if in the Richmond area.

  427. Wade Huish 2020/12

    Some of the best food in Richmond. I used to come here every Saturday with a friend of mine to get the Oreo Pancakes. The service is always good. Only downside is you have to search for parking but the struggle is worth it.

    The bartender shakes his head, says nothing and pours drinks for the next guy.

    I was sober, had never been there before. Wow…

    Very Dissapointed.

    Food is good, service is quick. The bartender during the day could be a little more friendly. His hospitality seems like its forced versus genuine.

    I never send food back but I got salmon and it was overdone and salty. Our server, Brian, was so nice about it and even took it off for me after getting it redone. Other than the fish the food is pretty good. I just wanted to give Brian a shoutout for being so kind and chill.

  456. Obri Richardson 2020/08

    The service here is terrible. The waitress kept digging and touching her nose. I did not see her clean and sanitized her hands once. And I found hair in my food. I was so disappointed from this experience. I will not return after this experience.

  457. L Bick 2020/08

    Their portions are large, and I mean enough for 2 people or for left overs. The bartender’s demeanor is pleasant. Takeout is ready much quicker than expected. The whole experience is quick and smooth. Almost forgot to mention that the food is rich and tasteful. The food style is a hybrid between a cafe and a diner.

  464. Helen Pappas 2020/07

    Got a cheeseburger and added bacon for a dollar, and there were four pieces! Delicious!! Fries were okay. Then, we got the special half rack of pork barbecue ribs with broccoli and coleslaw. The ribs were amazing! The meat was falling off the bone… Couldn’t even eat them with your hands! We had to eat them with a fork but oh my goodness they were divine. Broccoli was unseasoned/steamed, and the coleslaw was good and creamy. Definitely going there again, especially because it was so affordable too.

  465. Ben A 2020/06

    Great cozy little place, decent pricing and good quality. They stay busy, which means they are popular!!

    Cool little room, college vibe, service was great, beer was good. Food was lackluster at best. Went with a friend, we both had the Fish & Chips and we both were disappointed. Fish portion was small, over breaded and over cooked. Batter should be light and fluffy this was 3 little dark mahogany bites, picture a Baby Ruth. So it was old oil or severely over fried, as I said at the time the cod had been killed twice. Fries were OK, tartar and remoulade were good. The slaw was the best thing on the plate.
    OK for a college restaurant but don’t make a special trip, street parking also a pain.
    Through the countless millennia I’ve eaten a lot of Fish & Chips this one I’d just as soon forget.

  474. Krystal Clear 2020/05

    Everything was fresh and so good. We had the Chicken stir fry, Chicken bacon sandwich and the fried Cod sandwich OMG

  475. Mark Joyner 2020/05

    Love this place. A mini pitcher of tea and most any food you like. Delicious vegetarian options as well as unique one off specials. Sandwiches,entrees, you name it, they have it. Create your own hummus pitas sandwich. Mmm

  476. Damon L 2020/05

    Service was fantastic! And the food was very good! I had the meatloaf, at the bartender’s recommendation, and it was delicious. Would definitely recommend it.

    Place says they are open till 2am but you cant order food after 11pm. So, what do they sell from 11-2? We were very rushed. Toast was burnt, they must have run out of hashbrowns because we got half hashbrowns and half french fries… smh…

  481. Oliver Harmon 2020/04

    I went here for breakfast, with an empty stomach, and i exited with a happy and full belly plus plenty of leftovers! The servers are really nice and the dishes are GINORMOUS! I had a fried mozzarella balls platter as a starter, and for my main dish, I had the country fried steak platter with mashed potatoes, bread, and macaroni and cheese!! I was really happy to come here and I thoroughly enjoyed it! 🙂

  483. Susan Moore 2020/03

    Great small bar/restaurant in a busy college town. Lots of home style food. Reasonably priced. My side of broccoli was more than I could eat. Open-faced turkey sandwich was good but a little over seasoned for me. Good service. Super sized menu for such a small place.

