Question featured on Jeopardy: “The Strawberry Street Cafe in this Virginia capital is famous for its bathtub salad bar.” Answer: “What is Richmond?” (Yep, this cafÃ© was actually a question on Jeopardy in the ‘90s.)
Located in the Fan neighborhood — and sitting just minutes from Monument Avenue — on a street so beautiful at certain times of the year that it looks like a movie set (grab a window seat in the spring and fall), this relaxing upscale restaurant serves fabulous nachos, salads, seafood tacos, gourmet grilled cheese and you get the picture. Desserts — totally worth your time — include a chocolate covered cheese cake and a donut ice cream sandwich to name just two. The old-fashioned bathtub brims with fresh veggies, fruits, yogurts, hummus, prepared salads and homemade soups.
Sunday brunch is famous with locals and includes a bathtub buffet that’s loaded in brunch-treats and a la carte items like a Belgium waffle, omelets, and eggs Benedict.
