Hours: Breakfast & Lunch (daily), & Dinner (Fri.)
At Dixie Supply, owners Allen and Kris Holmes serve big, filling, no-frills breakfasts and lunches with plenty of down-home Southern flair. Muffins, cookies, and croissants fill the glass cases up front, and they’re all baked fresh from scratch. For just $2.50 you can get a bowl of grits so dense and creamy they make a satisfying breakfast all by themselves, but that would mean passing up on soft, fluffy biscuits with ham or sausage and the delectable French toast made from slices of croissant dipped in a vanilla-tinged batter. At lunch, fried chicken, tomato pie, and daily blue plate specials offer Southern treats every bit as hearty as the breakfast fare. Dixie Supply doesn’t put on any airs, but with food this good, it hardly needs to. Look for the bright blue awning on the modest storefront on State Street. —Robert Moss Dish (Winter 2015)
