I first enjoyed Amphora in Vienna, before the Herndon diner was built. Loved the food, and the bakery, too. Now we have both the diner and the bakery right here in Herndon. Terrific, casual dining, with a fat menu of old and new favorites and for variety there are specials including the Pie of the Month. You can get breakfast... More

I was seated right away, and my drink was delivered quickly. Large menu so tough to decide. Settled on the half sandwich and cup of soup. The chicken salad was ok, overall good sandwich. The tomato florentine soup was very good. Desserts looked really good, I'll probably be back for breakfast. Good place!

I think that the optimal time to visit this restaurant is mid-afternoon as there was. I one there around 3:30pm when I swung by to grab an early to-go dinner (also I hadn't really had lunch). I was quick to get my meal and was soon off. I ordered the Mediterranean Wrap with mashed potatoes. The wrap was in a... More

Great menu, venue, Service and quality of food. Very clean and well organized restaurant. I don't believe you'll find a better value in the DC metro area for breakfast

We have dined at Amphora numerous times and it is consistently excellent. Very large menu. There is something for everyone. Breakfasts are particularly good. There is a wide selection of sandwiches. I have enjoyed every one I tried.

Stopped here for breakfast before heading out of town. We were quickly seated and our drinks served. My son had an omelette and my hubby and I had the 2 eggs with ham. The meals came with delicious home fries and home made toast. Ample servings. If we are ever in this area again, we'll stop for dinner.

Good diner type place with a huge selection of foods for any meal but particularly breakfast. Great service. Especially good for all members of the family. Moderately priced.

It's hard to ruin a turkey sandwich & clam chowder but it was so substandard. Save your money, go to Panera instead. Service is slow, prices are average.

This place has some of the best pastries/cakes and pies anywhere. Although it's on the pricey side it's very good. The menu is very extensive and takes several minutes to look over. The service and everything is first class.
