Reviewed July 29, 2013

Nice place with good atmosphere and great food. The sandwiches are great and the deserts are rich enough for two.

“My Favorite Place to go to Lunch with the Ladies”
Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

I have been going here for several years, and it is still my favorite place to go to lunch with sister or girlfriends. The menu hasn't changed much, but the food is different from most, and has always been VERY good. The shop is always a fun place to browse and the atmosphere is wonderful.

“Resting on laurels...”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

The Dove's Nest was once the best shop and cafe in downtown Waxahachie. No longer. Try College Street Pub or Leon's Barbecue for great places to go. The shopping is better at surrounding shops...and without the strong political rhetoric that should not be part of an enjoyable experience.

“Great lunch and a gift shop that begs browsing”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

My husband and I need our Dove's Nest fix every few months. It is located in Waxahatche, TX off courthouse square. The lunch menu is great pizza, soup, salads, and sandwiches. Husband gets chicken apricot salad sandwich, I enjoy their special club sandwich which includes inside a great cheese spread. The gift shop has a unique collection of potions, gourmet food items, jewelry, and great home decorations. It's just a lovely experience. We've never had the desserts but they are huge and look delicious. It's an easy drive for the Fort Worth/Dallas metroplex and certainly worth a stop if it's on your touring route.
