Great place for breakfast. Ate here twice. Chicken with biscuits and gravy. Excellent. Staff was excellent and food delicious. They do not understand what a macchiato is. Delivered me what tasted like regular coffee in an espresso cup.

I had the opportunity to get some lunch (to go) from TJs. I had the shrimp and grits and the salad nicoise. Both were delicious, not very pricey and incredibly filling. I would go back for lunch in a heartbeat!
