We stopped for breakfast a couple days ago and it was good. The décor is dated. Food and service were better than expected.

I had breakfast there one morning, and it was decent. I had a side of biscuits and gravy, and the gravy was disappointing. No sausage in it, just pretty much flour, butter and maybe milk. Was expecting more flavor; this really didn't have any. The...rest of the breakfast was good however. Nothing special.More

This is one of the 1st diner restaurants we ate at when we moved to Paris and the staff and owner are so friendly. I've mostly eaten breakfast here because it's so good I'll even order it in the afternoon. They have decent prices for...a lot of food.More

I spend a lot of time in Paris and every time I'm there, I eat at Take Me Back Cafe. It doesn't look like much, but the food is wonderful. The have a good selection of food other than catfish, and it's all good.

Have only been here for breakfast. Wait staff is always pleasant, service is always prompt and attentive. Food is good. Main concern is around repeated health department inspection reports that aren't as glowing as I'd prefer when eating eggs and pork (bacon or ham).

We had 6 people for breakfast and this place was great. We did not leave hungry and everyone commented on how cheap it was for the amount of food we got. We spent $38 for 6 people for breakfast. I would absolutely eat here again....The wait staff was attentive and friendly. It has a small town feel to it.More

Took the family out for supper Friday evening. Got there around 4:30 hoping to beat the supper crowd. It took 45 minutes to get our food. I saw one couple come in not long after us and they had to sit at a dirty table...because no on took the time to clean it. That couple STILL had not got their food when we left. The food WAS good but they need a lot more help!More

I heard the fish and hush puppies at Take Me Back Cafe were good, so today I drove about 30 miles to Paris to check it out. I did not know they closed at 2 p.m. However, even though I popped in at 1:35 the...waitress was happy to take my fish order. I ordered the lunch plate of three fish fillets with three sides for $6.99. It was freshly prepared and out to the table quickly. The fish and hush puppies were very good! I also liked the vinegar slaw. The white beans were a little overcooked for my taste. I got a huge glass of unsweetened tea and learned too late I could have ordered fresh lemon. Overall, I was well pleased with the meal and plan to go again. Next time, I may get two slaw orders!More

This is the kind of place you go where everyone knows everyone. The food is home cooked and appears to be made to order. The prices are very reasonable, the portions ample, and the staff makes you feel right at home. A welcome respite from...the normal "feed 'em and shoo 'em out" most restaurants have.More

Delicious food, general helpings and a great local place to eat!! Wait times usually depend on the crowd but normally we do not have to wait long.

Had catfish twice & it has been consistently good. Basic service with friendly staff. Clean facility & seem to be well liked by the local folks.
