Ate breakfast many times at this quaint, small restaurant. Excellent menu choices. Always a wait because it is popular and close to University of Alabama. Friendly staff. A little pricey but worth it. Parking is limited and need to park in the back.

Hearty breakfast in a small, quaint house. Be there at opening or you'll have to wait. Great coffee and tasty biscuits to perk you up. Visitors, college students, locals, and football players alike frequent this historic restaurant.
