Had to run by the vet up the road, and decided to give this place a try on Saturday. So glad I did! The small dining room was a little more than half full, and I expected to wait a few minutes for my food, but my entree, a cheese steak sub with fries was delivered very quickly! The cheese steak is was one of the best I've had and could compete in the Philly metro area. The fries were delicious, fresh cut, thin, hot, and well seasoned. The breakfast entrees being served at adjacent tables looked equally good, and they were being devoured. I will be back! — Anonymous Reviewer

On Tuesday, June 1, 2010 I had lunch at the Apple Valley Café at 674 North Loudoun Street. I had recently learned of its opening from Wincfood.com, and was prompted to visit it by reading a feature article in The Winchester Star that morning. I used the small off-street parking lot behind the stand-alone building.

It has about a dozen tables. It is open from 6:30 AM to 10:00 PM every day. One other patron was there when I arrived just before noon. By and by he was joined in his corner by friends who filtered in one or two at a time.

Eventually there were half a dozen people, all sitting together in the corner. They appeared to be regular diners, and were greeted by some of the staff who came out of the kitchen to talk to them.

The menu's breakfast items were eggs, waffles, French toast, biscuits and gravy, three-egg omelets, and breakfast sandwiches. It also had a choice of three kinds of home-fried “messes”: vegetable, meat-eaters, and ultimate.

For lunch there were sandwiches, subs, hamburgers, chicken wings, and also New York style pizza and stromboli. For dinner, you could have steak, roast beef, salads, chilis, and soups.

I ordered a Reuben sandwich with potato chips. The large pieces of rye bread made it a very generous sandwich. It came with chips, and a pickle spear and banana peppers on the same platter as the sandwich. The Reuben was good, but the bottom layer became soggy from juice with the pickle and peppers.

I told the waitress that using a side dish for the garnish would eliminate the problem. She promised to mention it to the kitchen, and when I checked out later, the chef said that they would use the extra dish in the future.

I learned that the place had been open about for about two months. The bill came to $9.18 with a Dr. Pepper and the tip. The Apple Valley Cafe is worth another visit, and may be a keeper.

The premises at the southeast corner of Oates Avenue and North Loudoun Street was originally a Donut Castle. Its later occupants included a short-lived Korean place called the Seoul Garden Café, which I didn't try after visiting it, the North Loudoun Diner, which was OK, and the Peckish Caribbean American Restaurant, which my radar never detected.

Breakfast today at Apple Valley Cafe with my wife. She had the french toast and I had the all-meat mess. We shared some biscuits w/sausage gravy. This was an amazing meal! The biscuits were almost cake like and large! The all-meat mess was even too much for me to finish off! The meal was so filling, I missed lunch today and didn't even think about it. What a great local place to grab a fantastic breakfast. Also, the server who is also the owner was super at engaging us with friendly conversation and spot on service with our coffee refills. — Anonymous Reviewer

Was looking for a good local place while in town visiting. Great kid friendly place with good pizza style food. Yummy boardwalk style fries. And the buffalo Stromboli was better than then the steak one — Anonymous Reviewer

We had lunch here a couple of days ago. The chicken salad was wonderful, generous portion, however the chips were terribly stale wih a large black hair across the top of them. My husband's hamburger and fresh cut fries were very good, although the fries could have cooked a few minutes longer - a bit soft. All in all, a good lunch spot, will return. — Anonymous Reviewer

Discovered this little gem about 2 weeks ago when searching for a good breakfast place. Today was my 3rd time back in 2 weeks. The western omelette is absolutely incredible, along with home fries, and French toast. Their homemade pancakes are delicious, and the sweet tea reminds me of my grandma's. I love the service, and the smiles on everyone's faces. The workers are so happy and let my taste other foods on the menu. Absolutely incredible. I've lived in Winchester for over two years and regret that I'm just now finding this place. If you haven't been, you're missing out. — Anonymous Reviewer

Took my kids to the Apple Valley Cafe for lunch today. Plain cheese pizza for them and I got the bacon cheeseburger with a side of their home cut fries. Kids loved the pizza and I thought it was pretty decent, just a little bit greasy. The cheeseburger was very good but not great. The fries were pretty awesome! Service was very good. Overall a very pleasant experience and I plan on returning again to try their breakfast and I also like to try one of their subs. — Anonymous Reviewer

We ate a late lunch on Thursday. The special was already out, so we each ordered the Hamburger special, one with only ketchup, the other with everything. We were starving so we ordered a side of potato salad which we wanted as an appetizer. The potato salad was made fresh and was delicious!!! The hamburgers were large, meaty and fresh. We got an apple fritter to go and it was wonderful too. Owner is very nice and let us try the green tomato pickles he grew and made. A great stop. I can't wait to go back for one of the breakfast specials. A real gem in an original old building in downtown Winchester. — Anonymous Reviewer
