This place has been here a long time - since 1910 - and it’s been consistently good when we’ve been here. Great breakfast and lunch.

We are here on our way back to Chicago. The pimento cheese sandwich and po boys were very good. Milk shakes are phenomenal! We'll definitely come again.

Great place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Family owned and one of a kind business. If you're visiting in the area put Fava's on your list of things to do. Good food and conversation.
