Any visit to Waxahachie should include lunch at The Dove's Nest, the fabulous restaurant located in an historic building in Downtown Waxahachie. Just opening the front door and seeing all of the latest and greatest merchandise in the gift store is enough to make me smile. But as soon as we are seated in the restaurant, I am already anticipating the daily pasta special, house ice tea and warm bread pudding! Of course, all of their menu items are delicious, especially the soups and salads.

The owners, Cindy and Andrew Burch, are usually present in or around the restaurant, which always adds to my experience. They take the time to chat, visit or introduce us to new friends or remind us of old ones.

The Dove's Nest is a unique, one-of-a-kind dining and shopping experience. The combination of the gift store and restaurant, the food and the friendly service make it definitely worth "flying South!"

Fabulous food and sophisticated for a small town. They are known for their chicken apricot salad, but the "specials" are great. Love the chocolate bourbon pecan pie, which should be shared. The salads are large wonderful and filling. Soups are hearty and yummy, best is The White Chili. The store is always packed with wonderful goodies. Great gifts at reasonable prices.
