This place was amazing last time I was here. This time was much different in afraid. The staff was edgy, the food only average, and service was hard to get. There were only a few tables, hard to fathom why things were so blah this time.

Two couples came in after us, and both of them had drink orders taken, menus and silverware deliverd, and finally drinks delivered and orders taken. Waitresses kept walking past us. We caught two waitresses' eyes - guess they were just busy. After 10 minutes, we got up... More

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. And I don't mean just our server either. Everyone in the café was that way. Even a couple of the regulars smiled and said... More

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!

Service was quite good. Now for the not so good. Chicken fried steak was flavorful, but tough; more tenderizing needed. At least the meat wasn't a frozen item. It was hand battered, but the crust fell away when the meat was cut; needed a little work on technique. A six or seven dollar sandwich was just that, two pieces of... More
