Comments: Opened June 6, 2013, in the former site of The French Quarter Café. “Dining with a Southern Flare” is their theme, and the food is fantastic! Mark had the best fried haddock sandwich ever tasted, lightly breaded on a hard roll with tomatoes and lettuce, including a side (which was a chef salad too big to finish.) Others when we were there had the breakfast menu. Marian had the fish with grits, Bill a stack of pancakes, and John a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich. Everyone proclaimed they would go back! Mia was our most wonderful waitress. Very broad menu and the house specials look promising. A distinctive strawberry lemonade enjoyed by all, with continuous refills. Very pleasant inside, we were near the large windows looking out on Arnett, so the space well illuminates the numerous paintings by local artist Dunstan Luke. Norman said they are definitely here to stay. This is a must-try!
Located at the corner of Warwick and Arnett, across Warwick from the Arnett Library, the Arnett Café is easy to find. There is plenty of parking on Arnett.
In the back, to the left, is the entrance to a smaller dining area...
All the walls are decorated with many painting by a local artist, and are available for sale.The menu contains a nice assortment of breakfast and lunch options and everything we have tried so far has been great.
We have seen many reviews over the past year and they have all been very favorable. Everyone is impressed by the food and the friendly owners and staff.
