Moore Street Cafe
Moore Street Café’s signature teal awnings can be spotted within steps of the Richmond baseball diamond; its brick façade shrouds a diverse clientele of regulars who have lunched in the same spot for decades. As Richmond Times Dispatch reporter Lisa Antonelli Bacon reports, the joint is a quintessential American diner, with “a quiet location just off a main thoroughfare. . . a steady, friendly clientele, [and] a staff that loves coming to work.” The owners—Tom Stutzman and his mother Alice—bought the established café in 1999, fulfilling their lifelong dream of owning a restaurant and ordering industrial-size tubs of ketchup. The pair packs its menu with hearty egg and omelet breakfasts, specialty sandwiches, and hand-pressed burgers. Their soup and dessert selections are homemade daily.
