“Amazing Slice of Americana”
Review of Fresh Market Cafe - CLOSED

Fresh Market Cafe
Restaurant details
Reviewed November 2, 2013

It sure does seem small and unassuming. You have to look a bit as it sits between an EXXON station and another motel. It looks homey and oh boy! is it! Lots of small tables; a single serving line for hot food cooked southern - down home style. Wife had chicken that she relished. Veggies were kinda mushy and over salted... but this IS the south! Mashed potatoes were great. Meatloaf was super with a tangy red sauce. "Mexican Corn Bread" was not dry... very moist and yummy good. We WILL visit this place again. Best dinner a couple could have for $19.00

We were staying at a Holiday Inn in New Albany, MS & located next door was a clean looking cafe, which advertised in large letters Healthy, Fresh, Nutritional. They were cafeteria-style & no salad choices. The food was spooned out with a spoon the size of an ice cream scoop, so small servings. I ordered a choice of 3 veggies & bread. My husband ordered the chicken & dumplings, which came with a couple of vegetables. Our cornbread must have been out awhile...hard & certainly not fresh. The sweet potato casserole was topped with oatmeal & lots of pepper...not to my liking. The dumplings were flavorless & very doughy. The lima beans & green beans were too salty & seasoned with pork. The corn bread casserole was flavorless. None of the choices were very healthy or fresh. The cafe should be classified as "country cooking" choices, but even then not very tasty. We would never eat there again & suggest others stay away that prefer healthy choices or at least good taste.
