This is a locally owned restaurant with old family recipes. The homemade soups are worth waiting for. The restaurant is on the smaller side and often has a wait. You will not be disappointed in your lunch choices.

Going to this lovely little corner of Florida for years, my wife enjoys her birthday lunches here. Southern charm in a corner of a gift and florist shop. Can be a bit noisy because of low ceilings and very talkative and sociable clientele. A place for lunch only, closes by 3 PM. Excellent soups, salads and sandwiches and quiches. But... More

Mallie Kyla's is a great place to meet 'the girls' for lunch. The food is fresh and the choices are wonderful. The desserts are even better! Generous portions too! Always a joy to lunch here. After lunch take a little stroll through the shop.

This is inside a local florist and gift shop. The food is fresh daily and so delicious. Save room for dessert! Mallie Kyla's is where the locals eat.

Daily special potato soup made with red potatoes cooked and diced perfectly. Not mushy not too firm. Sandwich was a blend of avocado, turkey and sprouts. The homemade dressing on the... More

This place is a crossover of a Cracker Barrel and a tea room. It's nice but the dinning area is in need of a spring cleaning. Food is good. Shop area is nice but a bit over priced for the area.

It was a beautifully set up old house made into a quaint comfortable restaurant. The service was excellent, the staff very accommodating. We enjoyed the chicken salad and the homemade soups. They also have a beautiful little gift shop with unique and unusual items to buy .

We had reservations for a group of 14 for a once a month lunch. My first time here, I found it to be a charming cafe with a down home, country atmosphere and good cookin'! It has received awards for Best Small Town Restaurant for its traditional family recipes. My Meridian Club sandwich was wonderful: oven roast turkey on a... More

Good service.Usually a bit of a wait as it is a much loved place to meet friends for lunch. So many lovely options that are unique. A must do if you have the time and opportunity.

They're one of the best places in town to eat. Larie Hensley is the owner and her son Ethan Hensley is one of the chefs. Also look into adding Coney Island.
