If you're looking to sit around waiting for your food, this is the place to go. It's 10:00 on a Monday morning and we are one of three tables seated. The young, terribly inexperienced waiter had to be asked twice for absolutely everything - coffee,...More

We came in just before closing and started with the coffee cakes - OK, nothing great. French toast and eggs with biscuits were top notch. Monte Cristo was good but a bit too cheesy.

The service was very friendly but slow. People who were obviously locals and regulars were served much faster than we were. We ate outside on their small patio space. Coffee was weak but the food was good.

Wonderful place on Ellewood. Wonderful menu and the grits and red eye gravy are to die for. Staff is very friendly.

The staff was friendly, the environment was adorable, and the food was so yummy! A perfect little breakfast place to go solo or with friends. The scrambled eggs and sausage were good, but everyone around me loved what they had too!

This was the first time we didn't have to wait in line for a table. Maybe because 9:30 am on a Sunday is too early the college students? Whatever the reason, it was nice to be able to sit outside. Server was super personable and...More
