Met some friends at the Saturday farmer's market and decided to have lunch here, absolutely no regrets from all four of us. A good selection of food from heathy to decadent.

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. We all were pleased and would recommend this restaurant if Italian... More

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!!!!

Yes, the lunch is delicious and fresh and great, but do not leave without getting the Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie. It is worth a drive from wherever you are. I haven't had anything here I haven't liked, the atmosphere is very cute. I meet my friend here for lunch and I always look forward to it when I do!

I've always dreamed of having the talent to bring a place like this to life - it was a most sinful experience seriously - the gift shop is awesome but way over priced - the restaurant was incredible and I'd like to see you just try and pass up desert (you'll kick yourself if you do) The Angus burger was...
