Eating and exploring our way through the world


Posted by Amanda @ The Hungry Wanderers on August 15, 2009

Knowing how much the Husband loves ice cream, my sister did some research and found that the Doumar family invented the ice cream cone and that their restaurant and ice cream shop is near by in Norfolk!  Today we discovered that Doumar’s also serve breakfast and lunch and headed there to get lunch before the necessary ice cream treat 🙂

As a little background, Doumar’s is a family-owned/run restaurant that has been in Norfolk since 1934 (there have been a couple remodels since then).  Additionally, it has been featured on the Food Network.

Upon arrival, we found that waitresses deliver food to the cars or you can eat inside.


The place had a super cute diner feel to it.


You can also go in and order take out.




We waited a short while until a table for six opened up.  We dived right into the menus and were amazed at the prices!



The Husband and I both ordered Grilled Cheese (his with bacon).  My sister ordered a hot dog while my brother-in-law and sister-in-law ordered cheeseburgers.  My brother got a steak sandwich.  Five of us ordered a side of fries 🙂


I also splurged and got a Cherry Coke (I don’t normally get soda) and my brother and his wife split a Vanilla Shake.  (It was a bit too thick at first so they had to let it melt a bit.)


They had this hot sauce that was awesome! In the tastiness way (not the spiciness way).  I meant to ask the waiter what it was but forgot 😦

Everyone was very happy with their lunch!  But we couldn’t wait for dessert 🙂



We all got ice cream cones!



The cones, especially the cone itself, were delicious! So fresh tasting!!  Definitely recommend this place if you like ice cream cones 🙂

Ooh, I almost forgot! They make their cones fresh daily with the original cone maker!
