Delicious Breakfast! We always get a kick out of the waitress' interaction with the locals! You can't find a more friendly atmosphere, and the food is VERY good! Can't wait to see them all again next year!

We enjoyed a quick lunch here before heading out tubing for the day. Our kids each had a kids meal that they enjoyed - basic chicken fingers and grilled cheese. Nothing fancy but they're picky so that's a plus. I really liked the fried green tomato BLT, very tasty. The staff was pleasant and we even bought a cute Firefly... More

We (7 family members -- all adults) had lunch at the Firefly Cafe in Townsend, TX. The waitress was very friendly, the cafe was clean, the atmosphere was pleasant, and the food was yummy! Prices were about average. Besides the wonderful lunch menu they also had a little bakery case up front. We shared and enjoyed a large gooey brownie!!... More

Warm, friendly, great service, great portions, great breakfast. This is exactly what we hope to find when we travel: a small, locally owned restaurant with good food. Even though it's in a strip mall, the interior is warm, welcoming, and eclectic. The country ham was great but my family all oohed and aahed over the hash browns, agreeing they were... More

My husband and I went here on our honeymoon last year and went back for our anniversary. They have amazing biscuits and gravy (my favorite) and my husband gets the Mountain Mash every time. The service is friendly, the atmosphere is cozy, and the food is excellent. I love it, and you will too!

The Firefly Cafe is open again and we couldn't be more pleased. We had breakfast on a Sunday morning, (no small feat in Townsend might I add) and my goodness I'm glad we did. Martha was our singing waitress and she was a delight. From the staff to the food we couldn't be more impressed. It's a small, cozy Cafe... More
