The peanut soup compared well to that served in Williamsburg, Va. Meatloaf was also quite good, and the prices were so reasonable. Restaurant has the right name! Good comfort food with simple decor.

My family and I love to eat at this restaurant, when visiting Edenton. The service is friendly, and the food reminds me of my grandma’s southern cooking. I love how they have lots of vegetable choices on the board each day and it feels like...More

Nothing Fancy Cafe has a great down-home menu and is extremely reasonable price-wise. In addition, the restuarant has a section with interesting antiques and knick-knacks and some truly well-done crafts for purchase.

Locals suggested we eat here. They said it had good down-home cooking. After having dinner there with a group of friends, I must disagree it was not good - it was GREAT down-home cooking. The decor is nothing fancy, so dress casually when you go...More
