Countryside dinner with fried Chicken
Local Ingredients, Southern Staples

to Countryside Café

This is not just your typical country diner, though the atmosphere carries the same coziness, sweet smells and daily chalkboard specials (posted on Facebook). Having now been in business for 33 years, this isn't even just a fixture rooted in community, though it is that, too, sourcing ingredients from local farms whenever possible and welcoming diners on a first-name basis. No, Countryside is more - it's home to the No.5 rated banana pudding in the state. With all this in mind, it's no surprise the cafe is also a favorite among locals: it's been voted "Best of the Best" for nine years in a row.
