Our real estate agents love Richmond for a lot of reasons—the culture, the nightlife, the music, the rich history, and scenic beauty—but at the end of the day, the thing that might stand out the most is the food. With that in mind, let's all take a tour of some of the Richmond area's best brunch spots in honor of National Waffle Week!

  5. Boychiks Deli - 4024 Cox Rd, Glen Allen, VA 23060
    It's as if an old school New York-style deli somehow wandered its way south, made it to Virginia, and decided to stay. Family owned and operated since 1990, Boychiks Deli serves some of the best bagels south of the Mason-Dixon Line, and you can even get yours with generous portions of lox, onions, and cream cheese, just like in NYC. The menu is rounded out with all the classic breakfast and brunch staples, from Belgian waffles and French toast to omelets and egg sandwiches. 

  6. Edna's Country Cookin - 3268 S Crater Rd, Petersburg, VA 23805
    If you are in Petersburg looking at Petersburg homes for sale, make sure to stop by Edna's Country Cookin. Open every day from 6 am to 10 pm, their kitchen serves up classic comfort food and breakfast all day.

Big City Versus Suburban Living

Suburban Home Midlothian
Lately, there has been a great deal of attention placed on living in downtown areas.  Some love the idea of living in a large metro area with all the lights, sounds, and smells that come with it. 

Still, many prefer the quiet, slower pace of living in the suburbs.  If you've been searching for a home in Richmond but living in an urban setting seems too overwhelming, then why not consider one of our stand-out, suburban areas:  Midlothian, VA.

Only a quick 25-minute commute from Richmond, Midlothian was voted by CNBC.com as one of Top 10 Perfect Suburbs in the U.S. and Money Magazine among their Best Places to Live rankings.  If you're looking to relocate to a community with good schools, low crime, quality living, and affordable housing, Midlothian is the right Chesterfield County community for you.
