We have been once, off-season on a Sunday, and the place was mobbed, deservedly. The coffee ran out, we waited 20 minutes for service and 40 minutes fir food, but it was worth the wait.

Your visit to Onancock, Virginia would not be complete without a leisurely breakfast at Janet's Onancock General Store & Café. The decor is bright, sunny and red! Even on a dull rainy morning, the whole café is bright and cheerful! Green Mountain coffee is served piping hot at a self-serve counter in real mugs. An array of eggs, oatmeal, French... More

Janet's is the kind of place that makes you feel like you're a regular, even if it's your first time there. My friends and I stop there every year to and from the beach. The staff is friendly and welcoming. Janet herself always stops to shoot the breeze with us and pick ups right where we left off. The food... More

We went for lunch. We had come to Onancock to go to Mallards, only to find it closed for a private event. Got a recommendation from a local for Janet's, and couldn't have been happier. It's casual, order at the counter, then food brought to your table. Obviously a favorite with locals, many of whom seemed to know each other.... More

If you do not eat breakfast or don't like breakfasts, then do not read this! With out a doubt the best breakfast restaurant in the town. All you have to do is watch the locals and see this is the place to get that early morning start. Very good!

Had breakfast at Janet's. The western complete was great. My wife had the breakfast burrito, which she said was delicious. Not fancy, but worth the stop.

After touring the very interesting 200 year old Ker House, we asked for a recommendation for lunch. What a great recommendation - for Janet's Café! We ordered the Cuban Sandwich, and the Reuben, to which Janet responded, "How did you know to order the two best things on the menu?" And were they great! Fresh, loaded, delicious, some of the...
