Cafe Maude was great. Forst and foremost, outstanding service! The biscuits and gravy was delicious as was the omelette we had. You really cannot go wrong here! Stop in and have a great bloody mary or mimosa along with some great food!

I think this spot is best for a small group. They are not a very large restaurant. Food is very tasty, but restaurant can get loud.

I've been to this place many many times, as it's close to family members' home. I'd travel just about any distance to eat here, however. The truffle fries are my favorite, closely followed by the lamb sliders. The size on the truffle size is enough...More

I have been there maybe 3 or 4 times, never seen live music but I'd call them. We usually eat outside but I'm sure I'd know if there was music inside.
