Cotton Patch Cafe started in Nacogdoches, TX in 1989 with the idea of creating a family restaurant, where the food is always made from scratch, with only the freshest ingredients. 27 years later we have expanded to 47 restaurants (and growing), and we’re still taking the time to do things right. At Cotton Patch Cafe we hand roll the dumplings every day for our chicken and dumplings. We still hand bread our famous chicken fried steak to order. We are known for our traditional southern favorites, but over the years our menu has really expanded…which now includes a heart healthy menu section, premium salads, and delicious grilled seafood and steaks. But no matter how large we grow, some things will never change. Cotton Patch Café continues to make wholesome foods, fresh from scratch, and that will always be what we do.
