Nicely appointed casual restaurant (beautiful tables) with an incredibly personable server, food was a nice surprise. The steak sandwich was full of flavor and had a nice balance of meat to peppers and cheese. The Chili was full of local meat, nicely done but had to be reheated, It was listed as mild and that it was perhaps offer some hot sauce or diced jalapeno's to spice it up per request. The server really took the time to help the customers who were there and keep busy in between orders.

Good home cooked food. Small store that has a meat counter with reasonable prices. A little out of the way, but well worth the trip.

We have stopped there for lunch several times-they have made us an incredible grilled cheese sandwich with tomatoes and onions-makes me hungry just to talk about it! They also have a beautiful rest room and all sorts of local foods and plants in the summer for sale.

The White Elephant is a variety store, gas station and restaurant, all under one roof. They do a nice job with traditional breakfast items...nothing fancy, just good cooking. Their portion sizes are generous and the prices are very reasonable. Try a HALF portion of sausage gravy and biscuit with a side order of scrambled eggs. Delicious.
They also serve lunch and dinner, and again, nothing fancy, just good regular food.
