“Perfect sandwich!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

We stopped in here with some friends while we were visiting Waynesville during the arts and crafts festival. We were famished and the reuben sandwiches here was to die for! Yummy!

“2 meals both pretty average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

While I like the concept of fresh foods and locally obtained produce, I'm not sure this place is anything above "average". Dined with 3 others and all meals were O.K. Rueben sandwich was sort of greasy. Chef salad - while fresh and lots of greens, had little substance.

Gave them a 2nd chance with a breakfast visit and had the quiche, which was reported to be the "lightest & fluffiest in the county". I love quiche, but, didn't love this one. It was light and fluffy, with a nice crust, but, had little flavor. The texture was close to whipped cream.

Service was good on both visits. Coffee is very good.

“When in Waynesville, this is a great lunch stop.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Everything was very good, the "thick-sliced"bacon on the BLT was actually thin and the BLT was light on amount if ingredients but very tasty. The $1.99 upgrade to a salad from the fries led to a very small pile of salad on the plate, once again very good though. I would eat here again, just know the details.

“A pleasant surprise on Main Street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

My family of 5 was looking for a quick meal on a rainy day during our vacation. I knew downtown didn't have a lot of easy choices for our tough to please family of 5 but Cafe 50 more than exceeded our expectations. I have two young boys and a teenage daughter. The 6 year old enjoyed a big hotdog, the 3 year old devoured his grilled cheese and my teenage daughter and wife enjoyed their brats. I had an excellent cheeseburger.

Not only was the food better than we expected but the service was great as well. Several of the waitstaff talked to my boys and constantly checked on us throughout our meal.

We will definitely be back and will tell anyone we can about this jewel of a restaurant in downtown Waynesville.

“Nice Sunday brunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

We enjoyed the family atmosphere and pride in the restaurant shown by all who helped us. The brunch was good--not exceptional, but certainly above average.
