We had a wonderful experience last night. I agree with Amy P’s comment that it is a hidden gem. The food was excellent and reasonably priced for what we got. Our server, Angela was wonderful as well. We started with the Baked Brie for two (12.75) Spectacular is an understatement. It had pecans, maple syrup and sliced apples with an... More

One of Morganton's finest. A hidden Gem. This restaurant does not disappoint, with food being fresh and excellent! The chef does a fantastic gourmet meal that deserves five stars. Service is great and the atmosphere is old charm as if you are eating in the victorian era but with modern flare. The restaurant is currently decorated so beautifully with Christmas... More

What a very lovely and quiet cafe; we were in a room (4 of us) alone as it was early. We had a very sweet young lady who took our orders and attended to our meal. I had steak au poivre. It was one of the best steaks I have ever had! Cooked exactly to perfection. The others in our... More

Maybe some things on the menu would be beyond the norm for people in Burke County, but I was warned that this place is more geared towards the older crowd (warned by my 55+ yr old coworkers), and now I kind of understand that assessment. The baked brie was just a heated wheel of brie with a few toppings tossed... More

I found the atmosphere cozy, romantic and comfortable. An elegant restaurant without stuffy formalities. I love the decor and use of linens and proper table settings. The food was absolutely wonderful as was the staff. I can think of nothing that could have improved our visit on our special day. I highly recommend coming here to dine and be treated... More

Had the pleasure of dining at King Street Cafe while attending a conference in Morganton. It sits directly across the street from the Burke County Public Library. They are open for lunch and dinner and have a Sunday brunch during the warmer months. Our waiter was very attentive but not overly annoying. The chef even came out to see if... More

Not knowing the area we found this restaurant on the "net" and having good reviews decided to give it a try. On arriving we were quite impressed with a beautiful old home set in a quiet neighborhood. It was a Sat. night, no reservations and parking was easy, very close. They had no problem fitting us in. A server met... More
