I have visit this place as often as I can. When we had a Japanese exchange student we took him there for a great experience in American food. Their homemade chips are heaven! Everything I have tried on the menu is delicious, the club, salads, chips, fries, burgers, sweat tea, and everything else! I have never heard a complaint from... More

Went in for lunch by myself and really enjoyed it. The staff was friendly and attentive. Got a French dip with apple salad that was marvelous!

Dropped in this spot for a quick tasty lunch! I was disappointed. I ordered hot open faced roast beef and had pasta salad and a mini cheesecake to go with it. All for under $10!

Terrible food the daily quiche was unedible. The tomato basil like out of a can They used square for payment and it took forever. Service was confused. Chairs and tables were uncomfortable and literally no parking nearby.

Betty, the personalty plus owner of Molly's told us the name of the cafe came from the well known song. I was part of a group of 6 friends. Several different menu items were chosen. Sandwiches, salads & soup. Everything was very tasty. Betty made it very easy for us by allowing us to pay separately.

Molly’s Café on Cherry Street is absolutely Macon! The environment is absolute Southern Hospitality.  The staff from Kitchen to Dining Room to Host are all warm, genuine, friendly, and helpful. The owner, someone you may run into at the Host stand, has been operating Molly’s for nearly 10 years.  She is wonderful, and that only overflows into her staff and... More

This cafe is not far from the Tubman museum. The quality of the food is excellent and the staff are very friendly. It gets very busy during lunch house so avoid that if you can.

This cafe is located very near the visitors center and was recommended by them. Great little place for soup and sandwiches. Funky decor. We would definitely come back here if we are ever in Macon again.

I'm a middle Georgia native who ate at Molly's for the first time in January 2016. I can't believe it took me this long to get there! The restaurant is decorated in a Southern vintage chic vibe. My only complaint with the decor was that it was a little dark in the restaurant. I got the Southwestern Burger and pasta... More
