REVIEWS OF Smithfield Gourmet Bakery and Cafe IN Virginia

James Baker

Had the Smithfield Packer. It was terribly dry. No dressing and not enough coleslaw to taste. Of course, the bread pudding was delicious.

dawn Schneider

A big thank you for putting together a box of pastries for our out of town guests.

Ron Sprouse

Delores Edwards

Shirley Osborn

Cheryl Eure

Thomas Barnett

I would stick to the baked goods only. The restaurant is looking pretty dingy. You can't help but notice the dirty vents above your head and wonder what is happening in the kitchen while you wait for your food.

Khadara Roberts

Keith Pemberton

Great place for breakfast fresh breads and great service

Mike Hockett

Fantastic atmosphere, great service and very tasty food! Seasoning is glaringly missing in Smithfield as a whole, BUT not here! Food was seasoned to perfection. Had breakfast here as part of our stay at the Smithfield Inn and maybe one of our favorite parts of our stay. Sunday was a true treat with their Smithfield Hash and OMG Smithfield Benedict Sliders with crab. Put away the salt and pepper. They do it right. The cook at the Inn could learn a thing or two from this cook. By far, one of our best meals in All of Smithfield!

Lisa Wilt

Excellent food and service, delicious pastries

Reynold Jordan

Great food.... sandwich to die for muffins and cake too!

Sally Jo Ligocki

Yummy! Wish I lived closer. Will visit again when we return to Smithfield.

Bonnie Beerbower

Hello just spent lovely morning in Smithfield. Sat morning mkt, great bakery on main st. Delicious lunch at Gourmet Cafe. Excellent seafood crepe and stopped a ice cream shop. Lovely town definitely worth a visit.

Ryan Roettges

Portion size was out of this world!!!

Mary Craig

I've had crepes on the French side of St. Martin and in Paris, but I've never had a crepe better than the Crepe du Jour at Smithfield Bakery.

Susan Fitch

Had a delightful breakfast with friends on Sunday. Great service and we were surrounded by assorted cupcakes and breads. I had the biggest pancakes ever seen, delicious and so was the coffee!


Absolutely the best sandwiches in the area!!! Go here!!

Christie Schwenk

Excellent service, delicious food at a reasonable price. Smithfield is charming!

Ana Montiel

Rebecca Murray

I've never posted a review before, and am not usually one who outwardly complains. That said, this place is extremely overrated. I was there for the first time this past week and while the street it is on is adorable, this restaurant (which I tried based on other reviews) was a complete let down! The bread my sandwich was on was good, but that was about all. My sandwich was slopped together and drowning in sauce. The cakes looked good, but had a chemical-like after taste (similar to the after taste from a Walmart bought cake). There really was nothing "gourmet" about this cafe.

Jamie Colonna

The food was delicious. Everyone enjoyed themselves at the Bridal Luncheon we had there.

Claudio Valtolina

Ottimo posto per il pranzo, con vasta scelta tra hamburger, insalate e specialità di granchio. servizio ottimo ma non velocissimo, non ha posteggio privato ma si trova nelle vicinanze

Kay Cooney

We had an amazing lunch here, our server Jeremy was beyond awesome! We had their Brunswick Stew and sandwiches, I understand they had a rush before we got here, but having sat here thru a meal and dessert, I must say, we had an amazing time and great service! Before we left, our server even brought us a to go cup of our beverages!

Randal Anthony

Excellent choice for lunch when visiting Smithfield.

thebestever D

Love love love the place the best soup n sandwiches

Ashley Rice

Went for breakfast and was not disappointed. Customer service was fine (she was busy and it looked like she was by herself). Tried the french toast, with bacon on the side and got alot for the price. So yummy! Picked some goodies out to take home for my people, they all said they were tasty.

Matt Keith

Absolutely outstanding. I had the 2 egg breakfast. Came with thick slices of bacon and perfectly cooked hash browns. Just great. Price was good too with a quaint little atmosphere. I highly recommend it!

Tom Jowers

Oh if you're from out of town and want the experience of a local favorite, this is the place to try. Very good, very reasonable, and very nice.

Sandy Schlaudecker

Great food great service great location. One of my favorite restaurants in Smithfield. Always busy and they open at 8 o'clock on Sunday so you can get your fix on sweets. Also great breakfast with eggs and lunches with sandwiches and soups. They always have Brunswick stew which is delicious.

Vincent Sammich

You wont be disappointed. Excellent food and great service.

Sabine Bormann

Essen war in Ordnung - für das Gebotene meiner Meinung nach zu teuer -

Daniel Messick

Very good service! Even at an odd time and right before closing. The food was cooked very promptly and tasted great: we had the daily special of tilapia pasta and olives and a bowl of super delicious Brunswick stew paired with tomato basil bread. Photo attached of stew and bread.

