Nice "Ladies Lunch" place

Charming atmosphere in an old house. This time we sat on the front porch (it's enclosed) and it was quite comfortable even though it was cold outside. Lunch was good as always. Smart to go with the daily specials which were hot and more appealing on a cold day. The salads are great in the... read more

I was pleasantly surprised to discover the availabilty of good healthy food at this restaurant. They offer a vegetable plate with a choice of four vegetables which I gather changes from day to day. I enjoyed all the vegetables even though a couple of them were cooked southern style but they were not greasy! The salad contained a variety of... More

Nice resturant placed in an older home in Dickson's Downtown area. They have very good daily cooked food. There is always a daily special or you can order off of a menu. It can get a little crowded, but it is worth the trip. Everytime we have food catered to the office, we are delighted when we find out they... More

Ensconced in a former residence, this a lovely, tea room like, cafe. Very tastefully decorated, it is a perfect spot to enjoy a civilized lunch. There is a very good menu, but the treasure lies on the special board which changes daily. Service is very good. Prices are reasonable.

This restaurant does not handle large groups well. We had a group of 18 the restaurant starting to run out of food and started to make the portions much small than the first plates that come out.

Valentine's special was a bit pricey for $94/ daily lunches and Friday evening meals pretty good and a lot less expensive. Restored home done in good taste.

I had lunch at this charming restaurant in downtown Dickson, TN, on Thursday, Aug. 5, 2010. Service was very friendly and fast in spite of the fact that the restaurant was filling up fast. I ordered the cold strawberry soup and chicken salad on a petite croissant. They quickly brought me a small square of buttery cinnamon toast and a... More