    Dropped in here totally because of COVID 19 and was totally delighted with friendly service, a tasty meal and great prices. I started with a well-made gin and tonic to a company The hummus platter that we had as a starter with my friends. The starter was an abundant plate of hummus, tomatoes, cheese, onions and warm pita bread. I enjoyed the salmon dinner which was cooked a beautiful rare by my request. My friends both had the Caesar salad with salmon on top which they also enjoyed thoroughly. Are your companies my dinner with a glass of Picpoul wine. I will certainly be back.

    I usually like everything from here. I ordered steak and cheese. The steak had no flavor. No salt or pepper was used to cook. It was not worth the price. Never again

  506. Kylee Vaughn 2019/12

    Customer service is decent and they have set in place social distancing but when I ordered a Greek salad with balsamic vinegar as the dressing and was very disappointed with the first bite and was could not even finish or continue to eat the salad as the olives were more tart and proper tasting than the dressing which tasted as if they add a cup or more of sugar. I did not expect that a simple balsamic vinegar dressing would be sweeter than southern sweet tea but thats what I received. Then when closing my tab and lunch with a friend I was clear that I was paying for my salad only as thats all I ate as well and she then placed half amounts of other items ordered by other people. My friend is from out of town and this is one of few places she’s been and she wanted to here but I will not be returning after such a exhausting experience.

    My 1st visit there (google reviews helped), staff was friendly and helpful and the food i ordered was different (breakfast pizza) but actually good and i enjoyed their pitcher glasses of iced tea. I definitely can see another visit in the future when i pass thru Richmond again. The ambience was delightful.

    Update: My second visit has made me like the cafe even more. I enjoyed their Potato Skins appetizer which was very delicious & plentiful serving for both of us. There was no skimping on this selection. My ribeye sandwich was also delicious, served with Onions rings which I subbed for the fries(didn’t want to overload on starch since i had the potato skins.) Yet a nice day in Richmond completed by a visit to nearby VMFA. They truly earned my 5stars, staff, food, & ambience make this worth the drive to Richmond.
    I haven’t tried their bar yet but that is on my to do list.

    I shared a sandwich and iced tea when I arrived late for my lunch appointment. The BLT was more than enough for a typical quick meal. The service was outstanding. I was offered an ice tea to go . I couldn’t have been happier. This iconic VCU neighborhood restaurant has survived all the economic challenges as far back as I can remember when I graduated over 30 plus years ago. This place is a must do when ever you’re in town. Oh ,and the prices are very reasonable!

    A nice affordable place for any meal. Breakfast served all day. My only complaint is that sometimes my order isn’t exactly right, like getting fries when I ordered coleslaw with my sandwich. Most of the food is on the greasier side, personally I like that. A nice classic diner atmosphere.

    Wonderful tasting food, great prices. Prime location, bar nd sports. Ordered buffalo chicken sandwich, it’s really yummy. Quesadillas are perfect, one of the best tasting for sure. Decent Customer service. But beware if u try to visit during lunch time, its gonna be real busy.

  576. Dan R 2019/08

    The village holds a place deep in the heart of every VCU alumni. The menu is huge and varied so everyone will find something they like, and their pancakes are pretty good.

  577. Wealthmind Desgin 2019/08

    It was awesome. I wish I would’ve taken pictures but it was lovely. Had mac n cheese nachos bbq wings cheese fries pizza fries allat but I had water lemonade tea. They got milkshakes all TYPES!

  578. Bekki Johnson 2019/08

    After living in Richmond for 5 years I’ve finally discovered this place and frankly I’m kicking myself for not finding it sooner. The food was incredible and the milkshake was divine. (Actual ground coffee beans in my milkshake?!) I’ll certainly be back.

  579. Craig Taylor 2019/08

    I’ve loved this place since I was young. It’s SO VCU! As in, you KNOW you’re by VCU when you visit, just from the staff and patrons – this is a good thing. It’s so easy to just “fall into” the Village, because it’s so comfortable. Good food, zero stress… Just go eat and chill. Have some pancakes! They’re delicious… Especially the bananas ones. Oh, and the prices are so reasonable! Love.

  580. z N 2019/08

    Village is the best. It is one of my top 5 everything in Richmond. It may be the last of the true dives that serve solid drink specials and cheap eats all day. The food is great and the bartenders and servers are awesome. Go in, sit at the bar, mingle with the regulars and people watch out of the giant windows that look out onto Grace st. I LOVE VILLAGE.

