Great Breakfast

Been going to Longstreet for years. They have some of the best biscuits in the south and that is saying something. Prices are great. You get a lot of food. Cafeteria style. Great selections. Awesome tea.

Food is ok but fairly run of the mill and very overpriced. There are better, cheaper options such as Kurts or Lorettas.

The Longstreet Cafe is Gainesville's laid back country cooking local treasure. Great place and great food plus you never know who you might see having a meal there. I recommend the fried chicken (oh good Lord delicious!) and utilize Longstreet for a business lunch at every opportunity.

Outstanding array of fresh cooked meats, fish and veggies! Buffet line with self serve, always crowded, but the wait is short. A local favorite,

I have never been disappointed by any meal from Longstreet ~ Breakfast and midday meals equally great! I have made numerous visits there with family and friends, many of whom have revisited with other family and friends of theirs.

I love, love, love Longstreet Cafe! Been eating here for many years. We like it so much we've taken many family members here for lunch or dinner. It's always been a hit with everyone. Longstreet is not a buffet restaurant as some have described it. All of the food is served cafeteria style, so you pick and serve yourself. Everything... More

Longstreet Cafe is locally owned/operated. Foods are more like what you would cook at home (but without having to cook/clean up yourself!!) It is cafeteria style, food is good, several choices on the line and the entrees differ from night to night. We normally eat here a couple of times a year.

The five of us had breakfast in this local establishment where the local crowd gathers, including on occasion, we are told, Georgia Governor Nathan Deal, whose home is in Gainesville. We had runny scrambled eggs with runny grits, a huge biscuit, crisp bacon, and a couple of sausages from the buffet line, which we understand is the only way you... More
