In downtown Cheney on Main Street lies a picturesque down home restaurant, the At Home Cafe. Although they only have 11 tables and few employees, this cafe offers an assortment of breakfast and lunch specials. Breakfast ranges from omelets, pancakes, French toast, a plethora of scrambled eggs and a traditional brunch buffet on Sunday mornings from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. They are most well known for the Sunday buffet that features eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, waffles, French toast, country style hash browns, biscuits and gravy, and fresh fruit. They even have homemade cinnamon rolls. For lunch, you can order burgers, deli sandwiches, hot and cold sandwiches, salads and soups. Don’t expect to get fries with your burger or sandwich, because the At Home Cafe doesn’t have a deep fryer. But don’t get discouraged. They do offer sides of various salads with your meal. The service is excellent, almost better than the food. Waitresses make small talk with the customers, and know the regulars by name and favorite dish. Owner Patty White has owned the quaint Cafe for two and a half years. It is basically family run and family orientated. There are pictures of family on the wall that give the place a very comfortable vibe. With the fast food chains just down the road, this cafe is a better alternative, as they are all for good cooking without the added crap, such as preservatives.
“We try to keep our food free of preservatives, and that makes it just that much better,” White says.
The At Home Cafe is open seven days a week from 6:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Stop in for a taste of good home cooking.
