Coffee and hash browns have always gone together, like rock 'n' roll, yin and yang, and bald-eagle hatchlings and William Howard Taft's toupee. Introduce your mouth to a dazzling duet with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of Southern fare at Dove Creek Café in Roanoke.
Dove Creek Café cooks up home-style breakfasts all day, along with hearty eats and daily specials with Southern flair. Early birds can ignore the worm and catch a couple of house-made biscuits smothered in luscious, cream gravy ($3.99) or fill up on Texas hash, a hearty blend of eggs scrambled with golden hash browns, bell peppers, tomatoes, onions, cheese, and a choice of savory breakfast meats ($6.99). On an undercover mission to stuff empty stomachs, two select cuts flee from the kitchen disguised in made-from-scratch batter, deep-fried, cloaked in country cream gravy, and adopting the code name of chicken-fried steak ($6.95). Fried catfish nuggets ($6.50) appeal to seafarers and retired feline anglers, while Mom’s country meatloaf ($7.50) paired with a slice of homemade pie ($3.50) silences plaintive homesick taste buds. In keeping with its down-home feel, Dove Creek Café treats visiting ears to the sweet strains of live Gospel music on Friday nights.
Dove Creek Cafe
They do things the old-fashioned way at Dove Creek Cafe, where chefs churn out omelets, bacon, sausage, and specialty housemade biscuits. Called “ginormous,” “perfectly browned,” and “the crowning glory to the plate” by Courtney Dabney of Fort Worth, Texas magazine, the soft, moist biscuits accompany most breakfast plates. Patty melts, chili cheeseburgers, and blackened catfish round out the café’s offerings, which also include chicken-fried steak cooked in zero-trans-fat oil.
