I haven’t been here in a couple years and will come back. We enjoyed the food and the biscuits. I had a salad which was tasty just that the potato toters were over cooked. My wife a vegan fruit salad that she enjoyed. Son-in-law Pot...More

I will preface this by saying: I am not a complainer. This was literally the WORST dining experience of my life. I had very high hopes for this place because they are edgy and health conscience, but, nothing can cover the fact that the managers,...More

Visited on a late Saturday morning while staying with family. A party of 5 (3 adults, 2 children), we were seated within 10 minutes at a spacious table. The menu has tons of breakfast options, covering various diets. I had the biscuits & gravy with...More

I didn't physically eat at the cafe, but I had UberEATS deliver! It was so delicious! The oatmeal pancake with peach compote was to die for! The grits were definitely creamy and dreamy! The Biscuit was light and fluffy! The homemade apple butter was perfect!

Went thinking that the biscuit would be "all that". Should have known when biscuits were going back uneaten that it wasn't their best. Don't order the French toast- whole or half order- it just isn't! Local crowd likes it. Wife's eggs spectacular with bean patty...More

I just happened upon this place in a very busy shopping center. It is almost hidden away! The menu advertises southern, but the food is not quite. The sausage gravy is made with chicken sausage instead of pork but still very tasty. The biscuits are...More

Visited on a whim and had a wonderful experience! I had the biscuit, egg and gravy breakfast and I didn't know what to expect with the chicken gravy. What I found was flavor packed goodness! Best grits I've ever had, I didn't have to add...More

This place has an interesting menu for breakfast but it is just average at best - nothing special. Good biscuits fortunately for the name but the pancakes and omelettes were nothing special. However, the service was excellent. Food needs to live up to the service.

I don't think they do. Everything is turkey or chicken. They do have a flat iron steak.
