My husband and I had lunch here in downtown Branson. There was supposed to be a 20 min. wait but it was actually about 10 min. We had to go in and give our name to the cashier and stand outside to wait for a table which was a little miserable since it was in the 30s that day. It's... More

The food was ok. The food was true to its name "diner food" , extremely crowed, and the hospitality could use a lot of work. The chicken and dumplings were homemade! Although the portions were very small. I would highly recommend if you eat here come BEFORE peak times in the day. Not bad food just overall rating a solid... More

The is a cozy, busy place. You may have to wait outside 15 minutes for an open table; but it is well worth the wait. Each day there is a "special" posted on the front window. If you can eat the main meal, a homemade dessert awaits you.

Branson Cafe is known for it's breakfast so we were going to try it. Long waits to get in We were told it would be 20 minutes and to wait outside in the cold. The lady would stick her head out the door and call names ours was never called. So after almost an hour I went inside and asked... More

While the ladies went shopping my friend and I decided to go for a cup of coffee. The Branson Cafe seemed like a good place to go so we did. When we got there I saw their pie menu and noticed that it included raisin pie. It turned out to be as good as the raisin pie my mother made... More

We stopped in here for breakfast. It was good, down home cooking. They were pretty busy (we shouldn't have slept in), but it didn't take long to get a seat. There wasn't a super long wait before our food came. They had grits that my husband enjoys.

Right in the heart of old downtown Branson. Parking on the street. Had the cod with baked beans and cold slaw. Wife had the hamburger. All nice and hot. Portions just right for us. Staff cordial and the place is very clean. Good value. They do close at 7pm, so don't wait until to late to show . A couple... More
