Wonderful Lunch Treat

Fantastic place to have a nice lunch. Located in downtown Waxahachie with a boutique-type store attached. They offer soups, salads, sandwiches, and pasta. Their orange spiced tea ia delicious!

Very cute place. Delish sandwiches. I look forward to dining here again and hopefully they won't be out of the pecan pie :)

We ordered the chicken -Apricot salad. It was billed as coming on a "large bed of mixed greens.".which was a couple 1" square lettuce pieces hidden under a powdery ground up chicken clump on a plate. We were starved after the "meal". The apricots ? Dried apricots, literally gagging us. There was a 3 x 1 x 1" sliced piece... More

The gift shop is darling with lots of unique things, but the restaurant is NOT what it used to be! Not sure what happened, but the food is poor now! You used to have to wait just to get a table, but now you can walk right in since hardly anyone eats there. We ate there on Good Friday 2015... More

I couldn't stay to dine-in but they have take-out. I usually order their salad trio but this time I ordered a sandwich and I was not disappointed! Delish!

We went to The Doves Nest Restaurant before going on a Tour of Homes at Christmas time. It was a cute place, with a shop full of things you won't find elsewhere and a nice little restaurant that was packed the day we were there. The food, mostly sandwiches or soups or salads, was very good and the portions were... More

I told my mother that I was driving through Waxachie and she exclaimed, you have to go to the bird's nest! Well she meant The Doves Nest and now I know why. I had the half sandwich panini and spring salad. Both were fantastic, I also had a lemon cupcake which was also divine. It also has a shop attached... More

The Doves Nest is nestled on the corner behind the courthouse. The family that owns it is kind and welcoming. Its is a very chicky place. The food is unique and fantastic! I enjoy everything I partake in here. The atmosphere is rather noisy so don't expect a quiet experience. The shop is a little pricey but the products seem... More

I always start off with their corn relish and potato chips! All salads and sandwiches are excellent but don't miss the buttermilk pie!

Fresh food, great little place in downtown Waxahachie. Lunch specials daily. You may even have to wait for a table during the week at lunch.
