Dropped in this spot for a quick tasty lunch! I was disappointed. I ordered hot open faced roast beef and had pasta salad and a mini cheesecake to go with it. All for under $10!

This cafe is not far from the Tubman museum. The quality of the food is excellent and the staff are very friendly. It gets very busy during lunch house so avoid that if you can.

This cafe is located very near the visitors center and was recommended by them. Great little place for soup and sandwiches. Funky decor. We would definitely come back here if we are ever in Macon again.

There is a separate room in the back for large parties. I assume that room would need to be reserved.
