Drewry Farm & Orchards
267 Vaughns Cir, Dover
Seeking a breakfast oasis that’s sweeter than a ripe Arkansas peach? Head north of Russellville and visit Drewry Farm & Orchards on a Saturday.
It’s evident that the sweetness of the fruits grown there has seeped into the folks running the farm. The family is so kind and welcoming; they remember their many regular customers! They’ve been in business for 40 years, and their care for the customers and attention to detail reflects that. I can’t think of another breakfast spot where you’ll hear, “Good morning, Joe; you want the Joe Special today?”
Getting to the food: their loaded breakfast bowl is a best seller for a reason: it’s savory and piled with classic favorites. Imagine two scratch biscuits smothered in white gravy and covered in scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, and cheese. It’s been weeks, and I’m still dreaming about this bowl.
The loaded pancake is another must-order when you visit. The pancake is delicious, but the toppings make this dish feel like a party on a plate. Fresh peaches, strawberries, blueberries, and bananas, all topped with a drizzle of chocolate and caramel sauce.
I could go on and on about the peach smoothie, the hazelnut iced coffee, the peach pecan bread pudding, but truthfully, you need to experience them yourself. Take my word for it; the huge Drewry porch is the place to be on a cool Saturday morning. But, heed my advice, get there early, or you’ll be in a long line of folks waiting for theirs, too.
