Food today was good. Usually is. Service today was fast, not always the case. Price is right for the area for a non chain restaurant. This was during the "Non Tourist" season. This place is super popular with the locals and right on the way for major attractions in the Williamsburg area so it attracts LOTS of business during the... More

The food was average and my husband said the coffee was not very good. I felt it was a bit pricey for what they offer and what we received. Our waitress was very nice.

Only open until 2:00pm, but this local favorite is a great spot for a traditional breakfast, served all day or one of their specials off the Lunch Menu. Best of all, good food and great value! The lunch menu offers best value - lunch fare, beverage included, for a good price. Side dish options includes French fries that enough to... More

With so many pancake restaurants in Williamsburg this is the one to go to. It is so good that even the locals can be found here. There are delicious pancakes, waffles, eggs, omelets, coffee, etc. but they also have a wonderful lunch menu too. Be sure to frequent this friendly place and you will leave with a big smile as...

I would love to come here daily but once a week works too. I love everything I have ever had here but my favorite is their French toast. If you are a local you might want to join the card club. It's an excellent deal.

Prior to the New Year this was a nice local place to have lunch. With the New Year there have been changes by management which have changed this. In the past loyalty card holders got 2 punches on Tuesday. NO MORE! Until the New Year the Baked Chicken Special was a breast, thigh, and leg; Tuesday Jan 3 it was... More

Capitol Pancake is a favorite breakfast spot for us each time we visit Williamsburg. The food is very good. I love the pecan pancakes. The service is always very good. The atmosphere is nice.

Excellent atmosphere, food offerings are tremendously diverse. Our table ordered a variety of dishes, from pancakes to eggs to a steak sandwich, and all were quite satisfied with the food. Servers were very responsive to highly specific orders.
