Breaking Bread brings back the good ole days of going to the local cafe and having a wonderful meal of meat-n- two or three. I have never found this diner to be a disappointment, if you are hungry for a delicious home cooked meal, this is your place!

Our family eats at Breaking Bread every few months and have never been disappointed! My favorites are the mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese and cooked apples. The ONLY downside is their hours! So often we want dinner from here and they are closed. If the owner is reading this... PLEASE open for dinner!

The food is delicious and home-cooked selections vary from day to day. Service was also attentive and extremely friendly. My selection of chicken and dressing, turnip greens and mashed potatoes with a corn muffin was filling and reminiscent of the way we no longer take time to do in our own households. The interior is quaint, plain, simple yet cheery,... More

Really good "home-cooked" food, just like Mom or Grandma made. Meat and 3 type - delicious and the prices are unbeatable.

If you want a good meal this is it. The flavor is great. You get a meat and 2 for 6.50. All the workers were as friendly as they could be I thought I was at my grandmothers. There is also a new antique mall next door stop in if you have time.

This is an amazing hole in the wall palce to get great southern cooking. It has the feeling of your grandmas kitchen and the people that work there are so nice. Food offered is a meat and 3 type with several meats and veggies offered daily. You MUST try their fried pork chops, chicken and dressing, and turnip greens.

I have to say what a wonderful surprise I had when I stumbled into this little spot! I was out running a relative around town and was about to starve, but didn't want to go to a crowded place with 400 tables, half good food and high prices. Well, did I luck up or what??? We went in, and while... More

I have lived in this town since 1964 with a few breaks here and there..can I tell you my delight in wandering into this little restaurant and finding the gem that I did!! The first thing I noticed other than the wonderful aroma's of grandma's kitchen was the friendliness of the owner and her family. They make you feel like... More

This is a clean little reataraunt. We felt right at home as soon as we walked in the door. I think before we left the restaraunt, we had conversation with everybody that would come and go. We had breakfast there. It was all you can eat. You tell them what you want and they bring it to you. It was... More
