We love going to Hayes Barton Dessertery! The food is fantastic and the atmosphere is quaint and delicious. The pork lines are super yummy. Don’t forget to save room for one of the super gigantic pieces of cake. peanut butter fudge is our favorite!

I guess spotty is how I would describe it. My wife went once and loved it but today she was dissatisfied. The burger was just Okay, the fries were good but my soup was not just warm. great 1940s photos on the wall.

Growing up in the South, I had heard of tomato pie and fried green tomatoes, but never had tried either one. The wonderful thing about summer in NC is the availability of heirloom tomatoes. We were dining a Hayes Barton Cafe and Frank's Heirloom Tomato...More
