You are greeted with a basket of biscuits accompanied by an incredible apple cinnamon compote. We found food with high quality. Chicken and dumplings alone worth the visit. Sides such as baked sweet potato and roasted squash incredibly well done and presented. Service was spot on. Fried chicken outstanding. Two large eating areas available. Spot not to miss.

The Moose Café is a real farm to table restaurant and their breakfast is among the best you will find anywhere in the south! They have what is certainly the best biscuits on earth. Now this is something I know as I have worked and worked to match Moose Café biscuits and they have the best. They alone are worth a visit, but everything they serve for breakfast is outstanding. You can't make a bad choice. If I have to pick nits, the service is a little slow, but hey it's not fast food. I really want to go for dinner and see what they do with that, but I can give breakfast my highest recommendations.

Let's see: a grilled cheese sandwich with bland, processed cheese--not good. Cream of sweet potato soup--make that lukewarm (at best) cream of sweet potato soup--not good. Anemic biscuits with "apple butter" containing seed hulls and right out of the refrigerator--not good. Apple dessert with unpeeled apples and mostly crust--not good.

This is a breakfast place, and not a bad one, but lunch? Ours was a horrible experience, one that we won't try again.

Maybe since it is located in the Farmers Mkt, I was expecting more. The service was about average but the food was a bit below average.

The country fried steak was too heavily breaded. The fried chicken was ok, but just ok. The chicken and dumplings were a disappointment.

The highlight of the meal was the pintos served with chow chow and onions on the side.

I would have to be real hungry to go back.
