“Last September my wife and I had lunch in your restaurant and it was excellent! A lady on the street advised us where to eat. Your waitress, Melissa, was a real find for us. Great personality, great service and a real credit to your establishment. Melissa could not have been better and we really appreciated it. We are back in Ohio now but remember Donna’s fondly.” –-K.D.
“Donna, My wife and I visit your restaurant every week. We just finished eating the Sunday morning buffet. It was so GOOOOOOD!” –Paul Chambers
“My buddy and I were riding around after a visit to the Sweetwater Flea Market on a recent Saturday, and stopped by the Donna’s for lunch. It was a nice surprise to find a non-fast food chain restaurant open on a Saturday afternoon in Madisonville, which is (for us) a bit off our beaten path. Cyndi was our waitress and she did a stand-up job, even though she was busy with several other chores. The buffet was great and the staff made us feel right at home. I will definitely remember Old Town Cafe on future trips through Madisonville.” –Randall Brown, Knoxville
“Thank you! Your Cafe has become a regular place for us to eat — and even bring friends. It’s the place we have shared our wedding anniversary for the last three years of our eight years together — and Donna’s always makes it special.” — Tim and Karen A.
“Thank you so much for your support of Civic Events in Monroe County. Your efforts are helping to keep Monroe County’s historic past alive, and the future of it positive and bright. Donna’s Old Town Cafe provides a pleasant atmosphere for many events from meetings to family dinners. Once again, thank you.” –J.S.
“I was very happy to visit your restaurant while in town. I found your hot food buffet quite tasty and the fresh bread was a nice surprise. Please keep up your unique service to the community. Thanks again!” –Brad C.
“If you need a neat date for Valentines day. Reserve the upstairs for Valentine’s Day dinner. Donna’s has a good peanut butter pie. Cute small downtown diner.” — Chad R.
“Great food, wonderful service. First time trying it and it was more than expected. Breakfast buffet was really good, homemade biscuits! The waitress even cooked us an egg to order since they only had scrambled on the buffet. Donna was a wonderful waitress and we’re excited to go back!!!!!” — Carla
“Yummy Small cute eatery. We enjoyed our meal. GET the peanut butter pie. They are known for it and we weren’t disappointed.” — Chad
“WONDERFUL FOOD! MUST TRY! The atmosphere in Donna’s Cafe is warm and inviting…with a VERY friendly and helpful staff, the overall experience is simply wonderful. From tender steaks and beef tips to homemade baked chips, fried green tomatoes, and peanut butter pie, Donna’s Cafe has it ALL! They have a menu with entrees such as grilled chicken, country fried steak, butterfly shrimp, and spaghetti dinners, to Reuben sandwiches, turkey clubs, and many more! They have daily lunch specials, as well as a daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner buffet! The restaurant is remarkably clean and features some of Monroe County’s historic places with brochures to ‘get you where you’re going!’ for out-of-towners and memorable photos of downtown from years ago! Really interesting place..great experience!” — “A Regular”
