Let's Eat Cafe Restaurant Review

: Since 1993 Sam Floyd has operated this simple café in a single-level structure that he later bought and brightened up with fresh siding and paint. Breakfast is straightforward, with decent grits, sausage and even old-fashioned streak-o-lean bacon or a fine salmon patty. For lunch, try the oxtails in cold weather (a Friday special) or at any time the fried fish and grits are a good way to go. Among the sides, we recommend the collard greens. Pig ears are available for the adventurous. Homemade desserts include cobblers and cakes, with choices varying from day to day. This is the kind of restaurant that is fast disappearing from the scene, so hurry on over.
