Richmond (Southside) weekday breakfast/brunch?

Would love to find a place to have a good midmorning meal on a weekday in the Midlothian area. Any ideas? Thank you!

  1. Cafe Caturra on Alverser.

    There's also Belle & Kitchen Kuisine in the Ukrops Stony Point plaza, but I am not sure when they open.

    I'm totally blanking on a good place to get a big breakfast in those parts. We went to the Diner (whose name escapes me) at the Shops at Bellgrade once. Yeah, once was enough.

    I'll keep thinking...

      Belle Kuisine isn't open for breakfast. There is a place on Midlothian (near Casa Grande) called American Diner which has gotten some good press, but I have never been there. River City Diner stinks (that's the one in Bellgrade you were referring to). I'd go with the Cafe Caturra recommendation also. On the Hull Street end of Midlothian, the picks are even slimmer...honestly Panera Bread is about as good as it gets as far as I have found.

    2. The Brickhouse Diner, in the village of Midlothian, was ok the one time I went there (had lunch). That was a couple of years ago, though. But it always has a parking lot full of cars at breakfast time.

      1. Paradise Diner in Stratford Hills. Haven't tried it, but have heard it's great for diner fare.
