“Great little place for lunch”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

En route from the OBX, we stopped at Onancock and chose Janet because of the Trip Advisor review. The food was fresh and delicious. The portions were huge. The staff was helpful. And Janet was a presence. Not a big detour off the highway, but worth it.

“Long live Janet's”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Janet's is one of those places in a small coastal village you are just so thrilled to find. It has an attractive atmosphere, charming decor, lovely staff and delicious food. I am not rating it as the best food I have ever had because that would apply to something unique or never-tried-before. What Janet's has is complete dependability in the best of the standards you want to find in a cafe like this...club sandwiches, waffles, salads. When you go to a place like Janet's you aren't looking for Steak Tartare. What you are looking for is what they offer. Total satisfaction, and a fun and pleasant time.

“The Reuben...”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Is to die for! Great service, nice atmosphere, very pleasant surroundings, but the sandwiches are great...Janets can't be missed if you're near.

“A trip back in time”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Southern hospitality, old-fashioned decor, home-made food, great value...no wonder Janet's is rated highest on Trip Advisor. Only drawback...closed for dinner.

“Great quick lunch on a rainy Sunday”
Reviewed 31 March 2014 via mobile

We were staying in Cape Charles for a long weekend, but the rainy weather got us in the car driving to explore some other spots on the Eastern Shore. We drove north to Onancock and found Janet's for lunch.
We were warmly welcomed when we walked in the door and shown the menu and specials. There was a large after-church crowd of locals who had the place buzzing. We tried the ham and Brie sandwich special as well as the roast beef sandwich special. Both were great--fantastic fresh bread that was crunchy on the outside but nice and soft inside.
We hope to return in sunnier weather. That said, this was a nice stop.
