“Superb hospitality!”
Reviewed 19 May 2013

My wife and I stayed here over our 32d anniversary and will make it a point to stay here again whenever we travel to the Eastern shore of VA. Our room was very comfortable. Small fridge in the room was helpful, and complimentary water and snacks. The food at the restaurant was superb! Noteworthy was the ability to schedule when we wanted to eat breakfast, and that we could order from a breakfast menu. Again, the food was outstanding and plentiful - more than I could eat. Sandra noted that it was our anniversary and provided a few perks on the occasion - we did not expect this, but this kind of hospitality is uncommon at many of the other inns/B&Bs at which we've stayed. Additionally, a beer or glass of wine was complementary before dinner - was sat in the small garden area and enjoyed the evening before taking in an excellent dinner in the restaurant. Overall a great weekend thanks to Sandra and her fine inn.

This B&B is a real delight. We stayed in the Green Room which was big enough and very clean. Complimentary water/soda was a nice touch. Don't worry if you forgot anything for the trip. You will find it here! Many movies on DVD placed out in the corridor. Breakfast is excellent and served in the attached, very pretty small restaurant. Service is outstanding and all these for $110 plus tax! Unfortunately, the restaurant is open only once a week (Early April). We tried the Market Street Grill just about next door which was very good. If you are in Onancock, I recommend staying at this wonderful B&B.

What a wonderful experience - Sandra has thought of every little detail! She carries it all off with such ease and casualness. Our room had everything we could need plus lots of little extras (including wonderful terry-cloth robes and lovely toiletties). The breakfasts where absolutley outstanding, everything as fresh as possible and beautifully presented. We would certainly return and will tell our friends about the Inn and Garden Cafe.

Elegant, hospitable, beautiful, superbly groomed and reasonably priced. One of the best places we have ever stayed at. Hostess Sandra is attentive to everything that makes a memorable stay. The cafe, under the guidance of chef Paul Fox, qualifies as a five star restaurant. The "attitude adjudtment" happy hour must be the most delightful bargain on the eastern seaboard!

The Inn & Garden Cafe is a lovely place to stay on the Virginia Eastern Shore. Sandra's attention to detail really made a difference. Our room was nicely appointed, very comfortable and had all the little things (mints, snacks & drinks, wonderful choice of toiletries) you could want. Sandra is a terrific cook (the breakfasts were delicious) and a super nice hostess - even saying good-bye to us with a big hug and a goodie bag for our road trip. Diane and Pierre

We can only agree with all the superb reviews on Tripadvisor. My husband and I went there for his birthday. Sandra and her assistants made our stay very nice and unforgettable - the food was delicious, the rooms and house in general offer everything you could possibly need when one is on vacation - and Sandra even drove us to where we wanted to get to since my husband had suffered a leg injury the day previous to our arrival. Thank you Sandra (and your helpers), it was really amazing to be with you and we would definitely choose your Inn again if we would come to that area!

Room Tip: We had the green room upstairs, really nice. Rooms are facing the street, so sleeping with open wind...

We were disappointed. . . after having planned this vacation and reserving the entire B&B (four rooms) six months earlier; we arrived at check-in time to find she had given away half of the rooms!

While she very generously agreed to pay half of our group's first night to stay elsewhere we just were not interested in splitting the family only to move in/move out/move in during our family holiday.

Ms. Fox paid for all four rooms for the first night of our stay at another hotel -- and though this is a more than fair concession our disappointment was overwhelming and we did not go back to the Inn and Garden Cafe.

The comments on Trip Advisor is what drew us to this place -- not a disappointed patron in the bunch; maybe someday . . . .
