This was our first visit. Extremely clean place. Staff is so nice. No wait time. The breakfast was very good. There were no clanging of dishes. No residue on the flatware or glasses. This is a true gem. We will definitely be going back. They do not serve pork. The turkey bacon was a great substitute.

I have lived in Waco for the 9 years and still find this place the BEST in town. The food is outstanding and the location is great for visitors no matter where you are from. All foods are fresh, service is excellent and there are many things to see. Anytime I have friends come to visit, this is always on... More

Basically it's a soup, salad, sandwhich and burger place that use locally sourced organic ingredients. Menu selection is average, like a typical sandwich and burger shop. However, it's a long drive from center of the town. We came on a Friday for lunch, and waited more than 30 minutes for a table, because there were lots of people and the... More

Hello JPDallas, Thank you for taking the time to tell us how we're doing. I am sorry that your experience was so disappointing. As you can see from our previous reviews, your experience was definitely not typical. Please give us another try (unannounced of course) and see if, even for a sandwich and burger joint, we couldn't provide you with... More

We ate here 2 years ago, and made sure to return on our recent trip. We had lunch with kids, and all enjoyed our meal. The food is so fresh tasting and delicious. The servers are all delightful, and the price is fair for the quality you will get. While here, we stopped in to some of the shops (pottery,... More

Café Homestead is a wonderful restaurant. It is situated in an old reclaimed barn. The food is wonderful. They have daily specials and a few mainstays on the menu. The service is always great. Many of the items they use to prepare food are grown on the grounds of Homestead Heritage. If you do go out to the restaurant, make... More

This is a very charming and quaint, off the beaten path cafe that is assuredly worth the drive. This restaurant was casual and immaculately clean with delightful service with delicious, home made food. the carrot cake was truly the best I have ever had. I love this this yummy, humble cafe and will certainly be back!

What a great find - thank you Trip Advisor! The grounds of the restaurant are breathtaking. The food was wonderful, and the staff was welcoming. Wished they would have had a broader menu between 3-6, and also wish they were open past 6. Wonderful place!

My friend and I were visiting this "pioneer style" farm and were there at the noon hour and decided to eat here. At first, we were told we would have a 30 min. wait, which we did not mind. We were touring toward the fiber arts studio when my friend received a text that our table was ready just a... More

Everything was delicious even when there was no Texas bbq. The carrot cake was an excellent appetizer. Hey, we are on vacation rules! I had a turkey ranch wrap and fruit. I highly recommend that you leave the interstate and enjoy this experience. And it's healthy.