  594. Ultra Ginormous 2019/07

    The Village Cafe is just one of my favorite places to be, period. The food is great despite running the gamut from breakfast burritos to pizza to pulled pork. The coffee is great, the bartenders I’ve known have been fantastic people both in front of and behind the bar, same for the servers. It’s a favorite local spot for many many people for their selection of beer, liquor, and personality. I hear there’s also a secret chamber in the bathroom but you have to be able to speak parseltongue, but that might be a different place further up the road.

  595. Patrice Braxton 2019/07

    One of the best breakfast places I’ve been to in a long time. Food was so tasty, potion sizes were generous, and the price point was great. Service was friendly and quick. Would definitely recommend giving this place a try.

    Definite richmond vibe. Food is fresh. The fried cheese was delicious. I had the chicken quesadilla. It wasn’t unique, but well made. And of course the milkshakes were bomb! The only thing we wouldn’t recommend is the meatball sub. My husband got it and said it was bland and unimpressive.

    My favorite part of the place were the cups. They serve your drink in a small pitcher which you drink out of. I had tea, but they will put two beer draft pints in a pitcher for you to drink from if you request it. The server was good. She refilled our drinks without being prompted. I had the Turkey melt which tasted really good. The place is bigger then it looks like from the outside.

  619. Ms Laureano 2019/05

    Sometimes is all about making memories and enjoying life in the moment. My kids and their friends thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Especially when their, what I like to call “manly mugs” came out. You couldn’t tell them nothing. The serving size is always big and you are guaranteed to get more for your buck. The seating is a little tight so I would call ahead and ask if they have room for a large party. I’ve never gone pass the front seating area so I cant vouch for them as far as a conference room goes but it was 6 of us and they were able to accommodate. Even with minimum table space, you will enjoy your food. The waiters and waitresses are polite and attentive.

    Village Cafe is a classic Richmond hang spot. I’ve been a patron since I came to VCU in 2008 and the food is always on point. As VCU grew, the parking on Grace became hard, if not impossible, to find. Walking a few blocks is a small sacrifice for the delicious food. (When you go, do yourself a favor and get an order of the onion rings 🤤)

  642. Brandon Binczak 2019/03

    Black bean burger and fries were both great. Fair portions as well. Charged full price for getting a dessert minus the ice cream, which was half the dessert in question, but that’s a fairly small quibble.

  645. Charles Palting 2019/03

    I have never had a bad experience here. The staff is welcoming and the environment is college/family friendly and cozy. The food is completely worth it for the price. Village Cafe is definitely one of the fine jewels of Richmond!

  646. David Van Wagener 2019/03

    Very cool place with lots of food options. I tried the Village Fish & Chips, thinking if they attached their name to it, it’s probably good. Good call! It was flaky and well-battered. The malt vinegar was good for the chips too. Good cole slaw but nothing special there. The tea was fine but it was served in mini pitchers, which was a pretty good touch. My buddy had an omelette off their all-day breakfast menu and he pronounced it tasty.

  647. No Nonsense 2019/03

    My rating may be biased because I’ve read good reviews but apparently their brunch/breakfast isn’t their strong suit. Their french toast was the worst I’ve ever had. I took one bite and sent it back. The potatoes were okay but that was definitely the most disappointing brunch I’ve ever had. Hopefully that changes and the rest of their food is on a higher level. The staff was nice though and they took it off of my tab.

  648. Charles Peraino 2019/03

    I have always enjoyed eating open face sandwiches at the village cafe. But last week, I got a turkey open face sandwich with salty, crapy pressed turkey instead of their tasty turkey of the past. I am trying to reach their manager to see if this was a one night problem. I realize that increasing costs

  649. Celianne Mendez 2019/03

    Oh so so so good!! Cool, trendy place. Open late, perfect for a meal or a quick bite after a good time downtown. Very friendly hostess. She even got us dessert after the kitchen was closed. We looooved the warm peach cobbler, big burrito and the quesadillas. They have vegan & gluten free options.

