Had the French Dip!!!! They know how to do it... I would highly recommend this as well. My girlfriend had the quiche, fruit salad, and poppy seed bread. She was also very impressed. We will be visiting here again for sure...

My wife eats here all the time. There are a quiche and sandwich shoppe next to Five gold Monkeys and Rouses. My favorites are the Reuben and French dip. The pies are also very very good with french silk being my favorite, The bread is really good too. Cost about 10 bucks a head

Great service and food! We had Lima bean and sausage soup, quiche Lorraine, chicken salad, a club sandwich, and strawberry pie. The strawberry pie was the best. In a shopping center next to Rouses. Would definitely come back again for lunch. They also have a huge refrigerator full of entrees that you can purchase and carry out with you.

I had the salad plate with chicken salad, fruit salad, and pasta salad with a slice of lemon poppy seed bread. The chicken salad was very good with chopped pecans and celery in it. The fruit salad was fresh with... More

Near Spring Hill College, this is a great little place if you like cloth tablecloths and really good food. I eat here occasionally when I'm tired of fast food lunch. It's quiet and is frequented by wealthy seniors, lawyers and the occasional college professor. Food is always good and fresh. I love the Blooming Tomato with their delicious chicken salad... More

We were looking for a place for a light lunch and were sent here. This was a great choice. A slot in a strip mall, plain decor but the tastiest quiche I have ever had. Good gumbo, nice salad

This is a cozy little restaurant with outdoor seating. Outdoor dining area was clean. Small menu and only open for lunch. Highly recommend the fresh quiche. I had the asparagus quiche and it was fantastic. I didn't care for the poppy seed bread or dressing. The dressing has a very unique taste. The fruit salad was sweet and fresh. Friends... More

The Chat-A-Way Café is a small restaurant that is tucked away on Old Shell Road in Mobile, AL, that is only open during the week at lunch. There are a few quiches and soups of the day listed on the chalkboard located on the sidewalk. As we walked in, there were about 40 tables in the efficiently decorated space. The... More
