Top Review: “We stopped here on our way to Daytona and it was the right choice!  Excellent food, innovative menu, super friendly staff.  I had an omelet with sausage gravy and potatoes–so yummy and awesome since I try and stay low gluten.  Hubs had chicken fried steak–one of the best 2-3 I’ve ever tasted.  Son had a chicken and waffle sandwich that was amazing.  And all 3 of us loved the potatoes.  Got here at 8:40 Sunday morning, seated within 15 min.  Food came quick.”Jill H.

Top Review: “We came here as a plan B after our Sunday brunch & loved our food and mimosas & peach Bellinis (large glasses). Our waiter was excellent. I had the mix & match Bennies and shared with a friend. It’s all New Orleans & Cajun food, so that has to be your thing, and it’s just a breakfast, brunch, early lunch place & closes at 2pm weekdays & 3pm weekends. The only thing we didn’t care for were the beignets-small size & overcooked.”Tamara G.

Maple Forest Cafe

Top Review: “This cafe is my new favorite spot for coffee brunch, or pizza at lunch! I absolutely adored all the decor they had around, it was nice to see the Bible verses and flags supporting veterans. I loved that they had a drive thru! And maple syrup you can purchase. We walked in with only 10 minutes until close and the friendly staff was super patient with us and made us a delicious pizza to go. Will definitely be back with my friends!”Brianna N.
