Our Favorite Brunch Places
Charlottesville is definitely a town for foodies!! Start your day right with an amazing breakfast/brunch, why not even have breakfast for lunch.
One of Cville's most popular brunch places near the downtown mall- there's sometimes a wait, but it's worth it.

This is another one my favorite brunch/lunch spot. Great lattes, amazing food. Pastries are out of this world. Think authentic pain au chocolat, almond croissants... not light in calories, but definitely worth it.

A Charlottesville tradition. You'll get a great breakfast/brunch here for a reasonable price, plus you don't have the waits you will have at the other brunch places because it's bigger. You can sit outside on the patio on the downtown mall and people watch, or your can sit inside in their recently renovated (but with a cool diner feel) restaurant. Park in the East Market Street Garage

Best Lunch Spots on the Downtown Mall
You won't want to miss an afternoon stroll on the downtown mall- and you should eat lunch at one of the mall's restaurants and people watch as you do.
The food here is solid- and it's best for lunch, when you get all their yummy offerings at lunch prices. Sit on the patio with a drink and people watch.

This place is delicious and fun. Huge booths, great with kids. Grass fed burgers, lots of choices, huge baskets of fries (regular or sweet potato) that are amazing. Home made ketchup. Extensive beer list. There are TVs here with every imaginable sport playing, so you can sit at the bar to watch- but it's not blaring and won't interrupt you if you're not a sports (or TV) fan.

Really good, really healthy. Easy to grab a quick lunch here that you'll feel smug and good about it.

I love this place as their are so many unique choices by the slice. Everyone will find their favorite slice or maybe two. Take the kids along and let them wander on the mall (if they're old enough and there are no cars, so it's safe)

Bodo's Bagels

Local Lunch/Dinner Spots We Love
Dine, Carry Out, GrubHub or DoorDash
This restaurant will not disappoint as it is inspired not only by the simplicity of the South American “green” Rotisserie & Grill but also by the simple approach that their ancestors brought to cuisine. At Al Carbon they honor their local broiler chickens & meats by simply allowing the coal-fired flame to massage-in the secret spices while drawing-out it’s natural flavor.

This is our favorite Thai Cuisine in Charlottesville. They do have a sit down location on East Market Street but parking can be tricky. Uber may be your best choice. GrubHub deliver and stay in!!

This is a great place to go with kids that’s easy access and parking. They have an extensive beer menu and good food in a very open, fun space. There’s lots of outdoor space for kids to run around and see things in the art park and there is an outdoor patio. Win, win, win.

If you’ve got kids who are super into American history (or if you are) and if you like Parker House rolls and people in Betty Ross caps, then you will love this place. Otherwise, not so much. But it’s historic, and it’s an experience, and you should do it once. It’s fun and it’s part of the whole Thomas-Jefferson-worship thing we’ve got going on in this town. You’ll be served fried chicken and mashed potatoes and other southern favorites family-style by servers in period costume. The structure itself is pretty and historic, and the little stores are cute. Actually, I started writing this description with lots of snark, but now I kind of want to go there today with my kids. It’s that kind of place.

This is our favorite Indian cuisine!! The food is on point. Try the lunch buffet and then you can sample many of their delicious dishes. I absolutely love the cauliflower appetizer dish. This won't disappoint your palate

Best Dinner Spots on the Downtown Mall
Our favorite places to eat on our favorite walkable pedestrian mall. The downtown mall is one of Cville's treasures, and is definitely worth a visit- whether to shop in the boutiques, bar hop, or eat lunch or dinner.
We absolutely love this place. It's tucked away down an alley (it's there, I promise you!) so it feels like a 1920's speakeasy. Go up the stairs into the coolest place in Cville. The food will never disappoint. Sit at the bar and watch the bartenders work their magic in vintage crystal glasses. It's an experience worth having.

Belmont Lunch/Dinner
The Belmont neighborhood dates back to Charlottesville’s earliest days. It has been revitalized with a great atmosphere and many options for local dinning.
This is one of our favorite spots- it's a pizza place, but that title doesn't do Lampo justice. The pizza is light, sophisticated, and really interesting (you cut it with scissors, which just adds to the joy of eating it!), the salads are amazing, and the appetizers are interesting, delicious, and inventive. This is definitely a spot you should visit during your stay... but it's small, popular, and they don't take reservations. I'd recommend going for lunch, and getting there when it opens at 11, or arriving right at 5 for dinner.

Yum, yum, yum. Light, sophisticated Italian- with an amazing wine list. Widely considered one of Charlottesville's best restaurants. Doesn't take reservations and gets crowded, so go early for dinner, or put your name in and head to the patio at Mas for a pre-dinner drink.
