My daughter took me as a gift on a Saturday morning. It is small with a menu that I wanted to try everything listed. Many people leaving were carrying food out. Thought that was unusual. I understood why when I was able to eat only about half of my dark chocolate, cherry, cinnamon cookie and whipped cream pancake breakfast. It... More

Super quality and unique food. Can't say much about the service but a fun atmosphere and huge quantities. We recommend ordering an extra dish or two to try, then taking home the leftovers.

I would eat here everyday if I could! Love the atmosphere, the people, and even the music playing when I dine! Yes there may be a line but its well worth the wait!! I make it a point to eat there at least once a month and haven't been sorry yet!

The food we had was good, although I have eaten excellent breakfast in other places too (not in Lansing but in other cities: Seattle, Chicago, SF, etc.). Ok, for the Greater Lansing area may be fantastic since no other choices may be available (check venues in Williamston though). Said this, the rest was part of an obnoxious experience: forced to...

...and not for the claustrophobic. If you are impatient or you do not like close spaces when you eat then you should not have a problem with this breakfast "only" spot. These two points are not problematic for me, but my wife did not like sharing seating with someone she does not know. The breakfast plates they serve here are... More

Loooooooooooooooong wait! Did it in the wintertime. Great specialty breakfasts. I only gave 4 stars not 5 based on the wait time. When people are lined up to the corner I'd go elsewhere...

My daughters introduced us to this local very unique restaurant. Come in a good mood so you don't mind waiting outside for a bit. Sometimes they come out and offer you coffee. While you are waiting you can take in the unique, bizarre outdoor decor. So much to see. The restaurant is small and very crowded so if you don't... More

You'll wait outside for an hour minimum. Dress accordingly, plan your day, bring CASH. it is WORTH it. Order off the specials board. If you get to sit at the counter, that's the best seats in the house. I've NEVER had grits like theirs. Wow. Also, get the sausage on the grits. Wow. And their house potatoes. Also excellent.
