On our second visit to the Branson Cafe we were planning just to get desserts. Once there and seeing the special was chicken and dumplings one of my favorites we decided to get an order. The dumplings are a little thicker than I am used to but overall they are very tasty. Since we really came to try out the... More

They are located on the main street headed down to the Branson Landing which can get congested and backed up. Parking is on the street at an angle and it can get tricky backing out. They close at 7:00 which is early for dinner. I arrived a little before 6:30 which was getting close to closing. There were 2 other... More

Read all the positive reviews and decided we had to try it out. A great little cafe with home style cooking. Everyone was friendly and the food was good. We would eat here again!

Friend and I stopped for lunch while visiting Branson. It was fantastic. Best Mac and cheese I have ever eaten. I wish we were staying longer. Would definitely make this a stop for breakfast and dinner.

My wife and I ate breakfast here one morning. The food and service were really good. It is a small place so you need to arrive early to avoid waiting. It would be worth the wait though. It is in downtown Branson so traffic can get backed up early so you need to leave early to get there. I regret... More

Food was good. The Hostess and our waitress need some lessons on restaurant etiquette. Hostess was very rude. Our waitress, when we saw her, didn’t even stay long enough at our table for refills or ask if we wanted dessert. Of all the restaurants in the area, we chose Branson Cafe. We will not return, Think about it ladies next... More

Basic good food. I had the fried chicken, $10.29. The chicken breast was not dry, but moist and good. My wife had the country fried steak, $8.99, which she said was okay, but chewy. Meals come with two side items and a dinner roll.
