Find us in Little Rock’s East Village for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dessert, plus Cathead’s catering and bakery counter. In a hurry? We also offer a grab-and-go hot plate station and hearty box lunches.

Get ready for a love letter to the South. Cathead’s Diner is all about the flavors, fixin’s, sweets and stories that get passed around a well-worn table. Nationally acclaimed chef Donnie Ferneau created a menu chock-full of smoked meats and other savory specialties, many of them served on our namesake, extra-big biscuits. The sides are just as special, and dessert steals the show thanks to renowned pastry chef Kelli Marks. You’ll find Cathead’s comfortably settled in the Paint Factory, a mixed-used development in Little Rock’s East Village.

Come hungry.
