Come early if you've got a hankering for the sweet Southern soul food this family-owned establishment dishes up. Located just over the hump from Capitol Hill, this is a not-to-be-missed, welcoming brunch or dinner spot. Whatever the crowded pair of dining rooms lacks in space and elegance is made up for in the quality (and quantity) of down-home cooking. Classics like buttermilk fried chicken, catfish, barbecue, vinegary collard greens, and macaroni and cheese (with onions and mushrooms) are prepared simply and served piping hot. Be sure to save room for the grand finale, too. Dessert is predictably heavenly: red velvet cake with buttercream frosting and strawberry shortcake are perfect finishing touches.
Best for Homestyle Because: Kingfish Cafe means sweet Southern soul food in a family-owned establishment that will keep you coming back for more.
