This is a very unique home cooking experience. Food has flavor just as home cooking would provide and the deserts are to die for.

I went in solo and sat myself. Immediately the waitress took my order and shortly thereafter brought a drink. There was plenty of seating at lunch and no wait. Menu was basic deli stuff, three selections of soup (one of which was gone by noon), and a great array of desserts. I ordered quiche and it was very good, as... More

Deserts are excellent. Strawberry salad is extra good. Just okay with all else. I visit them about once a month for their Straberry salad or Chocolate Chess pie.

Baker's Rack is a good local restaurant in downtown Jackson. They have home cooking and good desserts. The people that work there are always friendly. Try their chicken salad !

If I am downtown on business, I will occasionally stop by the Baker's Rack for lunch and dessert. The wait staff have always been friendly, the food is fresh, and the desserts are REALLY GOOD!

This locally owned restaurant offers a good choice for lunch downtown on a budget. They have items from egg salad sandwiches to a hot plate. Really good desserts are available . A whole casserole and pies and cakes can be taken home after lunch.

We have been here several times and have found the food always to be excellent. All their quiche are great - cheesy and delicious. Strawberry salad is to die for. But this place really rocks desserts - my favorite is the Chess Squares. They are ooey gooey good!!! I have NEVER gotten a bad dessert, though, and I've tried a... More
