With so many pancake restaurants in Williamsburg this is the one to go to. It is so good that even the locals can be found here. There are delicious pancakes, waffles, eggs, omelets, coffee, etc. but they also have a wonderful lunch menu too. Be sure to frequent this friendly place and you will leave with a big smile as...

I would love to come here daily but once a week works too. I love everything I have ever had here but my favorite is their French toast. If you are a local you might want to join the card club. It's an excellent deal.

Prior to the New Year this was a nice local place to have lunch. With the New Year there have been changes by management which have changed this. In the past loyalty card holders got 2 punches on Tuesday. NO MORE! Until the New Year the Baked Chicken Special was a breast, thigh, and leg; Tuesday Jan 3 it was... More

Capitol Pancake is a favorite breakfast spot for us each time we visit Williamsburg. The food is very good. I love the pecan pancakes. The service is always very good. The atmosphere is nice.

Excellent atmosphere, food offerings are tremendously diverse. Our table ordered a variety of dishes, from pancakes to eggs to a steak sandwich, and all were quite satisfied with the food. Servers were very responsive to highly specific orders.

Breakfast and lunch (no dinner) are always tasty, reasonably priced and served with a smile! Greek family owned and operated just blocks from the historic area, this restaurant is a favorite among locals and tourists alike. We never miss a chance to have a family breakfast here. Lunch specials and casual atmosphere lends itself to great business or personal lunches.

Our server Mary was very professional and the owner shared the history of excellent breakfast experience. He was personal and gave so much history of the chair I was sitting in and how it was a place his father enjoyed siting.

The menu was large and the food was tasty, not bland as some breakfast places may tend to be. The food came out quickly, nice and hot. The servers were friendly but you had to get their attention, they didn't keep an eye out. HINT - get coupons in the tourist magazines
