“fresh”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

the chicken salad is great with walnuts in it! Everything is home made/fresh made. Great little get a way for the afternoon. Great shopping there with unique gifts and antiques.

“Lunch with the girls.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

The Doves Nest is a nice place to stop for lunch if you are out with your girlfriends shopping around the square but not the best place to go if you have little ones in tow. The food is good there but the prices are a bit too high.

“Fun quaint boutique restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

After a fun time shopping in the little boutique you must go to the Dove's Nest for lunch. We had the best sandwich plate ever. The server was so nice and it was a cute place. Very quaint & nostalgic.I love the town square in Waxahachie and will make a point of going back there next time I go to the city

“Great lunch place”

Great, friendly service, in the heart of town, irresistable cute shopping in front of store, very busy, clearly a town favorite, lots of antiques nearby. Everything was homemade and creative.

“Girly, but Good Burger”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012 via mobile

Disclaimer, I'm a guy. This is a girly restaurant - from the menu to the decor. I went with my wife and girls. They had sandwiches and loved them. I had the burger and fruit. The burger was very tasty. Fruit was fresh and a big portion. Was a bit diss appointed that they did not have ketchup or BBQ sauce. Prices a big high for lunch - $9 for lunch burger. Overall, a good experience.
