The food was tasty as usual. The service sucked! I had to get up to get a coffee refill. There were only 4 tables seated. The staff was all BSing in the back. The excuse, "it's not busy so I forgot!" She never even came back after that!

We had already eaten lunch when we happened upon this place, so we went in to view their selection of baked goods, and bought some to take home. There were so many choices it was difficult to make a selection, but we chose the chocolate and plain crème horns and a huge chocolate chip cookie. Delicious! I looked the menu... More

Just had lunch today with some business associates - great place, excellent food, prompt service. The "she crab" soup is delicious and wonderful paired with a 1/2 chicken salad sandwich.

Great way to start 2017. Always a great experience. Will be back again very soon. As a local here I suggest you do yourself a favor and stop in to the Bakery. It has country charm and killer food.

This is a neat little cafe with huge portions that are tasty and homemade. We had the Turtle Cheesecake, and the Windsor Castle sandwich on rye. There was a great selection of other cheesecakes, cakes, cupcakes, and other bakery items as well.

I've never ordered anything at Smithfield Gourmet Bakery that wasn't great . My personal luncheon favorite is the chicken salad sandwich on their fresh home made tomato basil bread. They always have a delicious soup or two on the menu. I have often ordered bread pudding with rum sauce to go. It's the best and it's plenty for two people!... More

Another great restaurant downtown. Always fresh baked breads, cakes or other bakery items. Cafe style setting with a cuisine all their own. Every time we've eaten here it's been a plate of heaven, and that's even before dessert. Everyone is always so friendly and helpful.

Let's start with my favorite, dessert. If you like cakes, pies or pastries then you will love it here. They actually serve food too! The variety is great and the taste is wonderful. The only knock is seating is tough for large groups or at peak hours.

The selection of sweets are many and the taste of each is wonderful. French horns filled with crème, muffins to "die for" and fresh baked cookies are always available. You can stop in for lunch and complete your visit with one of the "Sweet Treats"....a must on Main Street in downtown Smithfield, VA
