Description: WE ARE CLOSED FROM JANUARY 1-15, 2015 Hours: Mon,Thur - 11-9 Fri & Sat - 11-10 CLOSED ON TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY'S Looking for that sweet stop for a classic treat? Perhaps a five star dinner? Look no further! From the old time soda fountain, to the hand patted burgers, Bon ViVant is that hole-in-the-wall diner not to be overlooked. Settle right in with our famous "Old Glory" chicken salad sandwiches or indulge in our own twist on pasta with the Petti de Pollo dish. Trust the locals on the town favorite meatloaf, even add a hand spun milkshake to the mix! No matter what you decide on, everything on our menu is simply delightful, as shown by our recent "award for small town dining" by trip advisor. If that hasn't convinced you stop by perhaps a cup of freshly brewed coffee and our massive, freshly baked cinnamon rolls and pies from the bakery will help make your decision easier. Rumor has it our treats are better than any grandmothers' recipe (or at least that's what we're told). Whatever you put your fork into around here we can guarantee you won't be disappointed. So come on in and let us welcome you to the South's finest! See you soon!

We stopped here to have dinner with our grandsons, before heading to Callaway to see the lights. Cute, but small. We waited 30 minutes in a crammed in space. When we were seated we ordered two hamburgers and two lasagnas. We waited and waited and waited! Someone finally came around to say they were sorry and they would take 15%... More

My husband and I headed to Pine Mountain to view the Christmas lights at Callaway Gardens. Before hand, we stopped to eat dinner at Bon Vivant Cafe - I saw that it had great reviews on Trip Advisor. As usual, Trip Advisor was right! It was a great little local spot. The restaurant was quaint and welcoming. The staff was... More

Soup and sandwich was good, but not the best. The server was a polite, attentive, young man. The restaurant is small and could have benefited from better ventilation. The restaurant is located on the main street. Parking was available on Sunday, but might be a problem on a busy day.

Cute little find for our trip to Callaway Gardens! Service could have been better, but the food was delicious; appetizer, main meal, and dessert!

My wife and I stopped in before going in to Callaway Gardens. We had not researched any restaurants in Pine Mountain; fortunately, we landed here. The food was outstanding and the service was very good. Great atmosphere also. If we are at Callaway again, we will be sure to stop here.

The service was excellent and the food was even better! This is the best place to get a milkshake in 4 counties. If you are in the area, do yourself a favor and stop to get one of their milkshakes!

This place has a nice atmosphere to it with special attention to decorations on the walls and a very nice bar area. We stopped here for lunch and had a good meal. Certainly no complaints with either the service or food. However, it was nothing "special". We could have just as easily been in one of the many chains that... More

My wife and I split a cinnamon roll and coffee in this quaint little café on a Saturday morning. We had to wait til 11am for them to open but the service made up for that. We were greeted by Coleman, who also took our orders and brought our food. We didn't order much food but what we did have... More

First off, the service was fantastic, and the atmosphere of the restaurant was great too. What I'd expect from a small rural town. We had two toddlers with us, and the staff were more than accommodating to us. As for the food - I had a burger that was excellent - the "Michi" or something along those lines. Great combination...

We stumbled onto this little gem. Walked in to see what it looked like and to see if we wanted to stay and the smell inside was so wonderful we knew we were staying. We got lasagna, a meat one and a veggie one, daughter got a hamburger that she loved. Salads and homemade dressing were wonderful. Desserts were magnificent-... More
