Had breakfast here and didn't eat until next day!! Lovely old house stuffed full with regulars. Almost don't need a menu...you want it, they fix it. Had a vegetable omelette with grits on side with tomato gravy and thought I'd gone to heaven. Forgot the...More

One of the oldest and best home cooking in Tuscaloosa. If you want a meat and veggies this is the place to go and the prices are very reasonable. Also has a dang good breakfast!

One of the best places to get a hearty breakfast in the metroplex. They have the best wait staff in T-town! Super friendly and fun.

They make a decent breakfast, nothing fantastic but marginally good. Been in business a long time. Atmosphere is kind of crappy like your eating in a nursing home or something but the food is ok.

Good breakfast food. Eggs however you like including poached. Grits good, add butter for the best flavor. Country ham center cut is personal favorite. Waits can be long at peak times. Historical in that Bear Bryant frequented this establishment.

This is probably THE BEST breakfast I've ever eaten. Amazing beignets, biscuits and pancakes. The staff is amazingly friendly and service was great.
