“Always good”
Reviewed 17 January 2014 via mobile

I live in nearby city and been going to Donna's for years. The buffet usually offers 2 or 3 meats and several vegetables along with soup,salad and dessert. I love the chicken pot pie. The buffet changes daily , and there is always ample fresh offerings. The staff is always great, the restaurant is clean and nicely decorated. Prices are reasonable. One of my favorite places !

“Good ole country breakfast!”
Reviewed 18 March 2013

I recently attended a business meeting at Donna's Old Town Cafe in Madisonville, TN. It was a morning meeting and we had the privilege of getting in on the wonderful breakfast bar they offer. It had several choices of common country breakfast related items to choose from. The quality of food was great, the service was very good , the atmosphere was comfortable and they also have accommodations for business meetings upstairs. If you are ever over in their neck of the woods, be sure to stop in for a bite.
