This is the quintessential small town country café. Breakfast is good. Chicken fried steaks and chicken fried chicken smothered with cream gravy and sides is standard. Homemade pies are local favorite.

Breakfast here is very good. Lunch and dinner meals are also very good and home cooking style. I’ve gone here many times and it’s always good to excellent. I would rate this the best place in Wylie to eat. Prices are very reasonable.
