Authentic Southern food at its finest.

The food here gets better every time I eat here. The food is worth waiting for. If their food doesn't hit the spot, there is something wrong with your spot.

Southern-style cooking, vast portions. Maybe an option is to share an appetizer and main and then have room for dessert.

A great place for lunch or dinner. They have a very interesting take on southern food - definitely not your standard bbq and fried chicken. Everything is made from scratch on the premises, including the cakes and pies. Desserts are $6.95 but the servings are large and well worth the price - can easily be shared. The decor is charming...

This is a small , charming restaurant that serves excellent meals for lunch and dinner. The service is very professional, and the food is fresh and well prepared. This is the place to go for authentic southern food. The homemade pie and cakes are delicious , and the mashed potatoes were the best I ever had. You will love this... More

Mercy! Where do I begin? Went with two other couples and since there aren't many large tables here, I think we had the largest one available. I had to sit through my entire meal staring at the buffet, laden with the most beautiful cakes I've ever laid eyes on! Everyone's meals were delicious and we sampled each other's so we... More

You have to go here with your ladies lucnh group. Make reservations well in advance. Food was fresh service was good. The desserts are to die for. I took a phone call outside from our Vet. When I came back most of the ladies were packing up the rest of their cake slices to take home. The price of a... More

Quaint southern charm abound in this small cafe. It can be a bit noisy when full but it's a cozy place with delicious food. The meatloaf is great, the Augustine crab cake is very good, the fruit salads are refreshing. Really have not had anything bad there. Definitely try one or several of the cakes and pies - they are...

You could drive right by without knowing it is even there - but don't! You will be missing a wonderful meal. From the chicken and waffles, to the Whistlestop (a BLT with fried green tomatoes and remoulade). We had a wonderful Mother's Day lunch (on Saturday because they are not open on Sunday). Make sure to save room for dessert!... More

Well there's a lot of southern style restaurants in Florida, but this literally takes the cake. You must check out the cakes! They're gorgeous to look at, as well as one of the best cakes I've ever ate. Every inch of this little place is charming from the decor to entree names. I mean a hunk of chocolate cake is... More
