    Café Josephine

    The menu at Cafe Josephine is just as eclectic as the multitude of antique shops and local art studios surrounding it. Best described as, rustic cuisine, Chef Troy creates dishes with a unique flair while still staying true to the local culture. His menu is teeming with comfort foods like shrimp and grits, wild game like duck tamales, and tacos spiked with a drizzle of Sriracha and pecan pepper jelly. Here's a tip from the locals; don't go hog-wild on their famous cheddar biscuits. It's all too tempting but save room. It'll be worth it!

    Cafe Josephine, a hidden gem but not for long
