Description: WE ARE CLOSED FROM JANUARY 1-15, 2015 Hours: Mon,Thur - 11-9 Fri & Sat - 11-10 CLOSED ON TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY'S Looking for that sweet stop for a classic treat? Perhaps a five star dinner? Look no further! From the old time soda fountain, to the hand patted burgers, Bon ViVant is that hole-in-the-wall diner not to be overlooked. Settle right in with our famous "Old Glory" chicken salad sandwiches or indulge in our own twist on pasta with the Petti de Pollo dish. Trust the locals on the town favorite meatloaf, even add a hand spun milkshake to the mix! No matter what you decide on, everything on our menu is simply delightful, as shown by our recent "award for small town dining" by trip advisor. If that hasn't convinced you stop by perhaps a cup of freshly brewed coffee and our massive, freshly baked cinnamon rolls and pies from the bakery will help make your decision easier. Rumor has it our treats are better than any grandmothers' recipe (or at least that's what we're told). Whatever you put your fork into around here we can guarantee you won't be disappointed. So come on in and let us welcome you to the South's finest! See you soon!

During a recent visit to Callaway Gardens when many restaurants are still closed for the season, we tried Bon Vivant for a late lunch. We were immediately taken with the decor which looked like you were stepping back into a snack shop or diner from fifty years ago. Service and food was very good especially the homemade meatloaf and mashed potatoes and broccoli salad. Altogether a very pleasant place for lunch.

I was looking for good food without the big price tag! Bon Vivant has the small-town cafe feel with some progressive flavors. I chose the homemade meatloaf which has a southwestern taste - cilantro & onions. It was a nice big slab of meatloaf and came with delicious mashed potatoes and a broccoli salad. Everything was very good and was well worth the $12 pricetag! My server was sweet and friendly - without ever being annoying.

Great Food, thanks to Chefs Timothy, Tony and Sean, Fun and enjoyable atmosphere thanks to Kaissa, Kelli, Harman and Wesley. Server Kaissa was knowledgeable about the menu items and was prompt to tend to our needs. Steak was delicious and so tender you could cut it with a fork. Portions are huge so you get your moneys worth. Everything was yummy, can't pick a favorite. Next time I will "try" and save room for dessert. I don't think you will be disappointed when you try this restaurant.
