Casual, simple food in a relaxed atmosphere. The wine shop/candy counter is a nice addition. Food is served quickly. I highly recommend the Veggie Burger Olè wrap.

I stopped in for a quick lunch and discovered that the Pampered Palate also carried bottles of my favorite hard to find Virginia sparkling wine. Good salad and soup, plus wine to take home. A win/win.

This small eatery is located in the heart of pretty downtown Staunton (with lots of one-way streets), just a short distance from the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library. There is seating on the first floor and also on the second floor but it is up a very narrow staircase, where restrooms are located. It was quite busy when we were there... More

This cafe has a beautiful, light-filled upstairs that I enjoyed. It was difficult to choose what to eat because so many of their light deli lunch options sounded delicious. What we ended up picking was a good choice and we enjoyed our lunch very much!

Sandwiches are fine if not substantial, matched with what taste like chips from a bag of Lay's. Similar sad pickle. Service is prompt and polite. Fine if you're just looking for a meal.

Walking into The Pampered Palate is like stepping into a little cafe in Europe. It is simple, but inviting. The food is always good with daily specials and a regular menu. Many of the menu items are named after local places. The soups and salads are especially appealing. You can find just the right thing if you are a vegetarian... More

Great lunch fare. Fresh food it would have been trendy food for the early 80's ( quiche and amazing baked potato assortment of toppings) now it feels comforting for a person that was a teenager in the 80's regardless everything is fresh and delicious and the wait staff bring the fun and hip-ness to this place!
