Good Eats: Log Cabin Café – Dover (Big Rock), TN

On one of our errand days, Himself and I spotted this cute café. Since it was past lunch and both of our stomachs were growling like starving wolves, we decided to try our luck with a new (to us) place.

Inside, it looked alright. Not fancy but clean and cheerful.

Himself ordered an appetizer of fried mushrooms. That is when we realized we had hit the jackpot with our stop. The mushrooms were fresh made… not frozen. The batter was light and they were not overdone. And there were a LOT of them. The photo shows about half of what we received. (I told you we were hungry!)

I ordered steak tips with mushrooms and Monterey Jack cheese, salad and hash browns. There was easily enough to feed 2 people. The tips were perfectly cooked.

Himself ordered a stuffed chicken breast, salad and baked potato. His chicken was juicy and tender. Both orders came out piping hot.

We (greedily) ended our meal with a homemade dessert. Himself had some sort of molten brownie thing and I had coconut cake. Hmmm… next time I might skip the steak and order 2 cakes!

Don’t have an address for it but it is on Hwy 79 about 8 miles east of Dover (near Big Rock).


  1. Emm... I love surprise, roadside stands featuring wonderful homemade food. This place reminds me of "The Sugar Shack" - a little family owned restaurant near Killington Vermont. They made the most fluffy, beautiful pancakes you ever put in your mouth AND tapped their own trees for maple syrup. Heaven.

  2. Isn't that the most fun, finding a neat place you didn't know about? Food looks good. :)

  3. Isn't it great when you find a new restaurant that you actually like! It's such a treat.
