This restaurant has great food. One of us had breakfast food and the other had lunch. Everything was great, even down to the coffee. It's a small place with funky decorating, but so worth the try.

I heard Fava's has been locally owned and operated for over 100 years. They must be doing something right. Nothing too fancy but we weren't looking for overpriced fancy lunch, we wanted something low key. Fava's has a homey diner-type atmosphere, good food, great prices, friendly staff and pretty sure my pie was homemade. Catfish sliders were great, we fell... More

If you are in Georgetown, stop in Fava's. It's over 100 years old and has an authentic, small town diner feel. The food is good, local diner food. Breakfast is the best.

We've lived in the Georgetown area a good while. We have tried this twice, neither time came away happy with the service. All you can eat isn't all you can eat if they don't bring it! It was good food, not excellent by far. Take that, the price and bad service maybe the third time will be the charm though... More

So glad we decided to try this cafe out! My 1/4lb Swiss Cheeseburger was amazing. My hubby really liked his BLT, too. And the strawberry shake we shared was so delicious! We especially love going to family-owned cafes, so this place hit the spot with its fun 50's type theme as well. It was clearly popular with the locals, too.... More

Went in for lunch with another manager from our store while it was being built. Both of us had burgers. Very tasty fries were awsome. NICE place!

Stopped while passing through. This place is charming and the food is delicious. I had the reuben and fries. I loved it. The balance of flavor was wonderful with melt in your mouth beef and cheese and the tang of the sauerkraut and some delicious rye bread. It really was great. My only critique would be to toast the bread... More
