Sweet Sweet Virginia
“Do you moisturize your day-cole-tay?” the esthetician at the Tides Inn asked demurely. I think I managed a nod. I was in such a deep trance under her magic spell, any movement seemed impossible. But I remember thinking it had been a very long time since I had heard the word, décolleté, and her southern drawl was absolutely intoxicating.

WILLIAMSBURG'S ART CAFE 26 IS A REAL TREASURE
I had gone with the business break special, an Austrian vegetable strudel ($9.90). It arrived looking almost too pretty to eat. Three dabs of a mellow tomato sauce dotted the rectangular white plate, while tiny wedges of vibrant cherry tomatoes kept the eye moving. Three fat slices of the strudel were sprinkled with black sesame seeds and bursting at the seams with a vegetable melange. Mushrooms, peppers, tomatoes and onions were succulent and soft, while fresh rosemary and thyme slowly revealed themselves, growing bolder as the dish cooled. A cheese I couldn't quite identify, but turned out to be a fresh feta, was pillowy soft, without any overt trace of saltiness. Extremely well done.

NewTowner
"Sibilla has connections. And they're obviously excellent connections in the international world of restuaranteurs and artists. Standard procedure for art cafe 26 is a new chef every three months, most likely from a European country and one whose culinary imagination she is sure of. It keeps the menu of art café 26 constantly changing and a surprise to her diners and patrons"



Daily Press
"Two hours after we walked in, we finally left, exhilarated at our new find. Art café 26 is an independently owned venue that lends eclectic local flair to the new mixed-use community of Williamsburg's New Town

Come and sit for a spell. Linger over the art on the walls, feast upon the art on the plates and leave the rat race at the door "
