Our family of 5 stopped into the Lizard Cafe after touring the battleship for a bite to eat. So glad we did! Wonderful, creative food, lots of vegetarian options, awesome sweet potato biscuits and the nicest staff ever. Stop in - you won't be disappointed!

With the modern introduction of e-books and commercial-type stores, like Barnes & Nobles, the old fashion feel of a bookstore is fading. Although Prince Books & Coffeehouse may seem small, it is perfect for an independent bookstore. The shelves were arranged in an "easy-to-find" manner...More

I was really there more for the bookstore, but I had a cup of coffee and saw lunch being served. I like visiting and supporting the few local bookstores that are still around. If you find yourself in downtown Norfolk, skip the Starbucks this time...More
