It was good. I had the apple crepes. Yummy. Husband had pigs in a blanket--basically sausage links in pancakes. He inhaled so must have been good. Daughter got plain pancakes and bacon. The coffee was good too

The food is average. Service is good and prices are decent. Five Points used to be a great place to visit, but the area is changing and not so desirable now.

Great pancakes with peaches, perfect bacon with scrambled eggs. I sat down and was served a fresh cup of coffee right away. Although, it was early morning and the place was busy, my friends and I were not rushed. Our coffee was refreshed, while we...More

We found this place online, We then asked the valet at our hotel and he said it was great. It was great. It is very close to UAB.
