French toast was a plate full w/ strawberries, blueberry compote, and lemon curd. This was the special of the day. Sweet potato hash unusual but, really good dish. Like the hot teas..served in a little pot. Nice place, same wait staff year after year. Also, be sure to get some jelly/jams from the farmer that sets up outside. They serve... More

No frills place to have a great breakfast. The pancakes were delicious and the bacon was OMG delicious. Best coffee ever. Great menu. Opens at 9am, get there 8:45 or earlier for the first seating. Otherwise there could be a long wait.

Went for a light lunch. Wanted soup and a side. Cold and blustery out and soup was what I was after. Staff was accomodating, nice and tried hard but the ROASTED RED PEPPER and tomato soup when it was served was CREAM BASED (ugh-I can't do dairy) and it had to go back. Darn, I was SO HUNGRY for fresh... More

A bit of a wait at this popular place. Great food although portions are very large. If you don't mind a wait this place is worth the visit. Parking garage very close.

We had a late breakfast here one morning. My wife ordered the grits along with a fruit plate and a biscuit. I ordered the French toast with strawberries. Both meals were excellent. We ordered a side of sausage patties that were well seasoned and out of this world. The service was excellent and the food was above and beyond.

I have now eaten here 2x, and it was awesome both times! I've had the shrimp and grits (yum!), and a veggie plate. I've also ordered the basket of sweet bread, DON'T MISS OUT!! The wait the first time was Sunday morning breakfast and an hour long, but a nice breakfast with my aunt and uncle I hadn't seen in... More

Good food, local and fresh, with a simple menu. The attraction of the food and location result in a very busy eatery; the main room is full of tables, chairs and people--and thus the noise. Pleasant wait staff but they have no time for chat, strictly orders taken and delivered.
