Loved Smithfield and loved this cafe. The food was homemade, and tasted as good as Inremember from childhood. The eggs, pancakes and bacon were so flavorful. I want to go back while we're in the area. Smithfield is only a 30-40 mile scenic drive from Williamsburg. The town's historic Main Street has colonial shops and homes. It was fun to... More

The food is good. I recommend the pasta with mushroom cream sauce. My husband loves the seafood crepes. The sandwiches are large and served on fresh baked bread. Portions are very generous. Wait staff can be slow at times but are pleasant.

Stopped in for lunch. The portions are very generous and the prices are spout on for the quality of the food. Sandwiches are huge and on fresh baked bread. I had a bowl of the roasted pepper and goat cheese bisque. Yummmm. The chocolate cake was decadent. The Traveling Fireman gives this cafe 5 flames and left with a full... More

We have never been disappointed at the Smithfield Gourment Bakery & Cafe. It is a charming, "local" place where you feel at home as soon as you sit down. Food is always very fresh and delicious. Today we had the seafood crepes with a fresh side salad that was absolutely wonderful! We always bring friends and family to the bakery... More

The food was so amazing, but the server we had and will always ask for is so respectful and it's just a natural gift he has with people skills...my family loves him everytime we come. My family knows that no matter when we go to the bakery, that if (jeremy) is there, we will have an amazing time and great... More

This is the first time I've been here. My mother the in law took me here. The food was real good but the service was terrible We waited a but to get served waited longer for food but after that we waited forever just to get our bill. I just think they need more wait staff.

I have been here a number of times before. Sometimes service is pretty good and sometimes it's pretty bad. The other thing is that they will sometimes close early, or say the kitchen is already closed, or not yet open. I understand Smithfield is a small town, but that is still annoying. Therefore, I do not plan to go back

Hello, I am so sorry you were disappointed.. I would love to know the day our kitchen closed early. We are open for lunch until 4:30pm and until 8:00pm on Friday and Saturday for dinner. Breakfast is from eight am until 10:30am. Our kitchen, because we are small has to have from 10:30am until 11:00am to get ready for lunch... More
