“My weekend habit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

I stumbled upon this sunny gem while visiting the local QVC outlet in Malvern one Saturday afternoon. Since then I have been back countless times. When you enter the restaurant you first see the bakery case filled with their signature “Up Cakes” which are an upside down cupcake iced on three sides! Yum-o! The flavors are sweet, tangy and oh so fresh!
Now, for the menu….picture down home cooking with a cosmopolitan flair! My favorite is the “Thanksgiving Day Sandwich” box lunch. The sandwich itself is served on freshly baked Sally Lund bread, heaped high with fresh roasted turkey breast, homemade stuffing, and cranberry sauce with just a smear of mayo! With this box lunch comes a yummy deviled egg and a side of your choice…caramel applesauce, potato salad, pasta salad, fresh fruit or cole slaw….as good as your Nana made! I always get a cup of their dark roast coffee with free refills.
They serve breakfast and lunch to locals and always greet you by your first name once they get to know you!
Love, love, love this place!

“Lucnh Boxes were AMAZING!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

WOW!! What a great lunch. The Lunch Boxes are filled with Wonderful sandwiches, little red velvet cup cake, or lemon cake or key lime cake, pesto salad and my favorite a deviled egg. All wrapped in paper. Delicious. If you have an office meeting this is the place to go.

“Great little place for breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

The owner was super friendly. The food was excellent and so fresh. The grilled stickes melted in our mouth and the homemade strawberry jelly was so good. We got eggs whites so tried to even out some if the grilled sticky! We would highly recommend stopping in if like us you enjoy eating at local Mom and Pops while traveling.

“Recent newcomer - been back 4 times in a month!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

Dixie Picnic has got to be my new favorite lunch spot when I'm around Malvern. A friend recently picked up boxed lunches for us (deviled egg, side of slaw or potato salad, sandwich, and a small cake like an inverted cupcake). Beyond just being a really simple idea that is very charming, the food is all fresh and all delicious. Throw in a genuinely friendly staff and I think anyone would find something they love here. One of my new favorite things is to take other people here and spread the word.

“Boxed lunch/dinner you will love!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

Delicious sandwiches (can do gluten free) with a side and a moist, flavorful cupcake--what's not to love? Picnic in the park? Picnic on your deck or patio? Pick up some boxed lunches and entertain with ease. You couldn't prepare better yourself.
