“VERY consistent - Comfort food”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

They've been open for well over 25 years and I don't think they've changed a bit, except for the better. It's food like your mom would make you for lunch - quiches, sandwiches cut in triangles, pretty little salads (always with cheese and ranch dressing, no choices, it seems, but it's a good salad as it is), chicken spaghetti, flavored teas. Ambiance could use work, especially in such a charming location, but it's ok.
And there is one dessert, that.. I've been unable to catch on the menu .. that is simply marvelous - they don't serve it often because they tell me it takes 2 days to make. I can't describe it well, except it's raspberry with custard, and a light crust. .and it melts in your mouth. They call it "Mother's Angel Kiss". I wish I could find an app for my smart phone to let me know when it's available, hahah .It's that good.

“An Old Favorite”
Reviewed May 14, 2012

This is one of those quiet hometown places that just gets better over the years. It's definitely a Chick Place - walk in at lunch and the estrogen levels will overwhelm you. But there's a reason the ladies eat here: really, really good food. Everything on the menu is freshly prepared. The atmosphere is a little noisy and crowded (imagine a tea party at your aunt's house), but I'll keep coming back for the amazing chicken salad.

“Good food, good service, a nice cozy tea-room atmosphere”
Reviewed May 10, 2012

I always get the soup, salad and assorted sandwiches, but they have daily specials of quiches and casseroles. I had broccoli-cheese soup, pimento cheese, tuna, and egg salad sandwiches and the fruit salad. The quality is always good. It is frequented mainly by ladies, but I go there as anyway because the food is so good consistently. Also you can phone in an order and do pickup.

“A long-time fixture in LJ”
Reviewed May 4, 2012

I can't believe that no one has reviewed this place before. Applesway has been in business in Lake Jackson for at least 30 years (I don't remember the exact year it opened). The food is soups, salads, sandwiches, quiches and casseroles. They always have salads, sandwiches and broccoli cheese soup, which is excellent. In addition, they have a soup of the day, a quiche of the day, and a casserole of the day,as well as varying dessert choices. I am particularly fond of their hot fudge cake. Everything is fresh and prepared daily, and I don't think I have ever gotten anything bad here. The soups are particularly good. Service is generally prompt and attentive, but not overbearing. I usually eat here for lunch about once a month or so and have been doing so for years.
