The food is great! Employees are friendly. Most of the time the service is very prompt. Chicken salad is really good for restaurant chicken salad! Why not a 5? The coke is always watered down and tastes like RC. And sometimes you have to wait to check out! But it's one of our fav places for lunch!

A Taste of Home is a little more upscale than some of the other restaurants in downtown Wylie. The restaurant is in an old home that appears to have the original hardwood floors (with accompanying creaks), and the decor is tastefully understated. They offer an excellent breakfast menu with good service and little or no waiting.

It's a tea room really - or was last time I was in. Had lunch and it was excellent as was the service. But, visiting a friend, so did not eat out much.

Have been there several times. I like their breakfast but prefer their dinner. Chicken Fried Steak and/or Chicken are both good.

Celebrated my mom's 94th birthday and they put us is a separate room, which was great since we had a couple of young kids. The service was outstanding and the food very good. Instead of handing us a menu for desert, she, with drama, described each one. I had been here before with a friend for breakfast and again not... More

Just tried this restaurant this morning. The atmosphere is pretty cute. It is in a converted older cottage in downtown Wylie. However, it is a bit rundown and could use at the very least a fresh coat of paint. Our server was Fantastic! The coffee and the orange juice were very good. I had the deluxe breakfast plate with 2... More

Good food in a lovely setting of antiques. Good menu selections. Chicken tenders were tender and moist and light, tasty breading. Enjoyed the sweet potato fries. Will return to check other menu selections, including good looking desserts. Staff friendly and helpful. Tammy pushed our wheelchair up the long ramp for us.

I have only eaten breakfast here, but I would highly recommend it. The food is great and they have lots of options. The interior is also really well done. This is a great place to come and relax or for a fun date.
