This family run restaurant is fabulous, it doesn't matter what you choose off the menu it's delicious, it has a very welcoming atmosphere and we were made to feel right at home. I would highly recommend a visit and can't wait to go back. Very friendly people.

Love this place. The staff are always upbeat and friendly. They remember your face and even what you liked.... The menu is creative and I have throughly enjoyed every meal I've ordered. Not to mention the mimosa menu and their Bloody Mary's-- they're a hit, too!!

We visited from out of town & our local friends took us here for breakfast. We heard several times before we got there about how good the coffee was. I don't know how they make it but before I knew it I was on my third cup; it's that good. If you like brisket, get the smoked brisket breakfast special.... More

We were in Windermere house hunting and were told repeatedly, "Go to Dixie Cream Cafe". So we did and it was such a treat we went back the next day as well. Be sure and try their "Beef Brisket Hash" and their "Chicken & Grits covered in Sausage Gravy"!

We were looking for a new place for Sunday breakfast, tired of the chains. Drove to Windermere and saw the sign for this little place. 20 minute wait was fine, ambiance is great, fun decor. Lively place. The offered lattes, mimosas (extra charge, of course). Menu was very good. Bananas Foster French Toast was wonderful!!!!

Had brunch on Sunday April 12th - a whole series of issues from wait time, mistaken identity and wrong meal served, but the icing on the cake was our server changing her 15% tip to a 35% tip after the fact. Food is okay but save yourself the aggravation of this Keystone Cops staff and go to Peach Valley Café... More

Outstanding home cooking, family run & staff are just so friendly and accommodating! Pleasure to go here most Sundays for brunch. Friday dinner is awesome also.

This place is so homey, and friendly. Huge omelets, great sausage, delicious waffles. The only thing I don't care for is the bacon; I thought it had a strange taste. I hear the Brisket Hash is very good. They do breakfast and lunch and are only open til 2pm, so get there early!
