Yeast Rolls

“This place has a very unique menu, which I like. There are many different things to choose from with appetizers and entrées. We decided to try the yeast rolls with the different types of butters. They were heavenly. They were hot and soft. In fact I appreciate the temperature of all the food. It was all very hot and fresh. I also got the macaroni and cheese and the bass. Those items were okay. I feel they both couldn't been seasoned more. The sunflower seeds on the bass was interesting. My boyfriend got the crab cakes, grits, and rice. I can't recall the name of the rice right now, but it was a fried rice. It was delicious. Probably the best thing we ordered, besides the bread. The host and servers were really nice and attentive. I would go by to try different dishes.“

“4 words - Soul Food Egg RollsI have tried about 6 things on their menu and they are all really good. The atmosphere is above average. It's a great place to go and just relax. Inside and outside seating. Outside is my preference cause it's right downtown and there is plenty to keep your mind occupied.It might be the best place in downtown Macon.“

“This comment is about the salad which was amazing but it's more geared to the young lady that works there. You see, I had just came from Atlanta verifying the news that I have the last stage of stomach cancer and was given two years to live. As I was sitting at the table waiting on my plate well my boyfriend and I, the tears came a flowing and the customers that was there couldn't see me crying but when this young lady saw me she asked if everything was ok and I couldn't hold the tears and I bawled like a newborn baby and what she did I knew there was a god and that would be my gi yo restaurant forever. She gave me a hug and yes I'm a hugger and she told me what ever I'm going through I will be ok and I cried on her shoulder for a bit and after i felt better. We both smiled and I left and went home. Then has I opened my salad to eat and the first bite was explosive well I would have said heaven but I can only imagine that part and I love God but not trying to go there no time soon lol so this salad was just amazing. I just had to leave this review to say that day my soul got fed just as well as my belly. Thank you young lady, you know who you are.“

“What a gem! I googled restaurants in downtown Macon and Cox's had the best reviews. We drove through a decidedly industrial area and were beginning to wonder where GPS was taking us. The Cafe exterior is rustic, but don't be fooled. Good people, good service and great food await. I had 2 eggs, scrambled to perfection and toast with coffee (good and hot). Jack had 2 eggs over easy, hotlinks, grits and biscuit. He prounced his meal delicious. If you're in the area, give it a try!“

Orders were incorrect (I ordered a Goose burger plate with Onion Rings and got Fries instead. Rings were eventually received). Food was good, service a bit slack. I guess large parties (12) are not the norm. Feel ambivalent about returning.“

“The food is good. My favorite is the pork chops so far that I've tried. Green beans are amazing and I love the jiffy bread when it's available. My only complaint is I drive a good ways to see what he has because he doesn't post the menu on a regular. When I ask my sister is it posted via Facebook she usually says no and then will try to inbox for it. When u arrive some of the menu items are not ready. This has happened on more than one occasion. But they are super nice and friendly and I do recommend you go and try for yourself. They have breakfast that I hear is really good too.“
