TASTY TOAST. The French toast at Peach Valley Cafe ($6.25) is worth every penny.



Opening in January, Peach Valley Cafe brings a whole new meaning to casual dining. It’s hours are abnormal with both lunch and breakfast served until 2:30 p.m. There is indoor and outdoor seating available at wooden tables or booths. The decor is sweet and simple, like an old diner, but fancier.

The service is excellent because the waiters give their customers just the right amount of attention; not too much to be a bother to them, but enough to assist when needed.

The breakfast menu is diverse, ranging from big hearty meals to sweet, smaller ones. The menu includes: eggs, benedicts, omelets,  breakfast sandwiches and wraps, as well as Valley Specials which include pancakes, waffles, bagels, french toast and biscuits. All Valley Specials include a side of bacon, ham, sausage or corned beef hash. Fresh fruits, nuts and chocolate chips may also be added to the pancakes and waffles.

From the breakfast menu, the french toast ($6.25) is to die for, with texas toast dipped in homemade batter sprinkled with cinnamon and powdered sugar and served with warm syrup.

The lunch menu also has multiple options. It is split into two sections, the first being fresh soups, salads and chili, and the second is sandwiches and burgers. There are four types of wraps to choose from: the curry chicken salad wrap ($8.95), teriyaki chicken wrap ($8.95), Santa fe chicken salad wrap ($9.25)and the veggie wrap ($8.50). The salads are delicious, with fresh vegetables and fruits and perfectly cooked meat.

The Favorites and Valley Classics include, blackened chicken pasta ($9.95), chicken pot pie ($8.75), shrimp and grits ($10.95) and the fresh catch of the day (market price). The chicken pot pie is full of flavor and just the right amount of spices. It tastes just like one’s mom would make it.

Side options include french fries, sweet potato fries, green beans, fruit, asparagus, onion rings and coleslaw. Parslied red potatoes and vine-ripe tomatoes are also offered with no extra cost.

For dessert one may choose from an array of options including, homemade peach cobbler ($3.25), Ghirardelli double dark chocolate brownie sundae ($3.95), Ghirardelli double dark chocolate brownie ($2.00) and a fresh baked gourmet cookie ($1.50). The most ordered is the brownie sundae.

Overall, Peach Valley Cafe is one the best breakfast or lunch places in the Conway area. With delicious food and reasonable pricing, one must try.
