Excellent menu with enough options to please anyone. Breakfast, brunch, and dinner selections available. There's also a full bar. Wait staff are very friendly and good served quickly. Only 10 minutes from the MCV campus of VCU. Definitely worth a visit.

Tarrent's Cafe in the downtown area has been a long time favorite of mine. The service is great and the menu options are endless. One of my favorites is the chicken salad there. It is really the best.

Yes, actually they do. There is a dining private area in the back of the Broad Street restaurant. I believe that the Three Chopt Road location has private dining areas.
