Always delicious--fresh, healthy and still feels like comfort food! I rarely get to eat here since I work out of the area, but on days off it's a great treat to be able to sit and enjoy lunch at this amazing tiny restaurant. Even though the menu is relatively small, it's hard to choose just one (or two!) items since every thing on the menu is fabulous.

Real Food is hands-down my favourite lunch stop in Orange. Paul and Sarah have done the impossible, crating delicious, fresh food that you can get FAST. As their name implies, this is REAL Food... lovely fresh ingredients, made at lightening speed while you wait. Or you can call ahead and place your order for pick-up.

The Menu is set each week, offering a choice of several creative, delicious dishes. Paul & Sarah know about FLAVOUR. They always seem to match ingredients that I would never think of, but that complement each other perfectly.

I love that you can order any Sandwich 'on greens' if you're avoiding bread. But their choice of bread are always delicious, too.

Don't miss their cookies! And their fresh-brewed ice teas are awesome.

My husband and I enjoyed a delicious lunch at Real Food in Orange, Virginia this week. And it definitely was much more than "just a turkey sandwich!"

We shared a large sandwich made with special white bread, capacious amounts of fresh ingredients - turkey, lettuce and tomato - covered with a special homemade cream cheese spread. It was SO good! Accompanying this delight was a bowl of creamy potato soup - and, of course, one of their crispy, crunchy chocolate chip cookies. A meal fit for a king (and queen)!

The staff - our greeter and the person who makes the sandwiches - are always so pleasant and cheerful - and the food is ready before you know it. It's a happy place! The line that is always present attests to the popularity of this plain looking little restaurant on the outskirts of Orange, Va.

We always visit Real Food when we are in Orange and never fail to enjoy something unusual and tasty. Try it anytime you are driving by - open only for lunch on weekdays. You'll be so glad you did - and you'll go back again and again to this little gem now that you've discovered it!

I have stopped here for lunch over 20 times and I always leave thinking the same thing...best sandwich in Virginia. The sandwiches continuously change so you never eat the same one. It's a cute little place in a small town with an amazing group of people who run it. It's worth an hour out of your way to eat.

Real Food is only open for lunch and they have a limited menu, but the food is GREAT and the prices are reasonable. It's small - only a few tables - but it's easy to grab something to take away. They usually have a couple of sandwiches, a couple of soups, and a salad or two, but these change regularly and are always creative as well as made with the best ingredients. We love it and make a point of stopping for lunch when we are nearby.
