Eating while riding horseback was pioneered by the efficient Mongols, who also adjusted to reading, receiving haircuts, and filling out their taxes atop their four-legged mobiles. Enjoy the convenience of chairs and tables with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of home-style cuisine at Cope's Knotty Pine Cafe, located on Norris Road.
Cope's Knotty Pine Cafe serves home-style breakfast and lunch creations in a friendly dining atmosphere. The family treatment at the café results in every plate arriving tableside being accompanied by a smiling face, unlike many at-home family-meal treatments, which involve screams of terror over bread bags not secured by twist-ties. The menu features selections chock-full of personality, such as Doyle's Dynamic DBL Burger ($8.25), which has twice the burger-based dynamism as a standard bun and patty. The Fireman's Fearless Frito Boat ($5.25) sails through smoke and fire on a corn-chip ladder, while mouths dance with Roger's Raving Tuna Melt ($6.75) and easily find aquatic commonalities with Heather's Friendly Halibut Sandwich ($7.75). Main dishes are cheered on by sideline all-stars including cheese-stuffed jalapeños ($3.75), fried green beans ($3.75), and corn fritters ($3.75). Cope's Knotty Pine Cafe is open for eating from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. all seven of the eight days of the week.

Cope's Knotty Pine Cafe
Locals linger at the counters of Cope’s Knotty Pine Cafe, chatting over steaming cups of coffee. Antiques and knickknacks speckle the wheat-hued wooden walls above booths and tables. Behind the counter, servers bustle, warmed by a griddle, and balance plates of omelets, burgers, and fried seafood. The dishes are all forged from recipes that might have been passed down through generations or discovered in extremely rough drafts of the Constitution.
