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!

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

While visiting Callaway 4th of July weekend , my friends & I enjoyed lunch here. The Old Glory sandwich is recommended because it is tasty! Luckily, I had the same server (Briana) as my last visit to this café, always kind & helpful! As for dessert, I recommend the huge & scrumptious cheesecake!! Everything is good!

We were looking for a restaurant in Pine Mt. On a Sunday evening. After checking Tripadvisor we decided on Bon Vivant Cafe. Our food was excellent, we had the shrimp and grits and meat loaf meal. Both were outstanding. One person had posted that they had an awful experience on a Sunday, we found our experience was totally different! Jessica... More

Vegetable chili was barely warm and not very tasty.The quiche was disappointing. Cuban sandwich not bad but not traditional Cuban sandwich. Very nice fruit and cheese platter. The restaurant is very cute and nostalgic.

We were visiting friends who live in Hamilton, GA and decided to have a late lunch on a Sunday afternoon while wandering main street shops. Friends had said food was good, etc. We were not impressed at all mainly due to the service. The Sunday service team seem to be the second string team. Had to our server ask multiple... More

This is a wonderful little restaurant and ice cream bar. We popped in for a Saturday lunch, where we enjoyed the pimento burger, black and blue burger and roast beef sandwich along with a bottle of wine. The host gave us samples of wine to select our bottle, which was nice. And the prices were very affordable too - for... More
