We were disappointed in the breakfast here, considering the prices. Service was great, but we chose not to return during our stay. (For a great breakfast, go to McFarlain's!)

They have daily specials which are good and moderately priced. Desserts are beautiful....fluffy meringue pies. Typical old cafe. Our fried chicken had to be sent back as we ordered white meat, and were served dark. The waitress wanted to leave out plate with our vegetables and sides while they resubmitted our order. The chicken takes 20 minutes, did she think... More

We have eaten at the Branson Cafe several times including twice on this 3 day trip. Waitress staff is always friendly and food is good. If you are looking for fancy this is not it but if good food is what you want you won't be disappointed. Their home made Danish and cinnamon rolls are to die for.

Was very disappointed with the food here considering how highly rated it is. We all ordered omelettes, the onions and peppers were not sautéed at all and there was barley any cheese. Our hash browns where dried out and burnt. The waitress was also rude and not welcoming. Won't be going back for any reason!

Was needing a sweet fix and found this cafe. The chocolate pie was to die for. They also serve home cooked meals, but all we got was the pie.

Food was ok, I would give them another try. I ordered BBQ ribs but got cold BBQ brisket. I'm sure if I would have complained they would have made it right but I was hungry so I ate it.

The staff was very friendly. The food was delicious. Quick service. Quaint atmosphere. Affordable menu. I love the fact that there is a waitress there who has worked there for 57 years! She was adorable! And she provided excellent service!

We always eat here when in Branson. We've had all 3 meals here. Some reviews talked about poor service and so-so meals. We've never experienced either on our times here. Joyce has waitressed here for 57 years! Some of the younger folks come and go. The pies are fantastic as are their cinnamon rolls. Still reasonable on their prices. Lunch... More

Very good place to eat. Home cooking, very polite servers. You might have to stand in line for this place.
