Café at Monticello

The Café at Monticello, in the Thomas Jefferson Visitor Center, courtyard level, is a comfortable, convenient place to enjoy lunch, a snack or a beverage.

The menu includes sandwiches, salads, pastries, kid-friendly options, and hot and cold drinks.  Groups can order box lunches in advance.

At various times throughout the year, the menu features seasonal items made with produce grown in Jefferson's restored vegetable garden.

The Café is open daily year-round, with indoor seating for 24 and outdoor seating for 70 on the Café Terrace and Woodland Terrace, a wooden deck offering views of the surrounding forest.

Hi there, am planning to visit in June but just checking if you have gluten free choices available in the cafe or should I bring my own food...I am celiac.

Ros, The cafe does have some GF options. But I would recommend calling them beforehand at (434) 296-9255.

Did you know that Monticello has a full service cafe onsite, at the Thomas Jefferson Visitor Center? Visitors can enjoy lunch, coffee, or just grab a snack. School groups or tour groups can also get boxed lunches catered by the cafe. In addition, there is indoor and outdoor seating. This is a great amenity for visitors, as there are no other fast food type restaurants on the mountaintop.
