Under NEW owners and their GRAND OPENING was July 17, 2017. They've completed gutted the OLD CHCafe, and this new one is state-of-the-art in the kitchen. Much larger than the old cafe because they took in most of the meat/deli side of the old place....More

Won't come back here. Dirty. No paper towels in either restroom. I came see that they don't have them in the kitchen either. Understaffed. Owner came in and didn't lend a hand. 30+ minutes wait for breakfast. No thanks.

I love the chopped beef sandwich here and the chicken fried steak is delicious too! The kids always ask to stop here on road trips and we are happy to oblige!

terrible service; terrible food; long wait; there is nothing positive that I can say. The Deli and Bakery next door is much better even though more pricey

This is an old fashion, old town diner. Uses oil linen tablecloths (red/white checkerboard). Has about 15 tables. Ceilings have water stain and bathroom needs lots of work but the hospitality and feel of old town is very good. Remember this is old town restaurant;...More

Plenty of tables and fast service...the BBQ smells will tell you it's great food. The kolaches are good (not as good as the ones in La Grange) and the cinnamon rolls are yummy. Their potato salad (even with onions in them) are good too.
