“Convenient, Friendly Lunch Stop”

Richmond on Broad Cafe
Ranked #217 of 1,648 Restaurants in Richmond
Restaurant details
Reviewed 31 March 2014

During a recent "snow day" in Richmond, a friend and I met at Richmond on Broad Cafe. This was my first lunch at this downtown restaurant, and I enjoyed the time. The cafe is plenty clean and has a small variety of sandwiches, wraps and soups. The offerings are appealing and created to suit vegetarians, meat-lovers, and gluten free diners. All of the seating is arranged sort of in the bottom corner of a University of Richmond downtown building. It does not contain the kind of seating you would necessarily want for a romantic date since there really isn't any privacy. It is more of a good place to meet friends or coworkers or fellow students for a casual bite to eat. The cool thing is that two walls are exterior windows which look out onto the Richmond streets of Broad and North 7th.

Upon ordering, we found our cashier to be extremely friendly. Joking with her was fun, and we appreciated her casual kindness. The food preparation went quickly, and we were eating in no time. I ordered a black bean hummus, avocado and cucumber salad in a gluten-free wrap. I found the whole thing to be a bit dry but tasty. Since I do not normally eat gluten-free choices, I might just need to understand that gluten-free "breads" are typically chewy. The portions also seemed to be rather small, but they are possibly respectable for the price. As I do not normally eat lunch downtown, I have no comparison to other lunch spots.

The overall experience was enjoyable. The service was friendly, and the prices were fairly inexpensive for a downtown meal, I think. All in all, Richmond on Broad was a convenient, friendly lunch stop.
