Garnett's Restaurant Review

: Souvenir plates adorn the walls and pickling jars line the shelves at this pie wedge of an eatery, exhibiting the quaint and quirky charm of a favorite great-aunt. But there’s a hipness, too, a contemporary undercurrent, that makes sandwiches like chicken salad and sliced cold meatloaf, which could have come straight from a mid-twentieth century American housewife’s playbook, feel fresh and now. Classic croque monsieur (grilled ham and Gruyère), a smoked salmon plate and a ploughman’s plate add to the eclecticism. Beer and wine are available, but it’s more fun to watch proprietress Kendra Feather, who also owns the vegetarian Ipanema Café near VCU and is a co-owner of The Roosevelt, hand-juice lemons for an effervescent ade. The same menu of soups, sandwiches and salads holds sway all day and night. Preternatural red cardinal cake is a kissin’ cousin to red velvet cake come dessert. Named for the state bird, it’ll set you humming.
