The Iron Hen's Farm-to-Table menu has something for everyone. The food was the freshest I've eaten since I spent the weekend on my college roommate's family farm 30 years ago! The atmosphere is like a bright country kitchen and the clientele is age and race...More

I can't say enough about their fruit served with breakfast. Pecan pancakes are great... Better than Cracker Barrel. Great selection of coffee.

We ordered the Shrimp & Grits and were not disappointed. It is a very spicy version and I really enjoyed it. Quaint, tiny restaurant beside a park. My hubs ordered the Collard Eggrolls and they were delicious. We saw lots of dishes as they went...More

Lunch was excellent. I had a chicken salad filled with fresh vegetables, and all dishes come with a deceleration egg. Friendly attentive staff. A very popular local spot.

The staff was very friendly, and the food was excellent. I had the grits with spinach and goat (very filling) and my daughter had the banana pancakes. We both were very full and liked our meals.

Are pancakes all they serve? I was looking for a dinner menu and all I find is pancakes. Do they not serve vegetables, meats, etc., for the dinner menu?

We are an owner-operated coffee shop, cafe, and catering company, with an award-winning chef. We serve organic, fair trade coffee; local, seasonal, and sustainable food daily. It is our mission to connect the food we serve to the farm it came from and to the people at our tables. We favor organic and North Carolina grown, but make concessions in both areas in order to highlight other farmers and producers with time-honored methods and very good products. We pride ourselves in being responsible both locally and globally, by recycling, reducing waste, and insuring all disposable products are eco-sound. We look forward to exchange between chef/staff and community in order to grow, and to meet the needs of those we serve.
