The Dayton Coffee Shop is the quintessential small-town gathering place when the locals want a meat-and-veggies lunch washed down by a bottomless glass of sweet tea.

Monday through Friday, the restaurant offers six meats and at least 15 vegetables daily. You get your choice of a meat and two sides for $6.50.

Each day also has a designated special: stuffed peppers on Monday, meatloaf on Tuesday, lasagna on Wednesday, chicken and dumplings on Thursday and catfish on Friday.

The Sunday buffet offers nine meats and 16 vegetables, including a divine sweet potato casserole that could double as dessert. The meat-and-two price rises by just a quarter, to $6.75, on Sunday.

Meals are served with a choice of hearty yeast rolls or sizable slabs of cornbread.

There are also several sandwich and burger selections, as well as an expansive breakfast menu, including pancakes, omelets and biscuits, offered weekdays only.

Dessert choices on the day of our visit included four kinds of pie, egg custard among them, as well as cobblers, chocolate cake and bread pudding.
