I've been trying to visit Masada Cafe for a few years and finely got there! I found out it had been closed for about a year because the lady running it had become ill. They now have a new member running the cafe and they try to be open most days.
Come here for real, down home soul food served by church members who can't wait to see you enjoy your meal. It is set up cafeteria style for you to indicate your choices. The basic meal is a meat (on our day there was baked chicken, fried chicken, turkey wings, ham, oxtail in gravy, and ham), two sides (mac and cheese, braised cabbage, baked beans, lima beans, and stuffing), corn bread, and either white rice or red rice. We ordered a huge portion of oxtails over white rice and gravy, cabbage, lima beans, the perfectly fried chicken with fluffy white rice, mac and cheese to die for and braised cabbage with a kick . Oh did those home baked desserts look yummy, but we were too full to order any. Our bill was $22, including drinks (only nonalcoholic available) and we left with enough for lunch the next day.
The cafeteria was as clean as a whistle and the staff helpful and friendly. Although we were the only eat in customers, they were doing a booming takeout business on the day of our visit.
