There was a gap left when Chef and owner Angela Bradford, the owner of Appleby Sand Mercantile Cafe, closed its doors on May 7th, 2021. They were open for 20 years, and things were looking bleak for patrons of the buffet.

She always said that they would run the cafe until all of the kids graduated. That day came and went, and they stayed open another year after that.

Their closing turned out to just be a super extended summer vacation. Things are coming back to life on the buffet line.  It all started with a post on their Facebook page.

What's On The Menu?

Angela has been busy, they still had ASM meal prep service (if I'm not mistaken) while the buffet was closed. They would even occasionally have a fish fry with all the trimmings at the location this past summer.

Back in March they added fried yeast rolls to the buffet. This was well-received, and if you are missing them, hopefully, you can get some when they start up again.

Everything on the menu was crave-worthy. The chicken spaghetti and the chicken and dumplings had rave reviews.

How Do We Know 

If you are a fan of the restaurant, then you might already know all about this. If you live near the Nacogdoches area, this is the place to get some good home cooking.

I followed them on Facebook, and you can too. I would for sure give them a call or message them on Facebook if you want more details. This is all very fresh information, just like the cooking at ASM.

The cafe is located at
6530 FM 2609
Nacogdoches, Texas
