Hickory Street Cafe--chicken salad and zucchini bread

Hickory Street Cafe is known locally for their luscious zucchini bread and made-from-scratch chicken salad topped with grapes and cashews or you can get it served as a sandwich. They have other sandwiches, salads and soups on the menu as well. There is also quiche. I enjoy the quiche and get it when I want to deviate from the chicken salad.  The restaurant is in a converted two-story house with a gift shop upstairs. They are only open for lunch on weekdays and do a very brisk business. The clientele is heavily female but you will also find some men sprinkled among the "ladies-who-lunch". The location is close to downtown and convenient for business lunches. There can be a wait for a table and their lot is small, so you will probably have to park on the street.  Service is efficient and friendly. Average cost is $8-$9 not including beverage.

Do not skip the zucchini bread! If it doesn't come with your meal order it.
