They have a good selection of different food. Mainly a buffet great breakfast! I only tried their breakfast but it was great. You can dine in are carry out which ever suites you. Better than fast food.

Longstreet Cafe is not fancy but is family friendly. You plain good country cooking. Buffett line with all the trimmings. A great establishment and favorite of many in Gainesville, Ga.

Ate here several times for lunch with business associates. Cafeteria style southern cooking. We all enjoyed it.

If you like country cooked food, this is your place to go. My preference is something else but the food is good. In my opinion, I think it's a little over priced. But each is their own, I would say. My parents have a garden so I get plenty of vegetables to eat but if you don't have access to... More

Arrived early to meet party & while waiting, staff inquired and provided coffee & water before they arrived. Standard assembly line breakfast but had a home-cooked feel. Eggs/bacon/toast fine and great biscuits. It seems that everyone knew everyone & had family environment.

Very surprised by the 4 and 5 star reviews. Friendly and accommodating, but most of the food is mediocre, at best. Not recommended at all.

I passed the fresh salad bar, scrumptous dessert pans, fried chicken and pot roast with potatoes and carrots to get to the vegetable offerings. Broccoli with cheese, green beans with whole pieces of ham, maccaroni and cheese, fried okra, fresh creamed corn, squash casserole to name a few were the very best in North Georgia. If you want to meet... More

I eat here at least once a week for lunch and am never disappointed. The food is excellent! As for the meats, I have had grilled chicken, grilled pork chops, lasagna, country fried steak, Asian grouper, chicken tenders, and the pot roast. I've heard rave reviews on their fried chicken and meatloaf, I've just never been a meatloaf type of... More

My wife and I have tried this establishment several times the food varied from fair to poor each time. Of course it is mass prepared cafeteria style food so that tells the story itself. We should have known better especially after the first time we tried it and found the food and environment only fair.

Longstreet Cafe is a classic Southern food icon in Gainesville. It's a place where almost everyone in town eats at one time or another, and the town "personalities" often hold court here in the morning. The food is excellent even though it's served off a buffet line (cafeteria style), and you can't go wrong with anything for either breakfast or... More
