Review of Haywood 209 Cafe

Ranked #26 of 128 Restaurants in Waynesville
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$5 - US$15
Description: The Haywood 209 Cafe is a newly opened and renovated American traditional diner connected to Sam's Mart in the heart of the Ironduff community in Crabtree, Waynesville, N.C. Dining options include hearty breakfasts (all the staples) bacon and eggs, biscuits and gravy, pancakes, omelets, country ham, hashbrowns and homefries, etc. and home-style country dishes for lunch and dinner e.g. burgers, rib-eyes, country-fried steak, beef tips, chicken tips, reubens, chilidogs, and the like. Located in the same building that had been "The Haywood Cafe" for over thirty years previously under several names and owners, with a large and loyal customer base. Now back in action after almost ten years being closed down and vacant, much to the delight of the community, and still going strong since March of 2015

This restaurant had great food! The club sandwich was huge and the milkshakes were worth it! The service was attentive and we appreciated the break after a long drive.

Breakfast is great! We have eaten here for brekfast, lunch and dinner. Everything we have tried is tasty. For breakfast, try the regulars, eggs, meat and toast with hash browns. The burgers or philly cheessteak for lunch. Country fried steak for dinner..take home half...portions are good.

Four of us ate supper there one night while camping nearby. We all really enjoyed our meals!! Some got the plate with just the sides because there were too many good ones to choose from! My husband got that, and I got the meat loaf. We split the meatloaf and all sides, so we could taste them all. The mac and cheese was OK, like crock pot mac and cheese. The hash-brown casserole was really good, even better than Cracker Barrel's in our opinion (which can be a little dry some times). We got the meatloaf without gravy and enjoyed it. We all liked the cheesy biscuits that came with the meal. The potato salad, collard greens, pinto beans with cornbread...all good. We hate we did not discover this gem earlier in our camping trip!! Very reasonable and definitely good! I was really tempted to get the rainbow trout, the special for the night. Someone near us got that, and it looked really good, too.

Passing through on the interstate and we got hungry. Asked the GPS for places to eat and this popped up. We got there and it’s on the side of a convenience store/gas station. It was crowded so we decided to go in and give it a try. Sure glad we did, all the food was fresh and delicious. I had the meatloaf, broccoli casserole and hash brown casserole. It was scrumptious. Other party had the fried chicken livers and loved them. We will definitely go back again when over that way. It’s nice to find a little local place. Not many of them around anymore sadly.

I loved the 209! Nice people and I got one of the local dishes with "fried okra" which I hadn't tried before!
Being from Denmark, I probably won't pass by again, but if I do, I'll definitely stop by!
