I tried to add to my previous review but do not see how to do that. I've been back to Marcy Jo's a couple times since my previous review and the service has been fine.

I had found this little gem on Pinterest a while back. Didn't give a whole lot of thought to it, but luckily one day when traveling towards Springhill I ended up stopping here because the School House Cafe was closed on weekends. My good fortune!! Saturday menu is different from the rest of the week. I opted for the stuffed... More

Mary Jo's has not only great food but wonderful character. The people who own and work there are down to earth nice. We go every time we are visiting the area, and usually more than once each trip.

This place is well worth the out of the way trip for good food and out of this world cakes but they are only open Thursday, Friday and Saturday. .

True southern breakfast and lunch spot - everything is tasty and very good - especially the large selection of fresh baked bread and desserts. My wife and I like a late breakfast - so friendly and inviting - worth driving out of the way. Check on hours, as they have shortened the days they are open. Sit at the family... More

Great service and friendly folks, unfortunately there is always very little I can eat there. As a person that follows the biblical food laws, it was a bit disappointing that most everything has pork. However the sticky buns are hard to beat!

Most people focus on the breakfast and the great sticky buns and French Toast. I would like to add the Friday night Catfish dinners. Superb! The batter is not heavy or greasy. Cooked to perfection. Add the homemade cole slaw and a Hush Puppy, unsweetened ice tea and you have a great meal. I pass on desserts unless that is... More

We stopped for breakfast. Food was marginal and prices were high. I had the French toast which came out black. Building: floor was not level and the walls felt like they could fall in. Our table was off by over an inch. It was decorated cute.
