Westword's Description

Pressing right up against the sidewalk, the homey, family-run Cora Faye's Café has flowers in the window boxes and a sign promising the comforts of "home cook'n" and "soul food" -- code for "comfort food" long before the term was co-opted by restaurants serving up-from-frozen chicken-fried steaks and mashed potatoes out of a box. Here, comfort food has a definite Southern twist - oxtails, collard greens, frog's legs, cornbread and lush, pink red velvet cake - with many of the recipes for this good grub handed down through generations.

    I enjoyed every bite of the catfish at Cora Faye's Cafe. The sides were awesome, collar greens, cabbage and desert was on point, yams.

    Cora Fayes was wonderful .We all had the fried chicken and it was WONDERFUL ! We came in early on a Sunday to beat the crowd and we were so glad we did as people came through the door the whole time we were there. We will be back for the catfish and the other items on her menu . This place is a jewel !

    If you want some Southern cookin' on Southern time, this is a place to get some. Fried chicken tops my favorites, greens, etc etc. Don't forget dessert.

    Great traditional Southern fare. Check on the weekday specials. The fried chicken is an absolute must, and pony up an extra buck for the thighs. Dishes $5.99-$12.99. “More Info" for review:
