They have a sign on the wall that says "Farm to Fork". It is a fact. Very good, tasty breakfast. Things like farm fresh eggs (of course), good bacon and biscuits (served hot). Homemade butter and Ketchup as well. They have something called "Cornmeal Mush"...More

This diner was hopping when we arrived, and we had a good and filling meal at a good price. Seemed like mostly locals, and the service was good and friendly.

Small cozy restaurant in a nicely converted and appointed old building in Marietta. Very friendly staff and excellent food largely consisting of sandwiches and breakfast items (served all day).
