Just a quick breakfast with friends. Hash browns & bacon were crispy and eggs were done right. Perfect start to the day!

Hotel doorman recommended, though he had not eaten at Fife's. Walked over mid afternoon hot day through a crumbling streetscape, looking forward to the traditional Southern menu. Not crowded, and after studying the daily specials on the wall, and not seeing the advertised chicken livers...More
