Customer Feature: The Little Grill Collective

By Diane Hebdon

“Amazing food and wonderful service!” “They source their food from local farmers and the service was very friendly!” “A breakfast paradise!” “I could eat here every day!” These are just a few reviews for a long-time staple in our community – The Little Grill Collective.

The Little Grill has been an anchor on the north side of Harrisonburg since the 1940’s. Since 2003, the Little Grill has been worker-owned. They are a close-knit group of owners who care about each other and the community they serve.

Specializing in breakfast and lunch, the Grill uses local farmers whenever possible. They keep a large chalkboard listing all the local farms/businesses they use in their operation. Customers enjoy seasonal changes in their menu, depending on the produce in season. Menu items are made from scratch, and it makes a big difference!

With love and concern for the environment, this busy restaurant produces less than one bag of garbage a day. They do this through unique kitchen systems and composting most of their waste. Their take-out containers are bio-degradable to further their environmental concern.

What I love MOST about The Little Grill Collective is how I feel when I’m there.

I feel like I step out of the present and into a time machine – a kind of local café I used to go to in the early 70’s. Amazing food made from scratch, and a staff that makes you feel at home. I love being their insurance agent and I’ve enjoyed getting to know the great group of people who make up our local treasure, The Little Grill Collective.

Try them out…..they will treat you right and your tummy will thank you.
