One of the BEST things about DeLand, Florida (and there are A LOT!!) is Cook's Buffet, Cafe AND (mouth is watering as I type this) BAKERY!
Once you go, you will KNOW! First, the building and grounds are meticulously kept and very attractive, in keeping with the CHARM of Stetson University, which is directly across the street.
Walk in and you are warmly greeted, and unless they are super-busy, you and your party will be seated and offered your beverage and menu. But who needs a menu? For me, it's THE BUFFET! Fresh assortment of salads that would satisfy even the pickiest vegetarian (!), then onto the CARVER who will attentively prepare your main course. Then the SIDES: if you like "home-cooking", you will NOT be disappointed! Heap up your plate, and you can even go back for more sides, should you choose. I rarely leave room for dessert, but DO take one home! The best! Not only beautifully presented, they are so good, I would be hard-pressed to choose my favorite! But: the ChocolateFudgeBrownie Sundae is right there at the top... A family favorite for many, many years, we always look forward to a wonderful meal at Cook's, and I have no doubt the tradition will continue in our family, and what a treat to "show off" to out-of-town guests! Love it! Joy & Mike Wehrfritz, friends and family
