This store and restauants never ceases to amaze me! It has been several years since I have been there but today was a real treat!

Our lunch was Cobb Salad with a delicious honey Tabasco dressing and beautifully arranged... More

Stopped in and enjoyed some coffee and appetizers and was very surprised. Main course was great and my wife loved the store attached so she got to walk away with more than just a good meal. Staff was excellent.

We chose this restaurant for our big night out dinner on our girlfriend getaway weekend. They gave us a large table in a quiet, private area of the place, food was very good and wait staff was helpful and attentive. All of this made it a memorable time together.

This is a great place to have a very nice meal and browse through the attached craft store. My wife loves coming to the Dove's Nest. The food is good and the merchandise is very creative.

If you can make it past all the unique shopping on the way in (which is highly unlikely), then you'll really enjoy the restaurant. Great sandwiches and soups, and the iced tea is always something special.

Held a wedding rehearsal dinner here and was excellent. Interior layout, entire dinner from appetizers to dessert and service from 4 young ladies was top notch. Everyone was complementary and pleased.

The Dove's Nest is the best spot for a ladies' lunch in Waxahachie, TX. They're only open until 2:00, so make sure you get there in time. Our favorite is the chicken salad - made with a mustard base instead of the usual mayonnaise. The pizzas are VERY small (child portion for all), so don't order one if you're hungry.

It's in a small town.... But it's big on service, food, AND shopping! The store surrounding the tea room is packed with all kinds of wonderful items. Build up your appetite, because the food is great, and desserts... Exquisite!!!!
