“Only breakfast delivery in Gainesville”

Coffee Shop at Lawrence Pharmacy
Restaurant details
Reviewed 24 May 2017

This is the only place I know of in Gainesville that delivers breakfast.

Not the hugest fan of the cathead biscuits, but their english muffin sandwiches and omelets make you want to forget McDonalds. I haven't tried a whole lot of the lunch menu, but what I have tried was ok.

P.S. The home made fries are the bomb.

but here, chili dogs are known for the coffeeshop at lawrence pharmacy. they are that good. superior in fact to all others ninth area. premium quality smoked weenie with a meaty cup runneth over chili loaded with beans, sev real varieties and crunchy cold chopped onions served on top, on a place, eaten with a knife n fork. if you want to get truly decadent about it ask for some pickles. they are made, not store bought and served icy cold as God intended. delightful atmosphere here in small 8 table and high top stool fronted bar staying packed with regulars. easy to figure out why too.

the kind of place where somebody's mama or granny makes her own pimento cheese and puts a dab of it extra on every cold plate at no extra charge. where the chili doesn't come out of a can, and the pickles are cold. where one of the sides is a cool whip gelatin salad thats more like ice cream than any salad ever conceived. where the chili dogs come two ways, one a hand held model that doesn't get all over your shirt when you bite into from your hand, and the other that comes on a plate and requires a knife and fork to eat it is so messy you get it on your shirt any way. the burgers are good, small but good, and you can easily eat two if you are hungry. desserts are home made and range form cookies to cakes with icing that was hand stirred. its a part of america that i like. this place has all of that going on and more. its friendly to a fault, clean and there are smiles all around from happy customers and happy mamas and grannies. plus its fun, and guarantee you will not hear one single cuss word.

Just two blocks from Brenau University is Lawrence Pharmacy. Driving by this place you would never know that there is a cafe inside where long time residents visit for lunch. You can see movers and shakers in this cafe including the GA Governor when he is back home in Gainesville. Great ole time food like tomato soup and grill cheese sandwiches...juicy hot of the grill cheeseburgers, etc. Not much parking so go early when going to lunch.

yet they make an open faced chili dog served on a plate that has to be eaten with a fork that might be the best i have ever tasted. its nothing too pretentious. not by a long shot. it just simple chili made with beans onions and i presume chili-o mix with a lot of hamburger that is slow cooked for a right good while until comes together. the weenies are nothing fabulous. sure they are good quality but i don't believe they come form new york city if you catch my drift. the buns re local. by that i mean holism or sunbeam or some other right off the shelf manufacturer. there are no sesame seeds, no poppy seeds
, they are split on the side the way God intended them to be. the mustard is probably frenchs unless some other brand was on sale. i reckon the staff is what really makes this place so special. they look after their customers, keep the joint clean in between lunch hour rushes, and smile a lot. make you feel good about being there kind of attitude that washes over the entire place. chili dogs are not their only item. they are not even themes popular. they make a right fair burger, a delicious turkey club and this time of year especially make a bodacious b l t. grouper sandwich is more than any mere ammeter can handle so stay away from that unless you are real hungry. they make a devine cold plate of tuna salad, potato sale, slaw chips and pickles. h the pickles. they are icy cold here. kind of cold that will rattle your teeth yet still deliver that satisfying crunch ringing with vinegar snappy like. its fun to eat here. food is pretty good too.
