What a gorgeous and tasty little place we found for lunch near Wildwood. Quaint and Southern, The Cotillion Cafe is full of antiques, including linens and china the owner collected over the years. Her story is in the cookbook found on each tastefully decorated table. She -- and the menu -- is Southern through and through. The Whistle Stop sandwich is a twist on the BLT; it comes with fresh fried green tomatoes on a croissant. Hubs had the meatloaf. Both were exquisite. We didn't have to wait, but apparently you usually do. They take reservations.
Went today for lunch with my cousin. Reservation was for 115 didn’t get in until 130.
No staff to wait on tables. Service was very slow.
We both had chicken salad croissant with salad as we were going to get hot meals but saw that it would have taken an hour to get food. As it was it took about 25 minutes to get our food. Salad on croissant was good and fresh. Green salad was good. We didn’t get dessert because we were full. First time there don’t know if we will go back. Need more help! Parking is bad also beware!
Amazing food and great southern hospitality. The train wreck is a perfect balance of cheese grits, pork, beans, more cheese with not too sweet and perfectly tangy bbq sauce. This is the first time here for dinner having enjoyed the sweet shop a few times. Wonderful is not enough. This place is GOOD! The vinaigrette dressing is phenomenal. Thank you to a wonderful staff for a fabulous fine southern dining experience.
Omg my sister ran upon this little gem and the cakes are so good! Fresh made and the slices are HUGE. That cakes are moist. So far I've tried the coconut, the vanilla and the carrot. The carrot was my least favorite but it was still good. Cakes aren't too sweet; the icing can be a bit sweet so I'm going to see if they do whipped cream topping the next time I go. I also want to try the restaurant.
Yummy peach tea served in a large mason jar with a wedge of lemon and fresh mint spring. Tasty sweet cornbread with honey butter served before main course. My dinner was the chopped steak smothered with sauteed peppers, onions, and mushrooms. The smashed potatoes were perfectly seasoned. Dinner companions enjoyed the meatloaf, huge Texas chicken fried steak, and collard greens. This is a comfortable, casual, but small establishment, so advanced reservations would be a good idea in my opinion. When in town I would like to dine here again.
The Best dessert
Thank you for helping me deliver these awesome delicious desserts
They all love it, thank you again❤️
Loved our visit yesterday! Tried to make reservations but no answer. Went at 2:00 on Saturday and were seated pretty quickly. Ordered wine and water. Took about 10 minutes to be able to place order. My husband ordered meatloaf, collard greens, and mashed potatoes. I ordered Texas fried chicken with cheese grits and corn bread. It took awhile, but it was absolutely delicious! The chicken fillet was fried beautifully atop yummy cheese grits with a hot white gravy on the side as I had ordered. It came with a sprig of rosemary that added incredible flavor to each bite! Corn bread was crumbly with pieces of corn and delicious creamy butter that seemed homemade. Water arrived in mason jars with lemon. Mine was a beautiful aqua colored glass. Silverware was eclectic antique. All food arrived on different china plates. Ambiance was quite antique with lace and embroidered tablecloths protected by a plastic cover.. While there, I received a return call from when I tried to make a reservation. We had an incredible huge slice of coconut cake with cream icing that we took to go. Food was outstanding and though service was slow, we loved it and will definitely be back! Quite a lovely southern cooking experience!!
