We could have come away from our weekend at The Homestead feeling resentful for overspending and not as appreciative of the experience had we not found ways to game the system. We ate several meals -- dinner after arriving and breakfast each morning -- at the Country Cafe down the road. The Country Cafe offers wonderful food and service and a great price. Dinner was delicious and very inexpensive. We were the only ones in there who weren't local regulars -- and that's so puzzling, considering the ease and value of eating there over the pricey meals and upscale ambiance at The Homestead. GET THE HOMEMADE PIE. Between the six of us, we tried several different kinds, including the peanut butter which everyone raves about on TripAdvisor. One of us got the peach cobbler. Oh my goodness, we've never had such delicious desserts. Honestly, they are fabulous. We paid about $40 for six people to eat a hearty breakfast at the Country Cafe, and it's $30 per person at The Homestead. We ate at Sam Snead's Tavern one night with another family who arranged it, but ate no other $$$ meals at The Homestead. That family had been going to The Homestead for 13 years and had never eaten at the Country Cafe -- we took them with us for breakfast the next morning, and they went crazy over it and over the fact that they had not discovered it before. It's not crowded there at all, getting a table was not a problem. If word really gets out about the Country Cafe, that will change!

Almost next door to the Homestead, breakfast is a much better value than paying $27 pp at the Homestead. And it's delicious too.

There's nothing I like more than a little cafe on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere. This place was pretty good. I ordered chicken wings (very good) and a cheeseburger (great!). Not very exciting, I know but it lets me compare it with other places I've been. Great service too. Get a piece of pie before you leave!

Good food and a nice change from the Homestead Hotel restaurants. Good for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The Country Cafe is about 1 mile South of Hot Springs on the 220 and a refreshing change to the rather stuffy and chilly ambience of some of the other local hostelries. The place is warm, welcoming and well run. My wife and I breakfasted on two superb, freshly-cooked omelets with toast and as much coffee as we needed for $17. Well worth the short drive if you are in search of fresh air and good value amidst delightful countryside.
