Generous portions of freshly prepared food. The local sausage is A1. Great eggs, pancakes and bagels sandwiches. Order in line and then find a table. Sometimes a line to order, but worth the wait. Great coffee.

Fido had great food and some interesting options. We stopped here on our way home from a trip to Georgia. We ordered several options from across their menu and there drinks were delicious.

Fido always has an awesome menu-whether for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Lots of egg dishes, great salads, and sandwiches. Most recently I had the buffalo tofu sandwich special. I always find myself adding hot sauce to everything I eat, but this sandwich was perfectly spicy...More
