I have never seen such a rude host! The owner Crystal made many promises at the consultation and signing that were never kept. This was my wedding and reception. Crystal agreed to have sangria at the reception as I do not like beer or wine. They're was no sangria. So the bride drank water all night. Crystal agreed to rose... More

We recently used this resturaunt for both my sister's wedding reception and a rehearsal dinner. I have never in my life met someone as rude and nasty as the owner, Crystal. She behaves as if she despises and hates children. If you have children attending any function there, be forwarned that she will yell and them AND keep your security... More

We popped in out of curiosity. The cafe is in a commercial area where you wouldn't expect to find an excellent lunch. Apparently, most of their business is from catering. Our lunches were wonderful. We shared the salmon BLT and the Skinny Cubano. We also tried the slaw, and the pasta salad. Everything we had was delicious and now we... More

I have attended about 6 receptions catered by Southern Gourmet and it is such a treat! They have a wonderful range of items with quality ingredients (and you can tell!). Today they delivered the best strawberry shortcake I have ever had as well as some exception meatballs, salsa, chicken skewers, and several other items I would do a disservice to... More

Love this place! Discovered it randomly while getting gas across the street and I am so glad I crossed the street to try it out! I tried the Cubano and it really was amazing. Got the Hoppin John on the side which I had never had but was crisp and full of flavor. Would highly recommend checking this place out!

Just ate here for the first time and it has all the comfort food I've been missing- freshly grilled paninis to order with home made sides to choose from. Blue plate specials and a great selection of take and warm meals to boot. Only negative is there's limited seating and they're only open for lunch Tuesday- Friday. I'm sure their... More

This is a great place for lunch and I am a frequent visitor. The restaurant is in an office park and has a bistro atmosphere. There are tables inside and two tables with umbrellas outside. You order at the counter, and when ready your lunch is brought to your table. There is a regular menu with an long list of... More
