Basic Necessities

A café, wine and cheese shop, we are nestled in the Rockfish Valley of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Nellysford, Virginia. Since 1997 we have been offering "a taste of Europe in the Blue Ridge Mountains." We specialize in great wines at affordable prices, imported cheeses, fresh baked bread, delicious meals, and a friendly atmosphere. Tuesday through Saturday we welcome locals, skiers, and anyone who happens to be exploring Nelson Country to come for a relaxing lunch, a glass of wine, or afternoon tea. We feature delicious and innovative soups, our big house salad, and seasonal specialties. Reservations are advised for our Friday and Saturday night dinners where guests enjoy thoughtfully prepared food and musical entertainment. Sundays we offer brunch from 10-3 and frequently have a harpist during the middle of the day.