  650. Jeremy Cummings 2019/03

    The village is a local favorite and college hot-spot, given it’s close proximity to the VCU campus. The food is the best part of this place. The staff leave something to be desired though – our waitress was rude and was acting as if she was annoyed by the fact there were customers in the restaurant. Redeeming though, the all-day breakfast is sure to be a hit. Everyone’s drinks come in an individual pitcher, and the food portions are just as generous. Be sure to try the pizza fries (with ranch!) as well as one of their homemade milkshakes – you won’t be disappointed. Their menu also features rotating daily specials, and is so expansive – there is surely something for everyone. They are also open late if you’re a night owl like myself. If you’re craving comfort food then this is the place for you.

    Yes went to meet my buddy from work for a few beers. I was ignored at end of bar for a good while before a reluctant young lady saw me waving money . yes that is rude but what was I to do. Ordered small pitcher of beer which she filled about 65 percent full and set at her edge bar where I could barely get to. Yes I am not a hipster but am an engineer and successful person . had to buy beer thru my buddy because he fit her so called mold. Not looking for anything but a beer and comraderie!

  659. Dave Cameron 2019/02

  677. Garrott Gardner 2019/01

    God tier place right down from the VCU library.

    I go in. I order some corned beef hash for about 3.50. I get served an ENTIRE PLATE OF HASH.

    I order a sausage, egg, and cheese sandwich. Comes with hash browns.

    They give me a sandwich that TAKES UP MOST OF THE PLATE, and the hash browns are quartered potatoes, sauteed with onions.

    This place has some of the best portion sizes I have ever seen. If you dont have a problem with 5-9 dollar foods (almost everything falls in that range), then definitely check this place out.

    Just dont order any of the pasta related foods unless you are prepared to take home leftovers.

    A Richmond counter culture classic. The jukebox has not been updated in decades, nor should it. I’m pretty certain some of the patrons at the bar were sitting there 25 years ago on my first visit. Most of the food is pretty good but the onion rings and the waffles are the stand out dishes.

    This is a very nice restaurant and bar. I got the chicken parm and the chicken itself was great, however I would have loved more sauce on the dish and the noodles were kinda underdone. Although they did give a nice size portion for your money.

  702. Meredith G (MLG) 2018/11

    Great place for comfort food at a reasonable price. Staff is always friendly and helpful. It’s the best place for cheese fries, hands down. It’s right in the middle of VCU campus, so it does attract a lot of students. The atmosphere is fun and lively.

  703. Dap _Matic 2018/11

    This place surprisingly good!!!.Its an awesome diner/pub type establishment. The waiter was very friendly and served us rather quickly. The drinks (non alcoholic) were served in mini pitchers and that’s what I call “Bang for your buck”. Breakfast served all day is awesome. All n all… the food no matter the time is great. Never had a complaint here.

    I have always loved the Village Cafe, my recent visit was not typical. All new faces, service was not good at all. Not sure whats happened but they need to go back to the way it was

  715. Heather Burson 2018/10

    Fun friendly dinner with my family! Food was awesome and inexpensive. I highly recommend the onion rings! Service was great and not too bothersome either. This is probably going to turn into it regular hang out for us.

    Our first stop on our road trip was in Village Cafe to eat breakfast. The atmosphere was amazing, the food was delicious and they served quickly. Definitely we will come again.

    The food was prepared from Frozen rather than fresh. Horrible

    I could say so much about this place because I go there all the time but all I’ll say is I’ve never had an experience here that didn’t make me eager to come back.

    Excellent Choices for beer and drinks and nice evening/ night atmosphere!! Oh.. food good too…

    Yummy food, but can be noisy…
    Love the huge, individual drink pitchers, but wish they served Coke products.

    Enjoyed our visit with my VCU granddaughter. Loved my ham and cheese croissant sandwich. A little loud but still enjoyed it. Nice staff.

  734. Matt L 2018/09

    First things first, we had THE nicest waiter! He was very pleasant and extremely (but not overly) attentive. On top of all that the food was delicious. My gf got the fried provolone sandwich and I hit the chicken salad with rings. Both sandwiches were amazing. I don’t think I could handle an entire cheese sandwich myself, but it was good. The rings were very unique and I’d definitely recommend them. A+

  735. Melissa Nobles 2018/08

    EXCELLENT FOOD CHOICES …TASTY DISHES AND FRIENDLY STAFF

  736. Vee 2018/08

    Excellent service. The place was packed and the wait to be seated ran about 15/20 minutes. Once my party was seated, i ordered Fish and Chips. My ordered came fairly quick, considering The amount of patrons that were present. The cod was moist, piping hot and the fries were crisp, hot and flavorful. The Arnold Palmer (tea/lemonade mix) drink wasn’t shabby either.