Stacy Pauley

The best!!

Cliff Perkinson

In my opinion the best cakes,pies and shrimp and grits ever!!!!!!!

Ruty Lo

Perfect family date night

Billy Webb

Love the sandwiches

Carlotte Clegane

My husband and I ate here today. It was so awful I actually created a google account just so I could warn the world. I've lived and traveled all over Europe. I have eaten some nasty food, but never in the U.S. have I eaten food that was literally so bad I couldn't eat it. I ordered a sandwich and the ham was ALL fat. There was no meat to be seen. My husband had "chips" that were completely burned. When we complained, they did nothing. AWFUL experience. Save yourself the trouble and go to one of the many wonderful restaurants of Smithfield, like the place across the street or the Smithfield Inn. Those are wonderful.

Michael Ruehrwein

Andy McLaughlin

Ryan Cere

Nick Nack

Vincent Duvall

We had such a great time filming outside this Bakery. I took some good pastries home with me. I mean very good. Especially this custard chocolate donut. The service was friendly. Everyone was very nice. And it was so pleasant sitting inside and visiting with other folks.Ben Franklin even helped us with snacks out front. I'll be stopping back by on my day off.

Cindy Lynn Smith

Excellent place to eat. If you are ever in this part of the country, do stop in and see these people! We had lunch there; the chicken salad was good, the strawberry cake that was four layers was better! It was big enough to split with the hubby so be careful if you order two slices unless you want to take one with ya!

Edy Hirst

Fries were burnt. Well done burger was med rare. Water was soapy tasting. Service was bad. Never going back!!!

Wade Daffinee

Nice location and good food.

Richard P

The food was decent, but the service was cool and indifferent. It wasn't just our server, but the 2 or 3 people with whom we interacted. The busgirl (?) was great. The tables had the bleach of smell, but I don't really count that as a negative, especially in the cold & flu season.

Todd Schulz

I like the goodies here, but it seems it was better in the past. If you would like a re do, please contact me and I will come back and rate you again. I would like to be fair.

Jerry Hasty

Good sandwiches, salads and desserts.

Christina Howell

Laura Jones

Leftie Owens

Very quiet and has a nice, relaxing atmosphere. Had brunch on a Sunday afternoon, and service didn't take long

Rebecca Saxon

Brought relatives from out of state today they were busy at 2 o'clock we did not get our food until 245 our waitress dropped off our drinks after taking our order never came back had to flag down other waitresses for refills on drinks and condiments. There was a woman working there who was running around fussing about not wanting to be working on the floor and griping about when she was going to get off work in front of all of the customers and being very rude and disrespectful. The crab cakes were cold in the middle barely held together and the fries were cold and limp. The only good thing about this experience was leaving. This will no longer be our go to when bringing family and friends into our town.

teresa froemel

cinnamon rolls and cranberry orange muffins are delish. will definitely return and try something else . great little place with an awesome Baker!!

Katie Kopin

marie spruill

Friendly staff and delicious food...especially the tomato basil bread..yummy.

Eric Leaman

I have eaten at the SGBandC regularly since I moved to Smithfield 10 years ago. The food is GREAT and the owner, Carolyn, is always friendly and helpful. Recently I had my wife's 50th birthday party there and it was so well done people are still talking about it.

sam iam

What a great place! The chicken salad sandwich is out of this world. Professional staff and some of the best sweets Smithfield has to offer.

John Mills-Hearne

Fantastic food, service and atmosphere. We ordered the fried tomato caprese, rueben and Philly cheese.

Julie McGonagle

Awesome food....always great

Mike W

Fresh pastry at very reasonable prices

Dave Gilmore

Great for Sunday after church, somewhat limited menu on Sun but good choices. Very enjoyable experience!

Gloria Lewis

Ordered a chicken salad sandwich which was very good. Onion rings were like getting a mouthful of grease. Couldnt eat them. Hubby had a slice of apple pie which was not that great. Canned pie filling and not homemade crust. Disappointing.

Niki Koger

It was great

John Delprincipe

GF and I love this little place. Smithfield is our "get out of HR" spot!

Diane Parsons

Hood food

Chris Nycum

This place is a great place to stop for lunch. We ordered the chicken salad sandwich and the Windsor Castle which is basically a turkey sandwich with cheddar, caramelized onion and honey mustard. Both were huge and very good. The bread was almost and inch thick! The kids had the pancake and bacon kids meal which they loved. I would give 5 stars but only chips for a side is kind of a downer when you are paying $9+ for a sandwich.

