I can't speak for lunch food but the breakfast was soooo on point. The hubby and I shared two meals. I got the salmon and scrambled eggs and he got these egg biscuits and they were both delicious. Definitely recommend. For the few who drink cappuccinos, they serve them in what look like soup bowls so they're huge which I... More

Now this was truly a hidden gem for me. I was meeting my sorority sisters here for our december meeting and hangout time together and i never heard of this place. Well anyway, as we all were sitting down, our server was getting our drinks and i ordered a hot chocolate. When i received it, everyone at the table was... More

We have driven by this place for years without trying it, but yesterday we were both off on a weekday afternoon (very unusual) and we stopped in to check it out. They are apparently open 7:00am to 3:00pm, which explains why we had never tried it before. We are never in the area when they are open. What kind of... More

Had breakfast with my 3-year old granddaughter yesterday. A Saturday morning, about 8am, not too crowded. We were seated smoothly, and had our order placed pretty quickly. Our wait for the food was not long, so why were her pancakes and my fried eggs less at an unacceptably temperature. Preferably breakfast should be served steaming hot, and definitely not cool...

Menu features an interesting twist to breakfast basics: red velvet pancakes, banana bread pancakes and chicken n waffles. There was also an interesting burger twist : hopping burger with jalapeño. The food was not finger lickin good. My husband had the Hoppin Burger. It was tasteless. It was topped with cheese, which was not mentioned on the menu (he hates... More

I eat here regularly. There's a very good menu, the servers are friendly, and I never have to wait to get in. It's not too noisy, so it's a great place to have conversation. The breakfast scrambles are very good, and they even have gluten free pancakes! As a northern transplant to Atlanta, I can even say that I love... More

This is your basic breakfast/brunch/lunch place that has all of your favoirite meals and plates. I have been here several times and the food always tastes good and the same. It is very consistent with hearty portions. The last time I had a meat omelette with a side of fruit with a nice fluffy biscuit. The biscuits and gravy tastes... More

We were here for breakfast as this place serves breakfast all day. Very homey atmosphere and very American. Simple tables and big portions. Good and warm service with southern touch. Nice place.
