In the immediate term, in light of the current pandemic and the resulting economic impact to the restaurant industry, Richmond on Broad Café will not re-open. Each of the dedicated staff members there, under the strong leadership of Chef Matt Lee, will have opportunities to work on campus in Dining Services. Over the past eight years, Matt and his team have created a loyal following of downtown Richmonders and Spiders alike with high-quality, delicious, fast-casual food in the heart of downtown. From popular staples such as the Blandford sandwich and a grilled cheese, to weekly specials on burgers, salads, and baked potatoes, Richmond on Broad Café has helped rejuvenate the downtown food scene since opening in 2012. We are grateful to the terrific team at Richmond on Broad Café for their work.

The cafe will be closed beginning March 16. We will re-evaluate on April 3 for the potential to re-open on April 6. Stay safe and healthy.

I miss ROB! I'm hungry!
Your crab soup is deelish!!! 😋 How about adding lump crabmeat???
What's up with the $4 cookies????? I purchased a breakfast sandwich this morning and picked up a cookie for my daughter for an after school treat and the cookie cost more than the sandwich. Was there a spike in sugar or chocolate chip prices that I missed??????? Not cool.
If you just can’t live without your daily freshly brewed cup of coffee, then this is the place you’ve been looking for. If you’re also the type of person that genuinely cares about the environment and your place in it, then you should look into Kiss The Ground. It’s a book that’s all about the environment, our impact on it, and what we can do to help. It’s a really easy read and very informative. You can grab it at most bookstores and on amazon: http://amzn.to/2hFJBQF
