“Resting on laurels...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012 via mobile

The Dove's Nest was once the best shop and cafe in downtown Waxahachie. No longer. Try College Street Pub or Leon's Barbecue for great places to go. The shopping is better at surrounding shops...and without the strong political rhetoric that should not be part of an enjoyable experience.

“Great lunch and a gift shop that begs browsing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

My husband and I need our Dove's Nest fix every few months. It is located in Waxahatche, TX off courthouse square. The lunch menu is great pizza, soup, salads, and sandwiches. Husband gets chicken apricot salad sandwich, I enjoy their special club sandwich which includes inside a great cheese spread. The gift shop has a unique collection of potions, gourmet food items, jewelry, and great home decorations. It's just a lovely experience. We've never had the desserts but they are huge and look delicious. It's an easy drive for the Fort Worth/Dallas metroplex and certainly worth a stop if it's on your touring route.

“Fun and charming restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012 via mobile

My sister and I recently ate at the Doves nest and couldn't have enjoyed it more. The service was excellent, even though it was busy, and the food was amazing. We had a cheese and artichoke dip as an appetizer that I would highly recommend. For lunch we shared the ricotta and basil pizza but the best part was desert. We had a blackberry bread pudding topped with vanilla ice cream. Seriously it was heavenly and the perfect size to share. We will definitely be coming back to the restaurant.

The antique store was cute and had a good mix of old an new things.

“Safe Bet - Nice Gift Emporium & Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2011

Some businesses come and go but this one seems to be a good constant. It's in a beautiful old building but, then, everything is in a beautiful old building down there. There is a good bit of shopping. Some of the prices are a little higher than what you can find at other places but occasionally there is an antique at a "steal" price or something that's just so cute that you just have to have it. I'm pretty sure that it is emporium-style, meaning that there's actually a lot of different vendors there. This visit, there was one booth with lots of styles in linen. Very cute. We didn't eat here this time but we have in the past and enjoyed it. This is the perfect spot for ladies luncheons or taking your mom out.
