“Literally my favorite restaurant of everywhere I've ever been in the entire world... everything is great. Bar side has a great scene that's relaxed and full of local color. Don't sit on the restaurant side, sit on the bar side. Non-smoking. Their Sunday buffet is the best in town.”

“What can we say about this place. WOW. It's just a block and a half from you!! Full of GREAT Coffee, Mimosas and a FULL menu on pick your own Bloody Mary's, this place is Ah-Maze-ing I will say, the food is great, but more of brunch portions. So if you are a big burly dude...order two of something. ”

Point of Interest
“CarGo is a ride share service just like Uber or Lyft, but locally owned. It's great! Just go on your smart phone's app store and download the CarGo app. They also do CarGo Carryout for food!”

“We absolutely LOVE this bar. One of the best in Cape Girardeau. Kathy, the owner, is always working and always on top of her game to make her guests happy. The scene inside is very eclectic, but the major fun is outside where there is covered patio seating, a stage for outdoor band, life size beer pong and MORE! Our favorite times to go are Friday's during Happy Hour from around 6pm-9pm - Live music and an older crowd. Saturday's - from about 8pm-11pm especially if there is live music!”
