A cozy, busy local favourite at the weekend. If you are looking for relaxed, sedate and spacious, this will likely disappoint but if you are looking for a popular location with good food, plenty of character and buzz this could be he place for you. We had an excellent omelette built to spec and an unexpectedly good eggs Benedict, terrific... More

Decided to drop in while wandering around downtown. Pleasant experience. Not very crowded, decent food, decent service. Lacking a bit on the beer selections. Price not terrible and portions were healthy.

The location of this restaurant is ideal; located in a high traffic area. The place is always packed with patrons and it can get pretty crowded. So if you are into a social scene, enjoy meeting people (you almost have to meet people because you sit so close), and like the idea of a cafe-type setting in urban Alexandria..then this... More

I'd been here before, but not for 2 or 3 years, so when family got together on a Saturday for lunch(or maybe breakfast?) I said, let's drive to Old Town and we can park at Table Talk. Great suggestion on my part! The place has been redone fit more people comfortably and the decor is trellis and plant and green... More

My friend and I stopped in here for lunch after a morning shopping spree. We've both lived in Alexandria for decades, but had never eaten here, so we decided to take the plunge. It's much bigger than it looks from the sidewalk and there's plenty of free parking in the lot beside it. We arrived around 1 and were seated... More

While Table Talk Restaurant on Duke St in Old Town Virginia is a favorite with locals, visitors to the area are discovering this small gem thanks to tourist business recommendations. We got a positive 'push' on the place from a Concierge at a nearby hotel. Efficiency seems to be a trademark here. We were warmly welcomed on a blustery Saturday... More

Blue plate meals. Well priced for what you get, but would have preferred half the quanity at half the price.

Went to Table Talk with my friend who lives nearby, and after living in the area for years I am shocked that I hadn't heard of this diner before! The restaurant is extremely small, but has a typical cozy pre-fab diner style. The food is really good diner food, with tremendous portions and the waitresses are just properly grouchy (just...

Come early on Sundays to avoid the after church crowd. A great quick breakfast. If there's a line out the door, don't worry, it moves fast. A reasonable breakfast for Old Town.

Whenever I am in the Old Town area in the am, I make it a point to come here for breakfast. It seems it is always full, but the turnover is very quick. The food is always wonderful. Do get one of the omelettes. Service is fast and professional. There is a reason so many come here...good solid food, great... More
