Best Comfort Food

Southern hospitality marries scratch cooking at this eat-in or take-to-a-picnic casual breakfast and lunch favorite in Malvern. Tracey Deschaine and her staff make everyone feel like a regular while serving up generous helpings of dishes from Deschaine’s Virginia childhood. French toast a l’orange, southern sticky bun French toast, and the My Oh My! omelet top the list of breakfast bests. For lunch, get a box lunch (sandwich, side, deviled egg and upcake). The Thanksgiving sandwich, nutty chicken salad and Georgia BBQ smoked pork elicit raves and nostalgia. And upcakes, upside down cupcakes iced all over for maximum satisfaction. Well now, there’s a picnic in every bite.

“I have been in the industry for over 20 years and have never had such an incredible box lunch delivered!”
