As an out of tower I was introduced to Longstreet by my brother and it became my breakfast stop for my 4 days in Gainesville. Terrific place to eat buffet style fresh food especially the miuffins. A must eat place for anyone visiting.

Always great home cooked food! Special fried Catfish was amazing and fresh, Mac N Cheese rocks and more! Too much to choose from. Bring your appetite and stretchy pants for sure!

the mashed potatoes. They were very bland and had no taste at all. However, the chicken legs, chicken tenders, fried pork chops, and brunswick stew were all very good.

I'm not a native Gainesvillian, but I don't get the hype. It's OK, and the biscuits are big (called Cat Heads), but there are better biscuits at Rabbit Town Café. The veggies are good, but pretty salty. It's home cooking, but I think it's a little pricey.

I only had breakfast here but if lunch and dinner is as good as breakfast it's good. The country style breakfast is good. They give big portions so come hungry!

Do yourself a favor and enjoy a delicious meal here. Served cafeteria style, you can pick out salads, several entrees, multiple fresh vegetables, and mouth watering desserts. The staff is super friendly and always there for a tea refill when needed. The prices are excellent and you can leave with a full meal generally for under $10-12 per person. Their... More

We usually stop here quite often to bring home food for dinner. Nice buffet with many choices. Sometimes we will cook our own meat at home but get vegetables, cornbread, etc.... at Longstreet. The prices are fair and honestly I can pick up food here cheaper than I can make it at home !!

Thank becsmith42
