What a delight to find dressing BETTER than my mother's!! Did not think that could be done! All vegetables were fresh, cooked with that "southern flavor". Service was excellent!! Clean, friendly and very affordable.

I love a good hole-in-the-wall restaurant! Restaurant has served foods since 1980's...by word of mouth recommendations. Southern Soul Food for Breakfast and Lunch is just outstanding.

The first thing to say about the Davis Cafe is that it gets by with word of mouth. It has too, as the outside looks like an abandoned building. I went in thinking that the best places are often dives, so why not give it...More
