Even though it’s called Nothing Fancy, this little restaurant shows diners that they don’t need white linen tablecloths and crystal dishware to dine well — sometimes home-cooked comfort food is all we need. Nothing Fancy Cafe and Market is somewhat of an eatery combined with a wonderland. The booths and clusters of tables are surrounded by antique finds like dolls, furniture and china pieces; artwork like trinkets, crafts and other handiwork from talented locals; and delicious homemade bakery treats. Take a browse through it all while you wait for your food. The varied menu offers salads, sandwiches and entrees so you can grab a light lunch or finish a long day with a hearty dinner. Take out is also available. And don’t forget to check out the long list on their specials board, which changes daily, for side dishes and specialty entrees and soups. The portions are generous and service is friendly, creating a homey atmosphere that locals find familiar and gives visitors a taste of Southern hospitality.
