We had a great experience at Maxine's. The food was really good and the server (Linda) was very friendly. Highly recommend.

Home style cooking is very good. Biscuits and gravy and all the way to eggs Benedict or steak and eggs for breakfast. They also have daily specials or you can order off the menu.

My husband loves this place and so when I came back from my vacation, the very first thing he did was take me to this place for breakfast. The place is on Main Street which has limited parking and can be hard to park on a busy day. The place was a little bit busy during this wet Sunday morning... More

We stopped here for dinner driving home from Austin. Catfish dinner, chicken fried steak dinner and the pecan praline pancake with bacon. All excellent and large portions. I'm a picky pancake eater but the reviews were good so I went for it. It was excellent and enormous! It was a Friday night so there was also live music. A really... More

Already busy on a Saturday morning just after opening tells you something about Maxine's Cafe. I ordered an egg white omelette: you get five ingredients from a long list of possibilities, and you can add more for just a dollar per ingredient. Included with the omelette, I chose grits and fresh country biscuits. Everything was perfect! The egg white omelette... More

This is a fun and yummy place to have breakfast! It is delicious and tastes home-cooked! Can't speak for the lunch or dinner but I'm sure it's good too. Take your time looking at all the neat stuff on the walls and the actual building itself. The staff is always friendly, though very slow - just don't go if you... More

Athough this was our second time here, the bad rewiews made me a bit uncertain. Our experience today for breakfast was awesome! We went on a Saturday at 9:00 am. Laurie was our server. We could not have gotten a better server. She waited on us, and we quickly got our order. Many times she filled up our coffee. Our... More

This is the busiest place. Service was good and quick and attentive. Just a good historic building full of love of customers and friends you could tell by all the interacting. Local place people love to come to. Nothing to complain about here. Good food and plenty of it. Will definitely go back when in town.
