OUR STORY

Chef and Owner Shawn Hayes moved to Central Virginia in 1995 after meeting and marrying his wife Rita. They opened a small 30 seat café just hours after their daughter Elizabeth was born. Knowing he was in a small market with not a lot of Restaurant choices, Chef Shawn designed a menu and restaurant that was something everybody could enjoy. Over the last 20 plus years he has built the business from a small café to a Cozy Café, Sports Bar, Banquet Rooms and off Site catering, as well as one of Virginia’s best known wedding caterers.

Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Ruckersville, VA, just north of Charlottesville, the Café is open 7 days a week year-round and features a delicious and varied menu. Appetizers, Soups, Salads, Sandwiches & Burgers, Steaks, Seafood, Poultry, Italian Food, Beverages & Full Bar Menu and Desserts. Catering is a full service and budget friendly program that will be sure to please both you and your guests.

Enjoy one of our special all-you-can-eat buffets for Easter, Mother’s Day and Thanksgiving. The Tavern & Sports Bar features 9 jumbo TV’s and 10 receivers for all your favorite sports – including NFL Sunday Ticket. So no matter what you’re looking for, Chef Shawn and his Staff can provide you with anything you can dream up: from a cozy dinner for two, a group of friends out to watch a game over Apps and Drinks, or your Big Special Wedding day at ours or your favorite venue catered with our mobile kitchen.
