How can you go wrong with a small town, downtown cafe? We like their breakfast food the best, but everything is awesome. It's the closest thing to eating at home, with grandma at the stove. The portions are perfect, and there are plenty of items to choose from. The servers are super, and they make you feel welcome. Even when... More

Cute decor and fast friendly service. The food was out very quickly. All homemade and fresh. I had the grilled chicken sandwich which comes coveted in cheese and sautéed mushrooms (plus fresh decent lettuce and tomato) with a side of more sautéed mushrooms...quite yummy and very reasonable. There's breakfast all day, and I saw several people enjoying what appeared to... More

Great atmosphere in downtown Wylie, TX. Friendly people with good service and love the home cook'in! My favorite is the brunch where you can get breakfast or lunch. The high school football teams always do a big team meal here the day before a big game once a year.

Smack in the middle of old town Wylie, the food served here is like your grandmother used to make from scratch. The menu is totally flexible and will stretch your imagination on how many ways to mix and match eggs, meat, biscuits, hash browns and hot cakes or waffles. Here you can experience great food, reasonable prices and friendly faces... More

Ok yall folks. For you have seen my reviews as I have traveled the world. We aren't talking the dining room at the George V in Paris, or the American bar at the Savoy in London. This is small town Texas, a bedroom community just outside of Dallas. One short main street lined with buildings that date from 1900. Ballard... More

Had not eaten here before but glad we did. The food and service were great. Quite busy but it did not affect the service. Employees were friendly and attentive without being obnoxious. We will definitely come here again on our next visit to Wylie.
