A little wait on weekends but the food is good. I don't recommend the crab benedict but the others are good as are the eggs and grits waffles and pancakes.

Just a small diner with southern charm. Good breakfast & friendly people. Most of us in there were older, since it was before 10 am. Nothing fancy but clean. Priced nice.
