Charming

Totally lived up to the billing! Great spot for a "girls" lunch, but arrive early. It was packed, and the quiche special was already sold out. Portions are large. Be sure to share with others, if ordering the ABC Spread.

Get here early. This place fills up. It is located in an antique shop . Great soup and sandwiches. Come just for the Bourbon Pecan Chocolate pie!

The best chicken salad that I have ever eaten. The atmosphere is quaint and relaxed. The lunch menu will satisify every taste.

This was a very quaint place to come for lunch. It is in the middle of the town and in a store front. The food is excellent and the service fairly quick. A great place to stop during a nice shopping day.

The Dove's Nest is the best lunch place in Waxahachie, by far. If you like distinctive lunches, be sure to come. Everything on the menu is not like the chain restaurants.

I went with a group of friends. Each of us enjoyed our sandwiches, and the desserts were great. We ordered 5 different desserts and shared them all among us. The bourbon pecan pie, the blackberry bread pudding, the chocolate fudge cake, etc. - they were all amazing. I normally do not like bread pudding, but I really liked it at... More

This has been a place I love to return to - I am from PA so not from the area. The tea is great - had it hot this time - nice with citrus flavor. The Corn relish very tasty with fresh chips. And portabella mushroom sandwich is amazing. Nice hint of Horsh relish - light for those of you... More

This is a nice place for lunch featuring salads, sandwiches and soups. The service was good and the sand which was good, loaded with meat and cheese. I had the Dove Creek Club Panini.
