Food Friday: Branson Cafe

Branson CafeThe Branson Café has been around since 1910 so they’ve had a lot of time to get it right. And the fact that they’re still going strong means they’ve definitely got something right.

Previous to having dinner there, I had heard a lot about the small restaurant which is wedged snugly between dozens of other small businesses on Main street. Both locals and visitors seemed to enjoy it, so I decided to give it a try.

The atmosphere is quaint and unassuming and the café definitely has an old-timey feel that made me feel very comfortable. I sat in a booth facing the front windows and had a nice view of the hustle and bustle of Main Street.

My waitress was very friendly and gave me adequate time to look over the menu which was a large selection of your classic home style fare. One thing I really loved about the menu was that it offered breakfast all day long. A restaurant that serves breakfast long after 11 a.m. is my kind of place!

A long-time lover of breakfast for dinner, I ordered scrambled eggs, sausage patties, hash browns and a biscuit. While I was waiting for my food to come out I spotted the biggest cinnamon roll I’ve ever seen in my life. It was perched alongside the other bakery items in a glass case at the front cash register — and it was calling my name. I vowed to pick one up on my way out.

Branson CafeMy food arrived shortly after and there wasn’t a thing on my plate that I didn’t enjoy. The scrambled eggs were cooked to perfection, the hash browns were just the right amount of crunchy and soft, my sausage patties were full of flavor and not overcooked and the biscuit was perfectly fluffy and moist.

I really enjoyed my breakfast for dinner at the Branson Café and even though business was picking up right as I began eating, the atmosphere is one that encourages you to sit back and enjoy your meal at your own pace.

I would highly recommend this place for an early morning breakfast, a casual lunch and of course, a breakfast for dinner spot.

The Branson Café can be found at 120 W. Main St., Branson, right next door to Mr. B’s Ice Cream Parlor on the corner.

It’s open Monday-Saturday from 6 a.m.-7 p.m. and closed Sunday.

Sadly, I was rushing to get to a show on time and never got my monster cinnamon roll but it’s obviously high on my priority list and I’m going back to get that sucker. And kudos to anyone else who attempts to eat the entirety of one of those things.
