has the ownership changed?
did a recent accounting graduate buy the joint?

unlike the HGTV fans, visiting suburbanites and city hip posers, i won't complain about lack of parking, or the wait for service or the

My family and I went to this cafe because of its showing on Diners, Drive-In's & Dives. We thought, we were in the Richmond area, find a cafe and visit it. It had mixed reviews at the time we were checking it out, but decided to go anyways. It was crowded for a Sunday afternoon, found a place to sit and waited for the wait staff to take our order. That was the worse thing about it - the wait staff. So slow! It took us almost two hours from start to finish just to eat basic food! It took half hour for our appetizers to come out. Whenever the waiter did come by, you needed to ask for everything you needed because you didn't know when you would see him again. It wasn't like that for other tables around us - their wait staff was running their butts off for them. I think ours took a lot of breaks while we were there. The food was mediocre at best. We ordered pancakes, sandwich and stromboli. I have had better elsewhere. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. It is a waste of time and money.

We went because of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. It was a fun atmosphere, and the food was good, but we were surprised that we were not given any guidance when ordering. For example, my 10 year old daughter had a large pizza (that we thought was for an individual). We also were surprised that we were nickel and dimed for some things that are normally included (i.e. being changed for the cheese and lettuce with a burrito...was that perhaps a mistake? I don't know).

We liked it, but it was over $80 for 6 people for lunch...4 being children.

We liked it, but just study the menu, ask questions and check the bill!

What's not to love about the Village? The service is absolutely speedy. The food is cheap and delicious. The servers are friendly. When you order a water or soda for yourself, it comes in a little personal pitcher! A few months ago, I went for the first time in 5 or 6 years, and the reason I just had to come back was the music. They play some feel-good tunes that made my experience that much better.

My family wanted to try Village Cafe out after seeing it on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and hearing great things from local friends. We had a wonderful meal. I had french toast that was very tasty served with visually unappealing, but delicious potatoes. My husband got a burrito that he enjoyed and the kids split chicken tenders (some of the best we've had) and fries. Check this place out!

My husband wanted to stop at "his old cafe" he use to come when living in Richmond for 5 years, so we stopped for lunch as we were passing through. I actually enjoyed it.

Very inexpensive cafe where the food is good and tasty. I must admit they serve up some of the finest hamburgers around. So good that I ordered one to go as we were only traveling through Richmond on our way up to NJ.

Good prices, friendly customers and staff. Definitely a place to try if you've never been there.

In this cafe the un - uniformed waiters and waitresses rarely ever ask you how you're doing, but I am perfectly convinced that this is solely because they don't feel the need to ask. How could you not be doing fine when sweet tunes are escaping from an old fashioned juke box player and you are sipping a cold drink from a mini pitcher in place of a glass? (oh yeah, that's right. Mini pitchers are sweet.)
As the Beatles come on and sing of 8 days a week, it will remind you of how you wish you could be there that often. Because with the same prices as any other diner but with bigger portions, the swanky atmosphere, and rich character, you'll want to come back for every meal and just soak in a little piece of downtown.
Now it's true if you want a nice, quiet, or sophistocated place, then I would have to stear you to another venue. But if you want what is practically an artistic experience while sitting down for a fullfilling meal or just a cup of coffee, then you'll find a home at the corner of Harrison and Grace Street, a home in the form of the Village Cafe.

Pros: Classic cafe atmosphere with its own unique romance

Cons: little to no parking

...assuming, in this case, you wait long enough. The service is blah, the food is blah, and despite the large dining area, there is no non-smoking section, so be prepared to have anything you order tasting a little bit like an ash tray. Come with an oxygen mask.

Although you'll wait a good half-hour or more to get your food, the portions come large enough to satisfy anyone's hunger. Prices are fair, the atmosphere is excellent and you'll forget how long you were waiting for your meal when you're looking at all of the eye-candy surrounding you -- not to mention you'll have fun watching the waiters bouncing around as they serve each of their tables.

Pros: Great Atomosphere, Large Portions, They do deliveries!

Cons: , hard to find a seat, no parking...

It's your average trashy diner with average food. The food comes bland, but that's why there's condiments on the table. No frills. What do you expect from a diner? There's no parking.
