Cook's Buffet, Cafe, Bakery in DeLand is steeped with family heritage and tradition. Early on, Bob developed a special buffet style serving hand carved aged beef, fresh turkey, lamb and ham. To accompany the meat choices were freshly prepared vegetables, salads and homemade desserts. Soon there were 14 Holiday House Restaurants throughout Central Florida. They probably never dreamed of how this simple restaurant in an old house, where the family called home, living upstairs during the 1960's would grow into a family tradition and a local chain of restaurants.
