We loved starting our day at this cafe when we were staying nearby at an Airbnb house that we had rented - we would walk here each morning to begin our day with a cappucino. Loved the atmosphere. It was always busy - a sign...More

Yummy food and great coffee. We stopped for a quick bite on our way out of town and this didn’t disappoint. Seating was a little cramped, but service was great.

Are you in a rush? Go to Starbucks. Do you want delicious coffee and vegan croissants, cookies, muffins, bagels with tofutti spread? Then you may need to check this place out. We go to the location in Scott's Addition (1719 SUMMIT AVENUE, RICHMOND, VA 23230)...More

Went here with my daughter for breakfast. Service was efficient, and our meals were prepared pretty quickly. My daughter had a vegan bagel sandwich, which looked generous. I had an egg, bacon and cheese sandwich, which honestly was tiny. It was fine, just nothing special.

The coffee? Excellent. The atmosphere? A bunch of 14-17 year old kids that sort of loiter/block the doorways. The parking? It made it almost too difficult to enter/leave. Limited small spots and only enough room to pull in or back out.

Great Coffee and limited selection of pastries and delicious breakfast sandwiches. A couple different seating options and can get full during peak morning rush and/or during nice weather days.

They are one of the few places in Richmond you can get a delicious vegan breakfast sandwich. Also the brown sugar latte is delish!

I discovered the lamplighter during a scavenger hunt and since then I have always gone there to have some one on one outdoor meetings! Located near the Virginia Commonwealth University, the Lamplighter is a unique and quite place that gives enough inspiration to shift ones...More
