Very good food and service here. Young man who waited on us did a good job. Chicken salads were very good as were the onion rings. My friend had the pasta alfredo and liked it. The carrot cake was outstanding. Owner Mark was very friendly. Ask to see the safe in back. Neat old Mosley safe. We would go back.

This place has good service, nice atmosphere and great deserts. The red velvet cake was moist and fantastic. Next time I come through, I want to try out the Shrimp and grits. The hamburger I had today was on Jalapeño bread and was unique.

I was able to talk co-workers into joining me here for lunch. Was not disappointed. They are a little understaffed, but able to keep a reasonable pace for seating and serving. The staff that is there, is very polite and friendly. We ended up with 2 orders of the southwestern egg rolls, as they are delicious! Our meals came out... More

My friend brought me to Carthage for a late birthday lunch. We noticed the homemade bread on the counter when we entered. There were so many choices that looked and sounded delicious but I had to try the chicken salad between two slices of nut bread and potato soup. It was beyond good! We had a slice of buttermilk pie... More

We were driving from Missouri to Southern Texas and wanted to have lunch in a quiet small historic town off main roads and found this little gem on the main square by talking to the locals. Several we spoke to highly recommended it. This is a small friendly restaurant run by Mark and Jena Van Winkle. Jena mostly runs the... More

Good food, casual coffee house atmosphere, not a Typical Tea Room. Great place for lunch and the dinner menu has an interesting variety, as well. Save room for dessert, they always have beautiful cakes and pies.

This is a small little restaurant on the square in Carthage. It is easy to overlook. I highly recommend the place. It has a unique menu, friendly staff, and is a clean place.

I ordered sweet tea and the half chicken salad sandwich with cup of baked potato soup. The service was great; the server was friendly and efficient. The food was really good ... I highly recommend them for lunch.

The food is always excellent...perfectly cooked and well seasoned. Staff are always courteous, friendly and provide great service. Off the beaten path...but so worth going!

We dine at the Texas Tea Room regularly and all of the food we have ever eaten was delicious and given in hearty portions. Reminds you of going to Sunday dinner at your grandmother's. The wait staff is very attentive and the owners are usually on site and know most people by name. One of my favorite restaurants in Carthage.
