Breakfast at the Chickahominy House is always great. Food is top notch, atmosphere is just want you'd expect in Williamsburg, VA and the service is great. I'm a big fan of the Plantation Breakfast, but everything is great.

Looks like you got two good sets of directions. There is also parking on the side street. It is a busy place and only open until about 3 p.m. so don't go late.
