I had two eggs over easy, bacon, toast and a pancake. It was all good. I would like to try the lunch menu next.

New Owners and a newly remodeled, the Clayton Café is back and better than ever. The fried Chicken is the best, great mac and cheese and October beans. Even though I do not like fried chicken livers they are delicious. Thanks Bonnie and the staff...More

Fresh, creative and great country food. Even the owner and waitresses were friendly and wore a smile. The hostess was very helpful. We will go back to this restaurant if we are in Clayton again.

I ate breakfast here with a friend. I had an omelet and she had a waffle. Simple, no frills, but good. Prices were a lot less than most restaurants located downtown.

I remember it was fairly early when we got there on a Saturday morning, can't remember exact hours of operation. But they're only open for breakfast and lunch, only accept cash or check.
