My family loves going to the State Farmers Market Restaurant on a Sunday morning! The breakfast is out of this world, the service is friendly and the biscuits are HUGE! I would definitely recommend this to anybody looking for a good, home-style breakfast. It's open early in the morning which makes it convenient, most places serving breakfast on weekends aren't...

Perhaps this is what makes the Triangle area of Central NC shine but here you are deep within rural America at a restaurant in a genuine farmers market where the farmers come from all over the state to sell their harvest.....BUT..You are less then ten minutes from downtown Raleigh, the state capitol, & it's skyscrapers are clearly in view &...

Just amazing! First they give you fresh, warm baking powder buscuits and toast with butter and jam before ordering. They serve breakfast all day and it's huge and delicious. I got a chicken salad plate with 2 side and it was way too much, but all was yummy! We got free baked apple crisp for dessert. Great murals all around,... More

Long line to get in went fast. Service was friendly and all of the food was good, from breakfast to specials--baked chicken and mashed potatoes were great

We just had our first visit to this restaurant. Love the ambience! Delicious southern style breakfasts and lunches. Biscuits are delicious. French fries are to die for!

Went for brunch on a Saturday and we sat outdoors since we had our dogs. We all ordered eggs/omelettes which were very good. Some of us are gluten free so we couldn't enjoy the biscuits or hush puppies but still had plenty to eat. They give you free dessert which we passed on cause we were full!

I bring out-of-towners here for the great breakfasts every week or two and feel compelled to alert them to the waitstaff's overalls. Of course, the waitstaff are generally extremely nice people, but I bet they only wear overalls here! I also have to warn them about the plate-sized pancakes. Perfect for pancake lovers like me (mmm, pecans), but having one... More

Unfortunately, this review could be excellent, but our waiter was lacking. It was the busy Saturday morning after the hurricane hit. We were seated and put in our drink order. I expected biscuits and hush puppies and they didn't come. Finally our meals came. And our biscuits and hush puppies never came (even after asking for them). Someone order a... More
