Peaches ‘n’ Such
Review by: Michael Stern
Peaches ‘n’ Such is a roadside stand and casual-cafe destination for breakfast, lunch, ice cream, and grand layer cakes as well as an especially hearty Sunday after-church supper.
On Sunday, fried chicken is a must-eat. Preferably with fried green tomatoes and creamy mac ‘n’ cheese. Another great occasional Sunday choice is turkey. This is the real thing, carved from a freshly roasted bird, offered with classic sage dressing and gravy.
Burgers are exemplary, especially when ordered all the way (lettuce, tomato, pickles, onions, mustard, mayo). Topped with good house-made pimento cheese and bacon, one of these fully-dressed half-pound jumbos is almost impossible to neatly hoist from plate to mouth.
Dessert layer cakes are monumental: red velvet, strawberry (made with fresh berries), triple-layer Neapolitan cake (yes, three flavored/colored layers), banana pudding cake, sweet banana pineapple cake offset by great ribbons of barely sweet cream cheese frosting. For any of these cakes, a serving of house made-peach ice cream is always the right companion; and alongside warm peach upside-down cake, it’s divine.
Peaches ‘n’ Such is tiny. Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, its five or six indoor tables often were shared by strangers when necessary. In response to pandemic panic, in Spring, 2020, a new broad front porch added seating that provides plenty of space for social-distanced dining.
