East Coast Roadtrip: The Village Cafe

This was a bit of an unexpected stop which is what I love about touring in a car, its these types of things that you tend miss if you were taking a train or plane.  Leaving Washington DC, we started to head towards our next stop Charleston but of course, we needed to stop off for breakfast/lunch.  Since we were driving through Richmond, Virginia, we decided to stop off at the Village Cafe thanks to Guy Fieri’s visit that aired on an episode of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.  Located right in the middle of Virginia Commonwealth University, the cafe was lively with a great casual vibe.  It serves all the classic breakfast staples, I ordered the corned beef hash that came with 2 eggs, toast and potatoes.  I was expecting a chunkier hash, not one that was so “creamed” but despite how it looks, it tasted good.  My friend S ordered fried apples with her meal which in essence was stewed apples and cinnamon.  It was a perfect place to have breakfast and if you’re in Richmond and in need of a bite, the Village Cafe is a great spot.