  737. Melody Stubbs 2018/08

    It’s not the “Old Village” but nothing is anymore. It’s a good place to grab a beer and a bite on campus. And it’s still great for people watching.

  750. Timothy 2018/07

    Excellent food and service. If you haven’t been, you have to try the veggie burrito! Super filling 🙂

  757. Taylor Hiltz 2018/07

    I have been coming to Village Cafe for over two years. Today, my boyfriend and I stopped in on our day off duty to get lunch. There were no silverware/napkins at our table. Our waiter, Jonathan I believe, avoided our table like the plague. My stromboli was burned and cold in the center. To top it off, when we were leaving, the bartender asked our waiter “Did they tip?”. Incredibly rude. Despite not being properly served at all, we had still left a good tip. I have never been treated so rudely at Village Cafe. Very disappointed, as I had good memories there.

    When you want breakfast anytime or a great milkshake this is the place. Good food.

  761. Erika Falasco 2018/06

    This place is awesome and it always feels lively no matter the time of day! They also serve breakfast all day for the late sleepers and chronic breakfast food addicts of the city! This place has an aesthetic that to me kind of blends old school city diner with artsy metropolitan I really enjoy and appreciate about the over all experience. In my opinion they have pretty large portion sizes and my first few times going there was first semester as a freshman in college where we shared fries, shakes, and appetizers. Everything was and still is great and none of it tastes cheap or disappointing.

    I love it, been coming here for several years now! Specifically, the fried chicken club is always amazing.

  766. Arianna L.O 2018/06

    The food isn’t impressive, considering the price too. They ran out of one of the specials, which was still on the board. Service is slow

  767. Rashi Malpani 2018/06

    There is not one thing on the menu I haven’t tried and nothing ever disappointed me. I used to go here twice a week when I was studying at VCU and I just loved the food and the ambience over here. 😊 …

  768. Ariel Whitehead 2018/06

    Great service. Food, not so much. Bacon was definitely a few days old and cold and the bloody mary tasted like it had cocktail sauce in it. Atmosphere and employees were great, just didn’t help my meal.

  769. anshul gupta 2018/06

    Have not eaten such tasty and fresh Quesadillas in ages – crispy and fresh, soft as snow ! Also the chicken sandwich was filling and was really tasty 😋!

  776. K J 2018/05

    I am an old school Village gal. It’s been an adjustment with the times changing, but the food is still just as diverse and gratifying as ever. My only complaint is the blue cheese dressing that used to be homemade is now a thick, gelatin-like substance that can’t hold a candle to the original. That and the fact that employees wear uniforms as though this is a cooperate environment. They still have character and the food is still yummy. Go there! Just don’t go there expecting food a half hour before the kitchen closes. They are on “bar time” and have lost mucho business as a result. Can’t tell you how many nights we have been super let down, even though MY clock says 11:30pm 😒 Go next door to the pizza place!!! KILLER NYC style pizza!!! Christian’s pizza

  777. Devin Shipp 2018/05

  792. Christopher Adcock Jr. 2018/03

    I often bring out of town people here to sit, relax, have coffee, and talk. The booths are big enough to fit 4 comfortably and it’s not too loud. Their chocolate cake is huge and enough to feed 4.

  801. Amy Little 2018/03

    A group and I got appetizers to share, the cheese fries were alright, nothing special. The onion rings, potatoe skins, and honey bbq chicken wings were fantastic. Everything was hot when it came out, and they gave us plenty ranch to dip everything in. Plenty of beers on draft, and the cocktail names are really clever. Service was good, and the pitcher glasses are cute. The caramel milkshake was pretty tasty, but I had no desire to finish all of it.

  802. Shannon Roulet 2018/03

    Really good cheese fries but definitely overpriced on some things, especially drinks. During dinner or VCU games the place can get super packed but they have a lot of booths and the service is consistently decent, also food comes out pretty quick. Milkshakes are giant. A reliable and corny option if you’re tryna get a meal around VCU.

