I'v passed by White Hawk almost everyday and never really much noticed it until recently. And boy was that a mistake! White Hawk has a great atmosphere and customer service. The food is excellent and I was surprised to see that they sell musical instruments and offer lessons. I'v gone back to eat at White Hawk many times since then and can honestly say I haven't had a bad experience yet.

This may be a great place to meet friends, it is the only coffee house in Goochland. I have never ordered anything there that has been good. Tried a scone for breakfast and it was stale. Tried soup for lunch and it was served in a small plastic bowl. Sandwiches were not good. Everything there is ready made out of a can or package. Nothing is homemade. I wouldn't be surprised if the coffee drinks are prepackaged instant concoctions.

This is a tough review because I really liked this place and see that it has so much potential. We stopped in early evening and the locals were just beginning to filter in carrying mostly guitars. Within a few moments strings were being plucked and a rhythm was beginning to form. It was really cool to see young and old sitting in a semi-circle and jamming away on acoustic instruments - really a great time and wish we could have stayed longer.

Now back to the reason we originally stopped - we were hungry. The menu was quite limited but a fair selection of sandwiches were offered. Soda, tea, and other drinks were available and two adults can expect to eat for $20-25 total. Now the food was ok but nothing really to become excited about. And being served in a plastic basket with a plastic fork - not impressive as the rest of the place.

Service was somewhat strange also. We walked in and were not sure if we should seat ourself but within moments the man behind the "bar" told us to grab a table. And now we waited for a waitress...and once again the guy from behind the "bar" took over and supplied our drinks and eventually our meals. Not sure if that is their standard operating procedure or they were short a waiter but when behind the bar the man was busy enough.

I will stop by again to listen to some music and deal with average food and service. Again, really a cool little place with so much potential!
