Found a new place
At least, it is new to us. The waitress said it has been there for 18 years. They must be doing something right.
The Donut Shop and Cafe in Richland, MS. is on hwy 49 just south of Jackson. I couldn't eat the donuts due to health concerns, but they smelled wonderful. I did have a perfect over easy egg and excellent bacon. Sam had patty sausage that he said was very good.
The atmosphere is totally "Roadfood." Most people knew each other, but we were made to feel accepted as one of them.
