Virginia Bread Company To Open Restaurant in Toano

JAMES CITY-Virginia Bread Company plans to open a brick-and-mortar restaurant in Toano later this year.

The new establishment will be located at the corner of Richmond Road and Church Lane.

Menu offerings will include Virginia Bread Company’s signature sourdough products including sourdough boule and sourdough English muffins. Other options include Eggs Benedict and a make it your way breakfast sandwich along with rotating daily specials.

“We are excited to be able to bring Toano and Williamsburg a true sourdough experience,” said Colin O’Rourke, who owns Virginia Bread Company with his wife, Ainslie.

The O’Rourkes have 16 years’ worth of baking experience combined. Virginia Bread Company started out by selling its products at Williamsburg Farmers Market as well as online.

Renovations are underway at the restaurant, which the O’Rourkes hope to open by late summer.

The pair are excited to be expanding their family-owned business.

“We wake up making bread and go to sleep making bread,” Colin O’Rourke said.  “We do it because of the love everyone has shown us over the past few years. Our dream could not be possible without our amazing customers and the community.”
