Good food

Probably the nicest meal during our stay, very relaxing eating areas, private and comfortable. Waitress was friendly.

Gorgeous cafe, great coffee, friendly talkative folks. I had a bacon egg and cheese breakfast sandwich. Free refills on the coffee. Chatted and chatted. Seemed rather upscale and much nicer than I expected, and I mean that in the kindest and nicest way. I hated to leave. And want to come back.

This was my second visit to Yazoo Pass. My memory of the salad bar was better than what I saw, so I chose to order from the menu. I had a smoked turkey sandwich and gazpacho. The meat on the sandwich had a strange flavor. I did not realize gazpacho was a cold soup, so that is my fault. It... More

What a wonderful little coffeehouse and restaurant! Spacious, cozy, friendly staff, great coffee and wonderful soups, sandwiches, salad bar. This place really made a positive impression on me. I could eat every meal here.

Even though I am an international visitor, I found the friendliness amazing everyone seems to know each other and the welcome is wonderful. A relaxing light and breezy restaurant, east to enjoy. Good menu, omelette made to order. Good value

On the evening of my first day in Clarksdale I decided to have dinner at Yazoo Pass, a fairly upscale (when compared to tamale joints) place. The reason for my being in town: the Juke Joint Festival which features live blues music all over town. Blackwater Trio, a three person group (two guitars and a violin) played during my time...

Busy place. Good food and the best coffee in town. Right in the middle of all the action. Great service.

We'd read the reviews & went in search of Yazoo's. It's a big restaurant with loads of seating, they also sell gifts too. Our breakfast was very good, well worth the drive into town.

It's like stepping back in time when you stroll around downtown Clarksdale... until you hit Yazoo Pass. It was one of the few places open on a Tuesday night in downtown and we were early for the music around the corner, so we had some coffee in the lounge (think Starbucks type lounge). The dinner menu looked inviting and the... More
