American Cafe serves american food, breakfast all day, and some special lunch choices that people come from 20 miles away for. Totally worth your trip when you have a chance or you are headed to or from the beach or casino via Hwy 18 through Lafayette, (near McMinnville.)
Owner Holly and her parents Sue and are very personable and a pleasure to talk with any time. They are down to earth and always nice. We just love love them as they always take time to talk with us if possible.
Cook: Today it was long term Dustin. He is a Chef level cook. His presentation of dishes are compareable to the finer type restaurants. His dishes are very nice with no grease, on even normally greasy dishes. No suprises as all with Dustin's plate's. They are top quality with all food always cooked to perfection. Even his salads are perfect every time. The food quality is actually amazing.
Sue, makes the best desserts that are usually available. Don't pass on Sue's home made suprises. You will appreciate her efforts.
We have seen consistancy in excellent food as well as excellent service in a fun setting.
You owe it to your self to try this American Cafe. You will want to return. I know because we have eaten their over 200 times.
Well, I don't know what happened since the first two reviews, but I think the place changed hands. We were there for breakfast and the food was OK, but fairly expensive for what you got. I didn't notice any particular Southern influence, but wasn't there for that anyway. Lunch looks like a much better deal, but after breakfast, we weren't eager to return. We spent $22 (before tip) for two for breakfast and didn't have anything fancy.
This is an AWESOME little cafe. Family atmosphere, GREAT service and FANTASTIC FOOD!!! Home made recipes. Not out of a can. Home-made corned beef, chicken fried steak, and the grand finale for me was the authentic Souther SWEET TEA!!! Yummy!!! Stop by and get some good grub for yourself. I HIGHLY recomend it!!!!!
