In the heart of downtown Culpeper, Virginia we found Frost Cafe a vintage diner serving all your favorite comfort foods.
Ample booth and counter seating means limited wait times even during peak periods like Saturday lunch.
I saw Corn Beef Hash on the menu and had to try it. I was not disappointed; it was really good real corn beef hash. It pushed the limit of my personal salt tolerance but that would not keep me from ordering it again. It has been so long since I have had corn beef hash I forgot how good it can be. Memories of getting dismal hash so many times have kept me from ordering it. The eggs were eggs and the roll was nice and warm. I would have liked the bacon to be crisper.
My wife was happy with the fried catfish she ordered. The mashed potatoes and gravy could have used more flavor but her beets were tasty.
Our server Emily was great and gave us some helpful menu suggestions. The restaurant is a large space that absorbs noise and keeps the level low. Culpeper has some great restaurants like Foti’s and It’s About Thyme, but if you just want a quick solid lunch stop in to Frost Cafe. Bring cash, they don’t accept credit cards. There is an ATM conveniently located next to the cash register if you forget so you don’t have to wash dishes.