    I liked it better when it was the old Village..of course it looks better and it’s much bigger but has lost its “character”..also the waitress was super slow bringing drinks and hip hop music was pretty much blaring the entire time. No plans of going back! 👎 …

  813. Aye Gee 2018/02

    Steak & cheese sub had no seasoning & the fries were bland as well, the temperature was fine but I wouldn’t order this again. The person with me got a club & I tasted a small piece of that which was good. I will return.

    Busy student favorite one block off Broad Street. Have only been for brunch twice and had the cowboy burrito both times. Very filling and tasty. Hash browns might be called home fries by some and were a little salty. Very crowded and noisy but service was excellent and food arrived quickly. Drinks served in little pitchers.

The fish and chips was ok. Not #5 worthy. I want to come for a third time, can anyone suggest another meal for me to try?

  851. Jonathan Bradley 2017/11

    Went once, got the regular burger with pepperjack cheese which was really good. The fries were really good too. I also got pizza cheese fries which were ok but I was just really full from the burger. Food came out really fast and the service was great. Went at like 3 o’clock and it wasn’t very busy. I think I’ll find myself back here.

    Village cafe is the perfect Saturday morning greasy spoon eatery that college kids crave. The portions are huge but the price is reasonable. Service is fantastic!

    This has to be my favorite local place to eat. All the food I’ve tried there has been A+ and very affordable for the amount of food you get. Great size portions, everyone is very kind, and fun environment. It can get a bit loud at times so be weary of that. But otherwise, it’s a must try!

    Some good comfort diner food. Service is great. The fried chicken is terrible. They tout their milkshakes but I’d go to the galaxy if that’s what I wanted. They’re infinitely better there. Overall I’d say go to the Village for convenience. Go to the Galaxy on Cary if you have the time and you’re graving a diner menu.

    Usually I come here to have breakfast. The pancakes here is delicious and the servers are kind.

    Not a bad spot. But in my opinion, you can get better food for a more reasonable price. I feel like lots of the food is slightly bland in flavor. But the drinks are good and the srvice is great! Its very convenient to my home, but i dont know exactly what their specialty is

    The service was nice enough, and despite being packed, the food arrived in a timely fashion, but the blueberry pancakes I ordered mostly tasted like baking soda. The atmosphere and decor was busy and uhhh… diner-y? If you’re the sort of person who would have a Christmas nook set up year round, maybe this will appeal to you.

    They’re pretty good, a nice place if you want something consistent. They serve Cafe style food with a little bit of character. Good for comfort food or beer

    The Village Cafe was my “go-to” restaurant back in college… Just moved back to the Richmond area from Chicago, and the menu is just as solid as it was 7 years ago. All of the great sandwiches you could possibly want (Sailor Sandwich YES!), with pizza, pasta, calzones, salads, burritos, breakfast, and of course that iconic, ice-cold PBR, in a Village Cafe pint glass. One of a few classics remaining among the growing number of chain restaurants in the VCU area.

    Food is always great. It was pretty busy so service was kind slow

    A fan classic. People from all walks show up here. Lots of fun as a last stop on the weekends. Unless you’re a lame. If you’re a lame you should probably skip it.

    i just got back from picking up my food. Extremely disappointed. Will not ever order carry out here again. it’s a 3 minutes drive to my house, yet when i got home i had a french onion soup that had the lid melt/flake plastic pieces into my soup, (which they placed 2 unstable cups of soup into a bag….. I tried the mozzarella balls which were not hot, but nuke warm with rubbery cheese in a room temperature fried shell they were disgusting. Not as i remember when i ate at the restaurant. seriouslly the only reason i can see it wouldn’t be hot is that it took the bartender 10-15 minutes to finally get to me as he had 3 drinks to make…..

    The fish & chips were outstanding!

    I have been a Villager off and on for the last 20 something years. You must have the Village cheddar fries. Great food, drinks, and atmosphere. R.I.P. Hans

    I used to not go here because of one time I went three years ago and my chicken on my sandwich wasn’t done but I decided to give it another time this past weekend and I feel in love with the black bean burger I had. The customer service was also
