5 out of 5 stars
Finding a new breakfast place gets me all atwitter like nothing else can. The discovery of Dixie Picnic (@DixiePicnic) was like striking gold! Not only do they have breakfast, they have Upcakes! And I am proud to discover a place in my hometown that my mother didn’t already know about.
My son enjoyed the atmosphere, as you can see in the pics below – booths made up of wicker love seats and old family photos on the wall gave it a homey feel. At the counter the shop had homemade jellies for purchase.
Often how I’ll judge a breakfast place is by the benedict, although I have been disappointed so many times that I don’t usually order it. When I asked the man behind the counter what he recommends, he suggested the benedict which comes with homemade sauce. I ordered it and it was fantastic! The ham slices had a great savory tangy flavor which included fresh rosemary. I was delighted to find that my orange juice was freshly squeezed right when I ordered it.
Mom ordered the ham biscuit which uses sliver-thin shavings of salty Smithfield country ham and is served with some honey mustard on the side. The biscuit was crumbly heaven.
It looks like Dixie Picnic has some neat lunch options as well, including a lunch box ($8.99) which includes a sandwich, your choice of side, a deviled egg and an Upcake. I’ll definitely be back!