Dennis Rhoads


Bridget Fain

Best food ever! All there food is homemade at the resturaunt. I got there Reuben and the bread, salad dressing and Smithfield corn beef all made there. Absolutely delicious. The prices where great and the staff where very friendly and fast. Loved loved this place. Definerly stop here and try the Smithfield ham and see some of the history behind it.

I would not recommend eating here at all. The menu has very little variety and the food is not that good.

Mark Campbell

Food is very good and nice atmosphere. Service was good. Servings are filling. Just had breakfast, frenchtoast, very good.

Dungeon Dwellers

Carol Hines

Absolutely delicious !

Jackson Livanec

I've been here a handful of times and have only had a bad experience once. The restaurant had an average amount of traffic, but there appeared to be only one waitress for the entire facility. The wait for our food was incredibly long, and it was cold when it got to us. I fault the management for understaffing the restaurant to the point where even when the wait staff are doing their best (and going above and beyond helping every table), people are not being served in a timely manner. It's worth noting that apart from this single experience, I've consistently had fantastic service and delicious, high quality food. The toast selection is incredible and the meats are clearly local to Smithfield.

Melissa Matton

We stopped in here for a quick lunch before a wedding. The Sunday special was excellent and well prepared. The coffee was their own blend and was very good. Our waitress was attentive and very nice. The only disappointment.. we could not try the pastries and cakes before the wedding. We did take bakery treats home for our teenagers. They approved.

john white

Quaint, rustic, small town feel that I love. The taste of a 5 star bakery. The staff was very friendly & happy to help. We didn't have a full meal, just a dessert. It was great after spending some time walking the downtown district.

thomas wilson

The smithfield hash was amazing and not too expensive

Billy Boone Jr

Great place to buy their really good pasteries

Rachael Silhan

I love this place! Excellent service, fresh excellent food and very clean. Great prices. I will be back.

Nichole Leighton

Staff waa very friendly and inviting. The food came out quickly and the portions were very abundant. Great place to enjoy breakfast.

Sharon Boudreau

This is a lovely spot for a bite any day of the week. Our party of 12 was attended to efficiently and the food was so good. Definitely a place I will visit again.

Matthew Newton

Danny Rufo

sarah flack

Great breakfast and dessert stop. Prices are ao low for the amount of food you get

Johanna Arocho

Awesome bread and desserts!

miranda wiebusch

great sandwiches

Nikki Wilson

Jim Brickett

This place had awesome food! Great sandwiches and appetizers and soups etc. Breads are made here and are great! It has a gourmet flair on the specials. Great baked goods too. I love to come here any time I get in the area.

Roberta P

Raymond Berenyi

Would have been better if they offered another type of bread like what or whole grain, for the egg and cheese bacon sandwitch other wise it was delicious

Carol Dugger

Great breakfast, friendly staff, cute building and decorations.

Jennifer Dreps

Robin Kemether

Great food and service. Sandwiches were so tasty. Had to visit the bakery on the way out. Will def visit again.

Ashley Barish

Angela Smith

The food and service is always good.

James Bonney

The bakery clearly takes pride in their food. I've eaten there several times and have always enjoyed it (the only exception was the blackened chicken wasn't as good as the other dishes I've had). On Friday nights, they put on an awesome dinner where you go above the bakery, formerly an apartment, and enjoy the greatest meal in the Smithfield area. Highly recommend the evening excursion, but even during the day its great

Tom Farless

Delicious food

Mariane Clarkson

Lunch was great and then after shopping we went back for desserts. All was large and satisfying.

Judy Marsh Adams

Sunday brunch is the best

chris chambers

Great Breakfast

Junior White

You have to go here and check it out... Ham is very salty though.. But I guess that is why it is country ham.

Dean Blair

Great Sunday Brunch. Highly recomend the eggs, crab meat, and ham Bennidict.

Alison McCombs

Oh boy, I love this place. I love everything about it but I especially love the hot chocolate (served in a cute little glass with whipped cream) and that amazing Chicken Salad Sandwich (served on house-made rye for me that's about 2 inches thick) with house-made warm fries. YUMMMM. I dream about this folks, seriously. I've had a few different things inside and they are all good and fresh and homemade. They bake breads you can eat inside as well as purchase to take home, they make fresh pies and cakes and cookies and cupcakes and yummies which I normally try to abstain from but every now and then you have to treat yourself, and they are delicious. The staff are welcoming and friendly and treat you like you are family. I like to sit outside on warm sunny days and people-watch in their little bistro tables out front. Pet friendly and people friendly - this is a great place.
