Stopped by for lunch while walking around Jefferson this past weekend. Order the Swamp Fries - fresh cut fries covered with brisket, cheese, onions & jalapenos. Pretty damn good. The place was quite busy for a Saturday afternoon and a lot of people eating BBQ.

When I was 8 I invented what I called a "Kornbread Sandwich". Many years later my Mom and I opened up a pie shop and restaurant and we slowly introduced my creation after tweaking the recipe for our cornbread. It's become an addictive addition to our historic small town and we love to see the faces of our guests eating it for the first time. Come on in and try it. It's not your Mama's cornbread!
Let me say I have never had a cornbread sandwich before but I will definitely stop here again.
I had the Pastrami & Provolone cheese sandwich which topped with mayo, onion and tomato served between two slices of jalapeño cornbread. The cornbread had great texture and flavor. The sandwich served warm was evenly heated with chips on the side.
Service was fast and the wait staff friendly.

Located in a 1890's home. White tablecloths and silverplate flatware. Menu changes seasonally with daily specials. Chef owned, since 1984. Casual attire. Men asked to remove their hats before being seated.Fresh seafood, rack of lamb, venison and veal dishes occasionally. Please see out Facebook page for nightly specials.
Easy going casual southern atmosphere with French-inspired cuisine.... at reasonable prices. A real find. Great for a romantic/special occasion or just a top-notch weekday meal. Fancy dress not required.
Extensive wine list if that’s your thing.
I had the escargot with puff pastry as an appetizer and the shrimp and lump crab with risotto as an entree. Both were sizzling hot and as good or better than you’ll anywhere.
The restaurant is in a historic home with wood floors and high ceilings.

After a weekend spent in Jefferson eating some pretty mediocre food, I was pleasantly surprised by this place. The staff was friendly and helpful, the atmosphere was fantastic, and the food was delicious and incredibly well priced. Four of us ate breakfast here and everyone got something different, from bacon and eggs to biscuits and gravy to pancakes, and we were all happy with our meals. Definitely the best breakfast spot in town.

The facility was newer and clean. The service was average. We had chicken strips and they were obviously prepared when we ordered them. They were hot, fresh and good. The iced tea was very good and seemed freshly made. It was a typical Dairy Queen but overall we left very satisfied.

In Texas, quantity often gets higher priority than quality. But the Austin Street Bistro knocked my socks off with its quality ! Homemade, original recipes using the freshest local ingredients. Every bite was a treasure. On top of that, the atmosphere was peaceful and romantic, and the service was friendly. Great find, and by far the best meal I had in Jefferson.

Looks like a dive, and I guess it is: but a lovable, quirky one with decent food, great beer, and kind friendly service.

Had a great dinner here ! Reviewed on TA and made the decision to stop in for dinner. Within walking distance of our B&B. Great choice! No live band as advertised but the service was great and the food delicious. Highly recommend.

We ended up in Jefferson while camping at Caddo Lake State Park. The cafe has a good breakfast menu with lots of choices but we went simple with the senior breakfast. Great deal. Real eggs with nice whole wheat bread and bacon. Coffee was hot n fresh. Service was fast and pleasant.
