Two of my friends and I decided to try Five Forks for breakfast the other day after working out at the YMCA. We were very happy we did. Everyone is right, it is more of a diner than a cafe and I mean that in the best way. We had to wait about 5 minutes but they had hot apple... More

First let me say this is a typical diner atmosphere that has probably been there since the 60's. Staff is friendly and prompt. We were seated quickly and orders taken without delay. The food is GREAT - I got eggs over easy, sausage patties, hasbrowns (fresh made), and sourdough bread toast and coffee. I couldn't eat it all. Husband got... More

Visited for breakfast on a Tuesday morning and the place was very busy which is normally a good sign. Pretty typical breakfast menu for the southern states including biscuits and gravy, chicken fried steak, grits etc do the was plenty to choose from. Our orders were taken quickly and the food followed shortly. The food was very good and portions... More

Five Forks was really good! Not the best food I've ever had in my dining experience, but definitely solid and we would go back for sure. The portions are HUGE, so plan accordingly. I wanted to try both the sausage gravy and biscuits and the corned beef hash, so I got a side of the hash and didn't come close... More

Think Waffle House with decorations. It has basic diner options you expect for breakfast or lunch. We didn't have to wait for a seat, but the place started filling up around lunch time. This was easy for our family of four. We ended up paying about $5-6 a plate.

My wife and I took my oldest son and his family here for brealfast one Sunday morning based off reviews we had seen on this site. We wanted something differant, away from the normal tourist area. This is a unique cafe. We were not sure what to expect and we did not know how big this cafe was or was... More

We chose the diner for the Trip Advisor reviews, and we were not disappointed. First - I would say the "cafe" is more a diner than a cafe. The interior reminded me more of a Waffle House than a market place cafe. The cement block walls are decorated with a few pictures, but my favorite was the restaurant's own signage.... More

We went here for breakfast, we discovered this place at the end of our week, so only got to go one time, but everything was good, the regular pancakes, the pecan banana and blueberry were awesome, this is a nice place to eat, probably more locals than tourists. Open Breakfast and lunch only.

Tried it out off a review, shared the "big omelette" and the "loaded hash browns" with my wife and we were stuffed. Very good! Mom had the French toast with sausage patties and loved it. Sausage definitely had to be homemade, delicious. Coffee not so much, although water in the area is nasty from the chlorine so little can be... More

Sunday morning we were looking for good food quickly. Using our sources, this place popped up with great reviews. Have DINER expectations. The place isn't fancy or grand but the food was excellent. Our wait time was only ten mins. We ordered omelettes, pancakes, grits, fruits and the corn cakes. Everyone's plate was cleaned! Service was speedy and polite. Try... More
