I,found this place one day while driving. The Whistle Stop Cafe, It looked kinda neet from the outside, so I turned around to give it a try. (The best move I've made in a long time). Upon going inside, I was greeted very nicely, and they really make you fill at home,there whole staff was very plesant and friendy, kind of nice to see people working and having fun with the custormers. This place really has a following, as I, sat while waiting for my food ,which did not take long, I notisted that the staff new a lot of people by name as well as a lot of the customers new each other. After biting into the Softshell sandwich that I, havent had sence I, was at my uncle's house, down on the bay last summer. It was, Exceptional to say the least. I, really enjoyed myself so much and the food was so good, I deceided to invite my aunt and uncle, of course my wife and son as well, for lunch the following weekend. This was a brave thing to do as you would have to know my aunt when it comes to food, Of course she had to have the seafood platter, uncle Roy tried the Bar-B-Que plate, Bob my son had a Whistle Stop Burger, which they asked how he would like it cooked!! my wife had a Smoked chicken salad stuffed tomato, she said was to die for and I, went for the Softshell Platter and a cup of Gumbo this time.This is a MUST TRY, You won't be sorry, You'll be glad you did !!

I was recently in Mobile for the revival with some friends. We found this cafe online and decided to try it. All I can say is WOW. This quaint little cafe in the downtown area (make sure you get a map) is a little of the beaten path but not that hard to find. The food there is excellant and the service Great. We were served by Becky and she was the sweetest young lady and very helpful and patient. They don't have a lot of lunch items to choose from but what they have is wonderful. I had the ham & blue cheese croisant and tomato bisque soup, mmmm. The blue cheese was smooth and not overpowering. One friend had the frittata with conecca sausage, the other one had the chicken rollup and tomato bisque soup. And of course for dessert we just had to try the cakeballs I had the lemon one, one of my friends had the cakeball sunday thing with whipped cream and chocolate. We also had coffee, tea & caramel latte. This place is a treasure and any time I'm in the area will definately visit again. So glad we tried it. I would definately recommend this place to anyone.
