We have a lot of power lunches and meetings at the hospital. Homemades by Suzanne is a huge favorite by most companies. Highly recommend the chicken salad or the ham sandwiches. Then again, my tastebuds and not necessarily yours. Enjoy!

Clean, friendly atmosphere. Great comfort food menu for breakfast and lunch. Crab cakes are wonderful. Desserts are to die for and should be shared. Not the time or place to count calories though.

Thank you, Fred, for having lunch with us and then for taking the time to send in a review. Sometimes people will order a dessert to share and one of them will change their minds after the first bite. We love that. Hope you will stop in often. Ashland is a friendly place.

All the local Ladies Who Lunch (and the Fellas who join them) like to eat here. Handmade yeast rolls, quiche, chicken and tuna salads, deviled eggs, fruit and pasta salads, hot soup....recipes from several Grandmas are part of the menu here. Desserts are a special treat.

I love to eat lunch at Homemades by Suzanne but have hesitated to take my granddaughter due to her gluten intolerance.

Wow, if you loved your grandmas food, then this is the place for you. The absolute best is the shrimp salad sandwich, and it on homemade rolls too. Can't miss out on all the homemade food here.

"Grandmas Food" ~~ That is a great compliment. My Gran was a best-ever cook especially blackberry rolls and baked chicken. You are right...the shrimp salad on our freshly baked roll is delish.

This is an interesting place. The setup is unusual requiring some knowledge about ordering and where to order. Once picked up and paid for at another station, there is room to sit and enjoy lunch. It is in a great location across the street from Randolph-Macon College. When my wife and I travel north, we generally end up in this... More

Thank you, Hank, for the great review. The Crab Quiche is the most popular of all six that we offer, and it is the time of year for good soup. Thanks for being such a good customer. I know you love Ashland as much as we do, and love to share it with travelers. Happy New Year, Suzanne More

Description
Serving house-made foods for 35 years something like Gran made in her kitchen. Bread for sandwiches is baked every morning. Enjoy a turkey roll with sliced turkey roasted in our ovens and a country ham sandwich that was voted one of the best in Virginia by USA Today. The Crab Cake Sandwich is good too or you can enjoy the best-ever shrimp salad and tuna salad. Vernell bakes deep dish pies daily and the jumbo cookie case is full of selections. Lots of sides to choose from ~~ Branden's Potato Salad, Roslyn's spaghetti salad, cucumber & tomato, black-eyed pea vinaigrette, Christine's deviled eggs etc. etc. Located on the railroad tracks in the middle of historic Victorian Ashland, you can watch the freight and passenger trains on their way north and south. You will be welcomed and treated very well.+
