Wraps and soups here were excellent. Service quick. However, seating is limited, so I suggest you arrive early or late for lunch. Nice cookie and desert selection. Wish they were open for dinner!

We needed a light meal desperately and an ovetwhelming need for ice coffee after touring the Yorktown Battlefield. We found the Carrot Tree and their fabulous selections of sandwiches, homemade soups and gazspachos. The carrot cake is incomparable. Go there you will not be disappointed.

Consistently great meals here. Always some interesting choices on the menu. Even better, you can get an array of tasty desserts. My favorite dessert is the Carrot Cake.

Two friends and I are planning to spend a few days in the Jamestown/Yorktown area in mid-September. Does your location offer a mid-week High Tea and, if so, when should we make a reservation? Thank you.

Response from Mary A | Reviewed this property |
The Hornsby House Inn in Yorktown may offer something like that.
Are reservations taken for weekday lunch? Is there a minimum number of guests required to make a reservation?

Reservations are not taken - it's on a first-come, first served basis. They will work with you if you have a large party. The inside is very small, so hopefully if the weather is nice, outside seating would be available... More
