Vandal's Kitchen New River Gorge

When we opened the doors to our little restaurant we set out to brew the best coffee in the New River Gorge…. and with it serve the best breakfast and pull the best shot of espresso around. We chose to take a stand and make a living serving quality food right here in Fayetteville, WV. But, we weren’t the first folks with this idea.

Over 100 years ago Abraham Vandal chose a 200 acre farm to be his home. That farm would one day become the town of Vandalia… and one day Fayetteville. His family operated a tavern and stage coach stop that welcomed weary travelers with comfort and warmth of a home made meal.

Back then food was served fresh from the garden and rarely processed beyond “putting up” food for the winter. Waffles didn’t come frozen in a box. Food was prepared¬† flavor in mind and the nutrients needed to fuel an honest day’s work.

We’re honoring his family’s legacy with food cooked fresh, and sourced as local as possible every day (well, except Wednesdays).

The Best Coffee In The New River Gorge

At Vandal’s Kitchen we believe that the best dishes begin with ingredients selected for optimal flavor and nutritional value allow simple dishes to become truly remarkable.¬† We take pride in using whole, fresh ingredients that are sourced as locally and organically as possible to create southern homestyle breakfasts (all day), filling rustic lunches and a full range of single source coffee and espresso beverages.

From homemade buttermilk waffles made to order to our fresh dill chicken sandwich we cook with love and the comfort of home.
