My daughter and I enjoyed our food. My husband who is very picky I had a different opinion. He was not impressed with his bacon, eggs, grits and biscuits. He did not like creamy grits or pecan butter. He sent the grits back and got a cup of fruit. We will leave him at home next time.

Open more than 20 years. Food is a little too Southern for my tastes, too much salt, oil, and sugar. The biscuits are heavy. That said, the food is tasty and filling. Good people watching.

The food was really good. I had scrambled eggs, chicken sausage, grits, and chicken sausage gravy/biscuit. The best watermelon/pineapple mimosa ever and orange spice tea. Hubby had a salmon scramble eggs w/grits, and a Blue Moonade...a Bluemoon beer and lemonade, refreshing! The place is quaint, tiny, small, tight, little and closet like, but the food is great!

The place was packed! The wait was 45 minutes but across the street was a market to browse through. After the wait, we were seated, waited on and served in a timely manner. The good was awesome and worth the money. The prices were superb!

We were traveling on New Years Day. We stopped here and were not disappointed! All four of us had something different and every meal was delicious! Best Southern food and sweet tea. Excellent service!

We visited this very unique, eclectic cafe and enjoyed our breakfast very, very much. The staff and surroundings give it a really cool vibe and neighborhood feel. We loved the biscuits and the grits are truly dreamy. The lunch menu looks intriguing and we hope to be back to give it a try.

This charming place has the best food in town. The breakfast is something you will crave long after your done. Customer service is excellent and the servers are so kind and go above and beyond. Take a stroll around the neighborhood after. Chandler Park is a lovely place to spend an afternoon.

We stopped in for breakfast when we were in town and it was great! The biscuits are delicious and both of our entrees were great. The coffee (I ordered the sledgehammer!!) was spot on too. Worth a visit for sure!

Cute, funky restaurant. Great service and breakfast all day. Absolute best grits ever. Live up to the name- creamy dreamy grits. Mimosa was large and very good and coffee was excellent. Had the Southern Benedict. Good but I will try something different next time.

Thank Sggypsy
