Carrot Tree Kitchens at the Dale House Café will be open 11 am - 4:30 pm seven days a week.
The Dale House Café has reopened its doors welcoming Carrot Tree Kitchens to Historic Jamestowne. Visitors can now enjoy Carrot Tree's buttermilk ham biscuits, homemade meatloaf, BBQ, and hummus wrap along with a variety of scrumptious sandwiches, soups, salads, and desserts. Stop by and enjoy lunch or a piece of Carrot Tree's famous carrot cake on the banks of the James River during your next visit to the island.
The Dale House was known as the Relic House when it was first built in the early 20th century, housing displays of the artifacts unearthed by the ladies of the APVA and others. Later it served as a pottery demonstration area and museum store, before becoming the headquarters for the Jamestown Rediscovery project. In spite of its small footprint, the Dale House housed all functions of the Rediscovery project for several years, including collections storage, conservation, staff office space, and exhibit space.
Plan to enjoy lunch at the Dale House Café -- along with the best view of the James River for miles in either direction!
