Description: Hours: Mon,Thur - 11-9 Fri & Sat - 11-10 CLOSED ON TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY'S Please say Hello to our NEW Executive Chef, Geoff Cox! 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!

Was there yesterday with my GF who said she was going to "order my lunch so sit back and eat what they bring". OOOkaaaayy. Sat at a quaint little table outside sweating. Not from the heat but with worry about what I was about to experience. This "burger" is made from chick peas and quinoa with lettuce, tomato and onion... More

Stopped here on our way back from Callaway Gardens. The sandwiches and sides were homemade and really yummy. Had a couple of equally good slices of pie for dessert. Our server was terrific. Will be going back here for certain!

I went here with a big group and everyone had a great experience. The food and the service was excellent and the prices were very reasonable.

Our waiter, Russell, was excellent, as was our host who prepared dessert (more below). We called ahead to see if there were vegetarian options and a good kids menu. We were assured of both and were not disappointed. Our children enjoyed grilled cheese and pasta. We liked the quiche on salad (slice of quiche was a little small), and the... More

After trying the seafood buffet at the Callaway Mountain Inn and breakfast at the Callaway country restaurant, we were pretty disappointed in the fare nearby. That is, until we found Bon Vivant. Our first stop was for lunch. I had the pimento cheese hamburger and my husband had the chicken salad sandwich. Both were delicious. The ambiance is awesome too.... More

We stopped here for lunch on our way to Callaway Gardens. This place reminded us of an old-fashioned soda shoppe, but the food has a modern twist. I had the portabello on pretzel bun with goat cheese and a side of potato salad; which was just fine; really loved the potato salad. Our server was friendly and very attentive. My... More

Not sure where to eat on our last night at Callaway Gardens. Bon vivant is a Main Street storefront restaurant like an old pharmacy soda jerk. Called ahead and expected burgers, fries and milkshakes. Enjoyed stuffed pork chops with creamed spinach reduction , southwest meatloaf with tomato salsa, ahi tuna on top of peach salad , chicken salad sandwich. To... More

This cute little restaurant is right on the quaint little main street of Pine Mountain. Walking inside is like stepping back in time with its old timey soda shop feel. Service was fast and friendly but we did have some mistakes from the staff- incorrect drinks and meals missing key ingredients. Sweet tea was great on this hot day and... More

Ordered salad and quiche. The quiche was put on top the salad which made the quiche cool and the salad warm (to go). The quiche had a crust that seemed to taste of lard, and too much of it. Perhaps it was just a bad day. Very cute, central location.

I went because the reviews were so good, and I was not disappointed. My 6 year old daughter and I split the lasagna, which was delicious. All the staff was fantastic. Our waiter, Wesley, was friendly and attentive, and the guy running the counter, whose name I didn't get, was so great, showing my daughter step by step as he... More
