We had the 209 cheeseburger with cheddar and onion rings. What a bargain at $7.00 and the food was hot and plenty for us to split! We did not have room for dessert but they looked delicious!

This diner is attached to a gas station, but don't let that fool you. They serve standard American fare. The wait staff is friendly, efficient and polite, Don't expect gourmet. This is comfort food.

This is a wonderful cafe. I live close by and get to experience it a lot. We have always been satisfied with the food and the prices are reasonable. The beef tips with mushroom gravy is my favorite. Highly recommend!

We happened on this place because of the Trip Advisor app. It's now our go to restaurant as we travel along I-40 to or from the mountains! The service, the food, and the staff were all outstanding.

The Haywood 209 Cafe is a newly opened and renovated American traditional diner connected to Sam's Mart in the heart of the Ironduff community in Crabtree, Waynesville, N.C. Dining options include hearty breakfasts (all the staples) bacon and eggs, biscuits and gravy, pancakes, omelets, country ham, hashbrowns and homefries, etc. and home-style country dishes for lunch and dinner e.g. burgers, rib-eyes, country-fried steak, beef tips, chicken tips, reubens, chilidogs, and the like. Located in the same building that had been "The Haywood Cafe" for over thirty years previously under several names and owners, with a large and loyal customer base. Now back in action after almost ten years being closed down and vacant, much to the delight of the community, and still going strong since March of 2015
