Sally Bells Kitchen

Traveling through Virginia to visit a close friend and family, I parked my car in Richmond. I heard of a great southern tradition that sounded delicious. I had to give it a try before venturing off on the road again to my next destination. Sally Bells Kitchen, opened 90 years ago in 1924. The establishment was founded by Sarah Cabell Jones and a business partner. Sarah and partner met at the Women’s Exchange, a former nationwide movement, intended to teach women skills and financial independence.

Sally Bells Kitchen is known for their delicious boxed lunches. Items such as potato salad, chicken salad, tuna salad, deviled eggs, cheese wafers and an array of cup cakes are made fresh from scratch daily. They sell thousands of sandwiches, cupcakes and hundreds of pounds of salads each year. This establishment is very welcoming, friendly and certainly has southern charm. The staff is just wonderful!

If one is in Richmond, Virginia looking for many bites of deliciousness, I encourage everyone to stop in and support this charming gem. This New York Foodie had a great first impression of Richmond, VA and I must thank the great Sally Bells Kitchen for that. I will return and next time I’m buying two boxed lunches, one to eat right away and another for the road. #timsnykitchenbestof @sallybellskitchen (at Richmond, Virginia)
