Found this little gem on our way to the caves. The food was delicious and the portions large. The full order of biscuits and gravy was a large plates worth, I couldn’t finish it all and was thankful I didn’t order anything to go with it. Everyone was stuffed. If you like Elvis or cookie jars, there is no shortage... More

Charming Elvis-themed joint with breakfast all day! Friendly servers. Gets crowded on Sunday mornings with post-church crowd. Great family feel! Definitely recommend if you want a supremely affordable, tasty meal!

If you want comfort food, this is your place. I love the Chicken Fried Steak with mashed potatoes and gravy. The southern sweet tea is great too. The Rainbow Cafe is in the historic downtown area and fun to walk around after your meal.

We came upon the cafe as we were wandering through town. We had plate lunches and they were so good. I got liver and onions and loved it! The mashed potatoes were actually real! Friendly service and good value!

The food is down homey! You can find things like liver & onions...don't find that too many places...good selection of sandwiches & a daily noon special! AND, you can order half order too for the lighter eaters

This is the place where you are either a tourist or known by everyone else in the restaurant. I was a tourist. However, this didn't take away from the service or experience in the least. I enjoyed hearing each local character enter the restaurant and receive their greeting, or challenge, or consolation. The food was good. The coffee cup stayed... More
