OK Cafe Restaurant Review

: Southern iconography is everywhere at OK Cafe, and waitresses' attire harks back to the 50s. As for the menu, think tuned-up diner fare. Pancakes, waffles and monster omelets, tasty home-fries and biscuits define breakfast and brunch. Sausage and gravy on biscuits isn't bad. Among the blue plate specials are chicken potpie and country-fried steak with sides like three-cheese macaroni and the totally non-traditional brown sugar-sweetened collard greens. Thankfully, there is pepper sauce on the table to balance the dish. Big burgers made from hormone-free beef and grilled cheese sandwiches, salads and vegetarian options round out the offerings. Desserts could easily serve more than one person; we recommend the banana bread pudding or one of the milk shakes. The two wine choices couldn't be more pedestrian, but there are several good beers, including local brews. Note: At popular moments, such as Sunday brunch, wait times can be long.
