Lambert’s Cafe in Sikeston


Welcome to Southeast week!  I’m quite excited to highlight some of my favorite things about Southeast Missouri, and I hope you enjoy it.  First up is Lambert’s Cafe…home of “throwed” rolls, pass-around sides, and loosening your belt after your meal!  On what we thought was going to be a gloomy day, Ethan and my family rode down I-55 for a celebratory  lunch for my dad’s birthday.  There is fairly low light in the restaurant, but I couldn’t eat without documenting some of the tastiest entrees.  You’ll see we are all fans of the fried apples and crazy for fried okra!

Definitely a place to stop at if you are in the area!  Homey and southern, you won’t leave hungry.
