My wife and I discovered the Dumfries Cafe when we moved into the area around 2008. We've been regulars ever since. They serve no nonsense breakfast and lunch. The dining room is small, but comfortable and the staff are all very friendly. I am an egg snob and I think their eggs are great. It is one of the few... More

Have been eating breakfast here perodically for the past 15 years. It is a diner and is patronized by the Virginia State Police, local police, fire department and we locals. Superb for breakfast....

The atmosphere is friendly, service is great (food comes quickly and hot), timely refills on coffee, the food well prepared and tasty. A place even the state troopers frequent. A local establishment worth considering for a great breakfast.

With amushy roll, 4 tablespoons of steak & cheese the word Philly should not be used. This is maybe 1/4 of 1/2 of a Steve's, Pat's, Leo's, Delasandro's, Sonny's - I've eaten quite a few of these... The fries were probably frozen but ok. My advice forget the steak & cheese...

I truly enjoy going here, I did have my order to go because a family came in that didn't know how to disciplin their children and I was in no mood for screaming children at 8am! I completely forgot they offer potatoes with their breakfasts. I LOATHE potatoes, but I had a migraine and was starving. Cats and I enjoyed... More

We went in here based on the online reviews. The food was great....The only complaint...my boyfriend left hungry. We both ordered sandwiches and fries.....my plate was overflowing but for some reason his plate was half empty.

This diner is located at the place where the north and southbound roads merge in Dumfries. It's a small place, and only is open from about 7:30 to 2:00, so you will only be able to have breakfast or lunch there. The food is good, I especially like their beef vegetable soup, though I really haven't been disappointed with anything... More

I liked it. Basic breakfast cafe serving good, fresh breakfast. Happy Face. Was a little busy but the service was quick anyway, busy because they must be popular with the local military.
