I had noticed this place, never would have stopped had I not checked tripadvisor. Had unbelievable soft shell (crab) eggs Benedict. Took my husband sausage and gravy to go, which he said was the best he had ever had. And he LOVES sausage gravy whenever we travel south. Only recommendation is stronger coffee and WiFi. I love quirky places with... More

Trying to get a table at this establishment may take some time but the food is well worth the wait. All our family members that visit this area make a special trip for lunch to this place on each visit. It's that good!!!

Open for breakfast & Lunch & tucked away in a renovated gas station, the food is always good here, particularly the daily specials. Standard sandwiches that you just can't find most places....chicken salad on multi-grain toast is a favorite!! The Cobb salad is wonderful w/ freshly pulled chicken & all the other goodies. It gets busy w/ the locals at... More

We ate lunch at CarWash Cafe this past Saturday. The food was good but expensive. I ordered a coke and received a glass mainly filled with ice (the price was $1.89). It was very hard to get the waitress's attention. I had the potato salad as a side. It was also good but had more egg whites and onions than... More

I have only ate here one time, but it was very very good. If you want lunch be sure to call ahead, as it gets very full. My hamburger was very tasty and I enjoyed that they had lots of options for sides, such as fruit ( mine was cut up and fresh) and different veggies. I would love to... More

We felt right at home. The food was superlative - fresh and tasty with gluten-free and vegetarian options. Staff was efficient, and the decor is simply fun. It was filled with locals when we had lunch there.

Hidden behind the car wash this is truly a hidden treasure. Their food is really nice, everyone in our party was impressed and the pricing was acceptable.

The Carwash is a very good local eatery. The food is always top notch and delicious. The only drawback is that it is only open for breakfast and lunch. It is somewhat pricey but you get what you pay for.

Recently visited 2x's this month. First time was for lunch. The cafe can seat only about 30 folks in a small area. The kitchen is right in the dining area. Staff was friendly. Had their crab cake sandwich was was very good. Went back a few days later to try their breakfast. Not as impressive as lunch as the serving... More
