We went to Cook's for Thanksgiving dinner and the food was fantastic! Fresh, tasty and the buffet was super clean and they took care of all of the people with superb customer service.

Best place to eat in Deland PERIOD! Desserts are to die for. Service is great. Don't be turned off because it is a buffett. I don't like buffets but this is sooo different

We were surprised that there were different prices depending on what you get, even though it is a buffet. Despite that oddity, the food was very good and so was the pie we shared afterward.

This was a delightful experience. The food was excellent, the service was excellent and we went early before touring the Stetson Mansion. We got in, ate in leisure, enjoyed it immensely and we are planning to take a group from our church in Orlando. I...More

The food is okay, but the atmosphere is rather drab. It's run of the mill food... not bad, but certainly nothing to get excited about. I had a chicken pita sandwich, and it was a bit on the wee side. If you like to have...More

I loved the Holiday House! We ate there at least 2 times per week and all Holidays! It is now called Cooks Café. It is just not the same. The salad bar is sloppy looking, drippings everywhere, even on the floor. The hot bar is...More

A small but tasty cafe tucked inside the mainstreet building downtown Deland. Started in 1983. Fresh, cooked to order burgers, sandwiches and fresh salads. Homemade soups and bread bowls. Homemade desserts to die for. Low price but big in quality.
