Thursday's special is a turkey and dressing plate. It's like thanksgiving on a plate. They make a really good peanut butter and jelly.

This is one of the places we love to go when we visit Crockett TX. Breakfast is hard to mess up granted. But the friendly service is something I have not seen in a long time.

We really enjoyed this cafe. The staff was very friendly, breakfast was good and we were able to shop the antiques while we waited. Our waitress was friendly and enthusiastic about the cafe. Highly recommend.

It's a converted hardware store I'm told. The woman who runs it is the county republican chair and it's decorated as such. Thd good was good and the people were friendly and welcoming.

This restaurant is mediocre in every way. Food, service, ambiance. It is also inconsistent. You can do better. I ant be stopping here again unless I get desperate!
