My husband and I drove over from Memphis on a Saturday just to get out of town. The brunch was really good. I had the scotched egg and my husband had the Farmers Breakfast. My dish was well prepared and was just delicious. My husband,...unfortunately had a sausage that was underdone and had to be sent back twice. I will say that we were give a piece of cheese cake as compensation and it was the best chees cake we have ever eaten! So much better than a sausage patty :). We will go back again.More

I’m so sorry to say that the new management hasn’t brought back the quality and value of the cafe. The prices were a little high before, but now they’re higher after the pandemic reopening. I’ve eaten one good meal with them. Therefore the ‘average’ rating....The Quality of meat in the burger paddy was top notch, but the garnishes were below even fast food. Garlic on top of garlic; and that’s all I taste now that I’ve left... all I small from my eating partner. I gave my personal choices for how I wanted it fixed, as did my partner. However, they weren’t followed. For the price, I should get it my way! Whew. We stink!! Lol. Friends outside this little city; please reconsider driving out of the way for this restaurant.More

Another surprise in little Wilson, AR is this cafe. Beautiful interior that takes pride in its town. The food is awesome! Everything my family had was so good. Save room for the donut bread pudding (or get it to go like we did). Out of...this world good!More

A group of about 15 of us traveled up to Wilson from Memphis last Sunday specifically to have lunch at the Wilson Cafe. The choices were difficult to make. Most everyone ordered something different and there was not one dissatisfied customer in our group! I...am really looking forward to going back there to try a different entree'! The staff? Very professional and very nice.More

This restaurant is a hidden gem, located in the cutest downtown square in the middle of cotton fields. The food was delicious and reasonably priced for the quality. I had the blue plate (catfish on the day we visited) special and it was delicious. Definitely...worth the visit.More

Simply put, Wilson Cafe has everything desired in hospitality and food. Although initially hesitant, I now love this place. I remain amazed with the friendliness shown by my server, in addition to exceptional quality and remarkable taste of each dish. Both are a must for...fine dining. So....I selected chicken salad sandwich, soup, and buttermilk pie. All I can say is...more, more, more. This is the best restaurant ever. I can't wait until business takes me there again.More

This restaurant was a very pleasant surprise. You would expect to see an upscale restaurant of this caliber in West Little Rock, but not in a Delta town of 900. The town has a great story and the restaurant is a part of the town...history. The crab cake appetizer was very good. We had the chicken and pork chop for entrees - they were excellent. Doughnut bread pudding was very good for dessert as well as the chocolate cake. Had French Truck coffee out of Memphis with dessert. This restaurant is great: great vibe, great food and great service. We were there on 8-24-19.More

This is a high-quality restaurant in an unusual little town, which features an outstanding state archeological museum across the lovely town square from the cafe, and an outstanding school.

Good and atmosphere were great. However wait staff need to wash their aprons. In a neat location. Worth the trip.
