The Village Inn Restaurant has been part of the Brandon community for 30 years. Originally located on Hwy. 60 near King’s Ave., it now has two Brandon area locations: 1995 W. Lumsden Rd., in the shopping center with Home Goods at the corner of Lumsden and Providence Rds. and at 10293 Big Bend Rd. Both locations recently received remodels and guests are raving about the fun new look and the upgraded atmosphere.

From the moment they open the doors until they say goodnight, Village Inn guests enjoy famous buttermilk pancakes, mouth-watering omelets and other traditional breakfast offerings, including unlimited hot coffee refills. The skillets, filled with an assortment of tempting ingredients and prepared by the Village Inn Skillet Experts, make this a sought-after destination. Rounding out the wholesome menu are more of the country’s favorite foods, offering something for everyone, fresh green salads, juicy burgers, all-American sandwiches, traditional dinner entrees like Chicken-Fried Steak and children’s items.

Village Inn also serves a wide variety of delicious pies, French Silk, Lemon Supreme, Key Lime, Triple Berry, Country Apple and Caramel Pecan Silk Supreme, to name just a few.  Pies are available everyday and pies can be reserved online for pick up year-round at www.villageinn.com or call for Brandon location at 657-7382 or Riverview at 741-3200.

Rolph said, “The community of Brandon has supported Village Inn for 30 years; this has made us great today and with your continued support greater tomorrow. Thank You Brandon.”
