It was a delicious piece of coconut creme pie that I enjoyed as my lunch. There was so many great options it was hard to choose so I will have tp go back for more pie! What a lovely quaint town with eclectic shops and friendly owners and staff. Loved my visit! Will return soon to try breakfast next time... More

This was a fun place to visit with friends. Our waitress was new, but acted like she just landed on the planet. She didn't even know what kind of soft drinks they served. Anyway, had the cheesesteak (overcooked) and the chocolate dream pie. I'd suggest the chocolate meringue instead. I'm not sure if they make their own whipped cream, but... More

The Shed is popular with car people and motorcycle riders alike. The home cooked food is well worth the ride and the service has always been good for us even when they are busy. Don't forget to try the desserts also. My wife and I have made that our turning around point several times and never been disappointed.

The restaurant had a 30 minute wait to be seated, and when we were seated, it was very crowded and loud. It was during the arts festival, so maybe it's not that busy at other times. The food took about 30 minutes to be delivered. The veggie plate lunch was served in four styrofoam containers on a diner plate, pretty... More

This was our second trip to this restaurant and a completely different experience. The chicken fried steak was full of grizzle...could not cut it with a knife. We informed our waitress and she told us to tell the cashier! She did not offer to replace the meal. We told the cashier, who ended up being the manager. He did not... More

This used to be the best place to go and eat home cooked meals. The food is still good but the service has gone down hill. U will wait long time to get seated. I live close by and have eaten here many times. We don't go anymore cause the service is terrible. The last 3 times we went couldn't... More

We got breakfast and it came out cold. Not warm, but cool to the touch. The eggs were very small. The service was OK. They really need to upgrade their bathrooms. The is only one for men and one for ladies. They are incredibly small and have wooden floors. It looked like their business had dropped off. They did not... More

My father and I went here while on business on the recommendation of the person we were up there to meet. The food was amazing, the staff were friendly and service oriented, and the atmosphere was down-home, low key. We both had the chicken friend steak and it was, in a word, perfect. So tender you could cut it with... More

It has been over a year since my last visit and it's certainly NOT The Shed that I remember! We visited on Sunday 9/6 and ate in the entry eating area, it was hot, stuffy and pesky, nasty flies dominated the dining area. It took a certain amount of time to be seated, our order was taken promptly & our... More

We are a genuine small town cafe in East Texas. The population of our town is 375. However, our cafe, The Shed Cafe, has been voted the #1 cafe in all of East Texas. We offer and are famous for our chicken fried steak, fried catfish and our Thursday night Steak Night when we serve our certified black angus beef steaks and our famous hamburgers. Then, to top it all off, we have our homemade pies which people drive for miles to get! Come Get Fed at The Shed. You will be glad you did.
